isn't that going a bit crazy, and expensive to say the least for a rather small weight reduction?Krause racing markets what they call a titanium mx chain, not sure which parts of it are titanium, but they claim it is the lightest on the market. It is not cheap but is not unreasonable I believe they also make titanium rear rotors for the big 4 mx bikes. maybe they could be adapted.
I wasn't just on about that particular post, I was also looking at the Ti spring and rotors. you gotte admit they are pretty pricey options that probably won't result in a lot in the end. then again the wheels and pipe are also very pricey but I do think those items will add to a real considerabel difference.I know this has nothing to do with shaving weight, but I’ve got about 400 miles on my SMC now and I love this bike! No problems whatsoever, but the gearing feels wrong for street riding / canyon carving / running from the law. My thoughts right now are to drop 1 tooth off the front and add 2 or 3 teeth to the back. Anybody care to share your thoughts on this?
