What's the weight difference between a pair of steel Paragon sliding droputs and a pair of regular droputs (say Breezer or along those lines)
I don't know, but it would have to be 3 times or more, I would figure: there are two layers, they are larger, and there is hardware. I'm guessing you save a slight amount on fractionally shorter tubes. I wouldn't use them unless the design required it.
