My LBS has TI tire irons. 12 bucks for two, I swear they weigh less than the business card they are mounted on.

$340 for a chain certainly isn't my cup of tea. I wonder if the NOS 9 speed chains are half price as I don't have any 10 speed components?

Edit: That single 10 speed chain costs about the same as 26 SRAM PC-59 chains. Guessing 3000 miles per chain that would be 78,000 miles. I'll stick with my old 9 speed junk.

... man you guys pay a lot for dope. Thats more than double street price, and in american haha...

Seriously does anyone ride that kind of chain. I am a ghetto child I guess but I go for strong -> value -> weight

Then you would HAVE to get two Ti cages to match !! Then the Ti bolts for the cages then.............




They match the frame perfectly slvoid !! You need them.

Khuon, I did a search, but came up with nothing.

Raiyn, I saw it in a catalog a while back, and was reminded of it by something (God only knows), and thought we could get some interesting comments here on the forums.
