Received some goodies today.

Well UPS came by and dropped off some goodies for me at the shop today. I'm trying to get my Ellsworth Enlightenment down to 20 - 20.5 pounds so hopefully after I swap everything out I will be pretty close.

For starters I got some ti spindles for my chrome eggbeaters. Here are the before and after pictures.




The next component was an FSA XC-115 110mm stem. This will be replacing a Thomson.


Next are some new tires. Kenda Karma L3R DTC 2.0. These will be replacing Continental Escape and Explorers.


Here is the American Classic disc new wheelset that will be going on the bike. These will be replacing Hugi 240 / Mavic 317's. This will be the most noticable weight difference out of everything I will be doing. I can't wait to try these things out. (BTW, I know I've posted them before but I am pretty excited about them).



Here are the foam Johar grips that I have been using, thought I would post them as well. They are actually pretty comfortable.


I didn't get a chance to weigh the Ultegra 12-27 cassette yet. I am also waiting on a boone 20t and a 31t ring. That should help me out a little more on the weight.
