    Well it certainly had that potential until you replied.

    Do you have a source for those, Ed? I was told my next build requires the "Barbie" version. I would like to be able to EP if possible.

    I have been told already that those make you're bike lighter. . .but "faster"?? I don't know if I buy that. . .

    They weigh about 2kg...much lighter than the lead bar end plugs that preceded them.

    Gastro, Barbie sucks...Dora rules!!! (good luck finding Dora Razzle Tazzles though-I thought I was gonna get kicked out of the store b/c of the scene I caused when they told me that Dora was sold out)

    When you install your new Razzle Tazzles, you need to put a lighter spring in your fork b/c they cause aerodynamic "lift" at high speeds which decreases preload. For better high speed handling, you should balance it out with one of those 6' fiberglass sticks with the big orange flag at the top installed at the far rear end of the bike...it's easiest if you just jam it down between the rear derailleur cable.(that way it doesn't snag on anything...no need for a Shadow) The combination will give the bike a lighter "overall" feel at speed without affecting slow technical singetrack handling.

    So, you can do bigger gaps at the same speed as before? Will we see a Ti version on Dh rigs soon?

    They are carbon fiber. They're just not woven together or resin'd up. It's "nude carbon" at its finest.
