These look ideal, thanks for the link. Wish they did silver ones in all the sizes, but I guess I can't be too picky :)

Normally though I'm already in underpants and jeans, which would necessitate taking them off and putting on cycling pants.

Sorry, I shouldn't come on here when I'm still half asleep in the morning. But yes, many lighter bikes are out there :)

The smaller I can't be bothered to figure out but I'll take your word on it. Doesn't Bike Friday make a variety of lighter bikes though? There's also stuff like the A-bike, the Ultra X; both lighter...

Are you saying it's not possible to mount a ring in such a way you can still use the big ring? Even with spacers and long bolts of some sort?

I'd rather just be able to wear my normal jeans. Cycling pants also don't help with the time saving when I'm going on a 2 min jaunt down the shops. Thanks for the suggestion though.

"Bash guard" on road cranks?

For my commuting bike, as I'm sure with many people, one of my biggest frustrations is issues pertaining to my trouser leg and the chainring. I've torn apart a couple of pairs of jeans on the larger...

The one I have more issue with is the "the world's lightest" claim. Best can be subjective, but the lightest part can be easily proven to be objectively wrong.

It's not travelling as such, more that my life just moves around a fair amount.

Thanks for the advice though, it's something I may consider. Like I say though, I get emotionally attached to bikes....

So if I do paint it and it does get chipped it doesn't really matter at all apart from aesthetically?

If I'm paying for a custom I'd rather be able to go and chat to the people in person, see the workshop, look at paints etc. Being in the UK that would be tricky with Seven. Thanks for the info though.
