Cheap Weight Tip #14: Custom Canti studs
Sean of Vertigo Cycles sent this one in:
"Do they have to be simple?
Let's say you have a couple of feet of 1/2" O.D. 6/4 Ti bar stock lying
around, some time on your hands access to a lathe. It would also help if
you were an enormous geek. I made some Paul's specific brake mounts for my
Reynolds Ouzo CX fork. The little buggers save 16 grams...unholy."
Basically, Paul's brakes require a metal sleeve. Sean fabricated a canti stud so that you wouldnt need that sleeve. Sweet!
