Carrera Estremo, HBW Optimized

Carrera Estremo

Originally uploaded by Hypercat Bike Works

Excellent example of spending your money wisely. The total bill on this bike was $197.38 and what came about was slightly more than a 1/2 pound weight savings and vastly improved shifting and braking performance.

The majority weight savings is attributed to the change from the stock Dura-ace cables and housing to Jagwire L3 lined housing, Ripcord cables and aluminum ferrules. However it should be noted that this weight savings occured even with double wrapped bar tape for comfort and the addition of cable adjusters at the levers.

Whenever you can both reduce the weight of your bike and increase its performance and do it for a reasonable price, it is definitely a win-win-win. to give your bike the same treatment contact us at Hypercat Bike Works.
