Ah but it's part of the drivetrain, a light drivetrain is worth more than a weight saving elsewhere

You must have a light speedo, I only have to add 10grams although it's 40g if I use 3000's.....
I do use the alloy battery strap though, and have heavyish paint in my shells, since it's can jobs.

I'd strugle to find room for 50grams though
