    I wish I could say it was mine, I just found the photo on a german site. Looks like they are actually the claimed weight. Converting the price from Euro to $, it looks to be around $250 US.

    That is PRETTY!
    I think polished aluminum with ano'd bolts will look as nice. I like how the whole unit is behind the BB, a little less exposed than the LG1s, etc. I know it is the way it is to save grams, but just a tiny bit of modding and I don't see why it couldn't use a bash. I really don't think a Supercharger weighs enough for me to risk taking off. I'm more concerned with consistent dependability than I am about an ounce or two.
    And I've seen ano'd bolts but nothing that long...anyone have a link to something comparable?

    It needs a carbon roller with ceramic bearings in it to be totally tricked out. I think the price is pretty similar to the MRP System 3 Carbon, which I love, its durable like crazy and super light. Its awesome

    A completely mangled chain and ring will end a race run quicker than another 150g. And I'm also a weight weenie. No thanks.

    Exactly, it doesn't exactly have to hold up to repeated hits on a slalom bike. Unless it's Vigo's 4x course.
