In the quest to save weight and maximise efficiency of your bike, why not shed unused bottle cage bolts and replace with Silicone Tidds. Tidds weigh 90% less than the unused steel bolts they replace & look super clean. Each lightweight Tidd comes in at 0.25g – so lighten up, grab a pair of Tidds. Fitting instructions!
Tidds up close
Tidds are deceptively simple… OK, they’re rubber plugs, but the design and materials used result in an elegant little component that offers a quick & cost effective weight saving. Suited to road or mountain bikes, the Tidds will stay in place & can easily be extracted should you wish to use a cage. Available in three colours, black, white & (of course) pink, Silicone Tidds save a bit of weight, protect threads & clean up your frame visually.

Came across a really nice article detailing the build on what must be one of the lightest bikes in the world. The frame and components are nearly all custom and can’t be purchased off the shelf.
There is something really elegantly simple about a machine like this. Stripped of all unnecessary weight and with the lightest, most efficiently engineered components possible, it’s a real work of art.
