My refund is on the way and I am thinking of using it to lighten my ride.

I currently have a Surly Crosscheck with the following;

Veloce shifters and rear deraileur(sp?)
105 hubs laced to Mavic rims (cannot remember which ones)
Sram cassette and chain
Thompson seatpost
Ritchey stem, with King head set,
Salsa bars and
older Ultegra cranks with crappy Schimano bottom bracket.

I was thinking of replacing the fork with a Kinesis Cross Light, seams like a good price and weight, TruVative Elita cranks and Giga Pipe bottom bracket.

Does this sound like it will make a differance?

Also, anyone used these bottom brackets? I am thinking about the Ti, but, I weigh 190 and am afraid that I might be to much.

Anu other suggestions would be helpful,

Thanks,
Derf

Thanks

Thanks for the input.

My race wheels are Ultegra hubs with tubular mavic rims. They are pretty light.

I think that I will go with the non-ti BB, I do have the un52 one. Maybe I will get the Trutive combo.

What do you guys think of the fork upgrade?
