If you're like me then you're obsessed with replacing heavy steel bike parts with lightweight titanium or aluminum. The lever clamp bands were like the last bits of steel on the bike. Fortunately Shimano chose to make these in titanium for the new Dura Ace 7900 levers, and since they looked like every other Shimano clamp band, I was sure they would work on the Dura Ace 7800 levers, which they did. But the price of these little guys; OMG! over 50 bucks a piece! Well that's a lot of dead presidents to save a few grams of weight. Fortunately, Tree Fort had the best price on these guys. The one other dislike: you can't see them, unless you leave them somewhat uncovered with the bar tape, which I did!
