900g shift knob?

Are you psycho?

Why would you need that much weight?

A smart idea would be to make the top part removable and hollow so you can add your own weights, just like gaming mice these days which can have weights added.

You would be the only one with a gear knob like that.

Nice idea, nice implementation but too heavy I think. I wonder how much the skunk2 weights which is also heavy.

Edit: Found it. 400 gr.

Does seem a bit excessive - but you never know until you give it a go!

Won't that much weight damage the cams in the shift unit? My mate mentioned awhile back very vaguely that all shifters have a weight tolerance or something. Could be completely wrong though
