I know little about Lightweights but 50 grade in the primary case...........? :?

The plates were there on the guard when I got the bike but I don't like them there and the only reason I put a box on my bikes is for its handy for Tools, packed lunch, and so on

Yes, it is a bit frustrating not having anywhere to carry stuff. But I really don't like boxes on bikes so I just end up cramming it into a rucksack but that is not ideal either as my lock and chain weighs about 7 KG!!!

Not recommended Paul, if you fall off it could break your back.
