    Cool, but not that light for the road bike! And what's reason for suspension in this case?

    If that's your thing, but me, meah, I'm with the rest - road bike Don't understand why you didn't just go full 23mm slicks on that thing instead of the Furious Freds Let us know how it stands up when you crash, OK

    Other than my skepticism on the rotors- very cool.
    Light builds don't work everywhere or for everyone but it is interesting to see where people take things.

    I would ride it.

    Try the Michelin Wild Race'r Ultimates. I just posted a review of them in Wheels and Tires. Came in at 455 and 467g's. I am pretty sure that's lighter than the Furious Freds and they actually work. I've use the Fred's, they're junk.

    I am using as a MTB for Cross Country....I mean.... if it rains or the track is wet... Not good as the tires do not have enough grip... But for training and competition... Priceles...

    What, pray tell, do you think is particularly "weak" about that bike?

    The thought process that says "Heavy = strong" is ass-backwards. 8" DH bikes used to weigh 50lbs. Now they're in the low 30s. Is there some reason that XC bikes can't follow the same progression?

    I'd advise you to watch Nino Schurter rip on his 17lb 650b Scale. He'd blow your doors off. Some people have the skills to make a light bike work for them, others are hacks, and need 34lbs of metal and rubber to ride XC trails.

    That would not a make a good all mountain bike. It's a few ounces too light.

    Awe Duke you hurt my feelings, now I'll go cry in a corner cause the racer boy was mean Yeah I bet Nino would school a lot of people. There's a lot of difference between need and have.
