    Please share how you got the spearfish to that weight and a pic would be cool.

    My Highball comes in at 21lbs almost exactly, gears, forks, discs (and a whole bunch of ti bolts and a few weight weenie touches scattered all over it!)

    More photos & build spec on my blog HERE

    I'm happy it was well worth the effort to shave the weight, if feels fast!

    Air9 without pedals. I am going to be changing a few parts on the current setup, so it will probably be a bit heavier than than its current weight

    Motobecane Fantom hardtail - still in parts, but in *theory* it should come in just under 20#
    Part of that will depend on which wheels I end up with - Mavic or Crankbros.

    I love the look of the Cranks bros wheels seem to be stronger than previously (cobalt 3), Mavics good weight too but don't look as good....have you seen an reviews for Cranks yet?

    Seems mixed so far. One of the good guys at my LBS just bought some, so I'm waiting to see how badly he destroys them

    No just for Weight weenies like me. All kidding aside a light weight bike is more fun to ride, they are just easier to throw around. They start and stop easier, climb easier stuff like that. Will it make a big difference or make you any faster? Not anything you will notice unless you spend a ton of money and then it is still not much.

    Go ride a heavy bike, be happy and don't worry about it.

    Exactly
    It's a pretty large cost difference to shave more than a bit of weight off a part - and unless you really notice it (wheels), it's probably not worth it to most people.

    I try to save weight first on anything that spins (like wheels), then if I feel up to it, I'll go after the other stuff. Stuff like seat weight I really don't worry about

    If you are over 10% body fat then you should worry more about dropping weight off of yourself instead of dropping weight off of your bike

    Salsa lists the weight of the medium Spearfish 1 (top of the line) as 26.4 lbs without pedals. Looking at the components on the stock build, it would be difficult to shave off 4 pounds. I suspect the spearfish owner got the weight via the bathroom scale method, or perhaps transposed the numbers. It's easy to imagine a 25.2 lb Spearfish. Still a very light FS complete bike.

    Yeah seems like 25lb is possible maybe even 24.5 but sub 23 unlikely.

    In the Salsa forum there is a weight thread on the 'fish and most are 26-27

    Wow 13.5 kg = 29.7 lbs, What did you upgrade? I rented a 19" Rumblefish Elite today and it weighed in at 32lbs stock. What I could not believe was that the stock wheel set - weighed a whooping 5 kg = 11 lbs, as they were Rims/Tires/Tubes.
    So, if no one needed wheels, what an awesome 21lb bike.. lol. I was the first one to ride it, 4 leg burning trail hours, I was hooked. Buying it Monday... smile.
    night riding - it's an adiction

    Your best step will be going to Carbon Rims and going tubeless...

    What do you think about niner carbon fork, i am willing to buy one on wednesday but still can not decide, on the one hand there is comfort of suspension on the other hand lightness of niner fork?
    My last upgrade will be chinese carbon rims with novatec d711 hubs and dt swiss revo spokes what do you think about this setup?

    I'm may not be the one to ask about carbon forks...If your riding in smooth terrain, I guess it's good. But I'm 50, and at at my age, I look for a little more comfort. I'm also biased to Lefty front shock ... There are some Rock Shox SID front forks that are extremely light, but it may be at the expense of front fork rigidity. I would get a LEFTY shock, but like I said I'm biased to the shock. IMHO they work better than any other shock and lighter also.

    GOOD LUCK!!!

    Just had my new Niner build delivered today...a bit disappointed.

    Niner Jet 9 size XL
    Stan's Arch front and rear
    Maxxis Aspen and crossmark tubeless
    XO 2x10 build
    Manitou tower pro 100mm w/15mm thru
    Easton carbon monkeylite XC lo rise
    WTB wolverine saddle
    Thompson seat post and stem

    Just shy of 30lbs

    Have raced an old 26" FS Fisher size LG for years and it was 28.25 so not a huge jump up going to a size bigger on a bigger bike, but the Niner is spec'd out much nicer than the Fisher was. Was very surprised at 29+ lbs.

    My medium Niner Jet 9 alloy frame weighed in at 6.5#. Niner SRAM X7 Complete Bike came in at just around 28# Shimano SPD-540 pedals.

    What hubs did you go with?
