    some weights of things ive upgraded

    saw a few people ask for weights so while doing some upgrades I figured I would throw these on the scale. grips with end cap 85.2 g, bars 340.5 g, stem 133.6 g. these weights were measured with a crappy harbor freight digital scale. these may not be the exact weights of all stock parts. there will always be a little difference form part to part but its a close measurement.

    I thought the same thing. I have not been able to find the real weights anywhere else of the wire version and I did not weight the other tire while it was off to convert to tubeless for some reason, only the front.

    I have a Felt with the same tires still running tubes. I'll try to pull one of them off and check it.

    Re: some weights of things ive upgraded

    I'm actually on my 2nd set of akas, the folding version this time. Its pretty well documented that they run about 50g over the claimed weight, but 906g is nearly 140g over the claimed weight for the wire beads! Unacceptable.

    I wish geax made a "race" version of the tire to compete with the ikon, race king, etc. I love the tires but not the weight

    My next upgrade will be wheelset/tires. I could run the Ikon 2.35s and still save weight over the stock tires.

    I'm also thinking about running those. Kinda stuck between then and the ikon 2.2's

    I'm leaning toward running the ikon 2.35s front and back. At least until things dry out in the spring. Any thoughts on this?

    I'd probably run the 2.35 front and 2.2 rear. While the 2.35 will fit in the back, mud/snow/leaf clearance will be limited.

    I was wondering if 2.4's would fit in the rear. I am running the VeeRubber Speed-R 2.4 (got it for free, figured I'd try it) on the front and am really, exceedingly happy with it, especially since its full price is $26 for a folding 120tpi tire. It's basically an Ardent knockoff and I don't notice any difference in how it rolls vs. the AKA, and quite a bit lighter than the stock AKAs. Thought about trying it on the rear once I kill both of the AKA's but looks like I'll go with the 2.2 version. Thanks for posting this.

    No worries.

    One of the proto frames I'm riding right now has plenty enough clearance for 2.4's but I'm currently running 2.2's on it for the fall for increased clearance. On a ride a few weekends ago with a friend on his Goblin and big Nevegals, he had to stop several times to clear leaves and debris that were collecting near the BB area and slowing him down. I wasn't having any problems, and my traction wasn't suffering a bit from what I could tell.

    Jeremy-

    How do you think clearance would be on a 1x10 setup? Is the fd clearance the main concern or is it the stays?

    On a 2x10 system it's really the stays and the bridge in front of the rear tire.

    Holy crap I had no idea the AKA's were that heavy. After getting 2 thorn punctures in the last 3 rides I'm ditching them pronto. Going tubeless with something a bit more puncture resistant.

    I loved the High Roller (rear) and Ignitor (front) setup I had on my 26er.

    Confirming the bar weight. Mine weighed in at 339g versus the replacement carbon bars at 169g.

    I absolutely love them. 710mm and half the weight of the stock 640mm ones. The vibration dampening is very noticeable. Best part is that they were only $99 from Amazon.
