    Nice build. How heavy is the frame? WIth those parts I would've thought you could pull off 17 lbs w/ a suspension fork...

    Thanks for the comments

    Bike was built as a reliable & strong dirt crit racer (no need for a susp fork) with fairly standard parts, sure could make it lighter but would mean even more $$$

    Frame is not super light at about 1.4kg but is stiff and strong, Pace forks are around 700gm (maybe less), no idea of weight of the rotors

    Rocket Ron/Furious Fred combo works well for intended use, and being a stiff frame accelerates like a rocket but also has the compliance of carbon

    As the builder and rider of the above bike i can say it is a pleasure to ride. the forks are 420mm long so it steers very quickly. tyre combo is very fast an light. it must be said that the rear tyre has no grip in a straight line but once you lean it over it is fine. The trained eye will note the Easton Road seat post and carbon headset cap from Pro Machine, Ritchey WCS stem (logos removed) and small touches like the upper and lower head set cups are not the same, lower one is deeper (fitted with alloy crown race) to lower the front even further. The factory seat clamp is fitted with Ti bolts. XO rear gear is short cage with 12-27 tooth Dura-Ace road cassette. Token crankset is fitted with alloy chain ring studs and has had both the plastic centre sleve and the cup spacers removed from the BB the chain line has been improved with custom machined alloy spacers on the spindle. It is not the lightest frame as stated above but super quick and can still be trail ridden. when not racing it wears 2.25 and 2.4 Racing Ralph tyres.The forks are 646g cut and the rotors are about 90g each.
    I think the frame was about 1.45lkg

    The binding is plastic coated copper wire for winding electric motors and transformers.
    The wheels weigh 1125g for the pair.
