    alrighty, I will be off to the bike store.

    will post scale weight and list of components.

    You see the black jedi on the left? that is 42.5 lbs, and the weight difference between the 2 bikes is large.

    Look at rsullivan's build a couple posts up. He's running a lighter fork, a lighter rear shock, and lighter wheels/tires.
    His weighs in at 35+.

    Seriously, I hope you're right.
    it'd be nice to know you can build a sweet DH machine under 35lbs.

    It was weighed at Black Mountain Bicycles in San Diego, they said their scale is accurate

    Nice MM. I'm hoping to be right around that mark too. I have a dropper (LEV) so that'll add some extra weight but I'm hoping the carbon bits, llight wheelset plus full XX1 will pull me through. So, since you're built up now: how you liking it?

    I purchased it built aside from the pedals and tires, so I can't take credit for the build. There is actually some weight to be lost in the crank set, it is currently a Shimano Deore SLX 2x9 crank set (one chain ring) and the aluminum seat post and a few other bits. If the cranks were XOs I think it would weigh in under 30lbs.
    I am not a bicycle expert but I can give you my very amateur opinion. The bike came with Canfield'd micro-drive 9-26 with a 33 tooth chain ring which is little much for climbing the really steep stuff around San Diego but I did surprisingly well with the climbs, only walking it twice for about 10-15 yards while my buddy was in his granny gear on a Giant Trance 29er. I think that either a 30 to 32 tooth chain ring or a 32 tooth cog in the rear would work. I rode all over PQ today and also went over to Ted Williams Parkway for a little bit. The bike climbs great, wheelies easy, bunny hops pretty easy, descends great and jumps nicely. I had some pedal strikes today (170mm cranks) that I think were just bad technique by an amateur rider.
    I was a little nervous after my purchase that the One would not live up to the hype but after riding it around for a few hours today, I am extremely happy.

    Madmachinist- Good looking bike, I rode that for two years, couldn't bring myself to sell it even to get a newer one. Glad your loving it. I felt like it was just dialed. I had a different crank set on it. I'd recommend getting some short removable spider cranks and a 30 tooth ring. Also you could upgrade to the 10 speed micro drive conversion. Then you get a 36 tooth easy gear to go with the 30 ring. I had a dropper on there and it was 32 lbs with pedals.

    Nice build! I've also been thinking about lightening up my park-build-One a bit, and one option would be to go for the micro drive.

    Regarding flymybike's recommendation for a short re,movable spider crankset: Is it correct that the only really short (165mm would be good for the One IMO) crakset with a removable spider is the XO DH?

    No... sram x9 should also come in 165mm. Those run the ability to use a billet micro gear

    I have a One with the micro drive 30x9-26 and a One with 34x10-42 and the micro drive crushes the XX1 11 speed set up and I have no idea why (the bikes are different builds and the 11 speed build is 5lbs heavier then the 9 speed build). I fly on the 9-26 micro drive and climb steep grades fast keeping up with my friends on Trance 29ers but if I take the 11 speed I cannot keep up at all. I am going to take Flymybikes advice and do the 10 speed 9-36 (ordered today) with a 32 or 34 chain ring on XX1 cranks. I climb no problem on the 9-26 but I want the higher speed that I get with a 32t/34t chain ring so I need the larger 36t cog to climb with a larger chain ring.

    Interesting, since 30x26 is still quite a bit stronger a gear than 34x42, and I don't think that will be offset by the weight difference.

    Did you read this post:

    My Canfield Review - The ONE, Jedi, 9t Micro Drive, Crampon Ult ?

    There, TheRage43 writes:

    "I really noticed this when I would change gears from the 36 outer ring to the 24 inner. Different gearing, same ratios, but the smaller ring always has a burst of acceleration as soon as you hit it. I found myself staying in the lower front ring as long as I could most of the time for this benefit. "

    I'm wondering if that's the difference you're experiencing? If so, you would take that advantage away from the lighter build by going for a bigger front ring...

    That is a very well written review. Before I had the 30t chain ring I had a 33t and it pedaled well with that but climbing anything steep was very difficult for me. The 34x10-42 has a completely different feel, it feels like it takes much more effort to turn the cranks going uphill even though I am able to get into a much lower gear. Both of my friends that I ride with on a regular basis tried both bikes and were scratching their heads wondering why the 9-26 pedaled so much easier. We even checked the 34x10-42 bike to see if it was binding or dragging but we couldn't find anything. Both bikes have the same length cranks. I will find out if the 32 or 34x9-36 has the same feel and report back with my opinion.

    Yep, this is probably what you are experiencing is the difference in pedaling between the 34 and 30 up front. The smaller rings work better with this suspension design, personally I would not go any bigger than a 30 up front.

    My next addition will be a Wolftooth Components 42t "add-a-ring". They're not for sale yet, but will be available in red pretty soon. Then I will have a 9-42 and probably move up to a 30t in front.

    Thank you for the information. Are you going to stick with the 9 speed or move to the 10? The 9 speed chain makes the 11 speed chain look very tiny and fragile by comparison.

    For this setup (on my ONE) I'm on 10 speed. The 9s version that the bros sell is the caprio cassette that is 9t-26t, it would be kinda hard to stack a 42t against that 26.

    What would you think of a Pike 650b + 650b wheel for The One? too light of a fork?
