    My light-bike, full suspension 8960gr (PHOTO'S)

    Hi, my name is Gerard from Spain, and I this is my bike, the weight is only 8960gr on size XL, and disc brakes, good, no?
    There are 100mm on front suspension and 70mm on rear. The weight of pair of wheels, there are 1330 with the bolt in the front wheel for the hub.
    I tuned many of pieces, for exemple, I change the piece of seatpost, the original there are in aluminium, and I changed for a piece of carbon that I'm builted.
    Also I tuned the front derallieur 94gr, and the sram grift shift xo, the final weigth of shifters there are only 165gr, the problem to down much weight there are that the sram xo are builted 90% of plastic.
    More... the rotors take 3 bolts of ti and 3 bolts of alu.

    I hope that they like so much as to my .

    Very nice! Great attention to detail on the parts spec. Why the XTR crank vs a Cannondale SI given the SI is about 100g lighter?

    Bottle cages? Also, do you run the granny up front? It looks like the frt mech will/is very close to the chainstay.

    I use a Tune 8gr, but i think that not include with the total weight of the bike, because you can take a Camelback.
    And... the rest of the phrase... I'm sorry but I don't understand, can you repeat?
    Front mech=front derallieur┐?

    Very cute, nice!

    You`re running an XL frame with 120 mm stem? What is your height?

    Very interesting: what about the chainrings on the 2007 XTR crank. Are there normal 64/104 mm 4-bolt chainrings from TA? Did they fit without problems? What about the weight compared to the stock Shimano Chainrings?

    With alu disc rotors and MaxxLight 310 in 1.95 it seems this bike has a setup for a national or international XC Racer professional. Not for everyday use, right?

    Very nice bike gerardrev!
    2 questions though:
    1. Did you trim the length of the Formula hoses or are they stock length?
    2. Does the Stan rotor rub against the pads?

    well, the frame size is L, but I said there are a size xl to compare with the other model of bike, the frame scalpel is most big than others, for exemple the size L of scalpel there are 51cm of vertical tube, whereas the standard size L there are 48cm.

    Yes the chainrings there are compatible, only the small chainring, that you have built the other way around. There are 50gr of diference, it's interestig.
    Normally I take a larsenn tt 1.95 ust, it depends on the circuit and the use.
    Thanks but, the use, there are... xc. I race on downhill, and the scalpel there are to take a form and techique, the last year run some race, but it's only a hobbie, I'm not professional racer. I'm a person that I like built the bikes with good pleasure and personally, and on a xc bike there are most important the weight.
    Also the bike of donwhill only weight 16.9 kg, there are a orange 223, with boxxer wc, mavic 823, xo, avid etc...

    Hi Kayba, yes I cutted the hoses, because there are many large.
    The rotors rub a bit, but i think there is because I dont release the bike, I hope that a few km the position of pads and operation improve "the running".
    Bye!!

    only one word: PERFECT
    The weight was only 1330gr, the rims there are more strong, and the nipples sapim there are fantastic because did the wheels very rigid. Only, the rear hub... I prefer a tune hub, but I dont have any money haha.

    That bike is amazing, and I'm not a Cannondale lover. Sure love that one though. I can't even imagine how fast it would be.
