Haven't weighed it yet but what do you think, 16-17kg? Couldn't install the chain guide yet due to my lack of spacers, should be getting some tomorrow.
Thanks! :D I guess its pretty similar to your build apart from the colour, raw does look sick though :) How much does yours weigh?

Brakes--> Hope or XO levers for the Codes
Cassette--> Some sram 1080-1090
Rear tyre--> Some 2,4 UST, possibly
Seat Post--> I-Beam Carbon/Atlas
Seat--> I-Beam Atlas
That should shed some weight off :) Lets see what I can afford...
So, I've just finished rebuilding the bike :)
There was slight problem with headset, one part was missing, but it's done :)
Surprisingly, even though, the frame is rad heavier, the bike is still 14,82kg :) Or maybe my scale broke down and doesn't show anything else!? :D
wheel base: ca. 1170mm
BB height: 345mm
TT horizontal: ~555-560mm
Dam, sweet Glory man! Nice job!!!
Yup, not a big fan of the Glory but that one looks just sick! Maybe its the SC crown that makes it for me. Damn that's light though!
And it's gonna be lighter ;) With new shock and upgraded wheels :)
2008 XL Frame, CCDB Shock
Zocchi 66 fork
Saint Cranks, Straitline pedals, E-13 LG1 Guide
New Code brakes
X9 Deraileur + Shifter
Deity Dirty 30 Bars, Deity Stem (not in picture), Deity seat
Maxxis DHR II 3c front tire, Maxxis High Roller II Maxxpro compound rear
Love this bike. Rode Whistler on it this summer.
Hi, check my bike:)
Garage made steel frame, 190mm of travel
66 RC3 fork
DHX 4.0 shock
MTX rims, Novatec hubs, Minions with butyl casing
Shimano SLX brakes and cranks, Shimano Tiagra rear derailleur and cassette
E13 Freechucker chainguide
Atomlab, Sunline, DMR, RooX, ODI and HT components
18,4kg, 40,5 lbs
I was building on a budget and rather for indestructibility than weight. That frame maybe looks funny, but it's not the first of its kind and it's well proven construction with intuitive geo. I'm really happy with it:)
The leverage ratio on that shock looks like it just wont work!?
Angle of shock is weird but it works well. It's pretty plush and bottomless, almost:D
Very nice job.

Norco Truax entry for my single crown FR bike. Still fine tuning the setup. Right now it sits as follows:
Med frame with Vivid Air R2C and Talas 180 (nice to have the Talas for the climb up the hill)
Just installed 1 degree angleset cup for a 64.5 degree head angle
35mm stem (bike runs a little large for my taste in a medium)
740 x 40mm riser bar (tried low riser didn't like the feel)
X9 drive train
KS i900 dropper post (shared between bikes)
Bike weight between 37.5lbs and 35.5 depending on tires
One set of wheels built more sturdy and running 2-ply DH tires
Second set of wheels a little lighter with 1.5 ply running tubeless (also used on my trail bike)
Only had a few rides and just getting comfortable on it, but liking the ride for sure.
Will update pics asap.
Quoting myself, finally got ahold of a 2011 Delirium frame! The Nomad is long gone! Cant wait to build it up!
