    I hope to get it down to 22 with some smaller tires (I don't need 2.25's) maybe some 2.1 Rocket Rons , Some ultra light rotors and maybe rotor cranks. As it is now there are alot of ti bolts, ceramic head set and BB, foam grips and a seat post that scares me a bit at 134g. I have a few more tricks up my sleeve. I miss the days of standard qr hubs front and rear as I am light enough that I don't need the stiffness benefit.

    Congrats on the new ride. Looks amazing. The weight is insane if correct. Love the fat bike too.

    I just prefer the weight savings and simplicity of the old qr standard. I personally don't even like having 15 mm front axle.

    maybe you're just using the wrong axle. my bolt-on rear is 55g WITH the bolts. what's a rear qr weigh? i can't even find what size the rear is on the evolve.

    Ugh. Another useless standard foisted on riders for nothing more then to force people to buy more stuff.

    realistically both 9mm qr and 15mm have the same action necessary to remove thanks to the lawyer tabs and there is a negligible weight difference (the 15mm hub tends to weigh less than the 9mm hub). in this particular case, it seems that it's simply a matter of <40g overall that trumps everything so even the "standard" standard of 20mm isn't going to be desirable.

    Makes a world of difference if you're over 200lbs
