    Wow nvphatty! I guess I hadn't seen the finished product yet. Last I knew you were working on getting orange wheels.

    That is one well sorted out bike!

    One more for sticky!!!

    When I started to build my bike, this thread could be a big help. Gives you ideas, and in a lot of cases if you have questions you know who to ask...
    On the other hand, I love to see other folks' builds. Still gives me reasons to spend some $$$$.
    Thanks.

    I think it's worthy. A good place to get details of a build along with pics, rather than just pics.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    Have a bath man, it's the best way to get the sand out from down there.

    Seriously though, threads get lost very quickly here due to the huge number of new threads each day. Having this made a sticky just means it's less likely someone will try to start a similar thread. Not trying to defend nvphatty, I just think it's a good idea for a sticky.

    Yeah, I know, when you mentioned other good threads for stickies, tubeless is what sprang to my mind too.

    Hi, I'm not sure which online store I purchased it from, but when I tried to find it last time I noticed there are no more of these to find. As a matter of fact I have mine for sale, I replaced it with a wider bar. If you're interested send me a private message and I can take measurements.

    Really Good Looking Build!! Orange Eveything

    Niner Tang Bars and Stem to match! And yes, those are orange anodized nipples on white revolution spokes. Unfortunately the Carver O'Beast fork was just installed this week. To bad this website can't host anything but ultra low res photos....

    Pokyrider, that is a great looking bike!
    I am jealous of the weight though! I just built one too, same frame and many similar components, and it was over 32 lbs! I'll have to do the math to see where it went. Wat's the weight of the crankset/bottom bottom bracket?

    And yet another "Christmas present for my wife"

    (It really is, she's been asking for one for one fior a while, and at 6'5", a size S frame just isn't going to work for me)

    32 lbs, 9 oz with pedals, without cage.



    Now we just need some more snow! But hey, that's what the studs are for right?



    • Frame/fork:
    • 170mm/44HT frame from 9zero7, size S
    • Salsa Beargrease fork - light

      Wheels:
    • Hope Fatsno Hubs - fairly light but affordable, have been reliable for me in regular bikes.
    • ButtedDT Swiss spokes
    • Brass nipples - less corrosion and harder, so easier to true in future
    • Clownshoe rims - max float when you need it, good support for low pressure tires to prevent squirm.
    • Surly light tubes
    • Escalator 180 TPI with 200 studs / Dillinger 120 TPI fully studded - Rivers are fun to ride and our regular trails get icy to sometimes.

      Cockpit:
    • Salsa 15degree carbon bar - comfy shape, light
    • Specialized ergo lock on grips
    • Specialized Ariel wms saddle with Ti rails.
    • Gravity dropper seatpost. - The only coil-sprung, fully mechanical dropper post, so no worries about pressure dropping in the cold or seals getting stiff
    • Specialized Lo-Pro Mag pedals

      Drivetrain:
    • XT 9speed 11-34 cassette- fairly light, good price, spider to protect freehub body. 11t cog removed to clear Big Fat Larry when needed, not missed.
    • 45NRTH Willfull neglect chain - cheap and should do well in road salt.
    • Surly MWOD crankset, regular spindle, 20t-33t-bash chainrings, 1mm spacers used to clear FD with crankarm. -offset rings to clear fat tires, small rings to give back the low gearing of a regular 26" bike with 22/34, bash for the same reason as in summer plus protecting against bulky winterpants and for hike-a-bike sections.
    • X7 shifters -used to SRAM, 9 speed for easier shifting set-up in the cold and cheaper replacements.
    • XT front derailleur - no other models available.
    • X7 rear derailleur 9spd - works well, and is cheap to replace

      Brakes:
    • Avid Elixir 7, 180/160mm rotor

    I weighed them before assembling my bike, but I can't remember. Race Face claims a weight of 950 grams.

    Also, now that I have everything on my bike as shown, it some how gained weight. It is closer to 30 lbs. as shown.

    I put a 170 mm Race Face Evolve crankset on my bike; 24-36-bash. The BB weighed 114 g and the cranks weighed 906 grams.

    The Turbine should be just a little lighter as it has an Al small ring instead of the steel one on the Evolve. And the Turbine may have a little more machining done as well. So 950 grams is probably about right...

    I can't find a listed weight for the MWOD crankset, and didn't weigh it myself, but the regular Mr Whirly is 1110g, so about 1200g for the MWOD seems likely.

    So the extra weight compared to your build, I have:

    About 250g more for the crankset

    About 200-350g more for the dropper seatpost.

    200g more for my rims

    40g more for my front tire, 150 less for my rear?

    180g less for my fork

    So I can see about 13-18 oz total extra weight in those parts.

    So I can see about 1-2 lbs total extra weight, including random weight variations, like in tires.
    I am also using Bontrager tubes which are quite a bit lighter than the Surly tubes. I have been running them for a few years on my snow bikes with no issues...yet

    I had forgotten the fork, so for the 'big ticket' items, I now only come up with about 13-18 oz. The rest must be in the tubes, the little bits(rotors, stem etc) and random weight variations. Tires can vary 10% in weight from their listed weights pretty easy.

    Small frame Pugsley
    Surly hubs / Fat Sheba Rims
    Surly tubes with Larry / Endo tires
    Eno cranks with Phil Wood BB (WI freewheel)
    XT brakes
    Thomson / Enve stem and bars
    King headset
    Thomson post
    Brooks Ti saddle
    Ergons
    Candy pedals

    ... and a bell.

    Considering drilled darryl's with lighter tubes/tires to try and shed some weight since it almost never sees snow and it gets raced from time to time.
