    Thank you. I just realized I typed in 26.10. I fat fingered that one. It was supposed to be 29.10.

    I may be opening a can 'o worms here, but these may be some fun carbon rims to play with once they are in production. Looks like they are going to be 90's. I've got the carbondales and XX1 and the bike is like a magic carpet ride up the hills. Quite a change from my 40+ pound Pugsley.

    Where's yer pic and what do you mean by exaggerated?

    A little weight here and there really add up. I really tried to go lower than 23 lbs with my fork but don't think I can do it.
    Build at: Aiming for sub 20lbs Fatbike build.... Lightest 31.6mm mtb seatposts?

    Your wheels are tanks. The tubes, XT components and lock on grips don't do you any favors either.

    I've been going over your specs and we are pretty close with the Bud and Lou build except I have db spokes, brass nips, and I lightened up my clownshoes about 75g that and my post is about 75g lighter. My bars are about 40g lighter as well I have Hope tech3 brakes and rotors but I can't imagine the weight is much different. The only thing I can see is the tubes as I am tubeless with just a wrap of stans and fluid, which tubes are you using? I've seen big weight differences in the Bud and Lou's as well but if I remember My Bud is on the heavy side. My weight is right at 27.10 on a Park scale with egg beaters.

    The saddle looks like it'd be at home on a clown-bike, otherwise, nice.

    LOL. It is an odd looking saddle yes. But at 37g it's uber lite, has a little flex for cushion and the short nose I thought would be great for maneuvering when riding deep snow. I will review when I can get out for a ride on it. I think it was a great choice considering it's capability, weight and use.

    Dude, every time I stop by the shop I ask if your bike has arrived...

    Hoping my damn hubs arrive today so I can get my Salsa built up. The skiing quality right now is not compelling.

    Sitting here drinking coffee looking at Angora ridge/Tahoe Mountain, there's pretty much no snow up there.

    Maybe you should go back to Utah

    Hear ya, guess I'm used to delays after waiting forever on my HDR, your probably asking about it more than me , I've learned to not trust release dates on new bikes anymore.

    Andrew, I just got my Yampa and I was waiting to see how my Revelate Designs frame bag would work from my Moonlander before buying a new one. I had a large Moonlander and a large Yampa now. The bag fits pretty well. Good enough that buying a new one isn't on the radar for now.

    Idahomountain, in at 22.2 pounds. Now that's a target to shoot for.

    Here's what my Borealis XX1 looked like last night at 9pm.


    It didn't take too long for it to look like this.


    Dang, 26 pounds currently. I hope they get those Carbondale rims in sooner than later although yesterday wouldn't be too soon.
