    Schlick Cycles Northpaw

    Just finished the build today. New Schlick Cycles Northpaw, crappy Iphone pics. 24.75 ready to ride.

    I don't know why the pictures are sideways. I will get a real camera and post some better ones in an individual thread later.

    That's a sexy beast. Now we're talking. Let's get a full parts list on this bad girl. I bet she's tubeless, at that featherweight scale reading. Do get another thread going & post some hi-res bike porn pics.

    Yeah true. My rip9 is around 6.5 lbs. It's the old style 08. New ones are little heavier, but are they really 8 lbs? Another reason to keep mine going!
    Yeah, my small 907 weighed around 4. Some of the fatbacks are less than 4. Awesome! But the wheels and tires alone are so damn heavy.

    Yeah but then you need to throw in your 4+ pound suspension fork compared to a less then 2 pound carbon rigid fork. It's still tuff to swallow though my Fatback only weighs 5lbs more than my Niner air 9 but that's built a little solid.

    Reading this thread makes me feel like a NASCAR fan at a Weight Watcher meeting! My Surly Necromancer tops out at 46 pounds (Alfine hub, Slime in both Nate tires, JCPC Pedals)

    That's awesome. And you're running 90s which are heavier too. I wonder how much closer you could get. That would be interesting. Carbon bars, stem, cranks, seatpost, light seat, light pedals, foam grips, ti bolts, light rotors, brakes. Hmm. Within. 1.5-2lbs maybe. It'd be one expensive fatbike!

    That's with my over drilled RD's and Du's on with the 90's and BFL's the differnce is a little more.

    Drilling the GFS rims saved a lot. Tubless saved (dunno, exactly, but it was a lot).
    Lots of room for weight loss with heavy bars, pedals, post, tires, saddle, rims, steel rear axle, etc, etc. I but I like it how it is. Actually, I love it. Double Nate is well worth the weight, btw.

    The sandman hoggar, size L, as sold, was 14,8 kg, or 32,6 lbs.

    I changed the inner tyres with michelin latex C4 tubes, so now around 14 kg.

    Do the tires seat evenly when using these tubes? Whenever I have tried ultralight tubes in the past they would stretch and fill differently in different places causing a bump as the wheel rolled that no amount of fiddling could really solve. I was using Maxxis Flyweights so Michilen hopefully is better.

    If I use a new tire it blows in bells, After inflating to about 2 bar and deflating to the desired presure the tire works well, but i had one tire exploding pumping it in one go tot 3 bar

    If I use an older "pr stretched" tire (used for a while in a schwalbe supermotto on a normal rim, or at least pumped a few times in supermotto on a 47 mm rim the tires inflate more evenly.

    Have you tried baby powder? My brother had the same problem with a Large Marge(not light model) and his Nate. Too much rubber on rubber was the theory so he threw some GoldBond foot powder in their and it kept it even

    Baby Powder was there. The Maxxis tubes just had so much expanding to do that it wasn't even. They would even fold over themselves, it seemed like they were a 36er tube trying to fit into the smaller diameter. I still may try the Michelins.

    I can tell you from the wheel perspective, the devil is in the details.

    I have a very old wheelset, but I recently re-laced my front wheel with a new hub and spokes.

    My rear wheel has nice, butted, light weight spokes and a non-disc XTR hub (Circa 2002), 44mm rims and that wheel is 1180grams. My front wheel I re-laced with a cheap-o CODA disc hub, non-butted spokes and 44mm rim... 1290grams. Before re-lacing, I think the front wheel weighed 940grams.

    Moral of the story... sum of the parts used... small changes make big gram differences.
    - The only thing that keeps me on a bike is happiness.

    In zero gravity weight doesn't matter, on earth, during a climb,....

    But I stopped bragging about weight as I found out that a 29'er hardtail with suspended fork and offroad tires goes under 20 lbs

    that would be VARY rare if true so for the masses 26-30 is more the norm.

    This is truly drool worthy. Psyched to see so many Alu and Steel frames among the Ti bling.

    Keep 'em coming. Idea for a new thread: heaviest fattie! Racks and more, let's see the Sherpas along with these Sprinters.

    I had my Moonlander weighing in at just under 29.5 today... with cyclocross wheels. I rode it out of the house then turned around because I felt stupid.

    NVPatthy,
    untill I turned my sandman into a 29'er the heaviest 29'er in the wide area was 12,5 kg or 27,5lbs
    I guess that the hoggar with arch rims and slant 6 tires and lots of latex will stay under 30 lbs, with
    I must add that most bikes around here are still 26'ers, it are the more ambitious guys that go for the 29'er first. On the other hand, my 11 kg 26'er fully is certainly not the lightest bike around either.
