Although I am still running the stock XO in the 2x10 setup, I went from 23lbs6oz to 22lbs2oz just by swapping the wheels. You could be sitting at just over 19lbs with that little change. The RXLs are advertised to be in the 1700gm range but in reality they are closer to 2000.

    Nice looking bike though. BTW...is the direct mount for your front derailleur missing?

    Really? The wheels felt pretty light. Where you running them tubeless before you got rid of them? Tubes could easily account for 1lb. Ill have to look into that thanks for the heads up. I am not a super light rider so I just didn't want to go to to light on the wheels so figured these would be good to go.

    after the first romp! will never go back to 26

    I have a similar hitch rack. I've ordered a Rumblefish and will require a cross bar like yours to mount the bike on the rack. Does it work well? Any play forward and backward? I don't want my bike swinging on the rack.

    If you have a similar rack, you'll note that the bike connects using 3 rubber straps; 2 across the top of the top tube and 1 on the seat tube (vertically). This third one prevents the bike from swaying back and forth.

    I've used a Thule cross bar like the one pictured all last season with no problems.

    Thanks. That should do the trick! :thumbsup:

    Chris,

    Yes! I do run tubeless. The actual weight of the RXL wheels with no tubeless rim-strips, no valve stems or skewers is 1950gms. So, by the time you put all the tubeless stuff on, you are looking at 2100gms. The Stan's wheels I got are the standard ZTR hub, ZTR crest rim, Supercomp spokes (220lb rider weight capacity) and they weigh in at 1550gms. Those are by no means their race-day wheel....but not their super duty all-mountain wheel either.....the weight savings (especially rolling weight) is huge!

    I find it to be the perfect bike for anything the Lower Peninsula of Michigan has to offer (boy does it rock The Iceman).

    My 2011 Hifi Pro (with the seat WAY too high):

    Has been ridden around the block once, but I'm quite confident that I'll love thrashing it around the various awesome stuff the UP has to offer (I'm looking at you Copper Harbor Fat Tire Festival).

    That was actually my worst fall to date, blood wise. I've done nothing but crash since I picked this bike up a month ago. It's just so damn fast!!!

    <<<scurries off to the repair shop.

    You guys need to stick adjustable seatposts in those RF1s. Trust me. 4" ones should do the trick.

    If you feel like it, try platform pedals and Five Ten shoes (their mtb ones, not skate ones) too, but the adj seatpost is super highly recommended... almost a must. :D

    I wonder if Red Shield would cover that rim. I doubt it, but I just wonder.

    Thanks I'll stick with the stick. Get well soon.

    Ya, that'd be the nice, but I looked at other pics and see that the low angle top tube makes the seat seem higher on all these models. I don't feel like a freak anymore. If I had bought a bigger frame along, I'd feel like I was on 19th century bike. The high seat might be why tyrone feels like he is losing control at high speeds and crashing all the time.

    Nope, no the seat, I just push myself way to hard when I ride alone or at the front of the pack. Thats the only time I crash. Just need to reign myself in a little bit!

    It also doesn't help that South Florida trails are so damn tight and technical!
  • 03-12-2011
    Varaxis
    Same here--when I'm in front or ride alone, I also tend to push it. I really do think you guys should consider the adj seat. Put your seatpost down and try to ride the same high speed sections of trails. Having the seat out of the way increases your ability to guide the bike and flow so much.

    I put off trying one for a while, despite hearing the same from others, and now I'm considering it for my other bikes, but then I think that I should actually sell my other bikes since this Superfly 100 is so good.

    I bought a Mavic C29ssmax today to replace the taco'd wheel. Thoughts?
  • 03-12-2011
    Varaxis
    You can get the Front C29ssmax separate? Interesting. Hope you didn't pay much. Those come down to $500 a pair sometimes. My LBS didn't have anything 29er, but found that and suggested that to me when I had a wobbly wheel too, but I went with i9 enduros, something beefy.
  • 03-13-2011
    tyrone.minton
    Yeah, I probably over paid for it at the LBS, and yeah, he got me just the front for now since there was really no savings over buying both at the same time.

    Just found out my new wheel won't be in until first week of April! Guess I'm going back to the trusty old 26er for a couple weeks!

    Well I finaly got my baby back from the powder coaters yesterday. I built it up last night. I switched over to a 1X8 set up, added a new stem, riser bar, seat post and seat. Still need to get a new pair of grips and the LBS has a Paul chain guide on order for me. Oh I also need to put new cables all around, just threw the old on there so I could get a test ride on it. Here is a before and after. I'm not sure if I want to order new decals for it or just leave it as is, what do you think?
