    Thanks. I've trimmed the der cables to where I want them (only took two times) and got the OURY grips cut to size and mated with the twist shifters; so I've only got a few more things to do before I takes some glamor shots and post them. A that point you will be able to see it better.

    EJC, what do you weigh R2R? According to notubes.com (I have ZTR flows on my bike and HD tires setup tubeless) I should be able to rune 20/23, but I've heard people say that Stan's formula is too low.


    For reference (from notubes.com):

    Rider Weight in pounds divided by 7 = x

    x - 1 = Front tire pressure in PSI

    x + 2 = Rear tire pressure in PSI

Typical setup for other conditions I use 32F/ 35R for hardpack conditions, 28F/32R dry/ loose... all tubeless mind you.
    Thanks for the info! I've decide to save people's air pressure info a file so I can find what works best for me.

    Why the higher air pressure for hard pack? Is that to compensate for harder landings or does it help with cornering (can't imagine it would)?

    Andinio, congrats, first UK Chilli posted i believe. Pretty similar build to what I am planning except probably will use BOS Stoy shock. How are you finding it?

    Fantastic! Thanks. First ride was on Sunday in Surrey Hills. Bike climbs really well with lots of grip. Overall feels light and poppy but still planted on the descents. Just set the sag and eft the shock at the stock settings - will possibly make some adjustments over the next few rides...

    185 RTR. Which would put me at 25/28 with that formula, but from my experience every wheel/ tire combo is a little different. On another setup I never run lower than 30 psi, but the HD's at 30 felt more like 40 in comparison.

    Yes, didn't make it to BKB - spent most of the day on Leith and in Redlands which were great until the rain. It'll happen sometime soon though, no doubt...

    ...and height-adjust seat post. It probably would be under 30 lbs easy with HD tires and Thompson seat post.

    If I had a air fork, Enve post, Enve stem, lighter brakes and lighter tires I'm sure I could get it under 29lbs. I'm not much of a weight weenie, I just like to build my bikes to last.
    Besides this 33lb bike feels better to me than all of the sub 29lb bikes that I've rode.
