    Ballsy move with the spinner fork. I'm curious to hear how that works out.

    VERY nice looking bikes. Most Moots bikes I see posted are very nice.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    18.75lbs! Yours gotta be one of the lightest Moots bikes I've seen. Dang, I thought my YBB was light at 24.5lbs.

    That sounds crazy light. My GF's YBB sl (14) with XTR, I9's, SID race, etc weighs in at 21.5...not sure where there would be almost 3 lbs.

    To answer some of your questions.

    I9's are the BOMB!!! The best wheels I have had, and I have tried quite a few. Had a set of SS and has been abusing them for over a year no problems at all.

    Spinner forks works good, lighter and stiffer than a SID. Got a SPUL valve acts like a lock out while standing up and sprinting. No adjustments its simple and it works.

    Full XTR will not be lighter, it all adds up here and there. SID is heavier also. When building a light bike all the little bits add up.

    Sweet build. Digging those I9's. Those skewers are the coolest thing ever, where did you get those?

    I think those welds have to be the best I've ever seen on a bike.

    to answer some of the questions...
    1. Changing to SID didn't lower the weight but increased stiffness and tracking accuracy. I was always a fan of SIDs so I figure try the new one.
    2. TUNE skewers I brought in Asia
    3. Sometimes ebay has TUNE skewers run about 100USD
    4. Weight is just under 20lbs with new fork,tires and XTR chain

    Yes I agree the welds are the best I have ever seen, just built up a Lynskey 29er SS and the welds I must say are Night vs Day
