    I guess I'd better add mine then

    2013 AC 29er.
    Rider height: 6ft 2
    Weight: 180lbs
    Ride style, A bit of everything in the Scottish hills, XC, trail, hucker, all day epics

    * Frame, Large, Colour: ano black
    * Fork: 140mm Fox F34 29 CTD (I'm just about to convert them to 150mm)
    * Shock, Fox Float R (200x57) custom tuned by Loco Tuning
    * Brakes: Formula RX - 180/180 discs
    * Cranks: Hammerschmidt 22t ring
    * Shifters: XO / XT
    * Front Derailleur: N/A (I have a direct mount mech but it has never been used)
    * Rear Derailleur: Saint
    * Pedals: Shimano Trail (basic but dependable)
    * Stem: Easton 35 50mm
    * Handlebar: Easton 35 800mm (cut to 780mm)
    * Seatpost: RS Reverb 125mm 31.6
    * Saddle: SDG Bel Air
    * Bottom Bracket: Truvativ
    * Cassette: XT 34t 9 speed
    * Chain: Shimano Yumeya
    * Headset: Hope
    * Grips: Peaty lock-ons
    * Front Tire: Maxxis Ardent 2.4
    * Front Rim/ Spokes: Easton Haven alu
    * Front Hub/Skewer: Easton
    * Rear Tire: Ardent 2.4
    * Rear Rim: Easton Haven Alu
    * Rear Hub/Skewer: Easton c/w 12x135mm bolt through
    * Cables: xt
    * Overall Weight: Approx 32lbs.

    I'm about to go 1x10 so I'm hoping the weight will be closer to 30.5lbs by the end of the month. Then the plan is to build up a pair of carbon rims which should see the weight drop below the 30lb barrier. That's the plan anyway.

    Just 1x10 will bring that near to 30lbs yeti man :-) depending if you go Sram or Shimano, I will likely have an XX cassette available, perfect nick for very sensible money along with an xt shadow plus rear mech, xtr shifter, Xo crank with bling ring (28t for 29gnarr gearing (easy to change for bigger, 30t would be most you'd want I reckon)and chain to boot..frighteningly light (chain set alone is almost 2lb lighter than HS. Setup is lighter than xx1.

    It's a great setup, just considering putting XX1 on the Ion for no other reason than its a new bike!

    Pm me if you're interested.
