    Update on 2002 Blizzard Rebuild: While enthusiastic about giving the bike a second life, the shop found cracks in the head tube and chainstay welds at bottom bracket. Sent pictures off to RM to see what they want to do. Rebuild on hold - had to buy a used Santa Cruz Highball Carbon as used market on RM Hardtails is next to nil. Would love to have picked up a used Vertex 29 Carbon instead but no such animal in the used market. Lucky to find the SC in a medium on short notice.

    Waiting to hear the verdict from RM. It is confusing as one senior tech said definitely cracked, unridable, you are so lucky it didn't go on you at speed and another independent tech said naw, it's just the paint cracking!

    Silver Lining - i get to try a carbon 29er.

    There's a 3/4 pound difference between the alum and carbon frames. Not worth the extra $1000 imo.

    Best frame i've ridden so far. Only thing missing is a Dropper post.

    Still loving the Element 970. And with the help of RMB-PM2, I now have a new set of bushings to replace the worn ones.

    Last snow of this winter (I hope):

    Got new parts for my Element.



    Race Face Turbine Stem pimped with black Ti screws (125g) and an Race Face Next SL 630mm bar (135g).









    Compared to my old set up (F99 stem and 87g 590mm Carbon bar) this Race Face combo is a bit heavier, so I ordered a new Crank set to neutralize wheight penalty










    The new season has started quite well







    Finally still 9.52kg.

    Had the hardtail out for the first time in a long while today. It was nice riding a 19.5 pound bike again. But I kept anticipating the geometry change from the Element rear suspension compression while cornering or being out of the saddle. That was amusing.

    What kind of tires are you running on the 970 and how do you find them? I'm thinking about either Mountain King II (black chili, protection) or Nobby Nics (snakeskin, pacestar) for my 950.

    If either of RMB-PMs are viewing....please get RMB protectors into your store! I have a feeling there is fairly strong demand for them....

    So went for a Gravity Dropper to finalize the build. (minus the white tie wraps,still determing the cable routing)
    And shot some better pics.

    mrwulf,

    Am I reading this correctly that your bike weighs only 9.52kg? That's just under 21lbs! Can you give us a breakdown of the components? I assume you are running tubeless?
