Suggest a diet for my Butcher
I recently slapped my Butcher back together- For a while i was on Carbon 456 and Chromag Aperture...but the orange beast was calling me...
Heres whats on it now:
Lyrik u turn coils
mavic 819s on hope hubs
sram x7(9 speed)
slx dbl cranks
ks i7 dropper post
The weight is at 33.3 LBS!!!!
methinks too much
I do have another set of Lyrik with dual position air, but its only.5 lbs lighter-
Would going to 1x11 drivetrain save weight?
I can also put on my Revelation forks but Im not sure if I can set them to 150 mm(factory set at 140 mm)-not sure if it gets too noodely at that height.
Would love to bring it to 30 lbs or below- I know the easy way is to buy a new carbon frame but where is the fun in that!:)
My plan is also to get wider wheels/lighter wheels-mavic 819 have been great, but I find the 19mm internal rim is just too squirrely with a larger tire like trail king 2.2.
Any suggestions would be welcome- Thanks in advance
