2013 Tallboy with Talas 120MM fork, XT shifters and brakes, XTR cranks, pedals, and derailers, Hope hubs, Stans ZTR rims, King headset, Easton carbon bars and seat post, Panaracer rampage front and Schwalbe racing ralph rear tires, after 20 years of riding I have built the perfect bike!:thumbsup: Thanks Colorado Cyclist for a great build and letting me spec the bike. Large frame, 26.lbs even just under 6k price
Best looking blue frame I've seen. :thumbsup: You have me reconsidering color choice now.
Here's my new beastie. Specs are:
Large Alloy frame (Satin Clear) with RP23
Fox TALAS 120/95 forks
Easton Haven UST Magnesium wheels
2.4" Maxxis Ardent UST front
2.1" Maxxis Ignitor EXO rear
XT M785 26/38 crankset 175mm
XTR SPD pedals
XTR M988 brakes with Goodridge hoses
XT M780 i-spec shifters
XT M781 shadow med cage RD
XT M786 FD
XT M771 11-36 cassette
HG94 HGX 10sp chain
Easton Haven carbon bars 711mm
Easton Haven 85mm stem
ODI Rogue grips
Thomson elite setback post
Selle Italia SLR Flow saddle
Right on 28lb / 12.7kg with pedals. Easy to lighten it up a bit, but I value comfort and strength of components over light weight (plus I can't afford more XX / XTR lol).
Don't think you would lighten it up too much even w/ XTR or XX. Maybe a pound, but it wouldn't make sense financially. That's a killer build and great looking bike.
