    changed the wheels, because the stans DX body was delayed for mid january 2013! the SRAM carbon are hot and with 1440g quit light and stiff, saddle is ok - looks nice for the moment :thumbsup:

    Here's my new beastie. Specs are:

    Large Alloy frame (Satin Clear) with RP23
    Fox TALAS 120/95 forks
    Hope headset
    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

    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.

    My black Tallboy AL frame just shipped yesterday!
