    Awesome, can't wait to see it!

    I just put new wheels on mine yesterday and it crossed under 20lbs for the first time. These bikes are a pure pleasure to ride. Enjoy it.

    I guess I'll share my build so far, should be 18# when I have it done next month, I'll be sure to post it when it's done. I am just waiting for those XX grip shifters to finally come out. Or I think I may switch gears and go with the a m985 shadow plus rear derailleur as I hear they rock and 20 grams for better shifting performance isn't to bad of a compromise. I also need to build up my front wheel. I can't wait to get on this thing!

    Is there a rider weight limit on either this frame or the Scale Carbon Pro?

    I actually think there is. I recently purchased a 2012 scale 29rc and remember reading about it in the manual. From recollection it was around 100kg total including rider and gear. I'll check tonight to confirm. BTW I am around 95kg all geared up and have been riding this bike for about 6 weeks without issue (touch wood).

    In general 110kgs/243lbs are recommended. More details can be found in our general manual. Please note: kids bikes are designed with a combined weight limit of 50kgs/110lbs

    Thanks, 243 seems more than reasonable.

    Well, I stand corrected! Thanks for the heads up. 243lbs is quite a limit. I am 200 all geared up and have been riding mine relentlessly for over a year.

    WillyMCD... I was thinking about a lefty as well, I am still up in the air becuase I wanted to see how light I could get it. I had a pair of EC90's that I was going to pick up but the guy backed out so I am waiting to find another pair. It is all together and weight w/ pedals minus the wheels/cassette is 11.8lbs which is pretty fricken ridiculous. I wanted to wait for the grip shifters as well but am tired of waiting.

    You didn't have DT Swiss XR-RS 29 wheels on you bike from stock by any chance?

    Hi Tauporider

    I had the xr29 wheels on mine but bought a set of American classics. Why? You after a set of them? They are currently sitting in my shed being neglected.

    I said screw it to the grip shift, sram is crazy with the price of the new ones. here is my build all listed out. I'll probably keep it as it is now, and maybe upgrade a few things next year like carbon steer tube, new lighter seatpost, lighter rear skewer, maybe save another 200 grams or so with those changes...

    Just browsing your list and the pedal weight jumped out at me. Add another 100g's to that number.

    Weight should be close, but actual will probably be a little heavier. Nice build though. Hopefully I can get some pictures of mine soon enough.

    Finished it up for the most part... Still waiting on my race wheels, this is with my training wheels on it. Very happy with the weight I just wanted to hit under 19lbs and even with my heavier training wheels it sit's at 18.9 w/ pedals, built with light stuff but nothing questionable in terms of durability. Now both bikes are complete and it's time to enjoy them.

    Very sweet. Are you doing CCCX or are you headed down south this weekend?
    This may be a total waste of time but I can't help but think that you might amount to something someday.
