    My Spark Elite...and finally finished!

    It finally came in on Thursday



    Rained most of Friday and wrapped it up last night, nothing left of the factory build but the frame fork and rear shock





    Pretty much done, waiting on my King headset, weighed it in today with heavy 520 pedals and it came in under 25lbs, not bad for a solid trail bike and not trying to be overly weight conscious.

    I like! under 25 lbs with Archs you are most likely running it tubeless. Is it 9spd. When I get one that is what I'm going to do set it up Sram 2x9 xo with carbon bars/seat post cranks Stans Race Gold or Crest wheelset. A 24 lb FS will be lighter than any FS race bikes I have ever had, all my old FS 26 and 29ers where 25lbs to 35lbs if I go with the Elite I will be saving enough money to race ;}

    Awesome, I am thinking my race rig should look very similar to that, as long as I can convince myself out of another steel hardtail. The 25 pound mark sans uber weight weenie stuff may push me your way. Enjoy. I know my lower back wants a squishy I think the high setting on the Sparks feels much better than the low. Good job with the longer, lower stem!
