    Really nice bike. Are you sure about need of barends? I had a 29er ht testbike for 1 week with a 680 mm bar which was very comfortable and will also use the same setup.

    9.2 kg? is that not a mistake?
    I have a 2012 sworks epic with a tune seatpost, very light saddle, the same pedals and 8g grips and the bike is 10.05kg (size L). is this possible that your bike is full 850g lighter?

    I think so - it's not a stock build by any means.

    He's running a S or M frame (given the "gussetless" top tube), so a bit of savings over your L size.

    Photos show a 1X setup (unless I'm missing something), so some great savings there as well.

    The rest could be saved via the tires and a bit more via the Ti bolts.



    BTW, great bike PanuV. Excellent selection of components.

    Very impressive weight! I've got the same bike on order and can't wait to get it. How are you liking the XX1?

    I have the same tires as he does, tubeless, the frame size is minor weight saving as well as the front derailleur is maybe what, 200 grams? Titanium bolts are meaningless, still far from 850g difference

    Fair points, and agreed the Ti bolts amount to maybe 20g across the whole bike.

    He also loses the small chainring and shifter (and cable) though. Assuming you're running XTR with i-Spec, that's another 95-100g and whatever the small XTR chainring amounts to.

    Maybe still not enough to hit 850g. (?)

    my bike is sram xx not xtr,
    I checked the weights online,
    front derailleur from sram xx is 112g
    shifter is 92g
    cables probably around 20g
    the sram xx double chainring for spec is 178g, one of the biggest chainrings for XX1 is 58g (34 tooth), this is a saving of 120g (major!!!)


    so total weight advantage of xx1 would be around 344g, still far from 850g weight difference.
    I weighted my bike on a park tool hanging scale

    You missed a few things.
    XX double @ 178 includes the spider, but 58g for a 34t does not include the spider.
    XX1 Cassette/freehub is 50g heavier and rear derailleur is 60g heavier.

    @madhead: 9.2 is realistic. My 2011 26" Epic was at 8.9 kg. If you change over to 29" only the wheels incl. tyres are heavier. So 9.2 kg is ok. Please post a detailed list of components then we can tell you the reason for weight differences.

    @PanuV: looks like you can use a straight seatpost. Also it would be lighter than your current one. And please add a partlist including weights, ok?

    I also canīt believe the weight.
    Here is my epic. Weight is 8.98kg. My weight shows the same like my part-list.

    Best regards
