    I saw a 20# Nitrous

    Today, I went to buy a wheelset from a racer who advertised it on Craigslist. When I got there, we talked bikes for a while and he showed me his pride and joy: his Nitrous. Unfortunately, I did not have my camera, so you'll have to take my words for it and his too since I did not weigh the bike either.

    Anyway, here is the build as I remember it:
    - Stan ZTR rims on AMC hubs
    - top of the line SID fork
    - BB7 brakes with 1 finger brakes (don't remember the brand)
    - some magnesium stem
    - RaceFace square tapered crankset. He also drilled holes in the chainrings to lose weight.
    - Conti tires
    - Bebop pedals
    - the rest is a bunch of high end parts (Fisik saddle, X.0 twisters, carbon fiber everything).

    He's working on getting the weight down to 19# though! I really wished I had my camera. So apparently, it's possible to have a sub 10kgs dualie.
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    BB7 as in avid mechanical BB7. He could switch to some Magura hydros or XTR hydros and drop some weight real quick.

    Probably, although his levers were super duper tiny.
