Calling a certain Dane I met in Riva del Garda
I wondered how the rest of the vacation was and if I can cet some pics of your bikes to look at them in detail (again)
That was fun to see your post in here
As requested, here are some pics of my Carbon Rush. There are some minor diff compared to the TransAlp set-up. The KMC chain on the pictures was changed to an XT and the back gear cable was also changed from I-link to XT.
All the specs are:
Brakes Rear: Avid Juicy Ultimates with Aligator rotors 160mm

In this set-up the bike is around 10,5 kg.
I also have a lighter set-up where I ride a Speedneedle (-200g), no bar-ends (-90g) and lighter tires (app -300g). Of cause I would also put the KMC 9SL chain back on (-50g).
I will write to a PM with the rest of the holiday story
I am still interested in upgrade suggestions that will not compromise strength.
Have anybody tried the Hope Mono Mini Pro?
And, can the weight (295g) be confirmed ?
