    Carver Carbon 29er- 16.1 lbs

    Carver Carbon 29er- 16.1 lbs-pic091.jpg

    Almost done, but close enough to post a shot, I think. Sub 16 should be easily possible with a DA RD and the shorter chain. I plan to make that adjustment soon and hopefully the shifting holds up- The Shadow RD/XG 999 cassette/DA Pauls thumbies and Sram Hollowpin are shifting as good as anything I have experienced to date. I have some Mcfk carbon barends on backorder with Starbike, which will round out the stealth carbon visual.

    I do like this build. Think i'd flip the stem though if it were mine.

    How do you find the Renegade/Rocket Ron combo? I'm loving them in the dry weather.

    Its the large size 31.6 I think? I like it enough that its my second purchase. I also have a 27.2 on my SS 29er. The clamp mech is fantastic. It does flex just enough to take the edge off smaller hits for sure. Not the lightest option but its a solid performer like the Duraflite bar up front as well. I'm a supporter of German engineering as you can tell

    I like the combo mostly. The rockets sons are amazing at hookup in hard cornering. So much so that I push the limits beyond what the renegade can handle in the back and I have found myself on the deck after the rear end washes out in hard cornering. The renegade is pretty solid though for the weight in most conditions.

    You're probably joking, but let's remember that BMX racing bikes are full rigid, carbon fibre and made to accelerate instantly. And the elite men will easily do big tables and triple the pump moguls.

    If you drop the seat post, it might be fun to take an extremely light 29er into a pump track/dirt jump environment :-)

    Pretty sure smellurfingers was referring to this:

    '12 S-Works Stumpjumper carbon HT
    '13 Specialized Carve Comp
    '94 S-Works M2
