I've always been into weight-weenie style bikes. Mostly having to do with gram shaving on my BMX or downhill bike.
This build had no intention of being built "light" but I'm taking it in that direction now.
I did the current assembly with parts I had laying around or things I could order on the cheap.
As time goes I will continue to update this thread with my weight-loss progress.
