Hi guys i have a 2010 Ellsworth Truth and am looking for some ideas on getting it a little lighter for next years race season.
I race it alot and ride it hard, so durability cannont be compromised, im also tall and weigh 190 so that is another factor.
The only thing that i cannont afford to change right now is the wheels, but even if i could i don't think i would the wheels i have are 6 years old and have only needed one truing and still are perfectly straight.
Here is how it is currently built
Frame: 2010 Ellsworth Truth
Fork: 2006 Reba
Rear Shock: Fox tuned by Ellsworth
Wheels: DT swiss 4.2 XR w/240s and 28 DT comps per wheel
Tires: Racing Ralph 2.0 (f), Fast Track 2.0 (r)
Crank: XTR 44/32
Shifters: XT rear, XT front
RD: XT shadow
Cassette: XT 11-32
Chain: SRAM 971
Brakes: Juicy 5
Brake Rotors: HSX
Stem: Pro XCR
Bars: Ritchey WCS carbon low rise
Grips: ESI Racer
Seatpost: Thomson Elite
Saddle: Fizik Tundra Kium
Seatpost Clamp: Ellsworth
Headset: Cane Creek Zero
Pedals: CB Egg Beaters 2
Its current weight is 25.43, i have had it as low as 24.6 with different tires.
I would like to get it to around the 24.5 mark, which i think is doable without alot of money, it would be awesome to get the 23.5 but that would require some new wheels and that is not in the budget.
