    My Cannondale F29

    So after almost 2 years I thought that now it's the proper time to present my MTB
    At base it was a F29 Carbon 1 model 2013. The initial weight out of box was 9.17kg without pedals or 9.62kg with pedals



    After many and many changes it became this ! 8.24kg fully equipped and ready for race



    Yes, same bike, or somehow... because from the original bike the only things that remained are the Reynolds rims and the Lefty fork...! Original frame was gone only after 1 month after purchasing, found a crack in the top tube so I end up with a new frame...and a new color. Was very disappointed by Cannondale's warranty policy but maybe this was the fate


    Setup:
    Wheels: Reynolds rims (not so light, around 435 grams per rim but very stiff) + Tune Kong/Cannonball + Sapim CX-Ray = 1405 grams
    Pedals: Crankbrothers Eggbeater 11 - 181 grams
    Transmission: classic SRAM XX1 with spiderless Absolute Black 32T ring, Rear derailleur model 2015 Type 2.1 + Race Face cranck boots
    Saddle: AX Lightness Endurance Plus - 92 grams
    Seatpost: Syntace P6 Hi-Flex 27.2 x 400mm - 226 grams. This is the only (I think) component I want to change
    Handlebar: Tune Turnstange 750mm, cut to 710mm - 112 grams
    Brakes: Shimano XTR M9000 + 2x160mm XT Rotors (I want to put a 180mm on front, 160mm is to less for my 84kg)
    Tires: Thunder Burt Race Guard rear + Rocket Ron front tubeless
    Grips: LIZARD SKINS DSP 30.3 mm - 22 grams
    Rear QR: Tune AC17 - 26 grams


    That's pretty all, if I missed something let me know

    Very, very nice! I'm interested to know how the M9000 brakes are doing - not sure if you have much time with them yet.

    Love the lefty - jealous.

    Thanks :-)! You are right, they are new, I have to run them a while, but a friend of mine have the same setup and he is very happy with them, even more after his worst experience with a Formula R1 Racing pair.

    It's the XX1 cassette (XG-1199). When I bought it there was a promotion and it was cheaper than the X01 cassette.

    The bike is awesome, I'd be upset about the color swap but it is what it is right?

    I could only imagine what it's like riding it... Just switched from a Air 9 hard tail to a Rip 9 full suspension and can't believe how big a difference just a few pounds makes!

    Someday I hope to build a Lefty equipped ultra light hard tail as a second bike for when the trails are not as rough!
