    Not Exactly a Weight Weenie bike.....

    But I did shed some serious pounds.
    Started with a 2009 Novara Bliss for my wife. Picked it up at a Pawn Shop for $200. Looked really clean. I pretty much parted the entire thing out...minus the head set and cranks.
    Full X9 Group, Stans ZTR Crest Wheel set with X9 hubs, Avid Elixer 7 brake set, FSA Carbon bars, stem and seat post, Rock Shox SID Race RLT, and I just put a set of Maxxis Larsen Mimo tires on it...I don't have a scale, but I know its a helluva lot lighter than it was.

    Thanks....looking for a carbon 3 speed FSA crankset in good condition...should top off the build, but they are as hard a feck to find.
