    did you ride this bike more than a half hour?

    i'm looking your saddle and asking myself is it possible to use it at such angle?
    i mean, i will slide toward front with my ass so hard that i can't sustain pressure on my hands after just half an hour, even if i consider your very high position of handlebar.

    i'm not fan of dt forks and cb pedals.

    other than those two issues your bike is perfect racing machine.

    I'm not a very agressive rider, just into this stuff, so I hope that even if it's bad, it'll still serve my purposes.
    Thanks for the heads up though. I didn't know that it's an issue.

    betcha next time you see djphill's bike it'll have the new magura MT8 brakes - they are red/black & featherweight & would really set this bike off

    thanxs for the compliments guys
    i have upgraded a few this since i posted those photos
    it now has
    Cannondale XX spider with Carbon TI XX 39/26 TI Chainrings
    Mini iLinks
    Eliflap carbon disc apdator for the rear brake

    Im in the middle of sanding it back to just raw carbon but its taking a lot longer then i thought it was going to take

    I had planned on upgrading the brake to R1s, but we will see how much $$$ the maguras are,
    i have also droped the red black theme and just going for a stealth all black (frame matt black)

    really nice build - but where's your one-off Mattais seatpost + saddle combo & SSL chainrings? ... seems like you left your most unique components out here

    The seat/post was became two separate parts when i took the spill that cracked my rib. the bike swung down and hit me which broke it and my body...
    The alloy rings i had both broke. The small ring broke from bolt failure. (extralite granny gears need a 10mm hole not the standard 8mm so the current granny gear has a 10mm hole and should last a lifetime.
    The alloy big ring folded.. It hit a rock and was bent so when i hammered down out of a turn it folded over..
    so i have tried to keep things more practical and light.
    RAH!

    I LOVE your Niner! I can't ride a rigid cause of my elbows but I would throw a Carbon Lefty on there and sleep with that bike.

    thanks, perhaps sometime next year

    that a9c would be a totally different beastie now if treefort hadn't sent 26" edge xc rims instead of the 29" xc that i'd ordered & then a few days later i heard about the new tubeless friendly version on the way from enve ... so i got the green light to go daft making the a9c as different as possible to my full squish 26" trail bike

    ...its alot of fun to ride, but have to make sure my teeth don't clatter together on bumps

    Buy real MTB parts, people. Light is nice, but safety should always come first.
    That Clavicula crank is one of the ugliest cranks I have ever seen and what makes it worse besides being overpriced is that its apparently junk.

    Didn't you know? When you are OCD about weight, nothing else matters, but weight. What's a crackup, is people will spend a few thousand to save 5 pounds and 95% of them could save money by eating less and lose 5 pounds or more of fat.

    Not at all. Ridden for two solid seasons(1850 trail miles) and not a single peep...

    Funny you mention that. I got the shaft from Treefort as well when I ordered my Racing Ralphs.

    Nah, he's too busy worrying about the matching aluminum stem bolts and the aluminum clamp bolts of his seatpost. I'd switch to light beer before putting aluminum bolts on my seatpost or stem. At least light beer won't impale my butt with carbon or my chin or face with a stem.

    Aluminum bolts are in three places:

    1) Stem
    2) Anywhere on seatpost
    3) Disc brake rotors

    C'mon Zach, you must have forgotten the exception to that rule: Aluminum bolts in those places are perfectly alright if they are all matching anodized BLOOD RED in color. What's next, hollow aluminum pedal spindles?!

    Beautiful GIANT. Congratulations on your configuration.
    I also have a frame that. It is very good. Soon I'll post the pictures.

    It's at 16.95 lbs, or 7.7kg right now without too much effort. Wheels, pedals, and cranks are not superlight, but are strong and dependable. Still run tubes in the tires too.

    phenominal bike! amazing that you’ve managed to get an S-Works Epic well under 20lb - congrats

    here’s some tweaks you could do to your build

    5.7g 2x AFCbike Clark 10 delrin pulleys vs. 23.7g 2x SRAM XX derailleur pulleys
    5.5g 36.9mm Smud seatpost clamp vs. 20g S-Works mtb seapost collar
    5g smud ultralite carbon bottle cage vs. 27g S-Works Carbon Rib Cage
    4g strip of fluffy velcro vs. 42g S-Works plastic chainstay protector
    0.7g 2x Purely Custom cnc alloy valve collars vs. 2.1g stainless steel collars
    1g 3x Roth Shek M5x17mm plastic bolts vs. 4g 3x steel M5x20mm S-Works downtube cable guide bolts (plastic bolts can also be used for the bottle cage)

    weight saved approx 96g

    also possibly
    2011 KMC x10 SL chain (when a new chain is needed)
    tubeless? or don’t use those miss matched green dust caps & save 1g

    Looking good! Are those 2,25" Rons? If they are, what is the width of them on the Olympics from the widest part? How much clearance is left?

    yes, 2.25" rons. race kings 2.2" didn't fit, so i put RoRo's. there isn't much room, but it's better than with RK2.2. width is not the problem, height is. now i've got about 5mm room between the tires and the frame. i can make a picture if you want.

    Oh, yes, the little things add up. I've been trying to decide on which derailleur pulleys to get and I appreciate your suggestions. I've been trying to get a smud clamp but he hasn't returned my last email with pricing and where to send the money.

    I've broken 2 of the sworks cages but they've been good about warranting them. I like how well they hold the bottles. I'll check out the smud (maybe get a combined shipment).

    Good idea on the chainstay protector and bolts/collars and I am tubeless. I'll ditch the caps

    Here is a build I just completed:
    6 inches of travel at a weight of 23.9 lbs (incl. magnesium/Ti platform pedals by HTI)
    This build started only because I was lucky enought to get a NEW enduro pro carbon
    SL frame for $711 incl shipping on ebay-- I don't do any downhill here and after 2 rides I'm happy to say it rides much better than my 2008 Pitch Pro ( similar frame design and suspension geometry )

    Nice, a sub 24 lbs all mountain bike. Did you change to the DT shock just to save weight? I wonder how it compares to the stock Specialized shock.

    I added all the componets on to the new frame so I knew the DT XR 200 was the lightest
    for the 7.875 x 2.25 required shock dimensions (161 g vs about 235 for a fox rp2 or rp23)
    I only have a couple short rides on it but it feels very similar to a fox rp23.
    The lock-out switch on this shock comes VERY close to true "lockout"
    although I would only use lock-out on any pavement or super flat terrain
    since this bike pedals quite efficiently with all suspension on full travel.

    I'm finally down to my goal weight of 20lbs, I know that's not super light, especially for a rigid singlespeed, but it is vintage steel and it makes me happy!

    I have a 32T up front and an 11-32 XX casette in the rear. I love running a 1x10. I wouldn't have it any other way.

    There are some studies that the efficiency is better. In front, for better buoyancy control and (being a lighter part) and rear (heavier), thinner to improve the layout and more control in wet land.

    Happy cycling!

    It does have a few spots of surface rust, the frame has been blasted and epoxy painted and is solid. The rear tub is as new, the only issue of rust is the right front fender had a small hit and caused a cosmetic bend which has a bit of rust about the size of 1 dollar bill.

    The truck is solid asa rock and is not a basket case. The motor is a rebuilt Jasper unit 350 chevy. I just had the carb rebuilt, the only think I would do before using daily is redo the brakes.

    New disc kit for the front is about 500 or so, I would also change the master cylinder. Other than that it is awesome.

    The interior is excellent with new seats an the jump seats are there, the fuel tank is new with new pump, it is in the stock location under the passenger seat. The removable top needs a new liner.

    It would cost about 20 k to get one to this level, I never thought of selling it but it was mentioned here so I figured why not, I never have time to touch it now that I'm traveling back and forth overseas.

    I have seen them on eBay bringing from 13-20 k in worst condition than this. I can make a YouTube video this weekend

    Regards,

    Hanzo

    strength first consideration, lightweight-ness second consideration

    Currently putting together a rigid bike. More exactly, I'm redoing a rigid bike.

    The rigid bike is always in a process of being upgraded.

    For instance, all new 2011 Shimano XTR 2 x 10 Race gear is taking the place of 2010 XTR
    3 x 9.

    I am in the process of replacing everything with lighter components, taking into consideration my weight.

    So while some items are indeed the lightest in the world (Hi-Temp 42 foam grips @ 10 g/pr.; Eclipse Swiss Inner Tubes @ 51.15 g/ea. (without stem caps); Schmolke Carbon ahead cap @ 4.53 g... you get the picture), other items are as safely light as they can be for my weight.

    For instance, I couldn't safely use the lightest seat collars in the world (currently the CARBONICE Sattelklemme Carbon @ 2.9 g or the BTP Sattelklemme Sub3, also @ 2.9 g), so I chose the lightest one for me which is the Mcfk Schlaufenklemme - 31.8, @ 7.63 g.

    There's also a consideration for aesthetics. I could change my magnificent Moots Open Trail Ti Stem, a sure Black Sheep Bikes Ti low-rise handlebar, and a Moots Layback Ti Seatpost, but I won't because the frame is a 1997 Litespeed Owl Hollow Ti frame. All that Ti looks great together – especially since I had all these components media bead-blasted, so they match.

    I could buy a lighter stem, bar, and seatpost (I would choose carbon), probably from ax-lightness (they produce some of the highest quality carbon components in the world – manufacturing pieces by hand and within cleanrooms, utilizing the most state-of-the-art materials and machinery to produce expensive works of art, some of the materials as classified, technology gleened from formula 1 racing, aerospace industry, etc. The best.

    But I won't. Because it wouldn't look as nice as the Ti components.

    On and on....

    I've logged probably hundreds of hours scouring the net for ultra-exclusive, far out, and sometimes unheard of, by my LBS, components.

    Of the new 2011 XTR setup, I've already replaced the V-Brake levers with KCNC VB-1 levers that weigh under 47 g the pair! That's lighter than most V-brake pads out there.

    I've even tuned this VB-1 lever by replacing the aluminum and nut reach adjustment screws with nylon counterparts, bring the weight under 45 g! **** like that....

    To be continued....
