    [QUOTE=BlownCivic]Figured it was time for an update. I made a bunch of changes in the last few months. The latest batch lead to the bike hitting 18.01lbs (8.17kg) on the Ultimate scale at the LBS. I was getting 18 lbs 1 oz on my hanging digital fish scale.

    I had one of these before turning to the 29er, awesome machines. Please get us better pictures of it. Take out the ESI and get some Extralites or similar. Also choose a lighter front lefty hub and please, please get rid of those bar ends it just ruin the look!

    Last year my second race machine was one of these. Very good looking one. Why go to Ti? This one is very unique and the weight savings would bee none or very small? The ride?

    if i remember correctly it was 12g but my scale is only accurate to the gram. i had to change the bolt out for a spare though so i'm not sure what it weighs now.
    the powder coating on my last post wore down making its diameter to small for the clamp to grip so the bolt stripped...
    and its a 34.9 clamp.
    RAH!

    Always wanted a good ti hardtail. Love the subtle 'boing' of a good ti frame. I won't get rid of the ARC, just build up another bike for the harder ground in the summer. This frame, although superb handling, is very stiff... even with the looped stays.

    Think I'm going to do a dream bike build. Custom Lynskey with Lefty Speed SL for starters...

    This was my race bike for last season. It survived the toughest Belgian marathons, the Swiss Bike masters in Switserland and the Transschwarzwald.
    For next season I will be upgrading to a 2x9 setup, road front derailleur, the new Sid WorldCup forks, a new frame and hopefully a new wheelset (thinking about xtr hubs, olympic rims)

    Nice bike and the upgrades planned sound good.

    If money is not an issue then consider a Cannondale SI SL crankset, they are as close to perfection as you can get. If they're a bit out of your price range then consider going the Middleburn RS8/ KCNC BB route. Nino's Lightning cranks seem to be fairly popular as well, I don't really like them but thats down to personal taste.

    Wheelwise - XTR hubs are good if you're after a no nonsense setup, how ever they're not very light. Again if funds aren't a problem then just buy a new No Tubes Podium MMX wheelset and have doen with it. If you're on a budget then go for ZTR Alpine rims, (replacement for the Olympic), A2Z/ AM Classic hubs and DT Rev/ Wheelsmith XL 14 spokes with Alu nipples.

    Just my thoughts, use em, don't use em.

    Alright, I would like to add my bike into the fray. I am not exactly a weight weenie, but after building this bike I could not resist how awesome a light bike rides. I have been missing out, this franken bike has come to be my number one ride.

    <a href="http://s200.photobucket.com/albums/aa124/CercaMemorial/?action=view&current=DSC00903.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa124/CercaMemorial/DSC00903.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    The current weight on this bike is 19.3 lbs. Those levers weigh 70g and I picked those up through craigslist for $35 brand new. It's driving me crazy, because I know I can easily save more weight through the wheels and the fork. Plans are to remove the bashguard, and get a half link so I can remove the tensioner, and maybe throw on my avid SL V's to knock off about another 270g. I even removed the bottle cages to knock off 95g.

    Mud removal done!
    About the wheels lateral stiffness, just can say it never felt any flexy, I'm light tho. This wheels must be stiff anyway, AC hubs have large centered flanges and Olympic rims are also quite stiff.

    R7 is fine and the Absolute sistem works great, but my R7, unlike all other R7, is somehow too much stiff, sensivity is currently poor. A problem of my unit, will try to fix it next service.

    that's nice I might build similar wheels with American Classic hubs CX-ray and ZTR alpine.

    Is that internal cable routing a factory configuration or a modification? Are all of those holes all the diameter of cable housing or on the shift cables are they sized for the inner cable liner?

    Latest Pics of 2007 Giant Anthem

    Just got a new drive train, full XTR. The only other thing I plan on doing is getting a new wheelset n tyres because these are absolute pigs, but that will come probably after this season. Not the lightest setup by far, about 25lbs with pedals, large frame, but it's reliable.
    Thoughts?

    anything above these weights aren't really weight weenie bikes... just normal run of the mill builds. nothing to be ashamed of, just not weight weenie.

    Amazing Bike...
    The sanding down is impressive.. along with the cable routing..
    There looks to be tape or something under neath the stem to protect the bar.. what do you have there?

    Where will you plan to drop more weight????
    Carbon Clamps for R1 (I know its very minimal.. but you have carbon all over...

    Yours is a quality build.. great job...

    I don't see it. In every rotor hole that can be seen in his photos, there's a bolt.
