    Here's my lightweight build. Giant NRS Carbon. In the future I will def. replace the frame with a Scott Spark, or even a Santa Cruz Blur XC Carbon. I will probably replace the crankset with Extralite EBones (I would replace it with a Clavicula if there wasn't a $800 difference between the EBones and Clavicula). I don't know if I will pull the trigger and get the lightest handlebar, seatpost, stem, and wheelset.

    Light and effective as you would expect, but not as stiff as a wider diameter fork. I don't mind I am pretty light myself.

    A shade over 20lbs at the moment. Getting new stem to replace the Giant OEM stem I have on there for fitting purposes, as well as a new seatpost. Will probably throw on some S-Works Fast Trak (F) and Renegade (R) 2.0s on there, too.

    This is my current ride, not yet consider a ww bike but in the process... Its a almost 10 year old Fondriest Top Level U-107, pretty rare in my region, made from Dedacciai U107 aluminum, pretty and light, had it resprayed as the old coating was coming off due to riding.

    will try update periodically when parts are upgraded, so see you guys soon!

    I want to put a fork on mine but don't want it to get too heavy. What's your build list?

    Built up a Trek Superfly SL in XL size the other day. 1x10 system with an X-glide 34t ring, X.0 clutch der, X.0 cranks, Avid brakes, Bontrager RXL 400 seatpost, Bontrager RXL low rise bar cut to 660mm, Bontrager XXX 100mm stem, Bontrager Carbon Affinity saddle, Sram grip shift with ESI grips, Stans Olympic Gold wheelset wrapped in Bontrager tires, Crank Brothers Eggbeater 11 pedals and a Rock Shox World Cup fork 15mm TA. Total weight, 18.1 lbs or 8.2 kg.
    Pretty awesome ride. Love how responsive it is and how comfortable it is on the rough stuff. Internal cable routing is very clean looking. Now some pics

    My Exotic Carbon. Fairly lightweight, comes in just over 18lbs. Not weighed it as a completed bike but the sum of all parts comes to 18.02lbs. All of which i weighed myself and have pics of all but a couple of parts.





    Most recent upgrade was the forks - changed from some heavy Reba's to the rigid carbons. Much prefer the ride with these on and came in at a respectable 785g:





    Next up are some lighter pedals as these are heavy old lumps and possibly a lighter front tyre like a Rocket Ron.

    Very nice. I always like to check out what you are creating. I think you need to move to Pennsylvania to be closer to Cannondale, though.

    IMO, and I know people won't agree, I'd say sub 21 lbs for a 29er HT, sub 19lbs for a 26er HT, sub 24 lbs for a FS 29er, and sub 22 lbs for a FS 26er qualifies if we're talking XC bike.

    This thread could definitely use some 24-26 lb Mojo's or 32 lb DH bikes though.

    Here is my newest addition, rigid hardtail with a handmade carbon frame, rigid carbon fork, XT groupset...

    Specs:
    Ir.comp 3.1 handmade carbon frame: 1350
    Exotic carbon rigid fork cc-f0245: 850
    Headset Ahead rs-11 + top cap + carbon spacer 10mm: 169
    Stem Force 100mm 25.4: 154
    Handlebar BBB BHB-14 560mm, 25.4: 110
    Grips Force foam 125mm + plugs: 43
    Brake levers Shimano XT BL-M770: 165
    V-brakes Shimano XT BR-770: 350
    Crankset Shimano XT FC-MM770 22-32-44 175mm with BB: 890
    Pedals Crank brothers eggbeater sl 2005: 266
    Shifters Shimano SL-M770 w/out gear indicators: 231
    Rear derailleur Shimano XT RD-M770: 239
    Front derailleur Shimano XT FD-M770: 165
    Chain Shimano XTR CN-7701: 304
    Cassette Shimano XT CS-M770 11-32: 260

    Saddle San marco SKN racing: 194
    Cables, air: 200
    Bottle cage Elite custom race: 40

    Total weight is 9.6kgs=21.1lbs, which I think is pretty light for a bike with a triple chainset and not so light wheels&tyres (punctureless ). I purchased all of the components separately (mostly used on a very low budget), and have been building this bike for a while.

    Let me know what you think.

    Changed my Trek Superfly SL up a bit. Through on some of the new XX1 with a 36t ring and 10-42 cassette. Works awesome and love the gear range. Running this set up up at Iceman this coming weekend. Should be fun Oh, and still at 18.1 lbs for an XL size

    Is it a new BCD size or can previous model cranks be used and be fitted with XX1 chainrings?

    This thread could definitely use some 24-26 lb Mojo's or 32 lb DH bikes though.
    Posting these kinds of weights are why this forum is dead, IMHO.

    well, actually I didn't make it but someone else did. unfortunately, he was only making them for about 5 years & stopped about 3 years ago. he's a specialist in designing special parts for sailboats here in Slovenia, so this was only his ''part time job''

    a well known female rider Blaza Klemencic won an european title in marathon xc on this frame. it is made of monocoque technology (one piece) and was the only real competition to scale ltd frames a few years back.

    as I've said mostly all components are really low budget, so is this frame, which is used (in the garage by a friend ) and was sold at 1400eur new.

    This is a steel frame bike? Not trying to be a di@k but I believe the AZ7 is an (extremely light) alloy frame.

    My apologies, you are correct. I was told Xtrolite G7 was a steel alloy but it is an aluminium alloy. I have just put on a set of Magura Durin Superlite forks so it now is up to 8500 gms.
    I will try and correct my original statement if i can.

    It's not impressive showing a sub 8kg hardtail, rigid fork, singlspeed bike. If its a full suspension sub 8kg bike, yeah that's impressive.

    A better pic:


    Swapped out the Captain for a Rocket Ron but also had to change from the SLR to something more comfortable. Managed to get a Spesh Phenom on loan from my LBS to see how i get on with the shape. Is there much difference between the Phenom and the Toupe in terms of comfort? They look to be a similar shape.

    It's about 17.9lbs at the moment.

    Regarding the saddles, I ride both, and honestly I think they feel the same. The only difference is the Toupe is the road version, and the Phenom is the MTB version. IMHO.
