    Mariosimas, have you ridden the FFs? How would they compare to the RRs in your experience and what kind of terrain are you riding on?

    The FFs and Crows have performed very well for me in the AZ dry desert terrain and on rock and techy tracks. However, I was considering building up another wheel set with RRs for wet, soft , muddy tracks.

    2010 Scott Scale 29er Carbon Pro, SRAM XX, Carbon Lefty DLR SL

    This was by far one of my best builds, but most challenging. The Scott frame has internal cable routing that is a PITA. To run the cables you have to remove the cranks and the BB cups. Not a fan of that, but I shaved about 70 grams off the Nokon cables by having this option on the frame.


    Total Weight = 16.93 pounds / 7681g
    Built up at this test weight, but tweaking it as I ride to find the best parts for handling and comfort. Will likely end up around 17.5 pounds.

    Why? I'm happy with these forks. Weigh 500 grams. Lovely gloss finish. Just wish they didn't have the silly disc tabs.

    The only part i wish i could change is the stem for a AX Lightness stem. But i need my kidneys.

    Waiting for a LTO bar

    You can still change your wheels. I don't know which hubs you have,but you ride on heavy rims. Build some light weight wheelset help you to lose many grams.
    You can put some part list.

    The logo just takes away from the rest of the bike. It's easy to re clear coat to gloss... No damage to the carbon

    Nice build and it looks good! Is that your actual seat height? Your handlebar ist higher than your seat. How do ride like this!? (considering your built, which is a CC Racer in my eyes)
    ...love is the absence of fear....

    Agree 100% But no money left. Was looking at carbon 'innolite' XCT 230 rims and Tune hubs. I've just got these wheel built so will get some use from them next year. The hubs are American classic 210 (224 grams) vintage Hope 102 grams the Mavic 717 are 405 grams with revolution spokes. 780 grams & 650 grams with Maxxislite tube on the back 95g & Foss 80g on the front. Oh and 6 gram rim tape.

    Perhaps loose 10 oz from changing the wheels

    Thanks

    A bike is a personal thing and if you enjoy your ride then that's all that counts.

    My last light bike was a nightmare to ride. I find that 18/19 lb is an ideal weight for me. Any lighter and i get bounced about like a rubber ball.
    I just love seeing how light i can get a mtb plus i love the Trimble frame. Have i built the lightest Trimble???

    It's a GT Zaskar Carbon, not an Avalange. The frame (1,6kg) is keeping it "heavy".
