    You said that before you saw my build!

    Itís an Ibis Tranny (large), with everything stripped off. Monkeylite DH bars, Middleburn cranks running a single 32x19 speed, chinese carbon forks and seat post, Wellgo MG-1s with Ti BB and pedal spindles, Formula ďThe OneĒ brakes with 180mm rotors, and usually I9 ďall mountainĒ wheels (although yesterday I was running a friendís Hope/Stanís front wheel for some reason).

    Tips the scales at 8.27kg (18lb, 4oz). Thereís room to go lower, especially with XC wheels and lightweight tires (The I9s have a claimed weight of 1750g per pair), with XC bars cut down to a reasonable width, or with clipless pedals. But as the picture shows, I canít resist playing on our local trails, and my technique is not feather-light just yet.

    I wouldn't call that freeriding. He's just rolling, not even getting any air. A carbon fork can handle that, no problem

    It would be a better bike with a suspension fork.

    The thing about stunts isnít what happens when you roll over them, but what happens when you bail off them. Iím comfortable the forks can handle riding over all sorts of things and even bailing off them under control.

    Iím not sure what will happen the day I completely fuxxor a log like this and ride right off the side and endo .

    It would certainly be a different bike. I rode it last season with a suspension fork and liked it. Iím fairly certain that suspension technology is a win overall just as clipless pedals are a win overall.

    But there is something about minimalism that is fun, and while I havenít contracted a full-blown case of WW-ism, a lighter bike that is easier to handle and hop is part of the minimalist vibe of using your body to navigate things that the suspension would otherwise do for you.

    JM2C, so far I like both experiences in different ways!

    This one is under 17lbs. now, but I haven't weighed it recently. Carbonal Carbon 1080 gram frameset. I could pull another 200-250grams off it, but I like the way it's setup now. Very comfy and dependable, yet still very light.
    Please, wich rims are these?
