    Love the Orbea. I have one just like it but with a SID fork. Just got mine down under 20lbs if you don't include my saddlebag.

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

    Yeah, I think your wheels and saddle are going to be lighter than mine. I'm running Arch's. My cassette is kinda heavy too. Its a PG1050 11-32

    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.

    So how light is a "light-weight bike?" (ie, to be accepted in this thread without getting flamed for the next 8 pages)

    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
    Wheelsets Mavic xm117 with Deore hubs: 1827
    Tubes Ritchey lightweight: 308
    Tyres Ritchey SpeedMax beta comp 26x2.0: 1100

    Seat post Bontrager Race XXX Lite, 330mm, 27.2: 190
    Seat clamp Force 31.8: 19
    Saddle San marco SKN racing: 194
    Cables, air: 200
    Bottle cage Elite custom race: 40
    V-brake booster: 69

    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
