    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.

    Haven't weighed the final product but have kept an accurate record of all the parts. The sum of which comes in at 7767 gms or 17.1 lbs.

    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.
