    My first bike was a FS gary fisher joshua f3 that my neighbor gave me last year. I put a nice fork on it and upgraded the rear shock. I bought a santa cruz tallboy LTC but I wanted a backup bike, but didnt like how it rode so I decided to get a chinese carbon frame (flyxii fr 201) and convert as much of the bike over as possible. I thought I could do it for cheap . The parts are mostly low end but because the frame is so light (like 2.3 lbs) I ended up at 21.3 lbs.

    26er hardtail

    SLX crankset (bought used on craigslist - GF had a tapered BB) - $60 (paid too much!)
    slx shifters - from GF
    BB7 brakes - from GF (I upgraded the GF to disc brakes in front had to buy rear) - $60
    dt 240s with extralite rims (28 spoke) (used on craigslist, GF didnt have disc brakes on rear) - $250
    panaracer fire xc pro front and wtb exiwolf rear (came with the wheels)
    xt front derailleur (had to buy as frame needed bottom swing) - $28
    XT rear derailleur (from GF)
    Chain Shimano CN-HG72, 1/2 x 3/32` (from GF)
    headset cane creek ZS44 (had to buy) $25
    Handlebar Stem Bontrager Comp (from GF)
    pedals straitline amp (from GF)
    fork fox float rlc (previously upgraded GF)
    Saddle WTB SSTX, chromoly rails (from GF)
    Seatpost SP-312, 31.6mm diameter (from GF)
    Brake Levers Avid SD-1.9 L (from GF)
    cables - $30
    bashguard - $25
    grips - lizard skin (from GF)

    cost to upgrade $475 ish + $380 for the frame. This was a lot more than I intended to spend but the weight surprised me as the GF weighed 29lbs. The parts on there now are generally very heavy (like seat and seatpost ) so I have a lot of room to cut weight as I find good deals.

    Never considered that, but considering how many thousands of miles I've put on the seat, I don't think I'll lose sleep.

    That is a damn nice looking bike. Good work! I know I could get mine lighter but I'm happy with it at the moment. Wheels are next but only when my Olympics need to be replaced.

    Only the 2.25's, the 2.1's struggle and are better suited to hardwood flooring.
