    Good idea - I'll ride my wife's rug tonight too. Hopefully she stays awake for it this time.

    Thanks for the post. I've seen some FS 29er bikes in the 9.3kg / 20.5 lb range in this forum, but 8kg / 17.6 pounds is getting pretty low.

    If you want specific weight reduction advice, I'd start a new thread in the Weight Weenies subforum, list your components piece by piece, and maybe include a photo with scale showing. You'll get some decent ideas.

    You can lose a lot of weight in your wheels. Look at some Enve carbons with your pick of light weight hubs would drop about a half pound. That would be most noticable. Going 1x would drop about 3/4 lbs by losing your front shifter and derailleur. Your fork is also pretty heavy. Putting a SID WC or a lefty on there would drop about a half kilo as well. Also, going with a bolt on seat clamp instead of a quick release would drop a few grams easilly. What grips are you using? THat's a pretty easy place to lose weight too.

    Merlin Echo 20lbs 13oz

    Here is a Merlin Soft Tail that I built on a total budget

    Came in under 21 pounds. I could have dropped another 3 pounds if I used the good stuff. But the goal was to use all of the parts sitting in my parts pin & tool box

    You realize with a 11-25 cassette with a triple you're lowest gear is higher than running a 32T crank and a 11-36 cassette? Plus you're stuck shifting your chainrings all the time? Why not go 1X and be done with it? Best upgrade I made to my bike, and it was free.

    My bikes in their current state...

    2005 NRS C1 that's been down right on the 20 lb mark as shown in the picture by itself... but is a bit more now to make it comfortable to ride with real tires, real seat, and bar ends. And my 2006 TCR Advanced for the road. Not quite as nicely set up as the NRS but still happy with it.

    Frame looks sweet. Is that weight with frame, bar, (most of) brakes, etc? If so, compelling.

    My Orbea that's somewhere in this thread died a week before my first race so I used the parts and built this up:

    2011 Scott Scale RC
    Crest wheels
    XX1 crank
    X9 Type II RD
    XO Shifter
    XX brakes
    SID XX fork
    Ikon front, Crossmark rear

    AUW with pedals and bottle cage but without the tools is 19 lbs 2 oz, with a tube, Lezyne V10 tool, tire lever, and CO2 is just over 20.
