    Nice bike - let's see a scale shot.

    You get extra points for lining up your tires nicely.

    Is that a Dura Ace 9speed RD with a 32t Cassette? If so, how does it work? Also, what kind of chain keeper are you using? I'm building a WW 1 x 9 now and need some ideas.
    Thx!

    Yes it is a dura ace 7800 with xg 999 11-32. I just changed the 11t pulleys to 10t. The chainkeeper are from helium components

    Extralite F1

    Some views of my F1 with the Look Fournales and, later, the Noleen I used to bring it down to just under 20. The frame was purchased by Specialized to, and I'm speculating here, check for patent infringement by the linkage. Had a good time slowly building it up bit by bit off eBay and here on MTBR. Thanks to the many who've posted here with tips on wise use of our gram allotment in pursuit of lightweight builds.

    Thanks. I have a 7800 DA RD and will consider it in place of the Shadow XTR medium cage now. I like the idea of the shorter cage.

    ..

    Nice bike, and nice photos as well. Seems like the Lefty is key to shedding weight.

    I know very little about it.

    Does anyone have info handy on total weight for a Lefty setup, and any gotchas in the frame, i.e. weird stuff like bearing contact angles if on a non-Cannondale frame?

    I recently worked on this bike (20.9lbs - 9.480g) replacing a DT swiss XRC 100 fork to a lefty Carbon XLR 90mm for 29er.
    In this case it was added to the bike 216g since the DT swiss was already pretty light at 1320g (with housing and cable, no remote), my Lefty setup is 1375.5g for the fork only (with remote)+project 321 lefty adapter (161g) - total: 1536.5g.
    My DT swiss was pretty old and not responsive anymore, had to sacrify 216g but I am very happy with the result, super smooth and versatile since I can play with this bike switching from 26er and 29er front wheels. 69er is the current setup... its fun!

    You can go lighter perhaps with a lefty PBR or DLR, I thing the lightest lefty is the Speed Carbon at 1159g...but I'm not a lefty expert, thats just from my research before choosing this current Lefty for my bike.

    Exotic Carbon - built by my own fair hands - 16.65lbs by my reckoning:















    Really want a new crankset but funds won't allow at the moment. Decided on a Raceface Next SL and will keep my Uberbikes 36t middle ring.
    Next up is a lighter set of Egg Beaters and these will be relegated back to my winter singlespeed. Been desperately trying to find some 4ti's but no luck as of yet. May just plump for some more 1's and replace the spindles with ti.
    Also going to go back to foam grips - i hate these ESI's with a passion - they hurt my hands and offer little to no grip in the wet. And they're an absolute c**t to get on and off (but certainly don't "throttle", which is their only redeeming feature for me).

    Nice bike, and nice component choices!

    I'm always curious to see if the spreadsheet weight matches an actual scale-based total of the bike - there always seems to be some extra grammage in there somehow.

    Re the grips, I hear you on the ESIs. When they get chewed up enough, I simply cut them off. In terms of comfort (and to match your bar), you could try these ergo ones from Ritchey for about the same weight as the ESIs:

    Re: Post your light-weight bikes!

    Thanks. I've always wondered that too. How much does grease weigh???

    I've had the ritchey wcs foam grips and had bonty x's before these. Liked both of those. Switched to the rigid fork and heard the esi's had good vibration damping so thought I'd give them a go.

    117g for the chain is amazingly low. My kmc x10sl cut short for 1x9 use weighs 220g.

    Yup! There's not much chance that that chain actually weighs 117g.

    Y'know Axis you can us a Dura-Ace short cage with a 11-34 cassette, you just screw in the B-screw the whole way, or use a longer B-screw. Also, don't drop as many chains with a shorter cage due to higher spring tension. You'll get it below 16lbs because you can shorten the chain as well as the dropped weight from the derailleur.

    I thought the same on the weight of the DA RD but was surprised to discover this. And this is with some tuning of the jockey pully wheels (10t) and clamp screw. It shifts fantastically now with the Shadow and no dropped chains with the Helium chain keeper but the saved weight on the chain is tempting.
