    you mean Paul Thumbies + Dura ace barcon shifter?

    Paul components makes thumbie mount so you can run 8s or 9s dura ace barcon shifters on mtb.

    photo is with SL-BS77 and weighs 65g per side and there are further possibilities for weight reduction

    There's also a similar 'thumb-shifter' setup available from the UK if anyone's interested:

    I honestly love mine. Once I dialed in the air pressures, its amazing over fast small stuff and even drops. If I know im in a fast single track twisty section, i throw a click and it brings the platform up and tightens the response. I wasnt expecting much, but for the money and the weight, its a win.

    I run rigid now but, when I had a suspension fork up front, I never adjusted it on the trail. Maybe thats why rigid appealed to me so much.

    With my fork, no. Leaking seals out of the box, don't know if the new seals will work either. Seatpost broke so I can't ride it.

    Sub 10-kilo on the cheap

    While it would be hard to impress anybody with the build kit, I think I can brag about how little money I spent on this commuter/riverbank trail bike. I got the frame and fork for free out of the dumpster at my local University, and all the other parts were off ebay, and I'm certain that I paid less than $150 for all of them combined. As long as you are diligent with the scale, and willing to sacrifice some gearing, it seems you can build some pretty light bikes for cheap.

    What did you have to do to route your cables internally like that? Is there cable housing inside the frame, or are you using the frame like cable stops? It took me a while to realize why your bike looked so clean.

    It was a very fun commuter for the winter, but the headset was complete crap and I didn't want to invest in it so I sold it with a bunch of crappy parts for $20. I think it gained like 10lbs when I sold it, heehee.

    Really cool custom work Scalty, love the Si cranks on there, they would be my first choice if I could make them work with my Spark. I guess you were willing to drill into your frame because it is out of warranty?

    I like your new ride too Jmartpr, the weight is really good too, amazing its only about a half pound heavier than Scalty's tricked out Scale. Nice looking bike. Did you get a frame weight?

    Thanks! Nope....no frame weight but I did make a mistake. Instead of buying a Scott Spark 10 frameset I purchased a whole bike and scrapped all parts. Later I discovered that complete bikes use HMF carbon and Framesets sold individually are HMX....that's pretty close to 100 extra grams from HMF to HMX for a medium.

    16.2lb as you see. But I'm changing a few parts so she will be losing at least one more pound.

    There is talk about that carbon lattice frame over on weight weenies forum. Unfortunately its far too expensive for us to even consider. I did ask the manufacturer to consider a switch to china and a subsequent reduction in manufacture costs and then a lowered retail price.

    Actually, I found some places on the net that sell sheets and yarns of Carbon fiber. I am thinking about hand forming a frame in my garage. The only spots to use aluminium or steel would be the bb and dropouts. This reduces the cost considerably.

    Nice. Where did you get the frame from?

    I love the spreadsheets some of you guys have put together. They would be even more helpful if people would include cost and vendor for each item. I'm doing that with my build, but I'm a bit anal like that.

    Bought the frame used locally. It was being tested by a local rider for Glacier Bikes. What i'm told is it came from the same factory that was making the Bianchi Oetzi.
