    How do you like those LS Peaty grips, Kirjo?

    Yeah mate. They are awesome. Look a bit dirty though now, but they scrub up OK. I have ODI Ruffians on my Intense Spider, but I think I like the Lizard Skins better. By the way, the best grips ever are ODI Intense Lock ons. They are friggin awesome, but they wear out real quick.

    Nice...I think that may be my next set of grips. I have the Lizard Skins Moabs right now and they are pretty solid. Don't know if I will be getting the white though since my bike is all black, but who knows. I really like the red, white, and blue. Thanks for the info kirjo, enjoy that sweet ride of yours.

    Cheers for that mate. I actually built the cannondale up to be a spare bike. I've only ridden it twice so im not used to it at all. I like my Intense Spider more, but I cracked the frame. Oh well.

    You can get the Lizard Skins Peaty in graphite colour with red clamps. They look awesome.

    Yes, I've actually looked at that possibility seeing I have the 22t ring up front. But... I will already be at 21.77 based on weights of the Cycle King saddle/KCNC post I need to use the saddle, Halo bolt-on skewers, Titec grips, and the ti caliper mount bolts. Time to leave it alone a while, lol. I can't complain about a sub-22 lb full suspension bike.

    Black bike? You might want to try the Peatys (graphite/red) as mentioned... Here's a pic of mine...




    cheers

    (btw, down to 26.78lbs w/ Nev 2.1/SB8 2.1 tires - not super light but getting lighter)

    Very nice, MI_canuck. Your bike has changed a little bit since the last time I saw it in the Fisher owners thread. Actually, I have that same exact color, being that my bike is an 08 tassajara. I wish I could get blue locks for those graphite peatys, since that is the secondary color I wanted to introduce to my bike, but since yours looks so sweet I think I may just go with red instead.

    You could buy two sets of the white Peatys to get 4 blue lock rings. Of course, then you'd had two pairs of white with red rings, but you could probably sell those off easily.

    Love your Intense spider Duckman. No other bike I have ridden feels as good as it. MIne is a heavy old crate though, don't know why, as im running

    Race Face Deus cranks Candy SL pedals
    X9 gears, 990cassette
    fsa Kforce bars and fsa FR230 stem
    Mavic 819s with DT240s hubs
    Thomson post, Rocket V seat Ti
    Manitou swinger shock
    R7 Platinum 100mm forks
    XT brakes, 180mm XT front rotor
    160mm rear rotor- (its a Deore, some weight in that!)

    Mine is a large frame though, but that shouldn't make that much difference should it?

    Any idea of how I can strip some weight off it? at the moment im sure its over 27lbs....

    Thanks - I love the brakes. Modulation is really good actually - I find it's one improvement the Elixir has over the Juicy.

    Wow,

    That's hot.

    What frame is that? The top tube and seat stays look like the orbea roadie's.

    Do you have any close up of the seat clamp? It looks nicely integrated into the frame.......looks great!

    Ah ha, finally another person using the DT XRC330 carbon fiber rims. How have you liked them thus far? I've been very pleased with mine but have not seen many others on them and am curious...

    Yep, that's a demo '09 Vertex 70 frame that I've spent some time on sorting out my build until the frame I ordered arrives, it'll be a few grams heavier with paint and decals on it, but it rides so nice I just won't care. My LBS knows how to set the hook and reel me in.

    The XRC 330 rims are spectacular. Light and stiff, and these wheels are built with 32 spokes in the rear and 28 in the front on 240S hubs. I wanted a wheels that wasn't going to feel flexy and these meet that criteria. The wheel builder at my LBS said that the bare rims were the straightest and truest he's ever seen before they had a spoke anywhere near them and they trued up and tensioned up very evenly and quickly.

    Ditto, I found the same thing. I used 32h rims front and back though laced to King hubs. The carbon rims are super stiff compared to the old 317's I ran. Night and day difference in them I feel.
