    Post your light-weight bikes!

    It seems like every other forum out there has a "post your bike here" thread, and I enjoy nothing more than some weenied out bike porn!

    So, post up your light-weight rigs! Hard-tail, FS, Carbon, Ti, whatever!

    Try to include a weight along with some pictures to give us all something to get excited about!

    -Skim



    (I'll post my new rig once it arrives in the mail...)

    Here's one of my bikes (20.6 lbs as it sat). The other is a turner nitrous (being built) that should be 17 lbs when done soon.

    If only new t'would be nice to have it in a case. The nitrous build contains 90% used parts, 01 sid race, formula b4sl's , 05 nitrous frame...only a few new parts like derailleurs, chain. Hardly a display case needed. Your bike on the other hand, doesn't seem too different than the one I currently ride.

    BTW, how are those freds working out? THinking about them for the display case bike and the blur....I'm on hard packed some rocks and gravel. Okay or nay, currently on RR 2.1's.

    Blur XC 20.75 lbs w/tubes

    from a couple years ago. Ended up with 4ti's as pedals and some lighter skewers and no bar ends. 20.59 was the last I weighed it at that point.

    I have the tank in this thread, lol. It's a (new build, just got it done a few weeks ago) '05 NRS C1 16.5" frame with new Cloud 9, '06 Reba WC, King/317 wheels with Specialized tires, Race Face ti BB and NEXT LP crankset, ATAC pedals with Stan's ti kit, '08 XTR frt/rear derailleurs and shifters, Profile (XACD) stem, Titec 118 bar with Mid 100 ends and Bontrager grips, Formula Evo brakes with Alligator 160/140 rotors, USE Alien post with WTB Rocket V SLT saddle. As shown (minus the bag and mini pump) it's 23.98 pounds. Could easily drop down a long ways from there but I'll leave well enough alone. Sub-24 is fine for me.

    They are surprisingly durable, and much more puncture resistant than expected. They are great on hardpack, and actually not too bad for loose climbs at lower pressures. They dont exactly stick like glue during hard cornering, but thats alright as they are like fusion powered rocket ships on the straights.

    I generally run Racing Ralphs for 90% of my riding conditions though. The new '08 versions are phenom!

    Love the gold alligators on there. What carbon mini pump is that? Must be light. I consider anything less than 24 lbs pretty damn light for an FS since most high end xtr builds out of the factory are just around or just above that. Sweet build.

    To my suprise, my brother in law came over with some new Furious' tonight. We mounted them with tubes before doing the tubeless thing. Boy, those things roll sweet. I can tell a difference between them and my old style RR's. Also, my other riding partner's running the maxxlite 310's and those things are super sweet rollers too. The newer RR's are better rollers than the older ones? It seems the tread wouldn't allow for smooth transition from knob to knob, however I guess you can't tell until you ride em. Still thinking....

    Except it may not work well volume-wise to fill anything other than a road tire. That's why I opted for the larger-volume pump.
