    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...)

    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.

    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.

    Wow, cool bike, Is that a Ritchey Carbon MTB fork? How old is it? it looks a bit different than their website, but I could be wrong. Thinking of using it on something this winter.

    I and my machinist buddy made it. It's a copy in carbon/aluminum of the Project 321 aluminum adapter/steerer. They have 2 versions: 1 for the Leftys with sliding clamps, and 1 for the ones with bonded clamps.

    I put a New Ultimate stem on it since this pic, a RaceFace Next SL bar, and KCNC Ti Pro Lite post, and the weight was under 18 pounds, but I sucked at riding it. Since then I've switched back to this post, and a Fox F80 fork, and the bike weighs a MASSIVE 20 pounds 14 ounces.

    19.7 lbs originally... I made some changes to it.

    Grips: Pork Rinds -> Pork Rinds + 3M adhesive spray -> ESI race thin -> ESI Chunky ... (I have a set of Ergon GX1s waiting if I still don't like the ESI.

    Bottle Cage: Karbon Wing-R 15g -> Specialized Rib Cage Pro MTB (my back jersey pocket held a water bottle better than that Karbon cage)

    Tires: Swapping it out depending on location... Lately it has been Racing Ralphs since the Furious Freds seem to be horrible on damp single track... I want some Rocket Rons when they come out.

    I also have a Recon 11-32T titanium cassette sitting on my work bench. I'm trying to give the Dura-Ace 12-27 9 speed a longer chance before I ditch it.

    My 19.7 lbs Kona Hei Hei Supreme finally done...

    Here's my boat. lol its not really super light (20.3 pounds) as is, although the XT dual action shifters, and discs are holding me back, as well as the XT crankset, and heavy scott seatpost. I'm aiming for 18 pounds in the long run, might have to change the fork... but for now, she rides like a dream!

    sexyblackbmw - switch out to sram! rid yourself of the XT crankset and brakes then your little things such as seatpost ect and you will be really light!

    Now down to 23.3 pounds (minus tools/bag/mini pump) as shown. Certainly could be well under 23 if I wanted to give up a comfy seat and remove the bar ends. And going to a shorter travel/lighter fork with less tunability could move it closer to 22 pounds. But that isn't going to happen, lol. Did go to the DT Swiss XR Carbon shock instead of the Cloud 9. And I killed my front X317 rim a week ago so I relaced the wheelset with DT's XRC 330's.

    can I join you guys with my poor man's version of a lightweight SS bike?





    my SS Huffy Alumina 8500 at 20.5 lbs.
    -Cannondale P Bone fork
    -Crossmax rims with Schwalbe Fast Fred tires using Stan's NoTubes
    -Thompson seatpost

    I can probably shave a bit more weight if I change a few other parts (plus $$$ permitting), but right now, its quite light for a Huffy! call it crazy, but, my fave bike at the moment! it goes anywhere and does anything my legs (and lungs) can dish out.

    Xmax, Schwalbe, Thomson, WTB... and you call it a poor man's bike? I used to have a sticker on one of my old bikes that said "If Huffy made a plane would you fly in it?" I have to say that is the nicest Huffy I have ever seen. Looks like it would be a blast to ride.

    Heres my 2002 Cannondale f800...







    I forgot to add on the cables and bolts (all Ti) so i'm going to say this is between 22-23lbs. I have it set up to do everything, I know the wheels are heavy, but they are bomb-proof, and i feel zero flex through them. The Lefty is by far the best 'fork' I have owned. The next upgrade is going to be the frame, i'm looking to get a UK custom Titanium build (Cotic, Enigma etc.) Which should bring the weight down around the 20-21lbs mark

    hehe, most parts are take-off from previous bikes that I had or still have, except for the Thompson seatpost at 25.4 - kinda hard to find, especially in silver. wanted to build a real Huffy bike with lighter parts and see how the frame fares out with the real mtb's., and honestly, it's not doing bad at all. other riders just can't believe I'm riding a Huffy. some picks it up expecting a 50 lb. bike and were surprised by the weight. it is a blast to ride regardless, and you can really feel that because of the lack of weight even comparing to some mtbs. its even got beautiful and strong looking welds, unlike the other cheap Huffy frames they put out. i would love to shave more weight, but $$ is an option I can't afford now. so til then, my ride remains...

    Oh yeah, my bad, i have done my math all wrong! I should have switched the frame weights, not subtract the new frame weight off the total

    Some sweet bikes in this thread guys. Very nice!


    I hadn't seen many 29ers though so I thought I'd throw mine in here. 19.84 lbs. (9.0kg) but I had tubes in it then.

    nice scale, does anyone know where I can get a good price for Ritchey WCS carbon seatpost 34.9mm x 350, for some reason online prices charges more for size 34.9 than 27.2 carbon, why is that, perhaps more material has been use or not widely use on other bikes except Scott? Cheapest one I found was $170US, considering 27,2 carbon post is $130US

    Thanks for the nice compliments guys. I've got a few "roadish" parts on there but some robust parts where it's needed. They've all been holding up very well after about 1200 miles. I think the SF is a fun platform to build up and the riding has been amazing!

    It looks like Rocky Mountain has joined the carbon sequestration program. Marie-Helene Premont and Max Plaxton were riding the new carbon hardtail Vertex at the Mont Sainte Anne World Cup and the Canadian National Championship races. Premont already has two gold medals with her bike in the first week of public exposure for the bike. And Alison Sydor was riding one in the TransAlps to grab a gold in the women's category there as well.

    Premont's mechanic was saying her bike weighed 19 pounds, and Plaxton's white version weighed 19.4 pounds in the large size (with more paint) with the XTR kit and Fox F80 fork. The carbon frame weighs a full pound less than the scandium Team frame. Apparently will have the carbon frame across several models, with less paint on the higher end models (full paint job weighs something like 100gms).

    Something else to divert money from my RSP contribution in 2009.

    It looks even more like the Wilier Solitario, but they're apparently being made by Martek in proprietary moulds. They have a slick integrated seat post collar and some nice detailing at the chainstay and seat stay yoke.

    When looking at that picture I couldn't care less about the bike... I'll miss Marie! If I didn't have my heart set on a new road bike this year I'd consider one of those carbon Vertex frames to replace my old aluminum Rocky ht.

    I agree both are nice to have, the frame however looks really stiff with good shapes. The new Specialized HT looks good too.

    Not the lightest but not too bad for the frame with somewhat of a budget to consider. 22.2 lbs.

    Well, you'll need an engineering degree... "Somewhat" of a budget, not a "strict" budget.
    What I meant was I made a lot of decisions, for example, like the X9 rear derailleur rather than an X0. I couldn't justify the extra $100+ to save 30 grams (or whatever it is) with more or less the same functionality. Stuff like that...

    Of my 7 mountain bikes, only 2 would I consider light. But, after reviewing the amazing bikes on this forum, I realize that they are not very light, after all. There's my 20.5 lb Vassago Optimus Ti 29er rigid singlespeed and my 22.7 lb Seven Sola Ti hardtail. Unfortunately, neither of these bikes gets ridden much. I always seem to grab one of the FS bikes (weights range from 25.5 lbs to 38 lbs) for the comfort factor.

    Very nice looking light weight bikes. I wish I have one, especially those dual susp. bikes under 20lbs!

    Question. Most of you guys have those really thin looking saddle seats (almost look like the road bikes...or is it?). Is this comfy? I do, 7 miles of uphill (road) non-stop and then 12 miles of downhill (loose rocks). On the uphill, my saddle (wtb) is not comfy. Not even for 1 mile of uphill. Will this type of seats be alright for uphill riding? Please advice. Thanks!

    I don't care for the very thin/minimalist seats and have not ridden one that felt comfortable so far... to me at least. I'd rather give up a little to have comfort and save that weight elsewhere unless I could find a nice comfy and light seat. Weight now accurate as shown even with bottle cage and bar ends... edit... with the new Syntace F99 and stronger XTR skewers minus cage/bar ends it's 23.10:

    It';s great to see that your seatpost alone costs more than the entire frame, not to mention the wheelset, etc.

    QUOTE=SS Gladiator]can I join you guys with my poor man's version of a lightweight SS bike?





    my SS Huffy Alumina 8500 at 20.5 lbs.
    -Cannondale P Bone fork
    -Crossmax rims with Schwalbe Fast Fred tires using Stan's NoTubes
    -Thompson seatpost

    I can probably shave a bit more weight if I change a few other parts (plus $$$ permitting), but right now, its quite light for a Huffy! call it crazy, but, my fave bike at the moment! it goes anywhere and does anything my legs (and lungs) can dish out.[/QUOTE]
