    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.

    Nice aggressive looking bike Matt, and a really nice weight with some real tires on there. What are the skewers that you're running, they don't look familiar?

    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 2007 Scott Spark (Medium)...18 Lbs 12 oz as seen on the picture. Will change the following parts (parts are here) and probably reach flat 18 lbs or maybe high 17 lbs.

    XTR pedals for Looks Quartz Carbon Ti pedals
    XTR 11-34 Cassette for Recon Ti 11-32 Cassette
    Selle Italia SLR Carbonio Flow for Tune Speedneedle in Suede (black of course)
    Easton EC90 for Schmole TLO handlebar

    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!
