    New question here. saving weight and cash

    saving weight and cash..
    say I buy a carbon ht frame: a Orbea Alma, Scott Scale Limited, or Trek 9.9
    and I already have a RS Sid fork & pedals
    where is or are the most economic source(s) for lightest (but proven) gruppo of X.O, XTR, tubless disk-hub wheelset, & Marta SLs or Ouro Puros?
    goal is to have a complete sub-19# tubeless wheeled xc/'cross hardtail 1st and save cash 2nd.

    Sub 19lbs with UST rims might be tough....

    but converted tubeless is not too hard.

    Look through some bikes on my site for ideas light-bikes.com
    Using your SID makes it easier!

    I would say mix and match parts to suit your style and preferce over one specific group.
