    Big switch for me...

    Last year:


    As of Tuesday:
    Mountain bikers who don't road ride are usually slow.
    Roadies who don't mountain bike are usually d***s.

    How time flies!!!!

    The 4th season commences next month for this 2010 JET 9. It needs to be cleaned up to get in ship shape, but once they put the kabosh on salting the streets around here for winter, I'll give it a cleaning and a once over to get it ready.

    JETwithTwoIkons

    Maxxis Ikon 2.35 front/Ikon 2.2 rear.

    All cleaned up at the beginning of last year's season with Nobby Nic 2.25's f/r...

    Sweet looking SS!!! I hope those Ikon 2.35's get released sooner rather than later. Mine was only about 42g more than your new 2.2 (due to my 2.35 prototype being the non-EXO which I think is fine for a front tire here in the Midwest).

    Whoa! 21.7 pounds? How is that possible?!?

    I test rode a Yeti ASR-5 Carbon this weekend. With full XT components and no pedals it was 25.04 lbs. The frame is 4.75 pounds. The Spearfish frame is 5.3 pounds or so. That's over a half pound increase. The pedals are probably a little over a half pound (275 g?) so you're adding a pound of weight over the Yeti.

    But you're still about 4.4 pounds lighter than the Yeti? What's the secret? Are the SRAM XX components and those American Classic Wheels enough to drop almost four and a half pounds???

    Wait...and it's a 29er??? You've managed to trim a good 6 pounds off the bike weight just on drivetrain, cockpit, and wheels? SIX POUNDS??

    What's your secret?
    I live with fear and danger every day. And on the weekends she lets me go mountain biking.

    21.7 lbs is totally possible. Very light, but possible.

    Wheels around 1400grams
    Tubeless
    Furious Fred on back (300ish grams)
    Full XX
    Etc.

    I just built up a Spearfish 1 29er that weighs a 25 pounds with pedals (it was under 25 but I switched to a more durable tire in the rear) and It's not even a full on weight weenie build.





    24.91 pounds with pedals and Rocket Rons front and rear!

    The build:
    16" Spearfish 1 frame
    Reba RLT 29 fork
    Easton EC70 Post
    Niner Flat Top Carbon Bars
    XT Plus RD
    X0 FD
    XT Shifters
    XT 11-36 Cassette
    XO Crank with Race Face 38/26 rings
    Specialized Carbon Roval Wheelset
    Rocket Ron front and Rear
    XT Brakes with XT Rotors
    XTR Pedals
    ergon Grips
    Specialized Phenom saddle.

    The spearfish frame is a incredible value for the money. My carbon Blur XC weighed more than my aluminum spearfish

    I could make it a pound lighter with xx1 but I like it where it's at as far as affordability and replacement part costs go. I can;t stomach the cost of those xx1 and xx cassettes..

    I know this isn't the weight weenies board but the weight of that Spearfish build surprised me so much that I'm thinking other possibilities.

    It's entirely feasible, then, for a Yeti ASR Carbon to be sub 20 pounds? With a frame weight of 4.4 pounds, that's 0.9 pounds less than the Spearfish. I've heard 26" vs. 29er wheels are a pound total at worst. Up to 2 lbs. at best. That would put the ASR Carbon at 19.8 pounds worst case and 18.8 pounds best case.

    An 18.8 pound bike with 4" of front and rear suspension just boggles my mind!

    He's got a featherweight saddle and post on there, light wheels, a 360g rear tire, a 485g front tire, and I'm sure the rest of the components (brakes, drivetrain, cockpit) are all WW stuff weight wise.

    650B Blur XCc 2013 vintage

    22.5lbs with RR tires and pedals, computer, bottle cage, Grilla Guardz frame protector included. Could be a little lighter but at the expense of durability.

    That is a great looking Blur. I have really enjoyed the 650B wheelset on my Blur. Went to a 1X9 set up on for racing that also allowed a 0.9lb weight drop.
