    THe size option for the bottom bracket at 68/73(one option) and 100mm(second option). Does the 68/73 fit the fuse body?
    Curious why are you changing your bottom bracket? Is it because it creaks?
    Is the SRAM DUB BSA threaded?
    I might have missed smthg you posted earlier, but if you're changing bb's, overall very good to go with threaded.

    Doing an experiment with my fuse. I previously had a Santa Cruz Blur that I sold the frame but still had the components. A friend asked what the bike weighed and I noted it was about 25.2 with pedals (carbon frame, pike, 29s, XT/XTR build).

    Then I started to think about what it would weigh if I swapped some parts.

    I swapped:
    Pike for step cast 34
    GX cassette for TRS race
    2.6 rekon/minion SS for 2.35 forekasters
    Removed SWAT tool

    Itís now down to 22.75 lb without pedals. The lowest I think I could get it down to is about 22 even by swapping cranks and going from XT to XTR brakes.

    Pretty damn good for a trail geometry hard tail.

    Funny you bring up weight, I got mine back from having the SRAM brakes replaced under warranty and my 90-day tune up, so my SWAT storage was empty and I decided to hang it up from the good old fishing scale for a true weight...26lbs, 14oz. Not terrible at all, and I am not running light tires or a light dropper, or really anything svelte except for the carbon frame and carbon Roval wheels. Standard GX Eagle drivetrain, Aeffect cranks, Helm Works 130 fork (almost 1lb heavier than the stock Reba), aluminum bars, lower end Shimano clipless pedals. If I really wanted to throw some money at it I could get it down closer to 25# but for right now I'm pretty stoked on it.

    My Fattie is a little less fat and getting a smoking new fork in the next week. Since I brought it up to BC from Phoenix and had 29" wheels built for it etc. I call it the 'BC Edition' like Rocky Mountain special builds. I'll post pics and details soon.
