    thats pretty sweet... my boxxer race weighs in at 6.7lbs... never thought an 888 could be so light... haha.

    How's the weight weenie build coming? Mine is at 40.5lbs or so now if not lighter... XSL_Will has shipped my sealant so i'm finally getting rid of the DH tube in the rear when i get some time to do it... haha. And as for wheels, just got the numbers on how much it would cost, but with christmas this close, dont see it happening just yet...

    Yeah its not bad at all. Weight wennie is going slow the fork is the first new thing ive gotten and im only losing about a tenth of a pound with it. Before next summer though the tubes are coming out, a new saddle will be put on, possibly new pedals and handle bars too. If i do all that im hoping to be under 40 but idk for sure.

    I dont recommend you guys ride those bikes they sound to heavy for you and you might get a Hernia or worse especially with this cold weather.

    New delima here, Captain Cheapo here has a sweet aluminum 12mm axle that is a tad to large for the dropouts on Blitz but I also have a over weight steel 12mm axle that fits fine. My idea is to put the aluminum axle in a drill then clamp the drill into the vise and trim it till it fits properly, kinda a poor mans lathe. I paid 50 to have the axle made for a '99 SupaAte and figure it will be another 25 to get it trimmed to fit. I feel drill will work what ya think??

    Use a drill press. Find a bearing that fits the axle. Insert bearing onto axle. Put axle in drill press so it goes through the hole on the press table. Trim it from the bottom. that way, it won't flex.
    I've used my drill press like a lathe MANY times using that technique, or something similar at least.
    A good sharp file will make short work of it when it's on the lathe....I mean press.
    Look, whatever happens, don't fight the mountain.

    If you gots a vise, you can clamp the drill in it......that'll give you a free hand and make things easier.
    I'd give it a go.

    Did the axle in chuck lathe job and RudeSechsVibe was correct the axle was to large for the drill chuck but I put the big head to use and got it to work out just fine. Now Blitzen has a sweet custom made by DKG and modified by DJR aluminum 12mm rear axle

    Took some patients and came out really good. Interesting thing is the axle fit one way just fine but if flipped right to left it didn't seat all the way into the drop-out.
