    building me a slightly lighter mtb

    I got a hold of a norco frame for cheap and i tought it would be a good idea to upgrade my mtb a little bit since I had the impression of riding a boat anchor with my old frame.

    so parts swap begun today then i realised i need a new integrated headset, a derailleur hanger and a new disc brake compatible rear wheel.

    the headset problem was solved, I bought a cane creek locally for 15$
    the derailleur hanger will get taken in hand by the shop which sold me the frame

    i will only need a rear disc compatible wheel, then later ill get a used crankset from here or pinkbike ,this time it will have removable crank rings and be within my budget.

    ill get pictures tomorow, dead batteries now

    If you're really trying to shed some weight, buy a cheap electronic kitchen scale, weigh all your parts, and put the parts/weights in a spreadsheet. That way you can easily see exactly where all the weight is, and can most effectively and economically upgrade.
