    Proof of Concept: 36lb Canfield Balance

    Here is my latest build. It's my proof of concept build for the SickLines “Do-It-All” Bike Build Guide. It actually weighs in at around 34.1 lbs to about 36.5 lbs depending on tire and tube/tubeless choice. I'd put the build spec in the thread now but I don't want to ruin the surprise.



    The article will feature all of the parts that I've chosen for the build. I'm giving a little commentary on each part as well as showing off lots of pictures.

    Lets see a picture of the bike on an actual scale to belive the weight.

    If it's a "Do it all" bike the gear range is limiting to alot of trails.

    Good looking build.

    There is the weight page in there as well (page 6).

    You are correct about the gears limiting but a DRS or similar guide can be used instead if you wanted more gearing.

    My bad I didn't click on the little picture links yesterday. Figured maybe those weights were "published" not true actual weights.

    That is such a sweet bike. If I'd known it could have been built up so light I never would have bought my 6.6. This is definately on my 'list of bikes to own before I die'.

    I'll bet that Saddle saved you at least 5 pounds.

    Can you even sit on that thing?


    Sweet bike. Love the Balance w/a 66.

    Hehe, it saved him more like maybe 80g (the seat is 160g).

    LOL it's a common comment. It's actually not that bad to sit on at all. I'm used to running saddles with thin padding so it's not bad to me. It has a lot of flex so it doesn't have a harsh ride really at all.
