    Just what I was hoping!

    The goal for my new XCL build was ~28.0lbs. Borrowed my friends high quality fish scale yesterday and it tipped the scales at 28.03 lbs and that's with DHX 5.0 shock!

    Components:
    XTR shifters/front derailluer
    XT cranks/rear derailluer
    2007 Fox Talas RLC
    American Classic Wheelset
    WTB Ti saddle
    Specialized tires
    XTR cables
    Juicey 7 brakes
    Thompson seatpost and stem
    Raceface XC riser bar (alloy... carbon fiber doesn't belong on mountain bikes)

    This bike absolutely rocks! I live in the North East and ride a lot of technical singletrack. With my Santa Cruz Superlight I had to pick my lines carefully, to the point where I was over-thinking. This bike chews up the trails, pick a line and just hammer! It also climbs like a goat.

    I beg to disagree about carbon handlebars. I've been using monkey lites and the raceface carbon handlebars and they are stiff and strong. You should try them and shave off a few more ounces.

    Congratulations on the build! Nice weight!
