    Nice build

    That's a sharp build. I still love the stealth look. Always looks business.

    On-one Scandal

    After getting the White Brothers fork broken in, switching to a Thompson layback post and changing the tires to SB8's this bikes rides sweet. Climbs like a goat and carves in the singlestrack. I have even put my full suspension aside in favor of this rig.

    Lovely bike

    Is that a 16" Scandal? What length stem are you running? How tall are you, height, legs etc

    sorry for all the questions I am just trying to fine tune the sizes I need to get

    I am currently building a rigid single speed Scandal and have got the build down to 15.8lb on paper

    Such a bargain lightweight frame

    Cheers chap

    I am 5'7" (always thought I was 5'9" until a month ago ) with a 30" inside leg so my plan for a 16" Scandal and an 80mm stem seems to be just the ticket

    Thanks being a bit shorter in the body and leg than you again confirms that a 16" with an 80mm stem should be the ticket

    Dagnabit! I love my Scandal, but it weighed in at 25 lbs! I know my Atac Alium pedals could be part of the prob, but still...

    I think the lack of gears and shocks help

    Although with 9x3 and a set of R7 MRD forks on she would be 18.7 lbs

    Ordering my frame on Monday yay

    Yeah, I'm sure the lack of gearing lightens things up. I also had to go with a few Sette parts (seatpost, stem) that might be thwarting my efforts.

    At the end of the day losing bike weight costs, I could have probably gone a bit lighter if I paid out a lot more, but I felt that the 1700 I am spending was the best "bang for bucks" without going crazy.

    I am using a lot of KCNC components which are pretty cheap for such lightweight parts!
