    My New Evil Sovereign

    This is my interpretation of an all mountain Clydesdale worthy hardtail (Im 6 feet tall and weigh 245 lbs). Im still experimenting with stem lengths (I have a 70mm stem on order) and rise (hence the crazy stack of spacer) but will be cutting the fork to its final length shortly . I have not logged too much saddle time yet (just a couple of purposefully tame tuning rides) but so far so good.

    • Frame: Long Silver Sovereign
    • Fork: 05’ Manitou Firefly Plus, SPV Evolve, 150mm, 20mm Axle, Extra Firm Ti Spring
    • Headset: Chris King
    • Stem: Thomson 90mm with 5-degree rise
    • Handle Bar: Easton Lo-Rise Monkey Lite CT2 Carbon
    • Grips: ODI Lock-On, grip shift length
    • Shifters: SRAM 9.0 Gripshift
    • Brake Levers: SRAM 9.0
    • Seat Post: Cane Creek Thudbuster LT, 31.6mm
    • Seat Post Collar: Salsa Lip-Lock
    • Saddle: WTB, SST.2K, Ti rails
    • Cranks/BB: RaceFace Atlas with DH BB cups
    • Rings: E.Thirteen 36T Supercharger, 36T and 24T RaceRings
    • Pedals: Crank Bros Mallet
    • Front Derailleur: Shimano XT
    • Rear Derailleur: SRAM 9.0SL Long Cage
    • Cassette: SRAM 9.0 11-32
    • Chain: SRAM PC-99
    • Wheels: Magura FR UST – basically DT Swiss Hugi FR hubs (relabeled Magura) with DT Swiss Champion spokes and the older version of the Mavic 823 rims.
    • Tires: Hutchinson Spider UST, 2.1
    • Brakes: Avid BB7, 203 Front, 185 Rear
    • Total Weight: Roughly 33 Lbs

    Does anyone else think that weight sounds a bit heavy considering there is nothing tank-ish on that bike other than the brakes? I would have guessed it to be lighter.

    How much does yours weigh JNC?

    I was hoping to get my DOC built under 30, and closer to 27. Maybe not so...

    Congrats on the new ride!!
    Looks ace except for the steerer tube poking out so far.
    Other than that (and maybe the carbon bars) i think you have an awesome AM rig there!
