    What rims are those?

    Atomlab pedals look real nice, but I'm not a fan if they're still using the c-clip at the end of the spindle.

    You can drop some weight with those cranks and guide. Saints and LG-1 with Taco.

    Really sharp looking bike though.

    I think those are 729 rims.

    Awesome looking bike. By any chance do you know the weight on them?

    Are you the guy that was riding a mostly blue bike with blue rims and wearing blue pants and a blue jersey this past weekend?
    I think I am getting the same bike becasue they are very inexpensive

    red pedals?? did that c-clip poop out already on the other ones...that does seem to be the downfall of those badboys. That bike is hot... one of the best spec'd dh rigs out there. Provides good results for u in the races to u bastad. Weekend trip to platty last weekend of the month if you're down.

    I was going to say something along the lines of "729s come in blue?!?!?!?!?!" Then I realized they are OE for Giant. Sick.

    You might be able to convert your current e13 guide into an LG1 with the LG1 parts tree. As long as you've got those two extra holes on the backplate to mount the taco, all you would need is the top guide of the LG1.

    Boooo... Spoke protector...

    Ditching that SRAM cassette for something like an Ultegra or XT or pg990 with the aluminum carrier also drops a good amount of weight.
