    Lightweight 1x10 setup advice

    I have decided that my 9:zero:7 has got to go on a diet...wheels seems to be relatively straightforward. I am currently running 2x9 with gigapipe bottom bracket and hussefelt 2.2 crankset. The rear portion of the drivetrain seems pretty easy, but I'd like to go to a 1x10 or 1x9 setup. What is my best option for lightweight 100mm shell bottom bracket and crankset.

    Any other advice on dropping weight?

    I'd say Middleburn/Phil Wood or the e13 crankset :-)

    Anyone else have ideas? The e13 triple is the only e13 crankset that fits 100mm shell

    I'm using an ISIS Middleburn with an ISIS BB - seems to be about the lightest inexpensive way.

    I am however waiting for a Ti Phil Wood BB to arrive, and I'll be using Middleburn square taper cranks with that.

    You can save significant rotating weight on pedals by using old fashioned road/track pedals. Light, cheap, and never slip if you wear suitable outdoor footwear. Much lighter than flat pedals.

    Any idea how much weight that saves?

    How much do your pedals weigh?

    My flats are 365 grams/pr and cost me $42 on eBay.

    My flats are 300 g, barely more than my Candy Ti's. They cost just under double what yours did. Welgo MG I think with ti axle. I only use them when it's real cold though, or when I'm too lazy to switch back to clipless.

    I put some Exustars on my wifes bike that weigh 210 g but they are a very small platform even smaller than the old school road pedals.

    354gms and about the same price. Relatively narrow, so less pedal strike.

    I use Wellgo MG-1s, and much prefer them over that style of pedal.

    Pedal strikes only happened a couple times when I first got my Fatback, now they're no problem.

    I ride with my feet a good distance away from the crank arm, as it bothers my ankles to constantly rub them on the arms.. I don't know how people ride like that and wear off all the finish on their cranks. So a wide platform is necessary for me.
