    I just installed Stan's ZTR 355 rims on the original Mavic CrossLand wheels. Basically they are the Crest version 1.0. It was hard to find anything good with 24 holes. I really like Stan's Flows and Pacenti TL28, but I could only find 32h. The hubs look really cool and the bearings are very smooth.

    The ZTR 355 actually weighs 360g, and the CrossLand rims were obese at 560g, so the wheelset was 2090g and now it's only 1690g, comparable to CrossMax.

    Together with a new Selle Italia seat and the original tires (310g Maxxis MaxxLite), the bike is now 20.98 pounds. With wider tires, it will be 22-23 pounds.

    Here is the before and after:

    Nice, I hope you're enjoying it!
    Dang it, now I'm running a coolness deficit for sure.

    2007 Magura Marta SL brake caliper + lever + hose weighs 212g
    2016 Shimano M615 brake caliper + lever + hose weighs 270g

    2007 cassette SRAM PG-980 34t weighs 310g
    2016 cassette Shimano HG81 36t weighs 365g

    So just being newer doesn't mean something is better or "more modern".
    $3500 doesn't buy the quality it did just 9 years ago.

    I love this bike! Now that the weather is warming up, I have been doing some trail riding and hill climbing with it, and it's wonderful.

    I originally just bought it to put the components on my FSR. Now it's definitely a keeper.
