    How? I see your on an SL.
    How did you remove 5-6#s?
    I do think it's awesome to get an e-bike to basically a normal bike weight, well done.
    Thanks.

    Is that without the battery pack? Obviously, no WW around here posts their bike weight with full water bottles...

    Weight Weenie parts and a high torque motor don't seem like they would make a good match. Unless you are like most hardcore weight weenies and just weigh your bike instead of riding it.

    I bet at least 2 lbs came from different tires

    I think the SL is cool but the 34mm fork indicates that weight was the priority over performance.
    I'm more impressed by the 42# full power 36mm forked Crafty personally.
    Still, I dream of using high end parts to create a rad and light e-bike.

    Well, why don't you follow the unwritten weight weenies convention. You publish a photo of the bike on a scale, and you publish the list of the parts & weights.

    Shaving 6 pounds from the Levo Comp SL would take some doing ... but if you can show how an electric bike can get to the same ballpark of many low-end enduro bikes it would be very interesting
