    Sorry for the super size in case anybody complains.

    I do like it too. Red spacers on the cassette?

    It's got a lot of impossible mods though - rear der, front der, seatpost guts . . .

    I wonder what the front chainring tooth counts are?

    That build is crazy light. The only thing left to do is to strip the paint off......

    According to the spreadsheet in the link, 42 - 32. No granny.

    Wow, that's insane. 6132 grams = 13.52 lbs
    The translation doesn't reveal much (other than that 13.52 lb insanity), but check out the Google translation here

    So those rims, a years worth of avoiding the olive garden, they're pretty light but not as light as stans right? Higher weight limit I think though except 28 spokes might be an issue.

    Also I have to wonder why use tubular rims like Frischi when you can just run tubeless with this? Tubular rims have got to be pretty heavy until Lew makes a pair for us.

    Actually tubular rims are usually always lighter than clinchers. That's why they lasted in road racing circles for so long... I have two NOS Wolber TR1 26" MTB tubular rims (circa-1991, this whole frishy tubular stuff is actually just the latest time they've tried bringing out mountain bike tubulars) which are each 444 grams, in a 25.5mm width. Now at the time, in Wolber's rim catalog... the other "clincher" model MTB tims were the AT15 at 430g and 20mm width, the AT18 at 460g and 22mm width, and the AT20 at 520g and 26mm width. If they made tubular 29er tires for example, I'd be all set to build wheels as I have a LOT of NOS 700C tubulars rims at my disposal.

    wow - we are impressed-really!
    your knowledge of vintage bike parts is really cool BUT this is 2008 and a completely different story

    back on topic:
    if Sebastian Roth would have wanted the bike could have been MUCH lighter. Seb is the guy stripping the paint off of several other Scott Carbon frames and he definitely has the knowledge to build uber-light bikes but this one is still doing it's job. it's not unrideable unlike most bikes of this weight-category.
    i'm glad i see my 140mm discs on it as well. Sebastian was eagerly waiting for them to arrive and was one of the first to get them. i also note the changed cablerouting and just yesterday got to know that the bikes of the Swisspower team with Frischi etc. use this modification as well which allows them to use SRAM Force front derailleurs.

    I agree, the bike looks pretty standard to most passers-by, but most on here understand how crazy a sub 14 pound hartail is. The fact that there is still room for futher loss is impressive. This is not some heavy handed hack job eighter...well played.

    I thought that BlownCivic's 13.25 Pedal Force rigid was light. This thing is crazy light and looking at the picture, is very well done.

    I did not take a close look at the rear derailleur but I just tuned my Dura-Ace rear for my road bike and it came in at 142g so for him to get his down to just over 100g is crazy light.

    I like this build a lot.

    I'd surely choose good rigid fork than SID w/o damper.

    Anyway it's definetly nice ;]

    It would not be that terribly hard to make an air-damping valve stack for a Sid to replace the oil-damper valve stack and the associated oil. If you've ever taken apart a Noleen MegaAir, its damper assembly is beautifully simple and lightweight.

    Awesome build! Insanely light!

    XRC 330! CC sells each rim for $699! But DT is currently researching converting 'em to tubeless, they’re not recommending it at the moment because tubeless means lower pressure and lower pressure could mean the rim walls impacting on the ground!
