    IMO, all these ultra-light WW rigs are good for is putting them in a glass display case for viewing. I wouldn't feel safe riding that rig on any challenging ST, myself. It's beautiful, though!

    This tires have 57-58mm width so it is about 2,25-2,28" real width, not so big
    I ride them in mountains and they give great control on downhills and single tracks, they have very low rolling resistance, and give really comfortable ride. I know that they are heavy to ww built, but I wont change them to any other for now.

    In my opinion bike doesn't have any week points, stiff and fast, what do you think ?

    If those are such a narrow 2.4,I guess it would be OK,I'm not that familliar with Conti's.

    Week points? Well it's up to you and what you do with it,isn't it?
    For me,the ultralight saddle and 120mm stem/flat bar combo would have to go,and some 2.2 ~500gr tires (not thinking in anyone in particular) would be enough.

    Still,great machine,one can really tell the time tou spent putting it together.
    Enjoy!
    Gajas what?

    Thanks Nozes ! Stem and bar was bought for last season bike. It is stiffer than any Ritchey stem, and bar is superb This bike is designed to my weight (78kg - 172lbs) and riding style.

    Putting it together took so much time.... over 1,5 year...

    That's a really nice bike.

    I particularly like your custom made front derailleur mount in order to use a road front derailleur on the frame.



    I'd consider replacing the red aluminium bolts attaching the direct mount bracket to the frame with some stronger ones though. A lot of force goes through those bolts whenever you shift chainrings which could potentially cause the aluminium bolts to shear off.

    Very nice! Personally, I don't see anything on this bike that isn't race/rideable, looks like a super light, very solid ride!

    Hello,

    As always the beauty is on the smallest details and this build as a lot of them.
    The DMD-Braze FD adapter is brilliant, have you thought of selling them?

    Best.

    Yes I can make more of them, but this is not an advertising forum, and I don't want to brake rules. PM for details

    LOL. He puts tires with real trail capability on the bike and still gets complaints.

    Everything looks pretty realistic to me Not like the usual 1x10 close ratio road cassette slick tire BS.

    Nozes nailed it.
    Those tires are hilarious. They are clearly bigger than 2.2s. Maybe 2.5s?
    It looks like some Idida-bike snow tire.
    Why not break the 20lb barrier with 2.2s?

    However, there is incredible attention to detail in this build.
    I don't see anything that is too fragile, but I'm 155lbs.

    I don't think it's that bad with the exception of the saddle and pedals. The wheels might be flexy but it's not something that's going to get you hurt.

    As I said before: This tires have 57-58mm width so it is about 2,25-2,28" real width, not so big. (in my opinion).
    The reasons are: faster and more confident riding with more comfort. I used to ride with lightweight tires, but when riding in mountains, there is no place for such tires. I had Nobby Nic ~475g and I cut it so many times that I forgot how it is to ride a bike, not to carry one... Sealant didn't help...

    For riding in lowlands I have 2nd wheelset on Tufo XC2 Plus tires:



    And picture from last year project:

    Super nice bike !
    I'd be happy to race it at 5'4" and 135 lbs

    The beauty of different size/type tires is you can change a bike capacities easily in a couple minutes.
    I couple hundred grams could be worth the weight penalty vs traction on some ride or race venues.

    Have you raced with the X-Kings? Looks like something I would be interested for or local rough XC course, would like some more volume without adding much weight...

    My race bike is around 28lbs, depending on race/ride day tires..ouch...

    Cheers,
    Paul

    It's not hilarious if he actually rides offroad. What's wrong with X-King 2.4s? For their size and grip its hard to find lighter so they are a WW dream come true.

    I think all those WW bikes with 260-300g semi slick tyres are hilarious.

    Yes, I race on them in MTB Maraton races in mountains and other races in hard terrain. I can only say that they are awesome !!

    For the record,I use 2.1 Rocket Ron's (~400gr.) on my bike for racing,if the conditions are dry I will use a Kenda Small Block8 1.95 (470gr.) on the rear.
    Last marathon was a very rocky course,I used a 60tpi Kenda Karma 2.0 (480gr.)in the front,with the SB8 and was great.
    For the mud in the winter and real loose terrain I may use Bontrager's Mud-X 2.0 (~530gr.),really great tires.

    Mind you I don't feel the need for larger tires probably because I have the skills to get away with such light options,I also race downhill,and use Onza Canis 2.4's on my Trek Session.
    Gajas what?

    You need to give the whole low pressure (28-32psi) big volume tyre thing a go. Your tyre list looks like the sort of thing that we were forced to run 15 years ago when the lightweight high volume tyres weren't available. Deformation in the sidewall over rocks and roots give the high volume tyres much less rolling resistance and also absurd levels of grip. A RaceKing SS 2.2 also weighs 10g less than your SB8.

    My Karma 2.0 started out around 425g and now I have two used sets that are under 400g and still look hardly worn next to a new tire. The Karmas are great for rock, ok on roots, good in mud thats not clay. I find them a bit sketchy as a front when its really dry. Biggest problem is pinch flats.

    I also sometimes use Nevs when finishing is more important than going for broke... 1.95 Nev is around 575g and the 2.1 around 675g. Ironically my best time for my local course is on the 2.1 Nevs bringing up the wheel weight about a pound.. GO figure .....

    I love riding a higher volume tire at lower PSI so I think I am going to give those 2.4's a try !!!
    Hope we are not highjacking the OP topic ... still a nice bike

    Cheers,
    Paul

    Well done on such a great build. Sensational bike! I run the 2.4 X-King upfront and it is an amazing tire, it rolls so well for its size doesn't it?
