    yes, that sounds about right. my arc was pretty similar. it's never going to be a weightweenie build with the frame being so heavy, but honestly it doesn't matter. the frame rides so well, i believe i was faster on it than my scale with predominantly identical builds. it was just as comfortable as the full carbon frame as well.

    to drop some weight i'd change the rotors, seatpost (if you can live with a shorter one) and grips - a2z 90 grams rotors, a nice light post (kcnc?), ritchey wcs grips will save ~250grams.

    is the fork an '08 model or earlier? a new r7 mrd fork would save ~200 grams, more if the fork is '07 or earlier. a 2008 sid will save ~50 grams on an '07 or earlier fox fork.

    you can drop a fair bit of weight in the wheels as well, but they're so damn nice i wouldn't bother.

    Not much

    Not much I would change about that build, sounds like a rad bike. I love the ARC. I would definitely go to the Stans system- not a ton of weight savings, but the performance gain and puncture resistance is phenomenal. Keep your grips; lock-ons are worth the weight in my opinion. A very few things you could change for some savings without sacrificing performance:

    Ligher fork (big bucks, but the new 08 R7 is sweet)

    Cassette (XTR=big bucks, but it's light)

    Chain (KMC X9sl is really light, and shifts just as well as XTR chain; KMC makes lots of shimano chains)

    Seatpost (Thomson masterpiece or a light carbon post would save a chunk of weight, and you could cut them down unless you really need all that post. I'd be surprized, though, since if that was the case you probably should be riding a bigger frame and/or longer cranks)
    A hardtail is forever

    Is that frame really all that heavy? They claim that its 4.7lbs. Does that include the rear shock or not? If it does, that is a relatively light frameset.

    Thanks guys for the advise, Blown Civic the Arc is a hardtail so no rear shock to worry about , I weighed the frame and on my scales it was hovering between 1.6 and 1.7 Kg with the seat post clamp fitted.
    I can cut my seat post down, I didn't realise how long it was going to be I could loose 3" off still leaving more than 4 in the frame, do you just take a hack saw to it ??
    I will try and fit my Stans this week end.

    Sorry,

    Confused the ARC with the ASR.
