Hi everybody,

I've been reading this forum for some time and now it's time to show my first built.

Photo: Image

I got a Superfly Elite 2011 on eBay, size 21, the frame weights 1350 grams.
I'm 6 ft(1,83cm) tall with a 34"(86cm) inseam. A 19" frame it's a little small for me, and a 21" a little big, since I got a nice deal, I got the 21". I'm using a 90mm steam and a 0mm offset seatpost and I'm very comfortable riding.

Got most of the parts from starbike:

Wheelset: Tune king/kong, Notubes ZTR Crest and Sapim cx-ray
Suspension: Sid XX with G2 geo - 2012
Brakes, Triggers, derailers: XTR 2012
Crankset: XT (I didn't got the XTR because of the 40/38 radio, I prefer the 39/26 from XT)
Rotors: Ashima 160mm
Pedals: Eggbeater 3
Seatpost: Aerozine Ti
Steam: Ritchey WCS 2012
Handlebar: Ritchey Carbonlogic 660mm
Saddle: Bontrager Evoke
Cages: Bontrager RXL

This is my first HT, race, 29" bike. I've been riding a Trek Fuel Ex for the last 3 years
I'm going to use on XC races, I have one in 18 days, 100Km mostly on single tracks.

Total weight complete as pictured: 9,400 grams

Any upgrade suggestions? I'm thinking on changing the cables to powercordz, lighter front/rear swekers and Bontrager Evoke RXL Carbon saddle.

Sounds nice (hint, pics!)

Ti seatposts aren't usually that light, so ally or Carbon, I have the Bonty inform RXL saddle (167g actual).

Tried the 2013 S'fly elite recently on a short demo ride....very nice, frame is 849g (yes really) for a 17".

Hi!

There is a link with a photo on the begging of the post, is it working?

My Ti seatpost weighs 180g, it was hard to find a light 0mm offset seatpost where I live.

The new superfly is hot!

Link is there, but why not just embed?

Ok 180g is good! How are you finding the Aerozine, just reading some initial reviews, price is good if it's that light!

The fork may be worth upgrading. From what I've heard, the dust seals and bushing on that Sid are lacking at best, and all though it its light, I think there are better options out there.
