Carbon 29er frame and carbon fork
Sram XX brake, shifters, cassette, derailleurs
Thomson Masterpiece layback post
Syntace F99 stem
Easton EC90 lowrise carbon bars
Ashima rotors with aluminum/ti bolts 3 each per wheel
FSA carbon cranks (32t spiderless chainring)
Eggbeater SS pedals.
Token light weight BB
Omni racer 9g seatpost clamp.
Fizik Arione CX saddle
ESI grips
Stan's Crest ZTR
Schwalbe Furious Fred Evolution 29er Tyre
Stan's sealant

The bike is actually built up. I am just sorting out the shifting on the rear. Need to install the right length of chain as the one currently on there is a shade small.

Right now the end result is 16.75 lbs. I am thinking that I should be able to get this down to under 16 lbs.

3 x Ti and 3 x Aluminum bolts. I have run this set up for years.

Here she is waiting for some tires, chain, shiifter cabling and for me to run the rear brake internally. Need to place my order on CRC for the items.

Very nice Bman.

FWIW The KCNC rotors in 160mm are about 10 grams lighter each. It all counts right?

Good to know as I can put this on another build I have which will help that build get down to 18 lbs.

Looking promising, those forks look massive!

What tyres you got planned for it?

Sorry my post was not the normal type and the information was scattered.

I already have the Schwalbe Furious Fred Evolution 29er Tyre which are working very well. I would like to go something lighter but I will kill these ones first then go lighter. I do love the feel of these on the trails I ride. I also have to admit I am really loving tubeless and will be going that on my other builds.

I need to button up a few things but since it is 20c here in Vancouver today, it is a great day to do a shackdown ride. Will try to snap a few pictures.

Here is a quick picture. Saddle not at right height. Just took it out of the work stand.

Will get a new post and saddle to drop some weight and need to strip the cranks to bare carbon.
