The bars feels really stiff but man it's wide compared to what I'm used to - first ride tomorrow. Excited how it feels in the woods and it's possible to ride between the trees :-P

It's coming together nicely :)

I'm sure you'll like the wide bars, I really liked going from 600 mm to 700 mm.

When I first looked at the picture I thought the left door handle was a golden bar end :D

First ride with the 700 mm bars - feels really wide and think my back needs to getting used to the lower position but it looks great :-)

I suggest you resist the temptation to cut down your bars to a narrower width, if that ever happens. You will get used to the wide bars and it's so much better at high speed.

Also thinking about a light wheelset!

Getting closer to sub 8 kg :-P

Image

The wheelset is 1457 grams. Got a pair of Mack Superlight disc hubs and going to build a light carbon wheelset. Hopefully around 1250 grams and with tubeless conversion maybe another 150 grams from the latex innertubes that I'm using now. And if I decide to go with 1x10 speed on this bike it will be around 7.6 kg.
