Thought I would share some pictures and specs from my brother's new titanium 24" race bike. Weighs in at 16lbs 13oz - with the current wire bead 2.1" small block 8 tires. Frame was built by a company in Asia called Go-Riding, one of the nicest titanium frames I've seen! Running the 36T Wolf-Tooth No-drop ring in the front, with XTR 11-36 cassette + Hopes 40T expander ring. Brakes are the Bengal Helix 7b, great lever adjustment for kids, and decent weight. Stan's No-Tubes 24" Crest rims with Industry 9 hubs/spokes. Full list of specs below:

- 24" Titanium Helix Frame - 1392 Grams
- 24" Titanium Fork - 537 Grams
- I9/Stans Wheelset - 1270 Grams
- Bengal Rear Brake - 260 Grams
- Bengal Front Brake - 245 Grams
- Quaxar 160mm Rotors - 68 Grams (each)
- Kenda 24x2.1 Wire Bead - 580 Grams (Approx. each)
- Seatpost KCNC TI Pro Lite - 135 Grams (cut)
- Saddle Tioga D-Spyder - 155 Grams
- Origin 8 Crankset,w/ machined arms - 455 (arms only)
- Eggbeater 11ti Pedals - 167 Grams
- Circus Monkey Scandium Bar - 105 Grams - (cut to 500mm)
- XTR Shifter/Cassette/Derailleur
- Loaded 70mm Stem - 117 Grams

- 16lbs 13oz Total Weight

Going to be getting a different set of tires that will save about 8-10oz, also getting a set of chain-ring bolts to replace the missing ones...

So the Notubes rims are standard? I wonder if they were developed for this purpose, or with something else in mind (BMX or trials use maybe). No matter what, it's a cool bike :)

Edit: Why not list the total weight in kgs? :)

I'm not sure what they are made for exactly...but they are super light, and perfect for kids.

Weight in kilograms is 7.6 Kgs.

Hi there. Could you share the contact information for the frame maker in Asia? I want to get my two boys on some lightweight 24" wheel mountain bikes this year. It's crazy that some of the bikes are over half the weight of my boys.
Thanks.

Not really much saving in the frame (its only about 1/2Kg lighter than a vaguely decent aluminium frame) compared to the rest of the parts, so unless you are speccing those to a high level already the money is better spent on those parts.
