Location: West Yorkshire
2002 Specialized Enduro frame (Float R shock to save weight)
Rock Shox Psylo forks
XT
Hope C2 discs
Race Face cranks
Easton risers
Ritchey Stem
Radical seatpost
Hope Bulb rear hub, Marin front
Mavic X221 rims
IRC Notos tyres (going in the bin soon)
WTB saddle.

It's 27.5lbs. Is that a sort of :twisted:

But then there's my other bike

Marin Wolf Ridge frame
Rock Shox SID SL forks
LX (combined shifters/brake levers to save weight)
Marin stem
FSA seatpost
Ritchey flat bars (no bar ends)
LX v-brakes
Deore enon-disc hubs
Fir rims
IRC Mythos XC tyres
Specialized BG saddle (OOOWW!)

25.5lbs.

Any good? :D (it is a full susser), :? or is it a :evil: too?

Then there's my 35 lb rigid singlespeed.

DO you have SS on here?

Do not worry, my ride weighs 13.4 kg (29.8 lbs). GT i-Drive frame, Psylo SL fork, mixed SRAM drivetrain, XT cranks, Louise disc brakes, Ritchey components, Formula hubs and Sun DS1-XC rims. Wheels seem to be too light for my 92 kg, riding style and... lack of proper technique. They are soon to replaced by something stiffer and heavier, but I am not going to weep for some 300 g. And in couple of days my new, 9.5 kg road bike arrives :-)

A 35lb SS bike, sounds heavy to me for an SS build a bike without gears and no suspension fork.
Whats the spec on it?

Give a full list on the other bikes and maybe I can give you some cheap but useful weight savings.

A lot of great light weight products can be picked up cheap on ebay.
