hi there,

I am quite new here.
here is one of my bikes.

Frame: Flash Hi Mod 2011 – Taglia M
Fork: Lefty XLR 100 Carbon 2011 – Xloc
Stem: Extralite Ultrastem OC 100mm: Cannondale SI SL, BB30 131mm, XX 26/39 + Spider XX + spessore in alluminio :no:
Catena: Sram PG 1090 10 speed
Mavic SLR 2010 for Lefty 1520gr
Kenda Karma 120tpi 2.0 + Stans Notubes
Tune DC17
Crank Brothers 4ti
Bar: Mcfk 600mm NBE
Seatpost: Mcfk 27.2*400mm
seatclamp: Mcfk 30mm
MCFK Steerer Tube
Tune Speedneedle Alcantara
Formula R1 + kit Carbonio + Matchmkaers
160/140 Formula mini mono / X2 Race Edition
Triggers XX
FD: Sram XX S3 29/36 BP
RD: Sram XX Long Cage
Sram XX 11/36
Bottlecage: New Ultiamate
bar grips: Extralite

weight as is: 7.770gr

The objective was to make a reliable bike that I could use in all conditions.
This is the only MTB I own so it has to fit all conditions, I use it normally 2 times a week and one more ride on the road bike.

You would say the wheels are not matching the rest of the bike - is something that I hear a lot - but i really like this wheels in terms of stiffness therefore never changed them.
the wheels weight 1520grso it would be really easy to put bikes weight under 7,400gr.

meanwhile I also bought my first road bike (TArmac) therefore the small funds available have now to be split between the two bikes.

cheers and hope you like it.

Agreed, this one is HOT!

Do you feel any difference in flex with this seatpost instead of the Cannondale one?

A set of light wheels with green accents would seal the deal. :-)
Ride it like you stole it

Are you using an aftermarket carbon steerer tube to be able to use the 1 1/8" stem?

Looks like a Mattias Hellore (Experimental Prototype) steerer!
