Hi guys! I've been lurking on this forum and using the listings page for years. Just getting around to creating a profile. Here's my bike.

20lb 2oz. I figure it would be pretty easy to get it below 19lb by throwing on some crests with IKONs, but I just love the cush of the Ardent 2.4 on the flows. I don't miss suspension at all so far.

I've been riding it for a few months, but this was the first time it's been clean enough to snap some pictures.


2011 Access XCL 29er
Carbonality 485AC Fork
Forte carbon riser bars
Ritchey WCS 100mm stem
EC70 seatpost (kinda heavy at 215g, looking for a replacement)
Elixir 5 brakes
X.7 gripshift
ESI chunky grips
X.7 short cage rear derailleur (X.0 on my last bike got shredded by a stick caught in cages :()
SRAM PG990 11-34 cassette
XTR M950 cranks
Ultegra BB
EB pedals
HBC 30t chainring
KMC X10SL chain
Helium Components 20g Chain Guide (my company)
ZTR Flows
Ardent 2.4

I should add that this was built for ~$1250 (not including the eggbeaters, saddle, and brakes, which were in the parts bin)

I spent a lot of time scouring ebay for bargains. I recently scored a set of crest rims to build up with circus monkey hubs for race day use. Should drop the weight a significant amount.

Nice but the title $1200 and then the post $1250 are misleading if you leave out the costof parts.


You could do any bike like that then...

You're right. I did just buy a few more parts for it so I'll update the parts list and price (including fair value for my parts bin stuff which might approach $125)
