I've seen a couple guys build Hei Hei Supremes in around 8937g (19.7lbs) so that is now my goal. As well as stay lighter than my buddies chinese carbon rigid. :D

I figure I'll swap out the bars, stem, grips, jockey wheels, find some lighter pedals and do some bolt tuning.

really cool project. If youre ever looking for an awesome XC tire with a little more traction than the maxx lights, go with the IKONs... ive got them in a 2.2, came in under 500g each and are the best all around xc tire Ive ever used.
