Looking forward to seeing the Genius build as I'm considering getting one early next year.
Seems to be a great bike, and living in Switzerland you definitely should have the right terrain for a bike like that!

Spamming away with some more updates.

The Fox 32SC for the Scale is also finished for the moment, with a cartridge and carbon axle from ShiftUp and volume spacer/air valve cap from Hopp. Will drop around 55g when cutting the steerer so final weight will be around 1250g. A bit heavier than I had hoped for but still a quite respectable weight, especially since it's a "regular" chassis/fork from one of the big brands.

Cartridge from ND Tuned is lighter : 70-80g

What matchmaker do you use with Piccola brake and Acros shifter ?

Saves about 6g, but getting rid of the blue anodizing makes it worth about 60g if you ask me. :wink:
What blue anodizing parts do you speak ?

I had an eye on the ND Tuned as well, but I didn't like the damping concept really and wanted something with a regular lock-out. Not bashing it, because I haven't tried it, but for me the Shift-Up variant felt like a better choice even if it's a bit heavier.

As for the matchmaker I just use a regular Trickstuff one for Sram interface.

And I just meant the original blue anodized Fox air-cap and lock-out lever that the Hopp parts replace!

In 2018, a carbon steerer 70 grams lighter for FOX 32 will be available at ND Tuned.

there also seems to be a new hydraulic NDTuned cartridge for the 32sc coming. Fork still at 1200g.
