I would personally ditch those avid mech discs ASAP. I use to run those, but after needing to replace both rotors and pads and seeing how much it would cost, I just decided to pay a bit more and switch to 04 marta SL's. I can't fully describe in words how much better a good hydraulic system, especially the martas are than the avids. It may even be a bit lighter -- listed weights for the sl's are including the lever.

My "to be" single speed. I got a complete bike and repainted/polished the frame. Now it is going to be my single speed.

When I'm not riding my Pace, I'm out in the hills an Intense Spider XVP. Not spectacularly light at a little over 11kg, but able to handle the hard mountain trails in Wales.
I've got some 2.3" conti tyres on it at the mo, and it just eats rocks on the decents :D

If you really need to know whats on it and what it all weighs, then have a look here

Hi! I would say only two things: Adri, Tib and Furti your bikes are super! :thumbup: However I prefer Moots because is very very chic! 8) Try-Athlete, is your bike too big for you? The stem is short and much part of the seatpost is within the frame. However this is my bike...

Untill now i've been riding a Scott Team Issue with XTR,Sram X.0 and Fox stuff.
It was amazingly light when i first rode it(and still is!) but now it really doesn't amaze me anymore.Although i have never ever raced the bike i can tell you it is pretty stiff (much stiffer than a titanium Corratec i had before).
Now i will change it for a full suspension after Xmas(I have posted an add for this bike in ads section).I am a bit troubled as to what bike i will get but i guess i have some time to think about it.
