New wheels in the house! I will post some new pics of the bike soon.

- Wheels: DT 240s disc hubs, NoTubes ZTR Alpine, Sapim CX-Ray and alu nipples. (1393g)

Not the lightest again but should hold up in training and racing. I will use the yellow tape and sealant to go tubeless with my 2.1 RoRo's on these. Maybe some day I will get a wheelset just for racing and leave these for training wheels. Something like DT 190s and Podium MMX.

- Ashima ARO-08 160mm rotors (85/87g)

I was not completely satisfied with my Alligator Windcutters so I decided to give these Ashimas a try.

New pictures of the bike! (Pictures & specs also updated to first post)

Weight is now 8300g. Still a little over 300g to go for the target weight but im not sure if I will make it with the parts I want to use. Next updates that i have been thinking are:

- Shimano DA 7900 braze-on front derailleur with a carbon clamp
- Extralite Ultrastar so i can use my Tune carbon headcap again. Now i have the standard Rock Shox expander which is a bit too heavy
- Matchmaker knuckle for my Pushloc lever
- Lighter grips (maybe Extralite or something)
- New bars (Innolite or Schmolke?)
- Syntace F109 stem with Ti bolts

I am so jealous right now. That is one of the sweetest MTB's I have ever seen. Just perfection in build quality, componentry and style. Fantastic job :thumbup: :beerchug:

Thanks! Im very pleased with the bike. For me it's close to perfection balancing in weight, durability and performance. Some updates will take place in the near future but I think it is allmost finished. And all this for a budget that was not astronomical.

Thanks guys.

I don't think I will take the stickers off the rims. Maybe I will try the different routing of the front brake hose.

About the chain rings. FSA cranks are a peace of crap because they have made some own type of standard there with the chain rings. It's a BCD 94mm 4-bolt system. Not much of choise for spare chain rings. I agree with black looking better and would prefer black chain rings. Any suggestions for new crankset? Sram XX is heavier, otherwise I would go for that. Clavicula DP would be my dream but way over my budget. I don't want to spend 1/4 from total value of the bike on a crankset. :noidea:

The crank bolt is not included to this weight.

The Clavicula DB is really a dream, but i was told that with that BCD the smalest ring you can get is 30, is it corect?

30 would be way to heave for our mountains...

Isn't the Clavicula DP 104mm BCD? So you could mount Extralite Octaramp Gara. I've seen this combo before but im not sure was it the Clavicula DP or the 3 ring version.

If the weight factor is the priority then I think you'll struggle to beat the FSA for the money. But if weight is not the deciding factor then there are plenty of compromises that would take care of reliability and aesthetic options.

Why not AX-Lightnessbar instead of Schmolke? Lighter.

Your can tune your crankset a bit without that aluthing between your bottom bracketcups, or use a plastic one from Shimano. Control Tech got the same BCD and golden chainrings if that´s an option.

Extralite grips are really nice. Then you can change your rear disc to a 140mm with an adapter from Eliflap. Change the brakecaliperbolts for some M6x20 and skip the spacers outside the caliper (works good without) and you've dropped some more weight.

Maybe I will buy the new X.0 or XX crankset next if I need new cranks and just take the weight penalty. I will just keep the FSA as long as they work.

I didn't know AX makes OS bars for MTB. Anyway Schmolke was a bit too expensive for me so just ordered an Innolite bar. Im happy with the 160/160mm rotors for now even though 140mm rear would save some weight. Good tip for the bolts and spacers, I will consider that.

I have some new parts coming soon but I think they will be the last updates for a while. I don't think im going to build to bike lighter anymore. Just concentrating on riding now. I want to buy a fully next but i will buy a complete new bike when the time comes. Untill that im going to ride this baby and learn more driving technique in difficult terrain.

If you want lighter chain rings, you could go for Spécialités TA MTB Compact chainring. Here are the ring configurations;
PCD 94: inner for double set-up 29, 30 // middle 32, 34, 36, 38, 40 // outer 42, 44, 46, 48, 50

But of course the color sucks, it's silver. This is good place to buy, there have really good collections of light weight bike parts.http://www.dulight.fr/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=91_63&products_id=280&osCsid=6a1d61e569b77a4e9b85fb7d8989f7b6
