Been lurking for quite a while.

This is my first real WW build, local LBS weighs it at 23 lbs even :mrgreen: . I dont have a scale yet, but I do know it has been my favorite bike I have ever owned. There are some really nice builds on this forum that mine is no where close to, but its mine. :thumbup:

Nice bike! I see areas where you can loose more weight when the time comes...but until then ride the heck out of it!!

:welcome: Welcome to the forum. You have an excellent platform for your addiction. A scale is almost a requirement here. :wink:

The Barracuda? Yes I do....but its been built up for my wife....lots of pink parts... :oops: Full XT though, Rock Shox Pyslos, FSA Carbon K Force bars....a tad bit heavy. :lol: Its a 95, so it first started life in Durango Colorado by Frank the welder Wadelton from Yeti :D I paid a hundred bucks for it this year.

The Schwinns are pretty cool, they are for my sons....definatley not WW material, but they love them.

I will get a scale.....at some point, latley I've been spendin' every extra cent on diapers :shock: .....and then Bike Parts :lol:

I know the Fisher could loose some weight....I figured that I could drop a little over a pound with just with a new seat collar, brakes & levers, a new cassette & loose the computer.
Heres the math...
Gary Fisher OEM Seat collar 31g / KCNC seat collar 11.5g
XTR Brakes 396g / Aest Brakes 250g
XTR Levers 167g / Aest Levers 57g
619 Cassette 419g / Sram PG990 271g
Cateye 46g
Thats a difference of 469.5g :mrgreen: and that would only cost me $290.

Can you give a ride report on the AEST brakes and levers----I've heard various negative and positives----just wonder if you are satisfied with the change.

Nice bike and THANKS

I had XTR's on prior, but was trying to loose a little weight and I really wanted a bike void of anything Shimano (not because I don't like Shimano....Just a stupid theme thing). At first I had a real hard time getting them set up. The return spring on the levers is pretty much non existent, so you have to have the spring on the arms set up perfect or the levers wont return to their outward position. Also, I found that on my rear brake post, the metal tip that fits into the hole was about a 16th of an inch off, so I played hell trying to fit them onto my bike. I finally took them to a Mechanic friend and had him set them up, then I fussed with them for a few more rides and now I Love them. I ended up replacing the fixing bolt on the pads as well as the boss and boss bolt with Gold Titanium bolts. The best thing about them besides the weight, is that they don't have any flex, and they are infinitely adjustable. I was going to buy the KCNC ones, but a friend told me that these were a better brake. I looked at the Extralite Ultra Brake Levers Kit which is 248g for the entire set, but is also $600. These Aest Brakes and levers were $190 on eBay and total weight is 316g.

Fun build but how narrow are the handle bars? I would highly recommend Avid Arch Supreme brakes if you can find them.

640mm....I have had Arch Supremes, XTR's....I really Like Avid Black Ops, with Avid ultimate levers and was bidding on a set but lost. Found these Aest...66 grams for the levers and 250 grams for the brakes. I got Juicy Carbons on my Sons Ventana El Chumuco, & I like the Aest just as much if not better. They are great brakes, better than the KCNC's as well and hundreds less than than the Extralites :thumbup:

You could lose a TON of weight by going to a 1X9 setup... but if you're in Denver I presume you have mountains to climb. Aside from that your seatclamp could save you up to 20g and your grips up to 70g (lizard skin DSPs).

interesting build nonetheless.
