My name is Mattias Hellöre, lives in central of sweden, in a "state" called Dalarna, a small village named Insjön.
In the early nineties I was a junior elite MTB XCer, I did came up quite well but I stopped my career abruptly when I hurt my knee and I had several bikes.
For example in nineties a GT Zaskar LE with full XTR group and carbon stuff, paired with Judy SL, weighed in 9.5 KG, not too bad in this time.
One more Zaskar LE, one Cannondale CAAD3 and small other stuffs.
I got to study in mechanical engineering, working från 2003 as NC operator in a cog wheel firm called Kuggteknik AB, www.kuggteknik.se
My main project is my bastard Porsche 911, http://project911.luminasweden.com
, but sometimes I got enough of Porsche illness and needed to do something another, so I bought a tatty used GT STS DH frame (heavy!) and a Junior T to that.. http://www.sdr.org/kid/GTSTS1.jpg
I maybe changed my mind when I see this forum, you are at the extreme league , fiddling with grams..
I have machines and knowledge so why not me too?
Weightweenies! here I come.
