Long time lurker first time presenting my XC race build in process. I was hoping for reasonably light, very durable and fun. I wanted steel. Project as of right now. Currently 9.49kg
Ritchey P-650b 2058g

Sweet! Any chance to get a glossy white Ritchey kit on it? With white forks and maybe even rims this would be a total stunner.

Really liking the way Ritchey gets back to building frames. Swiss Cross, P650, Road Logic, all very covetable chunks of iron.

Looks awesome. My major recommendations would be maxxis IKON 2.2's for tires, stans crests, and some thomson and king bits.

A lot of the bits I have I will update as they go on.

Next SL w/ wolf tooth 557g

It needed longer bolts for better purchase between the threaded chain ring and crank.

I have always wanted to try a Terralogic fork regardless of the weight. I see what I think when the snow goes away.

FSA Impact Headset with Angular Contact bearings as bonus.

Hi, sorry to bring up a really old thread bit I'm interested in building a lightweight p-650b and was wondering on the build of this one. Couldn't contact drider but maybe they'll see this?

I'm not able to private message anyone at the moment but thanks for the response. I'm wondering about the crankset, wheels and forks. And which brakes did you use ? The frame isn't exactly lightweight but 9.4kg is pretty good for a total build.
