At present the bike weights 17.6lbs equiped with a cro-mo seat post and rolls saddle, and very old xt 7 speed, mavic silver style wheels.
I recon with a little work-- chainset , B.B, new post, saddle, bars etc. 17lb is acheivable. It has an old style headset with ballistic carbon 800 forks. The hs22 hydraulic brakes weigh a fair amount to.
I will sort out a few pic's over the e-mail if you want a look.. When completed I will display in the MTB section,,,, A contender has arrived!!
Any advice on products to purchase to reduce the weight.. ????
I thougt WTB stealth pedals, Avid Ti or better brakes, No idea on levers,
FSA carbon cranket + Ti FSA b.b..
This lot should make it lighter without me having to take out a second mortgage to pay for it all..
Mega expensive stuff seem serious money for 10-20g savings ?
