A friend of mine is in the process of building a sub-7kg fully using a Tomac Carbide SL and 5Rot shifting... Then both your bikes will be heavy!!! :lol:

Guys Guys Guys - Pictures or it did not happen. You know the rules.

Jaker is the real deal so I know he is on the up and up.

Everyone else post your own bike. I know Jaker so can I say my friends bike is lighter than yours. Come on!

hehe Mads, I think I know who you mean... ;) Isn't there a way of expressing this better to level out the playing field? I propose a formula of weight per cm/inch travel. Bonus points for hydrolic braking shifting over cable-actuated (e.g. disc over V-brakes). :beerchug:

I really like all your Scott's and Yeti's btw. I think it's amazing how a rideable mountainbike with suspension can weigh so little these days. :D

To mythical

Sorry if I didn't express clearly that my post was just a joke. I'm sure there's alot of lighter bikes than mine - if I could use alot of money on bikes I would probably have another and lighter setup :-)

No worries, Mads. I'm pretty sure you meant this bike which, if you ask me, looks almost like a road bike with slightly fatter tires... I know it wouldn't really hold up were I to do some serious mountainbiking with it. :roll: It's very nice looking though! :D

Image

Before turning road cyclist/triathlete, I've been into mountainbiking since '93 and have broken too many parts including carbon seats, suspension forks, heavy CrMo BB axles and forged Shimano XT cranksets even. :twisted:

Nice Scale! I'm wondering how the Clavicula crank holds up. That Scale RC frame is really nice.

Clavicula crank are holding up fine - with the outer ring mounted on the inside-position it has a great chainline.

Just noticed that the frontcap of the Rotor stem is cracked :-(

A bit old but changed from Jagwire L3 housing to Fasi Turbo Plus housing - saved about 40 grams from this upgrade only :-) complete weight for 2 steel cables and full housing for shiftning is 54 grams.
