Airborne frame, Morati fork, Sweet cranks/b.b., Nokon all around, my twisty wheels. Don't know the weight, real supple ride though.

I don´t know what 16 pounds is in terms og kilograms, but with my racewheels (Tune, Sapim CX-Ray and , the soon to come light weight saddle, Pauls brakes, FRM World Cup stem and CB Eggbeaters I expect it to go down from it´s 7.8 kg´s to 7.4-7.5 kg

Lots of "weightweenie-work" to be done but finished at last - my first test ride is tomorrow!

There are pictures of better quality here http://www.rudemtb.dk/hotwheels.asp?fan ... heeltype=7

As for the fork, it´s a plain Kocmo Titanium fork which has been prepared by Moots to the exact same finish as the frame. I can tell you, the fork works very, very good. I´m quite impressed by it´s komfort and rigidity.

Regards

Mr. Moots, those are some big chain rings for a cross bike!

I don't know what kind of terrain you ride in but I did my first training ride (meaning no expirence what so ever today) and had almost no problems pushing 38/48 in the front and 12-27 in the rear. Long clims (in Denmark) could be climed - maybe a 36 would have made it a little bit easier to spin the bike up the hill but if not ridden like a mountainbike Martin's gearing will be fine in danish conditions!

Big chainrings? We are talking 48/34 up front! If anything, the rings on the cassette are to small. 12-25 would be preferable compared to 11-23.
