Its time for a update :D its a hole year since last time.
2010 i spent on a Scale RC frame with a XX Sid, repainted saddlepost in white, sram XX gears and brakes. Wheels where Dt240:s with olympic rims and Dt Revulution spokes.
It was a heck of fast bike and took me to a silver medal in H30 Swedish Championship.
Image

Now its a new year and of course a new bike and new goals for my riding :P
Scale RC 2011
Rock Shox Sid Race
Sram XX
Wheels same as last year.
Conti X-king
SLR Saddle etc¨
8,63 kg

Did you choose to move from the grip shifters or just because they don't make a 10 speed grip shifter?

If it was possible i would go for gripshifts but the XX trigger i not a bad choice. Very exact gearshiftings and felling.
And it didnt take long to get used to them even after 10years with Grip shift :D

Great thread! It reminds me of my Scale Ltd which I've had since 2006. At the time I thought I wouldn't want to change anything on it, yet over the years I have changed almost evything on it.

In the picture above have you blurred the cats face to protect it's identity? :)

yes she is a little bit shy :roll:

I have ridden on scotts carbon frames since 2005 that bike i sold to man in my town and he is still riding it :D
Over the years there has been some improvements but the first one was damn god!
As you say bighead its worth building on them.
Iam sadly a little spoiled to work in at cycleshop so i have ridden new models every year. But only limited once. I think it was 2007 now they are to expensive :cry:

great bike! How did you find the x-king vs race kings? IN particular rolling? I am running the x-kings now but am wondering about going back to race kings at the rear.

I ridden the "black" today with right tirepressure (race kings) it feels realy god. Tomorrow its time for some more training with my buddy.
I ll try to go with X king 2.4 if nationals will be mudrace the race kings sucks big time.

Here is a picture on the spark. It feels slow now when i have ridden the "black" fore some days :cry:
But when it comes to more tecnical courses with roots and stones it rocks :thumbup:

The "black" is uppgraded with new lighter wheels, american classic hubs, pilar aerospokes and innolite tubular. Its a autumntest so a couple of tufo xc3 will do.
Almost 0,5kg lighter with tires then old wheels:)
Now the bike weights 7,75kg and feels superfast.
Pics will come

What are your first thoughts about Innolite Tubular rims? Did you get a good price on them, hence not going with say AX-lightness or similar?

Chris.
