Oh well, I guess it must've been a mistake.

I figured your avatar is this:

Which comes from Shpongle, the group. (Which is related to Younger Brother, which is a bit more friendly to most listeners and I think better)... and of course the The Shpongle Mask, which has been used on the album covers for Shpongle...

But never mind, I guess you got chose that avatar image for some other reason.

Happy riding.

Great bike and build, the chainring is a nice touch.

How tall are you? The saddle looks high compared to the short stem.

They seemed to have put the Kebel on a diet, before finally abandoning it for next year. For shame, it has more character than the newer frames.

I'm 1.90 with an inseem at 90cm. It's a 100mm. Stem. If its longer, my back will hurt big time.
Thank you for the nice words.

I need help with saving som grams.
I know if you have the skills you can save a lot, but i don't. So for now i'm looking at what components i can switch out (for a reasonable price.) The bike is currently at 7,6 kg. So... If you guys would help. It would be great. So far the change have been.
I weigh 93kg. so please take that in to consideration.

- Planet X QR 44 gram.
- Tune bottlecage 8 gram.
- Cut the fork - didn't weigh the leftovers, sorry.
- CNC lightweight breaks 230 gram.
- Deda Zero stem with TI bolts. 125gram.

To come:
- Soul Kozak topcap 4 gram
- Sanding Red levers
- SMUD carbon saddle 72 gram?
