kmc x10 sl and specialités ta 44t ring (just replaced by an extralite octaramp 44)
frm levers and extralite 96gr. handlebar
flying snake and tune housings:
8.250gr. complete bike with racing ralph weighed on a fishing scale without polar, bottle cage and barends:
waiting for new ultimate 27.2 seatpost and use 20gr shim.
I really like the seat and post, but isn't the crankset a bit ugly? The middel and small rings need to be replaced, no?
I've heard both good and bad experience of alu bolts to fitt bar to stem, with 2 and 4 bolt fitting.
I know it's no problems with stem to fork fitting.
That is because if it did fail it wouldn't be a pretty ending.
Just because sauser uses alu bolts doesnt make it a sensible thing. Maybe he gets new bolts every race which would most likley avoid fatigue to the bolts.
I will ride a XTC 0 (the -05 version with hybrid frame) Any suggestions how to shed some pounds from it without breaking the bank??
I will change tires to RR with Stan's. How about Giant's own parts, bars, stems etc? They're all carbon on my bike, maybe should i change saddle?

This is just my opinion, only a suggestion. For sure everybody has their own. I see those rocket shifters usually on lower grade bikes, that's why they have somewhat low grade image in my mind. Thus, I would paint them
New seatpost and tunning the fork will be the next upgrades.
I was thinking to get a size S but maybe that is just to small.
I am 177cm and my inner legs are 81cm.
Is your bike a size M and how long are you?
