Hi all, just bought the last Ventana 17" bushing Salty with CK headset. Weight with headset is 5.82, not extremely light but nice for a 4" frame.

Looking to build this bike around 23.5-24lbs as my race/trail bike. Money really isn't a issue but saving isn't a bad thing either.

This is want I'm thinking so far

Formula B4SL+
WTB laser Disc lite(Amerian Classic)/DT Swiss XR 4.1d/Sapim cx-ray
Use Alien 420mm post
FSA 0x120 stem
Easton .34 EC90 Monkeylite rise
Sram XO der/shifters
Eggbeaters Twin Ti.
XT frt. der.
Nokian NBX lite/light weight tubes for now

Thats pretty much it at this point. I haven't decided on a crankset as I hoping RF and others will launch their intergrated crankset/bb combo soon. Saddle I've always used older San Marco Bontrager ti but are getting harder to find, I love a short saddle.

Please let me know if I'm on the right track and please throw any ideas my way. Thanks.

looks like a pretty solid spec!
