Love this build, well done getting it sub 10kg @rapsac. Looks to me like a very well considered buidl list with a dropper and proper tyres to boot. I'd happily race it without worrying about damaging anything. What do you think of the Piccola's? Have considered them as a bit of a bling upgrde on my XC race bike over the SRAM Level Ultimates Im currently running.

Thanks. I like the piccola’s a lot. Very well finished, no play at the the lever, very powerful and very good modulation (near Hope level). And hose shortening is easy too. The bleed process is slightly more complicated due to the tiny pump, but nothing too difficult if you follow the manual.

Some small updates, mostly for local use:

SID SL ultimate 100mm, unshortened (for the approx 110g lighter and all black look vs the SC32)
Image

Extralite Blacklock for SID SL (11g lighter than Maxle)
Image

Extralite Ultrastar 4
Image

Carbon-Ti adapters for easy wheel installation on the SID
Image

XTR Meti pedals
Image

Extralite Ultrapulleys (12g lighter than original XX1 AXS pulleys)
Image

Combined with the Bike Ahead seatpost the M4SL should be around 9,65kg.
Vacation mode (with dropper and some heavier tires) would be around 10kg

why didn't you buy the original end caps that fits the Sid fork?

As far as I know, no other version exists. Those shown above are original caps from Carbon-Ti. They do have a conversion kit with a different axle for the RS predictive steering standard. This may fit both my front hub and the fork, but even if so, it requires re-dishing the wheel - which I have no interest in since I prefer easy exchange of wheels between bikes.

I don't know why, but in my head I thought you had dt Swiss hubs, sorry for the mix up.

No probs, thanks for looking and the suggestion - even if not applicable for my hubs in this case.

Latest update with Yep Podio and Sigeyi power meter, stable now. Picture with Extralite MDN grips (fell for them once again…) but quickly replaced with trusty Esi Racers edge.
