Looking forward to seeing the Genius build as I'm considering getting one early next year.
Seems to be a great bike, and living in Switzerland you definitely should have the right terrain for a bike like that!

Spamming away with some more updates.

The Fox 32SC for the Scale is also finished for the moment, with a cartridge and carbon axle from ShiftUp and volume spacer/air valve cap from Hopp. Will drop around 55g when cutting the steerer so final weight will be around 1250g. A bit heavier than I had hoped for but still a quite respectable weight, especially since it's a "regular" chassis/fork from one of the big brands.

Cartridge from ND Tuned is lighter : 70-80g

What matchmaker do you use with Piccola brake and Acros shifter ?

Saves about 6g, but getting rid of the blue anodizing makes it worth about 60g if you ask me. :wink:
What blue anodizing parts do you speak ?

I had an eye on the ND Tuned as well, but I didn't like the damping concept really and wanted something with a regular lock-out. Not bashing it, because I haven't tried it, but for me the Shift-Up variant felt like a better choice even if it's a bit heavier.

As for the matchmaker I just use a regular Trickstuff one for Sram interface.

And I just meant the original blue anodized Fox air-cap and lock-out lever that the Hopp parts replace!

In 2018, a carbon steerer 70 grams lighter for FOX 32 will be available at ND Tuned.

there also seems to be a new hydraulic NDTuned cartridge for the 32sc coming. Fork still at 1200g.

So, a little update!

First of all, this weekend (23-25 March) I'll be at the Berliner Fahrradschau with both the Scale and the Spark. You'll find both me and the bikes at the Schmolke Carbon booth, so please come say hi and have a look if you're going!

Secondly, I actually run tubes often so had to get a pair of these to try now that they're finally available. Tubolito S-Tubo 29", mine came in at 46g and 48g. Crazy light, when inflated it looked like I could make a balloon animal out of them haha.

Do they do road versions? Is there a link to these anywhere? EDIT - found them! http://www.tubolito.com/en/

Also here is a link here to the bikerumor.com article on your tweo bikes https://www.bikerumor.com/2018/03/27/bf ... ark-scale/

Fantastic builds! You've opened a whole new, unfortunately expensive can of worms for me.

I've seen on Insta that you've started your Genius project - are you going to be updating here as well? I appreciate your sharing your process and it seems like you go into more detail here than on Instagram (naturally). So, I guess what I'm asking is, can you do more work for our entertainment?

Still tons of snow here so I can't test them yet, and haven't read much about this new version, but the regular ones seems to be working good for people. So fingers crossed.

Thanks man! And I think I'm gonna answer that with "Sorry, not sorry" since it might be expensive but it also brings you a lot of joy haha. :beerchug:
Yeah I got a thread here for that one too, unfortunately I've been a bit slow on the updates but I'll try to keep it up to speed. Easier to answer any questions there too!
