I was told the last part should get shipped today, I don't really dare to believe it until I actually get it delivered, but then it is quick work building it up and all that's left then is to take pics and videos. So I really really hope I can show the weight/bike by the end of next week.

Thanks a lot! Feels good to finally have it finished and as for the looks it turned out just how I had envisioned it. Sure everyone want their bike to perform well, but I'd say a lot of the fun in the building process is getting that image in your head on what theme you want for the bike and then trying to realize it.

It's a luxury having a good friend who works as a photographer, I'll pass on the kind words!

Phenomenal build. Attention to detail is second to none. You must be very satisfied to see it completed.

Thanks for your kind words guys!

Rear damper weight is included in the frame weight at 1641g, as well as all hardware (brake caliper bracket, carbon derailleur hanger/frame inserts and all rear shock hardware).
With the original aluminium hardware instead of Hopp Carbon hanger/inserts the frame kit is 1660,8g without paint, and fully original with paint it was 1752,2g.

Unfortunately I never weighed the rear shock by itself so I can't give you a number for that.

Truely amazed by these sexy builds, especially I am riding a Scale 2014 700 RC. To show my respect on this project, I would like to contribute a 3D printed gadget being designed for my Scale.

20 grams barend plug, giving you an extra compartment for tubeless plug kit (as shown in the pics), zipties, chain-links or a 14500 lithium battery, or whatever bits you could imagine. Neat, invisible and handy, well suited marathon or epic rides.

Thanks, and that's quite cool, keep up the good work! 3D printing for sure has many good applications.

I'm actually 99% sure it will be. And funny timing that you should ask that, just before reading your post I bumped the thread about this topic in the MTB section on the forum.
I still don't think I've seen a lighter 29" than Axels 6,845kg Scale, just a few lighter ones with Lauf or rigid forks.

seen the teaser on your IG, so can't wait to see it all now. Can't compete with your 29ner, as I am sticking with my old 26" abd 650b Scales for the moment.

Thanks for the interest guys!
The goal of sub6,6kg is crushed to say the least, the bike is stupid light!

Like I said on Instagram, video and weights of different versions coming tomorrow. :beerchug:
