What's inside the tire, a Tubolito or sealant? If first, how much pressure do you run, any flats yet? If second, was it difficult to seal? By the way, I've finally built up my 9kg FS I was talking earlier in the thread.
Tubolito rear, sealant up front. But seems like I got some bad luck with this tire, some LightSkins seem to work fine and other not. Been having one slow flat and one other occasion of loosing air over the 220km I have on the setup so far. Gonna give it one more try with some more sealant but got a race next week so might switch to a tube.
Looks nice!

So good! Makes me want to get a loan and make a copy of this bike for me!...but I would remove the 'No shortcuts' sticker just so I can have the lightest spark in the world... :D
Thanks a lot! Haha if I built it today I would've gone for Grigio Carbonio 265g rims, then I could've kept the sticker. ;)

Seriously, its a true impressive weight considering you are using the twinlock fully routed to both shock...and it's a fox shock!

Man, Nino shoul borrow this bike to race...you should be his new manager

Well, you can save that rim idea for your future build with the Unno Horn XC frame that I know you already have in mind :thumbup:

Any thought about the Rotor 1x13 system? It is also hydraulic shifting, loads of variation of cassettes, weighted at mid 300grams, exclusive to rotor rear hubs though.

It looks very nice for sure. What I really like is that the ergonomics looks on point as well as that you can adjust the number of shifts per stroke, and also a 13 speed 10-46T would pretty much be ideal for me.
But if I build a new bike I have my hopes on the wireless Sram system, just because I'd like the simplicity. It depends on what shifter model/setups they'll offer though and also I really don't like how big the Eagle derailleur looks. Maybe it'd be possible to run it with those new smaller Shimano XTR cassettes and perhaps a custom made cage to give it a slightly more compact look.

Sounds nice!

Some pics and a video from yesterday evening when I took the Spark to the bike park with flat pedals and a slammed seat. Good times! :lol:
