Please re-post your picture and I would love to see how you did this. Must be a single speed with rigid fork and a lot of carbon.

There is a point where WW just becomes dumb and I think that crossed that line a while ago. It barely look rideable let alone functional as a mountain bike.

I think this is amazing for pushing the boundaries of what is possible. I think only the saddle is a bit crazy and would have gone a little bigger but then again my butt is probably bigger so that is just me. WELL DONE!

With the right accoutrements, I think we would've been more impressed at 12 lbs.

4850grams with accessories and brakes fully bled .

Just this once (and never again) I bled the brakes and used new brake fluid just to get the full on weight . Also adding to this is the bottle cage, the full top cap, bolt and plug and bar both plugs . Why the additional weight of the accessories ?!!! Well it's only an additional 18 grams and the bike looks far more impressive with that weight knowing it has a bottle cage, mounts, plugs and top cap rather than 'cheating' and removing all plugs and having no accessories . Also the hard work that went into those additional parts cannot go unnoticed .

Too much work involved with this bike . Practically all parts (including frame) have been heavily modified . Just a few pics but pretty much everything this bike is made up of is the lightest in the world (and fully functional) and you cannot get any lighter (except the Fairwheels bike but that is a road bike) .
