Godzuki26 thinks there needs to be a Weightweenie Scott Scale 900 SL build in the USA. So here we go!
Who are you (no off-topic talk please)

@Taf - the Carbonfan rims have been excellent. Even after sanding all the clear coat off to save some grams, the rims have held up with no issues. Carbonfan has excellent communication and customer service and I highly recommend them. Carbonfan rim + Berd spokes =
@taf - I initiated contact with Arthur through the message function on their website. He responded to my message the following day with the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. From there, we exchanged many emails where he updated me with pictures of the rims and the weights. He also offered me a discount if I write a review for their product. He even made a second rim for me after he sent me a pic of one that was a little heavier than what I was asking for. Very cool dude.
@thedanplasse - thanks the bike is doing well. After swapping the tires and going tubeless the bike has been maintenance free with zero flats. With the bullshit Maxxis Maxxlite tires and the Tubolito tubes, I was flatting on every other ride it seemed. I need to post weights with the Schwalbe Rocket Rons. Honestly, I haven't weighed the bike since I started riding it and replacing parts. I also need to post a build list which I haven't done yet. I decided not to use a bike computer for mountain biking so I do not know how many miles I put on this thing. I don't do epic all day rides like I did on road a few years ago. All I do now with this bike is put on head phones and ride no more than 2 hours at a time to relieve stress from work. I'm not competitive anymore and I stopped participating in group rides because I just want to meditate and zone out. It's kind of hard to do this because there are so many people around me but that comes with living in Orange County.
A quick side by side view of the Extralite Ultratop dust cap that was replaced by the Jobvisser cap. I am certain that replacing aluminum parts with a carbon part will make my cockpit look nicer. The UD dustcap will be going on my Scott 900 SL.
