After almost a year mij Scott Expert racing is finally finished:

It's not a full WW bike, it's more a bike build to be abit more able to ride in tougher areas.
But still with WW in mind.





My new specs:
Frame: Scott Expert Racing size L
Forks: Rock Shox Reba World Cup
Headset: Chris king Notreadset with Ti Crown Race
Stem: Ritchey WCS Ti
handlebar: Token Carbon 56cm
seatpost: Thomson Elite
Saddle: Selle Italia SLR
Brakes: Magura Marta SL (Extralite alu + Ti tuning)
Shifters: Shimano Deore XT M760
Cables: Shimano black outer with XTR teflon coated inner cables)
Crankset: Shimano Deore XT M760 (Extralite bladboutjes)
Pedals: Shimano M540
front Der: Shimano Deore XT M752
rear Der: Shimano Deore XT M760 GS
Chain: KMC X9 SL gold
Cassette: SRAM PG990 red spider 11-32
Hubs: DT swiss 240 S disc
Rims: American Classic 350 Disc
Spokes: Sapim Laser with red alloy nippels
ribbon: Continental Superlite
Tyres: Continental Twister Supersonic
Tubes: Michelin Latex
QR's: Tune AC 16/17 Rood

I used Red alloy bolts everywhere I could, I used Ti bolts for the Seatpost, the Seatpost clamp, Rotors , Stem and the bolt for the headset (still had a Ti left).

I used some parts I got left from my Pro Racing, like the Cassette and Chain, seatpost and seatpost clamp.

The total weight is 9.55 Kg wich isn't bad I think.

Well what do you think of it?

btw I'll try to get some better pics at daylight.

Looks good Sniperwork!

I only dislike the XT crank.

Did you sold your Scott pro racing frame?

No, I still got the Pro Racing, still with the same setup, this is just "on the side"

The full XT setup (exept brakes) is done cause it is relatively cheap, and the cranks are pretty stiff and the light grey metallic fits the brakes perfectly and it also looks pretty nice on the frame. I did not want to spend 200 euro + on a crankset. and because the XT is just over 100 E it was good enough for me.

Maybe I put some other chainrings on them later on.
