i used ashima ultralight rotors with my avid xx brakes. They tend to make noise and they are rubbing/vibrating. So i changed back to stock xx rotors. But in the future i will change to very light hope rotors which seem to be as well as stock rotors.

That's a drop dead sexy bike. It looks fast as hell, I bet it flies through the woods. How do you like the cranks? Stiff enough?

Comment on the innolites; from what I've read they provide less braking power than most rotors. But hey, what can you expect from a 50 gm rotor? I would rather go with some ashimas or something like that.

How about a Extralite rear if you don't want the tune prince/princess set?

wow sick looking bike.

I like how slick the cockpit looks with the enve bars and ESI grips.

Might get similar grips myself, wich I could afford enve post/bar/stem too

I find S-Works cranks stiff enough. Mayde XTR is stiffer but i´m 65 kg so not much weight to really push the cranks. Rotors are something that i need to think about. I think i could live with lesser braking power from Innolites but i don´t know if they are worth the price. I might go with Avids new HSX rotors in red.

Also for some reason my Syntace 109 stem came with steel bolts. Now that´s sorted.

XX is great for shifting. Brakes needs some adjustment and bleeding once a year but nothing major. Brakes are plenty powerful for my riding.
