Updates: Recieved my rigid carbon fork. 540g uncut in matte 3k (they sent wrong fork... I wanted UD), will need to cut it, so hopefully around 510-520 when cut to length. Also, the brakes worked so well I thought I'd might give Scrub a try. So I'm doing that, a couple of white workhorses (slightly used) on the way.
Rigid with maxxlites and the new rotors should be around 6.25kg including 1 Bontrager RXL bottle cage.
I'm in touch with a couple of people regarding a new road bike project. I'm dreaming of something Italian...
There was no roots or rocks on the trail, the rings have no marks from being hit and I know for sure I haven't knocked them into anything. They just bent under pressure.
The rings was Hellore 26T alu, and I don't want these again. Very soft and fragile. I accept a small weight penalty to get better performance, does anybody have any suggestions for a replacement?
26 or 27T chainring
Black or titanium color
Installed 27t FRM ring and also have Specialties TA as backup. These look solid and quality.
MSC Koncept Carbon Di2 - 6955g
Leichtkraft Team Carbon - 6868g.
Changed to a smaller frame. I did a 3hr race on the bike and actually came to the conclusion that I want it 1 size smaller. 1 Mail and 2 days later it was at the lbs. 10 points to liggero
Put on Sram XX cranks: 156q, 170mm, 42-28
Shimano XTR pedals. The eggbeaters are better om mud and in-out clicks, but the wider and larger platform of the XTR are both more confidenceinspiring and short bursts are more secure and stable than EB. EB are lighter, but XTR makes me faster. And after all, it is about winning races.
So thats -572g-168g+741g+308g = 310g gain - 7g lighter frame. Might do titanium spindle for the xtrs to reduce the damage..
I've played with the thought of getting tubulars, but I don't know which... I'm also thinking about biolog an Archtek/cx-ray/am classic wheelset. Hmm...
Edit: devincii, did the TA rings save weight over XX rings?
Devinci: 5-9 grams is not that much. What type of Quarq? I'm very pleased with my road version!

I´v sold around 1500 to 2000 rings until now, I think I know about 1-3% of them has failed due to design flaws or other causes.
So the track record is quite good.
