It is very stiff and absolutely flies. When I ride with the XX forks it is very compliant too.

Skewers: 15mm Maxle and 10mm RWS through bolt
Brakes: Hope Race X2 Evo
Cranks: Cannondale Hollowgram PF30
Spider: XX Modified chainline
Rings: Rotor Q rings 25, 38
Pedals: Egg Beater 11
Seat post: Extralite
Bars: Crank Bros Cobalt 11
Grips: ESI Chunky
Shifters: were X0 modified, now XX Grip shift
Fr Mech: XX
Rear Mech: XX
Cable housing: Jagwire
Saddle: Specialized Romin
Bottle Cage: Cannondale Imix
There are still a few things to do. I have a Ti spiderless single chainring to try, Scrub brake rotors, Maxis tyres, a toupe saddle, some modified skewers, lighter pedals, carbon seat clamp, lightweight expander nut, alloy valves, Ceramic BB and headset bearings, shorter steerer and remove spacer etc. I think that 16.00 Lbs is achievable and still be able to hammer it with confidence.
I also have the Rock shox XX fork for it in Niner green, these are being modified to accept the specialized brain damper.
Comments and advise are welcome
Now the XX shifter is a real revalation, absolutely perfect!
Adaptable for your own choice of grips.
No miss shifts
Easy cable change
Use shimano or Sram rear mech.
On the down side (very minor bugs)
Not much scope for tuning.
No gear position indicator.
No intermediate notches on 2x front shift.
Still better than anything else I have tried.
I bought some standard 135mm Roval end caps that gave me a 137mm spacing as the spindle is also 2mm wider than a standard hub.
In order to get the required 135mm spacing I machined 1mm from the drive side end cap and 1mm from a raised portion of the replaceable mech hanger.
I thought that I would need to re-dish the wheel but this was not necessary (it is probable 0.5mm off centre)
In all honesty it would have fitted with no problem without machining the end cap or hanger at all!
