30mm wide carbon 29er wheelset from Light-Bicycle.com Novatec hubs and Pillar Aero spokes 1503g.
QR's were an additional 103g
Wheels arrived 2 days before they said they would. Box was packaged very well. Checked spoke tension and made sure they were round and true. Both front and rear each had one spoke that was a little under tensioned. But not so bad.

New 2.1 Maxxis Ignitors. I thought the rim width would spread out the mounted tires more, but they did not. Messured exactly 2.1.
I would have gone with something like 2.25 atleast.

I cant wait try these out.
XT 11-34 cassette and have some new Ashima rotors on the "weigh"....Overall will drop about 520g from my current setup.

IME; new mtb tires tend to spread out a little after a few rides.

That would be great if they do. I am running a rigid Scott scale and I had hoped for some beefier tires to soften the ride a bit.
I hope the bead loosens up a bit too. I had a difficult time getting tires on even with tire levers.

Veloflex Roubaix's might be the best tires I've ridden. Mine measured closer to 25 than 24, but I've got nothing but good words about them.

In Poland there's one and only shop which sells Veloflex tires and they are on sale now. Criterium 23 and both Roubaix 24 25 are for about 69$ according to today's exchange rate, excluding shipping of course.

Oldschool Easton EC90 handlebar.
I just like 26 mm bars, not sure why, think I like the more flat topsection.
With that I mean 26 to 24 instead of 31,8 to 24.

Most important, weight is 191 gram, will be less with the ugly red paint removed and a few cm cut of the ends :D
