I've got one of those with the stock rigid fork. Looks like the same size, too--If I had a decent scale I'd go down to the basement and weigh it.

That's very unrealistic.
- 64 spokes at 118 gr ?
- CS-M950 at 169 g ?
- A 186 gr chain ?
Could have saved himself another 90 gr on saddle and grips.
Don't think he used proper scales.
Here's a list of some extremists http://weightweenies.starbike.com/artic ... ry=htbikes

Exactly, only way to shave 400g off RC35 is swap the legs for RC30 rigids :lol:

I can't wait til I start to convert the fork from the rubber bushings suspension to the air cartridge system. This will definitely increase the amount of travel that I don't have now. The Pace fork that I use now maybe has 3" of travel.


I'm pretty sure when i had the old pace forks like his like his they had 2" or so of travel.
