It's now got a Middleburn Duo chain-set of it's own; it didn't like sharing with the KK :roll:

Also got some Thomson kit: A stem and seat-post ;)

A few (more!) pics :? .....

I managed to get my 2007 Yeti 575 down to 26.5 lb.

Here are some lightweight products I discovered:

26x2.3 Conti Speed King Supersonics. 430g actual

Answer Pro Taper 660 XC Carbon Flat Bar 130g actual (680mm width)

Easton EA90 90mm stem 130g actual.

The Notubes rims will go tubeless really well with the Supersonics. I made my own rim strip from Maxxis Superlight 20" tubes - they weigh 30g each.

I'll post the build when I've finished, just need a decent saddle, my SLR snapped!

Beautiful frame!!
I like your experimenting with components.
Now with all the black components maybethat white fork stands out too much for me. even despite the logo. Dont know, maybe in the real its different..

Latest Update :)

It now has Sram X0 rear mech and twist-shifters. Avid Ultimate Black Ops brakes have been added, the Thomson stem has been swapped for a Syntace one and I thought I'd give a Yeti saddle a go :)

Also, the wheels are an Extralite set, weighing in at 1200g but I plan to replace these with a set of Mavic SLR with tubeless tyres :)

Cheers

Cracking build this, enjoyed reading the thread going through its changes. You do some great light-weight builds.

You don't fancy an XTC Composite frame do you? ;) :)
