Looks just how a zaskar should. 25 is probably upper end weight wise but yours looks like it will take as much abuse as you could throw at it.

You'd easily lose weight in the saddle I guess, and perhaps the wheels (dont know what they are). But 25lb isnt a bad weight with a bit of bounce. REckon mine weighs about the same.

517 should be fairly light. I'm putting D521's on mine! They are heavy!

Sids would be lighter no doubt, they dont really weigh much at all.

I've got Z2s en route, just trying to make it more practical. They are great frames.

SID are a good ride no doubt but compared to your forks. SL by the looks of it they will be SO flexy. Not so good to use on a bike like that unless you way nothing.

Whole thing looks amazing though. :)
