A set of Avid ultimate v-brakes is on its way, i have them on my commuter and really love them.

Might even get a set of DT ceramic rims, and some ceramic specific koolstop pads. But i'm not sure if its really that big an upgrade.

I've been using SwissStop blue sky ceramic pads and Koolstop thinline ceramic pads and prefer the SwissStops. I'd also avoid the thinlines with Avid brakes as I think they are designed for thicker shoes/pads.

Impressive weight by the way. Where do you think you are saving the most? I have a similarly specced bike in terms of Ti frame, fork and drivetrain and its a bit above 21lbs.

i made some changes that might not be on the light side but makes the bike more pleasant to ride!

I swapped the seat post for a thomson and the saddle for a flite TI, the stem was changed to a thomson 90mm 5° and a titanium high riser it makes the feel more solid, i newer really got comfy whit the carbon bars - i always had the feeling that the were about to snap..

The wheels has been changed to a nice fat set of Cross Max's at least on till i get the bearings changed on the american classic rear hub..

Pics are on the way..

Just can't see how you get the weight down to 18.7lbs? My 1998 Lynskey build Litespeed, with XTR, top end Raceface, ti bottom bracket, hope ti hubs, mavic 517 with dt revolution and dt alloy nipples, flite ti, foam grips, carbon bars and bar ends, pace rc31 carbon ridgid forks, air b tubes, slotted chain, conti fold race tyres and xtr spuds, weighs an honest 20.3lb. I'm confused? :?
