My latest build - a 1999 Lynskey Titanium Obed 3.5lb frame. Stored from new and never used. Hoping to fit Pace Rc31s and full nos 9 speed Xt. More pics soon. Hoping to get it down to around 21lb when built up. Will be built for hard useage and fast fun! :D

Pace RC31 rigid carbon and magnesium forks should help keep the weight down. They weigh 771g.

Is this going to be a single speed :?

Update :oops:
Quote:
full nos 9 speed Xt.


My bike should be pretty light but unfortunately im a giant and the frame is based upon a garden gate so it comes in at about 26 1/2lbs :( (though the USE sus post and beaded tyres do bump it up a bit)
Tyre choice is good for dropping weight as it changing unimportant bolts to alloy or Ti Whats your choice of cranks :?

Choice of cranks, either nos Raceface Turbine LP or XT 750. As this bike is being built to ride, I may keep the Turbines for my next build, a Kona explosif garage queen ultimate build. Litespeed will be 9 speed.
