So here is my Pace rc300, weight weenie styles but not dangerously so!
Spec is:

Bottom Bracket: Crank Brothers Cobalt ISIS
Brakes: Hope Mono Mini w/ ti bolts and braided cables
Cassette: Sram pg990
Chain: Sram pc991
Crankset: Middleburn RS7 170mm ISIS
Derailleur Rear: Shimano XTR M952
Fork: Pace RC31 C-Type
Grips: TiTec Pork Rinds
Handle Bar: Renthal RC30
Headset: Hope inc. Hope Head Doctor
Pedals: Crank Brothers Egg Beater 2Ti
Quick Releases: Aspire Velotech Ti bolt on skewers

Seat post: Tune 'Starke Stuck'

All in all this rides really well and you can throw it around on single track but still holds good control.
I love riding this and will do until I break it :wink:
Hope you like it. Merry Christmas

Nice build, pleased weight came out similar to my Lightning, as there were a lot of doubters on here!
It's got V's still which are lighter than Discs, but RC36's which are a bit heavier than 31's, the frame will be a little lighter too.
XTR Cassettes are a fair bit lighter than Sram 990's btw. Whats the rear mech weigh? I'm running Dura ace triple which is 180g

You could save a couple of grams by using short valve innertubes! :wink:

Nice build!

Looks good, but those forks are looking way long for that frame.

Have to agree, lovely build, but the forks make the geometry look a bit wrong.

Adds voice to chorus of "geometry is shot".

Not liking front chainring idea either. If chain falls off under shifting - and it will - that's a very expensive piece of alloy to be gouging holes in.

Nice build on the whole though.
