spent some time weighing stuff tonight

bike minus chain pedals and wheels is 4.6 kgs
looking at tyres tubes and wheels
the nice light pulstar/fir wheels are not that light 1180/858g bare
but a syncros front wheel i have is 772 g
and an xtr/121 is 1066 not that light but lighter
the tubes i have are 175/198g so will get some 98g ones after christmas
and tyres , conti xc 1.5 are 447 g
the front raptor on my existing weenie bike is 680g :shock:
so on the search for lighter bigger tyres

Hi fella, well the seatpost is out. That was main stumbling point. Got some parts now, just waiting for some bargain wheels, front mech, etc then I can send it to the powdercoaters in the new year for a respray which is absolutely needs, which is a shame as I like a bit of a rough look. Sadly has no paint at all on the bottom bracket shell and bad scratches all over, plus a weird orange paint all over it.

I will keep you informed :D

Possibly - 64g saving on the skewers, 39g on the tyre. Haven't weighed anything else, but back wheel's pretty generic, so should save something with the 231 / 732 hub.

Fair enjoying this, has to be said :)
