pulled mine to bits in an attempt to remove the 4lb of mud stuck to it
and give it a polish and do all the bits i have on my list
still no light tubes in the post , well no post tbh :roll:
ended up fitting a pair of mag 20's to it , but i think they wont stay
got some 21's to try and some SL ti ones but they're all threaded
so that adds a bucket load of weight
anyone got a good polished 130 ahead syncros stem 1 1/8" flip front they
want to part with ?
might loose the risers too

One for you weight weenies, I spotted Maxxis 330 tyres on CRC. The 330 refers to 330grams per tyre in 26 x 1.9" :shock: They're £25 each so not ridiculous although are aimed at hardpack racer types as the knobbles are not particularly deep.

Nearly there... saddle arrived today, still waiting on alloy chainring bolts from CRC, orderered on 4th. Will cable up the brakes at some point this weekend I think. Possibly don't need the ghost ring, chain is just about tight enough.

Doesn't feel all that light when I pick it up... According to my slimfat spreadsheet, eggbeaters push the bike weight over the 19lb mark :?

Edit: 18.8lbs according to bathroom scales. hmmm....
