Pretty close though, mine was including pedals though. Nice build, what year is yours as the cable routing is different to mine. You've also got a decal on the top tube I don't have on mine. Am I missing something?

I'm no expert but I'd guess the weight is in your lovely fox forks. We could find out as I'm having some painted black at the moment and may give them a try when I get them back.

I'll be in early 1990s lycra at Mayhem, :shock: people can take a guess!

My new Xpedo ti pedals have a weight limit of 85kg, I'm well under that...

3 on the side is an early '93 frame, the 2+1 routing is later as on my '95.

Thanks for confirming the year. I've acquired a set of pace rc31s recently, should I throw them on and make it a bit lighter?
