Quite possibly!

In other news the FM is now completely built up in all its glory. Had a quick ride but need to adjust the front brake and the mech.
It rides pretty nice now I've stacked the spacer under the stem.

When I get the chance I'll weigh it then switch the focus of the thread to the Kula build and progress.

Looks great. Need some driveside photos tho 😜

You could deffo save weight at the cassette by the looks of it. Nice "spinny" place to save weight also

Is drive side a pre requisite for all projects? 🤣🤣

Anything I buy now needs to be transferable to the Kula eventually. I'm unsure what drivetrain to go with, xtr cassette is still heavy and a lot of cash, I've read that SRAM are compatible but lighter and cheaper? Or at least similarly priced?

New mech and shifter if so then I guess?
