Just finished up my FF29 build, first ride and i'm pretty pleased with it, it's quick and a lot less tiring to ride than my full suss.
Comes in at 25lbs on the nose (proper weight - pedals, bottle cage, mud on the bits i'd not cleaned properly etc)
I was hoping it would build up to about 24lbs, as I want to do a bit of racing on it this winter but get out and ride it everywhere without actually making any sacrifices to the ride/durability.
XT group set with one up 42t and rad cage, cranks with xt trail pedals
Works N.W 1x10
XT brakes 180/160
Kinesis Maxlight wheels, Xking 2.2 tubeless protection
mid range SRAM chain
Fatbar lite, race face basic stem superstar grips
SDG carbon saddle
Looking at the list the obvious places are the front end was out of the spares box - 100g easily knocked off with bar, stem & grips, more if I go carbon but I really don't want to. 24lb would be pretty easy to achieve knocking off the reverb, 42t rear, 180f brakes and a pair of carbon bars but i'm trying to not go there.
What's going to be the best lb for £ next? Cranks & brakes seem the obvious contenders as they're fairly robust and i'll get a decent bit back for them to put towards the replacements. Any ideas? Not much money to spend on it either!
