    .63lb saving there

    Well if Dango and 12 are putting their bikes up, I’m going to as well. Orange (strange) Alpine Five, TALAS forks, etc. It now has Maxxis tyres because although the Michelins gripped really well, the sidewalls were made out of tissue paper

    Dangoo – weighing components is a slippery slope! Been there….although it is very effective. I shed loads of weight off my SX when I realised how heavy some of the components were. My Diabolus cranks and A frame pedals weight more than my house.

    I_Ache – you know that you need I to spring, don’t blame me! On a serious note, if you need to shed some weight it should make a difference. That spring in there will weight loads; the dinky springs I have left over from the Van R in my old stinky weigh enough so his knows what that thing weighs.

    With regards to measuring sag, you”ll need to get your missus to get the tape measure out whilst you mount… 😉 the bike!

    My Heckler has just earned its stripes in Morzine/Les Gets last weekend!!

    The Marz55 160’s and offset bushings really slackened it out nicely.

    At one point on a 50k AM loop I was really wishing Mindmap3 hadn’t talked me into a single ring on the front!!!!

    Dan, you know it makes sense. Don’t blame me for your weedy legs! It looks good though, how slack is it now with the offest bushes?

    Dango I thought my cranks were heavier than that tbh. But swapping them for slx and putting a Ti spring on will save over 1lb.

    Mindmap the thing is I don’t know where else I can/would want to save weight without spending loads or compromising the bike. If I had loads of money I would go for some carbon rims. But then it I had loads of money I would buy a Stumpy Evo carbon and a DH bike.

    MDE Bikes Carve 6 frame with custom geometry
    Shaman Racing Drake chain guide
    Shaman Racing 34t chainring
    ODI bars, stem and grips
    SRAM X0 Type 2 mech and X0 shifter

    Ti spring should be a good saving over the steel one, the cranks will yeild a pretty good one too depending on what you go for.

    What about pedals? I know you’ve got Straitline ones which are lovely but I’ve no idea what they weigh. My Nano’s are 200g lighter than the A frames they replaced, which is quite a lot.

    Other than that you’re into the realm of marginal (expensive) gains I guess. Carbon bar? Posher cassette? Tubeless? The Charge saddle is quite heavy but lighter saddles ain’t cheap and some are like torture devices.

    I know I’ve only had a quick pedal on it, but it seems to ride quite lightly (if that makes any sense at all).

    I seem to be one of a few who prefer a slightly heavier bike! Just feels nore substantial, light bikes feel too fragile.

    Zesty running 1 x 9 with e13 bash and chain guard. Reverb, 760 superstar bars, DMR v8 pedals, 150mm revelation u-turns up front. No idea how much it weighs…

    Heckler in snow by jwrfooo, on Flickr


    Heckler rebuilt by jwrfooo, on Flickr

    Medium Heckler with RS Lyrik coil forks. Runs a Fox RC coil shock now. Mostly SRAM X9/X0 2×10 drive train, Hope Hoops, M4 brakes and finishing kit. A smattering of Thomson to finish it off. Not the lightest bike, but it’s very reliable and great fun to ride.

    not sure about all mountain, but here’s my FS mountain bike :

    I agree to a point. I think the 30lb mark is about the difference between feeling too light and feeling tough enough. As mindmap says mine pedals lighter than it feels to lift. If I could make it a couple of lbs lighter I would be pretty happy.

    Mine is no lightweight and nor was my SX. The thing that made my SX feel beter was lighter wheels and tyres. My Eastons with tubeless Hans Dampfs were around 600g lighter than my old wheel and tyre combo and are probably as tough if not tougher. The SX felt loads more spritely after this change.

    Although changing forks, cranks, pedals and chain guide lost a big chunk of weight you couldn’t feel it outdo on a ride.

    My Rune is about a pound heavier than the SX but is actually quicker to ride due to better geometry, a better fir for me, better suspension for pedalling and like the newer Enduros pedlas lighter than it is. I know it’s not massively scientific, but Igor round the Dog and Monkey at Cannock loads quicker than I have done previously and was keeping pace with guys on my lighter bikes on the climbs and flat bits.

    I’m really happy with the Rune, it seems to be quiet adept at covering some distance but is also really good fun on the descents and jumps. Sure it’s probably a bit burly but I’m happy on it and would be more than happy doing an uplift day or two on it.

    It surprises me ow happy people are with heavy vies. I find it really odd when full DH bikes are now sub 35 lb that trail bikes like these aren’t much lighter. My Old metal intense with 140 travel weighed 26lb so why with so much carbon now are these bikes nt significantly lighter when compared to DH bikes?

    _tom_

    I think 30lbs is about right, much lighter and it just doesn’t feel right to me. And heavier isn’t such an issue. Lugged my 38lb Bullit all around Whistler and up Snowdon no problem. This is my “all mountain” bike – obviously the emphasis is on dh but it can climb a bit with the seat up. Thinking I may 1×10 it and get some kind of dropper post so it’s better for other stuff. And maybe a lighter fork.

    My Shiny new Bronson C. Absolutely amazing bike, replaces my Blur LTc that was knicked a couple of months back (on insurance).

    Fells like a much more sorted bike than the Blur (slacker head angle will help i`m sure). It is so confidence inspiring on the downs and still climbs bloody well (it does only weigh 28lb). Love it….

    another El Guapo, it’s a really lovely bike running:

    Fox Talas 36
    CCDBair
    & full XT 2×10 (though i’m saving my pennies for the second X01 is launched)
    currently awaitng the delivery of a shorter stem, and renthal fat bars lite

    Not sure it’s All-Mountain, more like All-Mincing with me on board, but I built this up for the Summer.
    Mostly old S/H kit.
    It’s exactly 30lb.

    It’s because most people can’t afford to spend £8k on a bike that is light and strong.

    Gwins session 9.9 from last year was 36lbs, and was the lightest on the circuit, so not sure where you get sub 35 from? Got pics of your old metal intense weighing 26lbs?
