Put the Blur LTc on a diet :) Piccies
I’ve had it about two years now and I’ve always been dissappointed with the overall weight. One of the main reasons I got it was to get a lightweight 140mm travel bike, but when I initially built it up it was 30lbs on the nose. With a bit of minor tinkering I got it down to 29lbs but I knew that if I was going to get it lower than that it would take some significant parts to be changed.
Well, I’ve done it (it only took a month to sell/source bits!). New wheels, brakes/rotors, warrantied seatpost, saddle and tires. Now it weighs 27lbs on the button and I’m happy with that. Really does feel better/quicker in this new guisePosted 5 years ago
I really like the look of those wheels, sorry for the ignorance but what hubs & build weight please.
They were 1605g with normal rim tape
this is the only pic i’ve got to hand, any good? Basically it goes under the top tube and then is zip tied to the rear brake hose (I think).Posted 5 years ago
The listed weight is 650g, didn’t weight them but they did ‘feel’ light. they weren’t ‘easy’ to setting up tubes, took three scoops, loads of shaking about and three days to finally get to hold air. seem fine now though, held air for a week or so with no apparent loss of pressure.
I was thinking about ti rotor bolts and a ti bolt kit for the stem 🙂 frame already has a ti bolt kit kit as standard. tried egg beaters and didn’t get on with them. always preferred the shimano ‘click’.Posted 5 years ago
