    XT no (maybe the brakes but nothing else).

    My bike has XT brakes and drivetrain. Still over £4500 worth (at retail). Couldn’t care less if it’s considered a “superbike” though.

    Maybe we should start a none superbike thread, that have XT parts (Not Brakes)

    Yup no Canyons or Cubes.

    Purely a personal dislike of mass produced, big german direct sales outfits. Knocked out in their thousands in a Taiwanese factory.

    Cube aren’t direct sales, Canyon are just as mass produced as most of the others on here. you not posting your bike?

    Wouldn’t a ‘super bike’ be either the top end model from any manufacturer (bespoke or mass produced) fitted with the top end components from any component manufacturer (bespoke or mass produced), say an S-Works Enduro with Enve wheelset/cockpit kit, XX1 drivetrain and XTR brakes (plucking an example out of the air)?

    It doesn’t look quite as pristine as this now – been used all round the UK for events like the Dyfi, HONC and even the odd XC race, and just come back from doing the PPdS and a week in the Basque. It’s ‘super’ to ride, and incredibly versatile

    No way. My bikes are a long way off “super”. Far too much slx and xt!

    not sure if this counts, but is probably the prettiest bit of scandyummy and carbon weight weenie SS race rocket that I’ve owned

    This is it, it’s all I have.
    Corratec Team Bow frame, carbon forks, wobbly ring, Avid cable discs – simple, light and a joy to ride, it’s better than super, it’s reet grand.

    Which Devinci is that?

    I’ve been pleased with my Dexter but the lure of CF is always there.

    16.5 lbs baby!!!

    Lost 1100g+ with the RDO fork, the fork feels crazy light.

    That funk – WOW!
    Also niner^ not trying hard enough – surely loose the stickers on rims and metal bar plugs?

    Member

    Yeah the bar end plugs could go and are a hang over from my previous build.

    I am in the lots of small weight losses zone now, I could change the RX brakes to R1s but that is a a fair old chunk of cash for a small weight loss.

    I have been looking at a Tune saddle to lose about 125g but loathed to take an expensive punt replacing a saddle I can do centuries on with not a sore in site

    I could change the rear cog to allow me to run a 9 speed lightweight chain

    Ti bolts through out, replace the Ti 1 pedals (with upgraded axles) to Ti3/4s (but a bit pricey)

    I could lost half a pound or more on the tyres but the flint around here tears them up so a pointless bit of weight saving.

    hmmmm as if I haven’t spent enough 😆

    I wasn’t going to post this but the standard of some of these “super bikes” seems a bit low so this should fit in ok. 🙂

    Alu bolts are lighter, and far cheaper, just replace what you can with alu. Mt Zoom bar, New Ultimate stem, Mt Zoom top cap/bolt, definitely needs a lighter saddle – Speedneedle, SLR C64, Bontrager Affinity RXL if you want to sit on it!

    Dirtyrider’s Scalpel is probably my favourite here. “Proper” superbike in that aswell as it being damn expensive and light, you are highly unlikely to ever see anything else the same.

    the paint was removed to save weight and then clear lacquered over

    Is that a pun I’m missing, or did you misspell “chameleon”?

    Not wild keen on the purple, but that Scalpel is my fave so far!

    @ phil56, what travel forks are you using? Thinking about one of those for myself.

    Great minds, already have Mt Zoom bar and my KCNC stem is lighter than anything else I have found (and very cheap for the weight)

    Was looking at Tune Komm-Vor Saddle

    Not sure on Ali bolts as most of the places are going to be rotor and calliper bolts.

    Love the new for, instant power delivery and not as harsh as I expected, I managed to knock 1.5mins off my PB for my evening 15 miler (and my previous time was me really going for it where this ride felt easy going!)

    Here’s mine – though it’s changed a bit since this pic. An old superbike – when built up in 2007 it was state of the art:

    Scott carbon Genius RC Ltd, Pace RC39, XTR (9×3!) drivetrain, Formula R1 brakes (B4SL pictured) with Hope floating rotors, FSA carbon (ISIS!) cranks with AC BB. Olympics on King/Kong, Syntace F99 stem, KCNC flat bars and bar ends (Extralite bar ends pictured), Scott carbon seatpost, SLR saddle. <22lbs including pedals (XTR).

    Now c’mon – HT2 came out in 2003, ISIS was as obsolete in 2007 as it is now. I was running 2×9 in 2006 too.

    Haha, I envisaged a comment like that! Would a smiley have helped?! I like looking at nice bikes, I apologise for a few light hearted comments.

    It’s about the weight with those Isis cranks and American classic bb , was a popular set up back when

    Agreed, only recently have outboard bearing cranks got lighter. Even then Heinz Wittman used some obscenely light quirky set up on his 11lb Scale, 300g cranks or sommat.
