Ask Pinkbike: Less Travel Not Less Fun, 15mm Thru Axles and Tire Plugs
Agreed, my last DH rig was 16.5kg from a stock standard Aluminium Giant Glory. Thats with pedals and decent tyres and tubes. Haven't seen many carbon bikes that light off the shelf. YT are only just getting close with the Tues 3 years after my giant was released.

@ChristophColombo: True but itstill hard to call something light weight when the competition make something 200grams lighter. Di2 on an xx1 cassette could be nice

First Look: 2017 DT Swiss Spline One 1501 Wheel Series
@WAKIdesigns: So you basically just built the EX1501 wheel then. Slight difference in hubs but not much else.

I've been on 1501s for well over a year and they are amazing. A lot better than older DT Swiss rims (540s included).

Airshot - Review
Even if its not pressurized it wouldn't matter as far as structural integrity of your pressure vessel is concerned. At 30000 feet there is roughly a drop of 10psi in atmospheric pressure. Which is equivalent to adding 10psi to your pressure vessel. Unlikely to cause a failure. The only reason air lines ask for no compressed vessels is that there is a VERY small chance of failure or damage that could cause the to explode and damage the aircraft, which is roughly the same at 30,000 feet as it is at sea level.

Airshot - Review
Yea but having something portable is invaluable on race weekend when you need a tyre change and you are in the middle of nowhere with the nearest petrol station an hour away. Very nearly bought an airshot but couldn't quite justify spending that much. Did the super cheap soft drink bottle trick instead which works a treat. and cost like a 100th as much. 70psi in a 2L soft drink bottle is super safe and seats my minions perfectly every time.
