Wow, sounds like it's gonna be sick. Too bad no one makes petrol 11speed chains. Would be insane. Even still, sounds amazing. 22-24 lbs of insanity.

I would be stoked if it ends up near that weight, but I have a feeling it will be closer to sub 30 lol.
Going to look awesome!!!
Would be sweet to be that light, but mine is weighing in at 29lbs even with a carbon crank. My lyrik and tires are heavier though.
I'm guessing 27.5lbs

My guess is based on my Scott Scale 10. Yes, my frame/fork is way ighter and I have a carbon bar stem, and seatpost (and seat, lol). The rest of my build is heavier than yours. Non-tubeless, xt cranks, absolutely no ti parts and an XTR chain with deity compounds.

Hey there,

Just wondering where people are getting their Dartmoor Hornet Frames from online (w/Global shipping options)?

Some great looking build pictures there, quite inspiring!


Thanks

Looking very slick so far. Once you get it done, you need to get some proper outdoors pic's of it..

lolz IKR, kinda has to stay indoors atm, I actually got those seated tubeless with no sealant 1st try lol. Used some soapy water to get them on the rims, then with the cores out used an air compressor to seat to beads, then I used a small hand pump to finish them off, was that easy. Big Grin

And don't mind the room there in, that's just my gun room, but I don't need everyone seeing all my pew pew toys >.> and fishing gear haha, and besides that rooms a mess atm Eek . lolz

Odd thing is though with the front tire, it doesn't hold air like the rear, there are actually some tiny holes on the side walls, which kind of defeats the *2Bless* rating they're given >.>. Not sure it that is common or not with Specialized tires or not ?

And I am Definitely doing some photo shooting outside, already got a spot picked out at a local park for that day Beer .

Hi guys
I have Hornet 2016. Have anyone tried to replace the rear axle with a quick-release one, cuz I'm tired of always searching for an allen key, when I have to remove the rear wheel ? Smile
