f*ck yea dh bike. Old school yeti at 39.7lbs with a spare parts build Full guide and dh tires are in the process right now.

If thats a 14 lb frame and 25 lbs worth of parts, thats pretty damn good for a spare parts build.

See if I can do a parts spec off the top of my head.

RF Atlas cranks and BB
F650s laced to Ringle hubs
Specialized purgatory in the rear and a nevagal in the front
X9 med cage Rd with X0 gripshift
Deore brakes and $10 POS rotors
Clapped out RC4
Some random I beam seat and post
Mrp top guide and taco that I was going to use on my SB-66
Spank 777 bars
Take off xtr cassette from a customer
Chromag stem
Old school 32mm boxxer



She ain't pretty, but I am just stoked to have a big bike again and to not have to thrash on the 66.

Haven't had time to hit the gym or oil up while I've been on the road so my physique is obviously slipping :-(.

It might take a bit longer than stated to get the spring took me 6-8 weeks before I got my pre ordered spring.

soooo, my bikes kinda lardy, around 38 - 39lbs, any easy weight loss areas that dont cost the earth? im more than likely swapping to an xfusion air can and totem or 36 airs later this year, but till then?


2009 bashee scythe dhx5.0
totem rc2 coil
slx cranks
RF single ring
superstar components chainguide (around 180g, not too bad)
spesh roval dh wheels (dt f550 rims, novatec hubs)
minion dhf dual plys, mid weight scwalbe tubes
zee gearing, 11 - 28 cassette
dmr vault pedals
rf atlas bar
gravity stem
hope m4 brakes
stock seatpost, sdg bel air seat, hope qr clamp
fsa pig headset



im thinking tyres, tubes, seat and seat post are easiest, but im getting a reverb for it, ill be able to hit local red routes far easier that way, and i commute on it sometimes, but ill be getting a thomson elite post and tioga d spyder seat for dh days, nice and light.
is it gonna be a case of air suss is only noticable drop in weight?

tubeless, air shock, seat and maybe post.

get the totem air, best single crown dh fork out there, and they are being discontinued after this august.

Best SC DH fork? Pffft

Tyres/tubes would be the best/most noticeable place to target. Short of carbon-ing all the things, air shock and fork (a tapered steerer fork so you can lose the fat stem.), Ti railed saddle, probably lighter brakes too...

Yeah, im gonna be picking some tubeless muddy marys soon, dropping 200g per tyre, and whatever I save on tubes. And I think id come to that conclusion myself tbh, I mean, a need a 700lb spring, that thing weighs a ton on its own, easily half a lb more than a 450. Ive been thinking air lyrics aswell, 170mm, I can reduce rear travel from 7/8 inch to 6.4/7.3 with a shorter shock, been thinking it would make it more enduro aswell as awesome fun on jumpier tracks

Dingus, the stems not too bad, 180g with bolts, same as a Thomson. Though if im getting lyriks or possible even a vengeance, it will be tapered so I can get an atlas stem.

And brakes, I know Cry I really like hopes though, the reliability is brilliant, though New saints are tempting...
