Anyway, won’t do it again!
I'm with you homie. I do understand the rules of the posts and respect them but I also think people came in a little hot on ya for just mentioning that you had a set up for grabs. Oh well...it's all good!

Thanks man, it's over now so hey ho! Can't wait to shred man, weather looks absolutely awful for next week ????

Here's another shot of the whip. I recently replaced the cranks and the seat, which finally got the beast under 10kg. That's been a long term goal, but now I'm scheming on sub-20lbs (so I can flex on Americans too)


Feedback and suggestions always welcome (besides rigid/brakeless/cassette)

I'd happily settle for what you have tbh! looks like an amazing bike and the spec is perfect. plus, sub 10kg is insanely light, sub 20lbs a step too far for perfectionists and people with too much money in my opinion hahah.

The pro's who ride crankworx etc will barely have sub 10kg bikes :')

@sickdj17 I think I'm going to treat myself to a set of tubolitos when indoor park season hits and I don't have to worry about glass flats. Tough to justify when I'm running over all kinds of sharp bullshit riding street. Are you using them?

Haha thanks for the props man. It really is a pretty nice bike at this point and it rides beautifully. I always want to push just a bit more though. Like a project car or something. I'm a perfectionist with the build but I still try to ride it as hard as possible.

To be honest, I feel like I can optimize my bike farther than the pros. I can mix and match SRAM and shimano, drill holes in whatever I want, and remove any sticker I want.

Yes I have the Tubolitos. So far no flats. Has seen quite a few cases and 450 landings with no issues. I let people demo my bike at Air Rec Center so it gets a bit abused haha

Nice, that's very reassuring to hear. I've found the WR1 rims are pretty resilient against pinch flats and unseated tires from spins, so debris is my only concern.

My buddy got some of the Tubolitos on his Maj about a month ago. He rode it to the store one time and he had a flat when he came out of the store, the valve stem tore at the tube. Don't know what caused it and my bud is definitely not a hack.....just thought I would throw that out there since there's not a heap of reviews on them yet.

Interesting, thanks for the info. I almost clicked buy on a set last night, definitely not a ton of reviews...but losing a significant amount of weight without a wheel upgrade is quite tempting.
