yup, great way to save a few grams on the back of an XC bike.

Kross' Prototype Race Bike - Albstadt World Cup XC
Rear lockout cable routing is as ugly as a Trek Top Fuel (note: I own a top fuel, deleted the lockout remote entirely) Overall it reminds me of a Spark, I'd love for them to come to the US

Bike Check: Anne Terpstra's Ghost Lector - Albstadt World Cup XC
@honda50r: Rough math here - let's say 20# flat for a modern race HT, then 400g for a dropper, 200g for foam tire inserts, 100g for power meter, 100g for a damn tool in the crankset, 100g older xx1 11speed crankset vs RF SL g4 or the like (get the TUNE!), 200g for Sid over a Fox 32 SC, ~100g for remote lockout and housing etc. That's 3# right there without too much creativity, and I'm not sure that Ghost frame is in the range of the Scott or Specialized HT's at sub 900g, probably closer to Santa Cruz or Norco at 1200g+. Or, somebody could weigh it. Bet it's closer to 25# than 20# as pictured....

Bike Check: Anne Terpstra's Ghost Lector - Albstadt World Cup XC
XC Racer here: Looks like a 25# hardtail to me :shrug: And they missed the opportunity for dual gripshift with the new dropper remote + eagle gripshift. Love the tune wheels, classic Euro XC stuff. Let's see some sub 20# hardtails! :)

You know, they could have named it after the Cape Buffalo and called it the Maxxis Black Death...might have played better with the keyboard jockeys here ijs

5 Cross-Country Bike Checks - Sea Otter 2018
@WAKIdesigns: yup just noticed that. I ran both of those tires and thought they were both no bueno, but the Ikon had more rolling resistance and less grip than the XR1 for me. The old XR1 was a nice combo between a Renegade and Racing Ralph, liked those. But Batty would smash me into bits in a race so it must work for her.

@pargolf8: Actually the tire on the front with Emily standing there is blacked out Ikon, and the close up shots are of an XR1. They did a swap of the front wheel between photos.

@bjh0003: its a Bontrager XR1, not an Ikon. I've run both.
