Are the wheels/tires on the heavier side for this build? 21.5 lbs aint heavy, but with a 3lb frame running 1x I would think this bike would be 20ish.

And how do you like the vredesteins btw? have always been curious about those tires.

The wheels are rated at "1560 grams". They are lighter than the 26 that came off of the bike. I could go with a carbon set of hoops and drop 200 ish grams and a lighter drivetrain.


The tires are great, I had an older set that are discontinued and they were only good in hard pack. These hook on almost any surface.

Weird as the N'Litened is on the head tube and missing the Homegrown Factory sticker on the top tube...

:)
Very nice frame! Yeah, I didn't want to go with an older caliper(just wanted newer tech) and the XTR + A2Z adapter was the only solution I found. Took some balls to take a dremel tool to an XTR caliper.
