many thanks!

all your weights seem fine, only things that stick out to me to be changed are the seatpost (get a thomson masterpiece) and the bottom bracket (get a raceface taperlock). other than that it looks awesome, but then again anything build on a yeti frame looks awesome.

I do have a spare RF taperlock 113mm BB, so if that fits I'll use that. If I love the bike longer term I'll fit a phil wood :)

I've tried a thomson layback post & I couldnt let enough layback. The RF post has ti bolts & will be cut down a fair amount (260g is 1ti bolt, uncut)

are the sachs hollow pin chains strong enuff for extended hard use?

You mean SRAM hollow pin chains(SRAM bought out sachs a long time ago..).

I personally use the 89 version which is the road chain. And I have no problems. I know trent lowe uses a hollowpin(or atleast used to..) chain. But I have also heard alot of complaints about them, all in all, I don't think they are any weaker then other sram chains, but they are rather expensive these days:)

What length is the seatpost? It seems heavy, you sohlud be able to save a decent amount of wieght there:)
