Well here it is. It took a couple of months but I finally finished my first build up from a frame only. It felt great on the street now I just need the trails to dry out a bit so I can get a real test ride done. Final weight as pictured with bottle and pump was 26lbs 7ozs.

The QR was tightened right after I took the picture and yes I know I do need to adjust the seat still. Just keep forgetting to do it. Hope I remember to do it before I hit the trails though. I also have to get rid of the pump and carry it in my pack. I hate it mounted to the frame.

Thanks everyone!

@Wedge... I think it may just be the angle but I will give it a second look when I adjust the seat. Thanks

@GP... Thanks! I've only had it out on the street a bit but I
Iike the way it feels. Very quick acceleration and it seems nimble. I am hoping the weather cooperates this week and things dry up a bit so I can get on some trails next weekend. I'll give you a better report then

I saw a lot of posts about using 26" tubes to save weight so I thought I would give it a try. I happened to have a regular 26" tube laying around so that is what I used as a test. The savings right now is only 35g but now that I know it works well I can get a set of light tubes and save almost 100g per.

Just because I have Stans doesn't mean I have to run tubeless, I'm not really sure if I want to go that route or not. I'm not really sold on tubeless yet.

Don't knock it til you try it. ;)

I've had great experience with tubeless wheelsets on two bikes but they were UST. I'm also working on getting parts for my RIP frame and will be going with a Stans tubeless wheelset as well.
