Just lookin' to see some modded XTC 29er 1's and weights...

I've seen very few on the boards, hoping there's more out there! Pics please!

Love that front fork, the 1X9 setup and the low weight! Curious what wheelset you are running? It does not look like you can get much more weight off of the bike

The wheelset is ZTR hubs with 355 rims laced with DT Revs/alloy, except the drive side rear, where I used DT Comps. I have used revs all round and had issues with rear wheel flex under load. The comps seem to have fixed that, with only a small weight penalty. The wheelset is 1540g with tape and valves, and rides really nicely.

I could save weight with cranks, pedals and tyres (amongst other bits), but it's not a WW show bike - this thing gets raced and ridden often. :thumbsup:

Neat improvements :)

I'm looking forward to seeing the Alliance version in single speed format.

Final step done today (brakes bled). 24lb6oz. Not super weight weenie but not bad for a bike this big. It's still not "done" but at least it's rideable.:thumbsup:

I've had this for a couple of months but only just got the wheels on it. And then broke 2 fingers so I can't ride:mad:

I saw a frameset and fork on ebay.... I think you buy the XTC Alliance (Alu/carbon) as a frameset only.
