Since Extralite won't respond to my frame purchase inquiries:madman: ........Anyone know if framesets available in the Hei Hei Supreme flavor? Also, what's the weight on these framesets? I like the frameset but I know I could do MUCH better then the 22.5lbs for the full-on package. Also, are the linkage pivots Ti? Rear brake bosses Ti? If not these can be tuned.:thumbsup:

I don't know if they're available yet as a frame only. They shoudl be later this spring, though. There are like 5-6 guys on my race team that are riding the new Hei Hei in various build combinations (and one on a near stock Hei Hei Supreme) and the lightest that I know if is in the 22.0-22.5 lb range.

His build is something like this, I think:
Stock Hei Hei 20" frame
2007 Mavic SLR wheelset
Maxxis Crossmark tires (probably w/ Stans kit)
rim brakes (I don't know what calipers) with Avid speed dial levers
stock SID race fork,
full X.9 drivetrain,
2007 Ritchey WCS stem/bars,
Thomson Elite seatpost,
Truvativ Stylo Team (?) cranks,
........etc, etc.

I'm not sure how much else can be shaved of that bike. Unless you started going crazy with ti hardware, etc. It's pretty much top shelf stuff across the board.

Note, his modified Hei Hei is lighter than the other guy's 18-19" stock Hei Hei Supreme.

Thanks. Lots of room IMO for getting the weight down off the stock build. How?
Some thoughts.....
DA 12/27 cassette-180g
Extralite ebones integrated CS- 640g
DA Rear Derailleur- 180g
Tune Concorde saddle- 62g
Extralite Ultrabrakes/Levers-260g
Stans ZTR Rims- 720g
Tune Mig/Mag hubs-260g
Extralite Freehead headset- 75g
Syntace F99 stem- 99g

I could go on but, the 2007 XTR is NOT very light. If the Hei Hei frameset comes in around 4.5lbs like I think it should then a 18.5lb build will be very easy.
