Impressive. Care to share your build. I see carbon wheels and cranks. Eggbeater (Ti?) pedals. Hope brakes. Any other weight saving components?
those are mt7 racelines and yes on the pedals , wheel set weights 1407 grams and is 35mm wide , cranks came with frame has fat bar lite which is 187 grams

My son picked up a Rad Runner about a year ago at the time I wanted to research something for my wife. We went over to check the style, fit and comfort and it was that easy. Hers has fenders I added, his has the orange front rack. We will be at 1 yr from purchase date in mid May. Very pleased.

My new Orbea Rise. Super happy with the way it came out. Did the LTD with MYO custom colors. Upgraded to Fox Factory 36/150 and a DPX2, and also 4 piston XTR brakes front and rear. I swapped the grips for Ergon GE1's, cut the bars down a bit, but other than that she's ready to ride! Sold my Pivot Shuttle - this rig is 10 lbs lighter (a shade under 39 lbs with pedals).

Kashima fork, shock and dropper looks really good with the fame and grips. Simply stunning.

That's a really sweet build! Colorway is sick... Pretty light, nice wheelset.

We need a ride report when you get the chance

What!?! No love for my plain vanilla white bike? I was really wanting to go the My O custom paint route, but In knew my patience (or impatience) level wouldn't allow me to wait that long. It was looking like August or Sept for a custom job and that was back in October. When the bike shop got the size and build in that I wanted, I couldn't help myself from pulling the trigger. I'm happy I didn't wait. I like the color and it's such a hoot to ride. It is a nice bike Rick. I have an orange Yeti that I really like too.

LOL. Actually, when I was ordering, the MYO ship date was months sooner than stock colors! Weird.

Yeah, that is weird the custom was so much faster. It really is an awesome looking bike. Under 39 lbs is amazing too with that build. Mine comes in right at 40. Loving it!!

FYI, I "dropped" the dropper. Just not my thing. Don't try to convince me. I can't be convinced. ;-)

I swapped over the components, TSDZ2/12ah 2170 cell battery and all the other parts that were once my older QBall onto my old 9Ball that was missing a custom der. hanger for about 10yrs, custom bikes can be challenging....Girven Design/Quiring Made one of a kind. Not modern and a lowly kit system but it gets me where I want to go and sometimes beyond where I should

Looks good. Did you harvest parts off another bike? Did you spend more or less than a complete bike? What is weight and how does it ride etc.
