I also have a Scalpel with the specification like a 2000, but with following changes:
XTR front derailleur
XTR Rapid Fire Shifters
Magura Louise FR
XT Rear Cogs
Michelin XCR Mud
Salsa Lock on Grips
and it weighs 25,7 lbs, how it is possible that yours weigh 23,5 lbs. Have you weighed it by your one?
This month a will change saddle, saddlepost and the grips and this will save about 0,75 lbs!
So how it is possible that yours is so light, are the crossmax sl much lighter than the standard XM 819 rims on the Scalpel 2000?
Yes the FR, because the black ones are looking better than the normal Silver one. And there is no difference between the FR and the normal Louise, excepting the 180mm front rotor.damion said:Also your Louise FR brakes. (is that right, the FR louises?)
Dump the 180mm rotor for a 160mm.ribisl said:Yes the FR, because the black ones are looking better than the normal Silver one. And there is no difference between the FR and the normal Louise, excepting the 180mm front rotor.
CD competition seat post (247g) --> Thomson Masterpiece setback 10° (191g)= 56g
Fizik Plateau (307g) --> SQ Lab Super 6 (210g) or Selle San Marco Aspide FX (140g)=167g
Salsa Lock on Grips (160g) --> Titec Pork Rinds (19g) = 141g
Total savings: 364 g
Where can I reasonably save some other weight ?
