Very nice, needs a red alu pinch bolt.

As for chainstay protectors, I use black cork bar tape and insulation tape at both ends to keep it in place.

Nice! Where'd you get the nylon bolts and what size are they? You think its ok to drill holes on some parts of that parallelogram/body?

very nice work, good use of nylon bolts + looks like you ride your bike as well

...you should upload some wider shots of your bike on the "Post your light-weight bikes!" thread
bike is not finished, I will post it at the time...
it is 10.9kg Blur X4 for aggressive riding with Minute MRD 100mm thru-axle, XTR M970 cranks with chainguide, tune King MK/Kong hubs (rear modified for thru-axle), R1 brakes...it will be lighter, but still strong...
