Very sweet build! The best has yet to come.....ride the hell out of it. My 18lb hardtail is lighter and faster than some road bikes. You will love your light bike!

How the hell did you get into the 18s with out the thing breaking in half??

I had to make some compromises because I weigh about 190 lbs...

Tubeless, and having one of the world's lightest hydraulic disc brakes(324g each side, complete)- is what finally did it, for me. I only weigh 165lbs, and the wheels rarely ever leave the ground. Finally, it doesn't break in half- because it's a Cannondale. They are known for their perfect, invisible welds, and three-pound, strong-as-bull frames.
