Just put it on the scale, today! 15.3Kg, thats almost 34lbs.

With maxxis 2.35 single-ply minions (8-900g)

Except for xc-tires, I don't think I can get it much lighter. Maybe a lighter saddle and bashguard, but thats not going to make a huge difference.

Thinking about a new fork for next year. Maybe Pike/Lyrik or All mountain SL/66sl1ata Not sure, though...

Reborn RFX

Hey folks; this one's been off the trails for a little while (family, work... usual guff). Summer holidays are here, so I've taken a couple of evenings to change its orig heavyset build to something a little lighter. I'm pretty keen on giving the whole 5-Pack thing a go, but this thing is pretty good in its current guise. About 33lb - a good five pounds lighter than it used to be.

* Frame Size & Color: Large, white 06 RFX, 5th Element Air shock
* Fork: RS Pike 426 Dual Air
* Brakes: Magura Louise FR (203/180mm rotors f/r)
* Cranks: RF Deus (will swap for Atlas)
* Front Derailleur: SRAM X-Gen
* Rear Derailleur: SRAM ESP 9.0 (sick of bending X9s...)
* Pedals: Shimano SPD 545s
* Stem: FSA 70mm/31.8mm
* Handlebar: FSA XC280
* Seatpost: Descenderpost
* Saddle: SDG S2000 (one of the first ones ever made!)
* Bottom Bracket: RF
* Cassette: SRAM 11-34t
* Headset: King (what else? :thumbsup: )
* Grips: Oury lock-on
* Front Tire: Maxxis Lopes 65A 2.3
* Front Rim: Sun S/track 32h
* Front Hub/Skewer: WTB Laser
* Rear Tire: Maxxis Lopes 70a 2.3
* Rear Rim: Sun S/track 36h
* Rear Hub/Skewer: Shimano XT

Picked up one of these '06 frames at Beyondbikes for their lowest closeout price, closeout '06 Z1 Light (Universal Cycles), and closeout '06 Magura brakes (eBay) and Dangerboy levers (Speedgoat). All the other parts were supplied by Chad at Red Barn Bicycles, who was a pleasure to deal with and hooked me up with some great deals. All in all the entire build ended up being cheaper that a new comparable Kona! Gotta love it ....


* Frame Size & Color: Medium Black
* Fork: '06 Z1 Light
* Brakes: '06 Magura Louise FR (190/180mm)
* Cranks: XT
* Bashguard: e13 supercharger
* Front Derailleur: XT
* Rear Derailleur: '07 X9
* Pedals: Wellgo magnesium flats
* Stem: Gravity Light 50mm
* Handlebar: Gravity Light
* Seatpost: Gravity Dropper (3 positions 0/-1/-4in)
* Saddle: WTB Pure V
* Bottom Bracket: XT
* Cassette: SRAM 970
* Headset: Chris King NoThreadset
* Grips: Ody LockOn Rogue
* Front Tire: Kenda Nevy 2.35 StickE
* Front Rim: DT 5.1d
* Front Hub/Skewer: Hope Pro II
* Rear Tire: Kenda Nevy 2.35 StickE
* Rear Rim: DT 5.1d
