These are a sweet build up from Red Barn, Chad laced up Hope BULB Hub to DT 5.1's with Comp Spokes for the Front, and Hope XC, Steel Cassette Body, to DT 5.1's with Comp Spokes for the rear. Impressively light for such a burly wheelset, in fact the new wheels are just shy of a 1/2 lighter than the old set.
The Lyrik is dam near a pound lighter than the Z1 it replaces and it dwarfs the Z1.
LMAO.....I love how the Tigman weighs his 35 lb bike to the hundredth place....LOLTIGMAN said:Darn it , now your Bruja is going to be lighter than mine ! I weighed mine at 35.97 lbs after mounting my new Big Betty tires ! Looking forward to seeing your Beast ( I mean Bruja no I mean Beast ) and ride report with the new upgrades ! TIG.
Weight watchers teaches their clients that technique......it's all part of the denial of weight or should I say mass. You know the earth loves you this much.....heck if you were on the moon you'd be your ideal weight. :thumbsup:FoShizzle said:LMAO.....I love how the Tigman weighs his 35 lb bike to the hundredth place....LOL

for the X5, probably the U-Turn version is not totally unreasonable since you could hit different increments of travel instead of being restricted to either 160mm, or 160mm and 115m (ie, 2-step model). probably dont need the extra stiffness if not doing relatively aggro riding and not to mention, it is a lot of coin in comparison.stripes said:Is the Lyric overkill for the X-5? I love my Pike, and I can't imagine it with more travel or what the Lyric would buy you over the Pike.
dont pay no attention....jealousy is uglyCiclistagonzo said:It's what worked out best for Chad and I and I'm not worried about it all.
Besides one thing I noticed after doing some checking is the Pro II have a narrower track.
the bearings are spaced closer together than the Bulbs, and the Mech. Eng. in me prefers the wider spacing.
I have never been nor do I ever plan on being interested in Stan's or tubeless so the 5.1 were a perfect fit for both my needs and budget.
Besides, whatcha doing harshing by new parts buzz!?!?!?
did not think to consider that, not that i would opt for other than 160mm on the bruja. how do you set the travel? is it via internal spacers i assume...just curiousCiclistagonzo said:...so can the SoloAir I have, 130/145/160mm.
