heres another attempt to build my lightest full suspension and I will be using some parts from my winter project since Cdale is taking forever to ship frames. for the folks that don't like yellow to much pretend is not there :D thats what I'm doing till I sand it off.
stock frame weight is 2269g with Fox RP23, steel bolts and nuts and 2099g with DT Carbon, Ti and Aluminum bolts and nuts.

Do you have a full picture of the frame? I could look online but catalog pics sometimes do not do frames justice. It would be nice to see a before and after you sand it.

Looks very interesting.

Personally I think you should have left the Fox RP23 on the frame.

I wonder if anyone can make a carbon fibre canister for the Fox RP23 body to save some weight.

How many bikes do you have?

don't agree on that... I've changed the RP23 in my YetiASR Carbon, it was not because the weight. Personally, I consider that for pure XC (I mean competition), it is much beter the DT, you get much control on the shock. But this is a personal way of thinking, I assume many other people prefers the "bob-fox"

There is going to be a flash alloy 29er?

edit: Just checked out the cannondale wesbite... Too bad you can not get a Flash 29er with an EBB or paragon dropouts. Would make a sweet 29er singlespeed. BB30 + lefty fork and 29 inches of tire...

I can already dream up the build. Good thing it is not offered as single speed.

Extralite front hub
Notubes 29er rims
Chris King singlespeed specific rear
SI-SL BB30 crankset w/ FiberLyte chainring
FibreLyte rear singlespeed cog
Easton monkeylight SL bars
Cannondale stem (I think you have to use a cannondale stem for left forks right?)
SLR saddle
EC90 zero offset seatpost
Hope XC Race Brakes
KMCX10SL chain

mmmMMMmmmm

Hey man,

Is that Lefty hub the 28 or 32 hole? I'm trying to find out the weight of the 32, but I've had no luck so far.
this one is 28 hole. but if you do find it let us know.
