Hey all.. I already know what my next bike will be, a Pinarello Dogma FS 29'er. But that's a year or two off. In the meantime i thought i'd make some upgrades to my current 2012 Cube Ltd CC hardtail 26'er. I'm looking to reduce weight, increase performance and add comfort. Not easy to do on a 26" ht i know. I'm not going to go too far down the weight weeney route. I'm not interested in replacing every liitle screw or bolt just to save a gram. I'm mainly looking at wheels/tyres, bar/stem/seatpost and saddle and peddles. Bar and Stem - I'm leaning towards the Loaded Precision X-Lite Napalm carbon bar and stem. My frame is Alunium, but to my knowledge there shouldn't be an issue using a carbon bar and stem. If i'm wrong please let me know. Any othe suggestions for bar and stem are also welcome. Seatpost - Considering two options at the moment, Loaded carbon seatpost and Syntace P6 Hi-Flex carbon. This is one i really want to get right. I'm looking for maximum comfort. Some people are saying not to use a carbon seatpost in an aluminium frame, some say there's no problem. Any advice here would be a huge help. Also suggestions for comfortable yet light seatposts would be welcome. Hubs - Are DT SWISS 240's better than Shimano XT's? What are the best hubs for xc and all day rides? Don't want Chris King, they're too loud for my liking. Told they're heavy too. Suggestions for light and comfy saddles and peddles (flats) needed too. Thanks.
