This should be a killer all mountain ride... Built up super light weight for my out of shape ASS!!! Anyway, let me know what you guys think...

Free Stats


Medium Black Ano 05 Free

33 lbs total bike weight

Boxxer World Cup (04) 6.5lbs

WTB Laserdisc Lite wheelset (super light)

WTB Weirwolf 2.5 Kevlar front tire and 2.4 Mutano rear

WTB Rocket V Ti Saddle

New MRP (much lighter than the old... Used older outer plate to shed some ozs.)

Fox DHX 5.0 with steel spring... Should be able to save a bit more weight with Ti... (black looked better though)

Hayes HFX Mag Brakes with Carbon Levers and Ti Hardware

FSA K-Force 2in rise Carbon Bar

Truvativ Stylo 170mm crank

SRAM XO with X9 trigger shifter

Shimano DH pedals, not the lightest but the best for sure.

Thomson Stem and Post

King headset


Thanks,Forrest

I give your hubs 2 weeks. Light-weight weight weenies are blowing bearing in less than 3 months. Swwet build, no doubt, but not 33lbs, check your scale. I'd say 36-37.

I've been riding the same hubs for 2 full seasons, no problems. At 190 lbs riding rocky 2000' vert. rides, guess that makes me 21 months overdue for that scheduled hub explosion...

You!

Forrest,

You are a punk! lol.... you make all of us envy your light, long travel rig.... I hate you! lol...
My old Schwinn BMX is heavier than that! I think we better strap on some heavy lead fishin' weights to the downtube to even things out!

Now, what can you do for my Fly? (42+ pounds - DH tires though)

Ride on! Rolfe

I believe that he could actually get close or achieve 33lbs.

MIne is 43lbs and here is my guesstimated breakdown between the two:

My large frame is 1 pound heavier than his medium.
His front fork is about a pound lighter than my 888.
That new Fox rear shock is 1/2 pound lighter than a 5th Element.
Those particular WTB tires really suck, but they are very light. I bet about 1 pound total for both against the Kendas.
Those WTB rims are very light (and weak). Probably close to 1/4 to 1/2 pound over my EX729s?
regular sized bars (carbon) versus 31.8's = lighter.
regular stem versus Maez direct mount = lighter.
Single ring & chainguide versus Dual ring & EVIL DRS = lighter.
His brakes over my Mono 6 = lighter.
I have heavy ass DH tubes which are probably close to 1 pound 1 pound over regular tubes.

The above is probably around 5 to 6 lbs.

Consider all other miscellaneous little things like his XO derailer and stuff and it all adds up.

This is how it should be built though:
