    Looks pretty good. If you ditch the front brake and use an S&M Pitchfork XLT, you can drop another 1-1.5 lbs pretty easily. (I personally like front brakes, but if you're going for weight you might want to ditch them).

    It'll probably be under 30lb, you have some fairly light parts there. I'd personally get a different rear hub, and a KMC Dropbuster/510HX would be better than the Shadow chain. And I'd get Jim C. pedals instead.

    I second the Jimmy C pedals. My friend has the Hamiltons, they are nice, but have no grip whatsoever.

    I don't like to follow Trends and i don't want to limit myself
    and brakeless is for trend*****s and poor people really
    and i like to grind both sides and sometimes crooked grind at parks
    and the 4 pegs don't get in my way anyways, but if you DO run 4 pegs, look out 1 of my friends broke 2 ribs when a peg jammed against his chest
    and with the seat-stay brake mounts the 25-9 gearing won't get in the way
    and with the 2 brakes and 4 pegs i could do flatland, not hardcore flatland but good enough to do some tricks

    and does anybody know if the Animal GLH tires are any good? im going to run odyssey path in front and i'll be doing little softcore dirt jumping now and again

    and no my uncle wasn't gay or rich or dead
    i just wanted you guys to beleive me so you had a purpose to comment on this set-up.

    Well, depending on your definition of a trend, it might be. I don't care if it is or not, but riding with my brakes on makes riding less enjoyable for me. Since I'm not in it to do as many tricks as possible, throwing away brake tricks doesn't matter that much IMO. It makes you be more conscious of your speed and kind of forces you to commit, and makes you learn stuff at slightly different speeds every time you try it.
