Just finished upgraded my Hybrid

SLX triple 48 36 26 replaced the FSA A drive, the SLX crankset weights 935 grams with the BB, the FSA weights 1300 grams with it's square taper BB, a lb saving right there. XO Red Wing 3x9 speed shifters, XO Red Wing 9 speed rear derailleur, SLX front derailleur, ( stock were X7) SLX 11-28 9 speed cassette, and HG 73 chain( stock were Suntour 11-32 and KMC chain ), XO brake levels and calipers replaced the Juicy 3, I will replace the disc rotor to 180mm. Thomson setback and Fizik saddle. Bike now weights 22lb with pedal.

Every time I see one of those forks, it really throws me off for a second!

Great looking bike!

Other than 4lb of weight lost( I changed the tires from 28mm stock to 25mm victtoria pro), the XO shifters are more snappier, I didn't notice any other differences, sometimes it made me wondering, why people spent all these money on bicycles..........
