Got in some new parts. Pics!!!!
First pic is before, second is after. Not a great pic though. Went from 30 to 33.5 pounds.
Just got in some new 36 hole rhynolite xl's w/xt hubs , avid bb5s and envy chainguide. Also the crank, and bb are about a week old, raceface evolve dh and evolve fr bb. Oh, and painted the stem.
The chainguide is basically a plate that bolts in place of the small ring like another inner bashguard. Haven't ridden it yet to see if it actually works well but I can get it into all the gears now without dropping the chain. Cost $30 and if it works and I don't have to spend $100 plus on a "real" chainguide, all the better. I had to machine it down a bit for it to fit and not hit the frame. That's one of the benefits of having a lathe at work.
First pic is a before pic. Then completed with all the upgrades. And extras.
Still might change out the fork someday or may just beat the crap out of it till it busts. Other than that, I hope I am done.
Damn happy with it though.
The test ride shall tell all. Well, after the bakes are broken in anyway.
