lightweight part advise needed
hi, i want to assemble a very light mtb wheels, any advices on hubs spokes and wheels are very welcome
I would check out what the guys on
http://www.light-bikes.com/ are using.
how much do you wanna spend?
mavic xc717 or xm819 rims, hope or chris king hubs, Dt competition spokes, or if you really wanna make it light get the super comp, the aerolite or the sapim cx rays, but those spokes seem silly on a mtn bike to me, aero is for road bikes
here...there is generally a build list under every bike on there.
How light is very light?
Like sub 1400g stupid light? or just regular very light.
Race ZTR 7000 or Alex XCR Scandium rims
Pillar Ti spokes
Should come out between 1100-1200g. Light enough?
^ no he wants 500 g. Try again, lol
2007 Kona Dawg
2009 Trek 3900
Um, XCR rims, Tune mig and mag hubs (94g and 194g, but no disc brakes) and two Ti spokes a wheel. Should get you close, but you can't run any brakes.
Who needs brakes on a mtb anyways?
