    06 Scott Sub10 Single speed conversion now complete!!!

    Need to share the news...

    My Sub10 is now truly a Sub10 kg bike!

    I'm SO happy it hurts.

    Awesome piece of machinery. I've got the best bike (or best Subby) in old Sydney town.

    Was running an XT group set (26' wheels, my 700c's are being hand built as we speak), though now have ripped it all off, WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY.

    Am learning to spin and loving it.

    But....... sub 10 pounds isn't all that light. Is it? I mean, I had a 22lb road bike back in 1984, and it wasn't by a long stretch the lightest (or most expensive) thing on the market.

    I can't stop myself saying this - sorry - but my fg weighs 7.1kg. And it's cheap.

    but he's talking a (sort of) mountain bike frame w/hydraulic discs:

    and his posts say he's shaved like 3 lbs off it by going SS...
    it's not the lightest, but worth a small pat on the back.

    haha, yeah i know. sorry for being a dick.

    10 kilos might not be super light, but it aint bad for an all-mountain rig. mine's much heavier, but then again it has wussy ass gears.

    edit: think that scott's xc actually. never mind.

    I thought I was going to see some ridiculous sub 10 pound bikes. Never did grade 6 math? Get on top of your units boy! Also specialize gets a slap on the wrists. This stinks of McDonald's '100% Beef' patties.

    he is comparing his ss mtb to that ss mtb. (whoops, one has gears)

    your comparing your roadie to his ss mtb....

    therefore he has a point; you don't so much really.

    my 29er ss weighs around 22lbs (but it is not a surly frame, which are pretty heavy as far as frames go). i think my friends 29er ss is under 20lbs (kona aluminum frame).

    it's not even an xc bike it's a hybrid.... a stupid expensive hybrid with hydros, an xt rear derailer and deore everything else.

    Just for a little more context, my frame is 20" of 4130 Cr-Mo, a tank if there ever was one. The rear wheel, despite being a freewheel hub weighs as much as many mid-weight road wheelsets (although likely not as much as one Aerospoke).

    I also wish that you had a camera... I think I'm going to do the same for my own... Does anybody know if it's okay to have a single speed in the back but keep the three cranks in the front ?

    It's pretty nice for a hybrid. I'd rather have a Marin Point Reyes or a Novara Safari, but it probably looks better than either of those bikes.
