Thanks guys :-)

WOrking on getting a black seat for it, but I gotta have a dash of color with some small parts. The brakes were supposed to be red, but gold is what showed up. I have a sprocket that matches the brakes, and I though about stripping the decals and running black/gold but I also thought about a subtle tie-in with the race bike, but then again I might just sell the race bike, reclassify and race on the jumper once in a while, it`s all of 24 pounds (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drinks.gif)

Black and a little gold is a sick combo! 24 lbs is legit. I would say that you could sell the race bike, for sure. And you could still drop the weight on that trails bike too, with some folding tires, seat combo and plastic pedals. I know macneil makes a plastic pivotal seatpost/ seat combo. Just some ideas if you are looking to lighten up the bike!

By the way, how is that half link chain treating ya? I was thinking about switching over for my new build.

No plastic pedals for me. It`s 23lbs 12oz to be exact, and I`m not really interested in setting out to make it lighter. My race bike 20 years ago was probably more than that, it`s plenty light for a FS bike.

I`ve been running half link chains since the shadow conspiracy chain came out (about 3 years ago). Worth every penny.

Thanks Jeff. I have heard really good things about the Shadow chains. I hear ya on plastic pedals. I only run em cause I am a dinky 145 lbs on a good day. And they are cheap way to lighten up my 27 pound racer! Ha. I only wish my ride was 23 lbs.

Almost done. Looking for some black cranks. Still haven`t decided on red brakes or a gold sprocket. I have a burnt orange sprocket that goes well.

And all of my bikes have one piece that just rocks, and on this one it`s the front wheel. KHE Astral wheel. The hub is designed so the spokes never make contact with any grinding surface, so no real need for a guard.

The decision was made for me when I switched to the Primo cranks. The red sprocket has a 19mm spindle hole and the Primos have a 22, which the orange is cut for. Can`t say I`m disappointed:

Almost 100% done. I said I wouldn`t get a gyro until I earned it, and I`ve just about got bunnyhop barspins wired so it`s on it`s way (I`ll be damned if I`m gonna run brakeless.)
