Some changes have occured on my 29er. First, I want to thank Vicious Cycles for making this happen. I couldn't have done it without them.

Introducing..... 2008 Mavic Cr29ssmax Disc in 29inches of pure bliss!

The wheelset weighed in at 1769grams (3.90lb) without tires, skewers, rotors, and a rear cog. Not bad considering Mavic's website says 1750grams.

Mavic skewers
Stan's 29er rubber rim strip w/ integrated valve core
two cups of Stan's tire sealant per tire
Maxxis Crossmark 29er tires
Shimano XTR 160mm rotors
Surly 20t singlespeed cog
Old cassette spacers and a 11t cog w/ lockring to keep it all together (eventually to be replaced with a SS spacer kit)

resultant wheel weight = 3824grams (8.43lbs)

latest specs:

Frame: 2007 Vicious Cycles Motivator 29er steel SS w/ Eccentric Bottom Bracket
Geometry: Stock XL size with a few tweaks here and there
Fork: 2007 Vicious Cycles rigid fork
Headset: Chris King 1 1/8" in black
Stem: Thomson X4 stem in black (120mm x 0deg)
Handlebars: Race Face Next SL carbon bars
Brakes: '07 Shimano XTR disc brakes (thanks Tim!)
Grips: Ergon GC2 grips w/ bar ends (thanks Jeff!)
Bottom Bracket: Shimano Dura Ace
Crankset: Shimano LX 2-piece crank
Chainring: Salsa 34t
Pedals: Shimano 959
Seatpost: Moots Ti
Saddle: Fi'zi:k Nisene saddle
Cages: Cussi Elite cages
Waterbottles: BKB issue
Rear Cogs: Surly 20t
Tires: Maxxis Ignitor or Crossmark

Current weight = 23.8 lbs

It was hovering around 25.5 lbs right before the Mavics came along. Ride characteristics coming soon. All I can say is the bike rolls so fast right now. I'm stoked! Thank You Aaron and Carl.
