    Classic wheel set.

    Sweet build.

    Had them built by Stiff 4 years ago, gave them the once over after a month or so, havent touched them since. Tempted to build up a lighter wheelset for trail centres, XM719's, would be interesting to see how long they last.

    Going to see if I can get the weight down as close to 31lbs as possible. SHould chop a couple of pounds off with a different bar/stem, magnesium pedals, ti spring, smaller rear disk, gamut chain guide.

    Bit of an update.

    -Ditched the E13 as it didn't fit, picked up a gamut. Raceface bar and stem are out in favour of EA70's and a thompson stem.
    -The bel air was ruined after a couple of crashes in france, so its been replaced with a not very padded and quite thin SDG FLY RL.
    -My four year old juicys have been replaced with replaced with some Elixirs, same power but with smaller discs.
    -Atomlabs Trailpimps finally died, picked up a set of Kona Wah Wah's, very good pedals, super thin, light and loads of grip
    -Drivetrain was replaced, managed to pick up a mech and shifter for a good price.

    As for weight, its at 33lbs. Single ply tyres, dh wheelset and a steel shock spring. It rides well as it is, shock and fork could do with a service and then its finished.
