    I haven't weighed my sentinel but it is for sure 35ish with alloy everything and a burly rear tire. I figure I am north of 200 and can lug around an extra couple pounds of bike weight to be able to plow over everything. It does feel quite a bit quicker with the trail boss/DHF tires replacing the Hans Damf/ Magic mary

    My Stache hardtail is 27.5#. My Hightower is just over 30#. I'm becoming a wuss. I mainly choose the Stache because the weight is so much more noticeable on the climbs (where I'm spending the majority of my time). I was trying to figure out last night where to lose 2# on the HT but I'm coming up short. :-/ First world problems...

    carbon cranks.... spendy but you can shed real weight at no performance loss... until they break...
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    Switching my RSD Middle Child from 27.5+ mode to 29er. Swapped Cane Creek Helm Air 27.5 for Fox 36 GRIP2 29, both set at 160mm, but might drop to 150mm. Wheels were Ibis 738 with Rekon 2.8 and now Race Face Turbine R 29 with Schwalbe Nobby Nic/Hans Dampf 29x2.6.

    I have SixC carbon cranks on there I got from Toast and carbon wheels I got from smmokkan. Carbon bars too. :-/ I'm coming to grips with the fact that I probably just need to get stronger. :-)

    What have you bought/upgraded today.

    Intense T275 Carbon size large. Carbon cranks, carbon bars, Chinese carbon wheels on DT350s. XX1 11speed, 1000g tires and I can get it below 28#

    I keep thinking that I should be able to get down to 28# also. General build is:

    Hightower "C" size L
    SixC cranks
    Reynolds TR309 wheels
    e*thirteen 9-46 cassette
    DHF/Aggressor 2.5 (probably overkill)
    Carbon bars
    Carbon Lev dropper
    Manitou Mattoc
    DPS rear shock (not a piggy)
    XT shifter and RD

    My wife's Tallboy 1 with similar parts is coming in at 29#, so maybe my Amazon luggage scale is off?

    Didnít have to pay for them, but I did design them. As part of my engineering masters program this spring we partnered with a company called Impossible Objects, theyíre pioneering carbon fiber composite 3D printing. These are a carbon fiber and PEEK composite material - should hopefully be pretty indestructible (PEEK is a plastic thatís super high strength, used to replace metal in a lot of engineering applications).

    Flat pedals, concave side to side and front to back. About 18mm thick, Should be sub 400g. Iíll post some installed pictures once I get them and install the spikes and axle and put them on the bike. Fun project

    I just got new wheel bearings front and rear. It made SUCH a difference. Bike is rolling so much smoother. Itís one of those things that wears out gradually and slowly so you donít really notice until you replace them. Huge difference.

    Such a fun bike, wish I could justify one!
    I'll second the "try it, before you fork it" recommendation. It's such a fun bike.

    That's really cool. What are you using for spindles? Just pulling apart someone else's pedal?

    Meet my purple dinosaur- 29+ is sooo fun! I use mine as a 1 bike quiver.

    Finally out of the stone age with a new whip. Haven't had a new MTB in about 9 years. Was sold on another Pivot but checked out a local company instead and couldn't say no. Revel Rascal in almost Dentist level build.

    Post-script: I broke my new carbon front wheel second day out. Lost traction just before a creek gap, I cleared the gap, but my bike didn't. Broken spoke and rim sidewall damage. Happened Sunday, pics submitted Monday afternoon, new wheel shipped out Wednesday morning. They want me to send the old wheel back, but nice to get the new one on the way so fast.

    Bontrager apparently is releasing an updated Line Pro 30, which they are sending me. Pretty sweet. I think the first gen (which I broke) had some durability issues. Perhaps proving the adage of light, cheap, strong...choose two...

    New rubber too. Trying the dual compound DHR2 in back, standard DHF up front.

    STOKED



    Oh, and I've got a set of Stan's Flow MK3 with DHF/DHR2 coming to market soon

    Yeah, designed around the fooker (race face Chester copies) pedalsí axles from amazon. Pedals are cheap, and the axles use a solid 3 bearing setup which is nice.
