Still bog standard at the mo, but changes will begin soon.
Never even had time to ride it, this time home... Too busy :(

Aplogies for poor iphone pic! Didn't realise it was that bad, until I uploaded it :oops:

Very nice, I have always liked the Scale. I bought one back in 2007, my 1st carbon HT, like a d!ck I sold it for a full susser.

This was mine

Image

I didn't change much on it, Just put a carbon seatpost and a set of carbon risers, the riding position with a flat bar murdered my back! It was a light and quick bike!

I'll be upgrading the seat post, clamp, bars and stem to carbon jobbies, soo. Probably Ritchey Superlogic.
Then there are a few other bits to be visited. All replaced kit will go to my old Giant NRS 1...

Don't bother with a carbon stem, heavy. If you're spending that sort of money check out New Ultimate - I used to be the distributor and it's really nice kit. My 100mm stem weighs 102g IIRC. Just buy from Europe, the UK distro charges silly points.

I actually found that pretty funny!

The seatstays look VERY skinny though!

So you've fitted ti bolts and uber light skewers (good choice on the Mt Zoom ones), then added lock on grips which add over 100g over foam!

They look like an interesting alternative...

Been out, briefly, but on the other wheels. Just can't seem to find the time to ride for fun! It's just road bike at mo, hopefully get out proper on Friday :cry:

The weather isnt helping! Im sure you will love it! Hope the tubeless works well! Ive been dogged with thorn punctures recently as a new route ive found consists of a 5 mile stretch alongside hedgerow. Serously considering Stans!

Oh and the ESI have been great for me. I got em because of the weight but mostly because ive got a knackered wrist. They really do take the sting out of the trail!

Nice choice

I had Scale 20 for about a year. You can make them pretty light. Think i got mine down to 9.5kgs.
