what montain bike Aug 2010 issue

I bought a Yeti ARC frame and was thinking of moving to hardtail reasons are lighter, reduce risk of injure but before I build it accidents happened to me and I broke my collar bone. Doctor and chinese medical hall said I need to rest up to 3 months.

15 August I have fully transferred all my parts over from AM to Hardtail. Will be cutting down on kiara and wanna do more road and cross country with PCC and HASH.

Below are some R and D of how to reduce further weight from my YETI.


G3 came in at 104g with 13g of bolts
Cleansweep X was 97g with 7g of bolts
hope floating disc 6" 92g without bolts
SCRUB rotor 160mm 56g SGD220 per piece
