Component Deals & Selection / help!!! XT spd cleats
« Last post by voodoo320 on December 07, 2017, 08:49:47 PM »
Last night I finally decided to service my Deore XT M8000 SPD Pedal. I dis-assemble it easily  :) and re-grease the bearing insides. But the problem is when I re-installed it. When you spin it freely it has a sound popping and it feels very tight. Tried the process many times. Problem is still there  :'(. Anyone knows how or anybody service there own xt pedals and experienced like this?????

Finally bought the elliptical chainring. First impression is good. It has a 3 settings. 1st is for sprint. 2nd is normal and 3rd is for climbing. Still experimenting which setting is the best. As for the tooth clearance.... chain is always in place.

If I remember well, the clamp seems quite bad.
But it is too late to change  :D

I hope that the frame will weight MAX 1200g with headset.. if so, i will hit my target easy

My 062 frame weighed 1198 grams. That was the frame, 142x12 dropouts and the seat post clamp. Size 18.5 with the BSA threaded bottom bracket.

I'm 5'11" and the 18.5 fits great. I think you're on the right track with going 18.5.

Haha

I bet that is true !
I didnt fully understand your statement about price per weight shaved though hehe

My inseam is as well 34'' or 86,5cm.. so 18,5'' will be perfect

I calculated that the budget I will spend will be less then 2000€ (for a 7,7kg XC rocket i think that is cheap)
To be fair, some components have been and will be bought used, or auctions.


Some of the components have been bought:

Seatpost: china 27.2x400mm - 137g (will probably be cut down and tuned later on)
Brakes: Shimano XTR m987 brakes - 400g with 2Ti / 2 Alu bolts
Rotors: china Ashima copy 160/160 - 151g with 12Ti bolts
Crankset: FSA SL-K Modular 30T garbaruk  -  500g (estimate)
Rear der.: - XTR m986 rear der. - 200g (tuned)
Shifter - XTR m980 shifter - 100g
Cassette: Sram XX 11-36 - 207g


I hope that the frame will weight MAX 1200g with headset.. if so, i will hit my target easy

The weight im aiming at is around 7,7kg  8)

Definitely doable, knowing it is about $1,000€ of budget per Kg you want to shave.
Yeah go for it !

Each time I pick my ~8Kg bike, it is a small pleasure rush, like having a great tool in hand.
Expect your friends to secretly hate you :D
