    Nice job and bike, how long is the seat post small frame for a tall person



  2. Vegard Claussen on December 6, 2022 at 12:12 am

    Did I totally miss the fact if this is a 29er or not?



  3. Mackan Neb on December 6, 2022 at 12:13 am

    Väldigt imponerande. Antar att kan man så gör man. ❤️

    👌🙌👍

    kwanta costa?



  6. martingru on December 6, 2022 at 12:16 am

    Me having 15 kg bike watching this 🤯



  7. James Courier on December 6, 2022 at 12:17 am

    I’d install a 9point8 Fall Line R dropper on this, THEN it’s my dream bike.



  8. Petr38 on December 6, 2022 at 12:17 am

    I recently bought light ebike Orbea Rise and with its 19 kg it is super planted in rough terrain. I started to realize, that weight is sometimes advantage for descents. All my bikes are carbon and I was allways wandering, why so many pro downhillers ride aluminium….



  9. Finn Williams on December 6, 2022 at 12:17 am

    6:48 no circlips on the brake pad bolts for more weight savings?



  10. Gustavo Solis on December 6, 2022 at 12:19 am

    1liter of water would make the difference…there´s a limit were if you weight some kg on your body, that your bike won´t make a big difference, besides the price to get this light is not for everyone!



  11. Aidan Ltd on December 6, 2022 at 12:19 am

    One jump and it’s done



  12. MutleyAdams Racing on December 6, 2022 at 12:20 am

    People get to see light parts for their xc bike. Some will buy this stuff!



  13. Nigel Smith on December 6, 2022 at 12:21 am

    I think 10-11kgs is plenty light enough for a cross country bike good balance between durability and weight… I used to have a 23lb Proflex 957 from the late 90’s



  14. Tristan is me 2010 on December 6, 2022 at 12:26 am

    Hi



  15. Hermann Oehling Cuesta on December 6, 2022 at 12:28 am

    Just awesome ! And very beautiful !



  16. Walter JR on December 6, 2022 at 12:28 am

    am i the only one that thinks that the scott logo on the front seems kinda familiar? you know the austrian guy



  17. Martin Mellembakken on December 6, 2022 at 12:29 am

    I wish I had a trail bike with kinda same weight i would trade 1kg to make it strong enough to do jump’s/drops with a heavy rider wearing a semi heavy backpack..



  18. Ken Engrie on December 6, 2022 at 12:29 am

    So basicly if I ride it, it falls apart. lol impressive though.



  19. Dark Chocolate on December 6, 2022 at 12:32 am

    Imagine if he falls



  20. Russ E on December 6, 2022 at 12:34 am

    Don’t let the Schmolke stuff crack or break on you, despite what you’ve heard their customer service is severely lacking when it comes to this, as is the honoring of their warranty.



  21. First Last on December 6, 2022 at 12:35 am

    Very nice I like how much



  22. Chris December on December 6, 2022 at 12:36 am

    So how much lighter is your bank account?



  23. Anthony HT on December 6, 2022 at 12:37 am

    I never understood this hurry to save every possible grams on a bicycle. There is still a human riding it in the end and not a lot of people are at 0% fat.



  24. kewsoner on December 6, 2022 at 12:37 am

    Below 8000 gram intill you spin the pedals ones and the dirty in the tires, but you way over 8000 grams



  25. I NEED MOVEMENT on December 6, 2022 at 12:38 am

    Very cool. Thanks Dangerholm.



  26. F. Nikolaus Soellner on December 6, 2022 at 12:39 am

    Is there a fully emtb with 85 Nm, 600 Kw, fenders, lights and rack below 18 kg?
    If so please let me know where to get it…



  27. Von Luhmann on December 6, 2022 at 12:40 am

    I think you didn’t even ride it. 👎🏼



  28. jorge sosa on December 6, 2022 at 12:41 am

    Any chance you can post the final price on the builds? they are fun facts



  29. クラウドシルバー on December 6, 2022 at 12:42 am

    More Like Flexing Lightest XC Bike Possible.



  30. THE WRONG GUY on December 6, 2022 at 12:44 am

    I think you are too heavy for the bike, better give it to your grandson.😁😁😁😁😁



  31. guerreroymendoza on December 6, 2022 at 12:45 am

    I had that saddle – It’s made in a factory in Portugal by a brand called Gelu. I would not recommend it for xc, I rode it on my epic and it snapped on the third day, splintering and cutting my inner leg! It’s a Smolke sticker on a Gelu saddle!



  32. Chris L on December 6, 2022 at 12:46 am

    Its beautiful!



  33. Bryant Hartwig on December 6, 2022 at 12:49 am

    The bike itself weighs 1000 times more than the bike cage



  34. Swpa 87 on December 6, 2022 at 12:49 am

    That bike is so sweet, unreal weight I can’t imagine.



  35. Robin Rai on December 6, 2022 at 12:51 am

    Now I must watch cyclingabout’s bike weight doesn’t matter video to offset the bikeporn



  36. Custom Bicycle Performance on December 6, 2022 at 12:55 am

    он даже легче чем многие хардтейлы! 👍
    НО, этот велосипед будет работать не так долго из-за очень легких компонентов. (ограниченный ресурс надежности).



  37. Ram Shaar on December 6, 2022 at 12:55 am

    Looks real good



  38. Jeff Gosztyla on December 6, 2022 at 12:58 am

    Mind numbingly amazing.



  39. Stu Cali on December 6, 2022 at 12:59 am

    Me racing that thing sounds like a death trap.
    It’s artwork but would be scary to race.



  40. Roberto Calvo on December 6, 2022 at 12:59 am

    Beautiful. If I had the monies I’d been knocking at this man’s door right now



  41. gee kane on December 6, 2022 at 1:00 am

    Ok nice light build. But not a word about the ride? At that light of a build, it might not survive on many real trails. Start cutting weight that much, we start cutting strength and functionality. I’d be worried about the cranks and post breaking right off



  42. Alessandro Chiarappa on December 6, 2022 at 1:00 am

    i would put a scott sticker on the lower tube beacouse like this it looks kind of empty



  43. Alejandro Martín on December 6, 2022 at 1:00 am

    Scott MTB 8×3 speed. Full Equipe at 5.9 kg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oIK2r6G5rY



  44. Gary Brown on December 6, 2022 at 1:02 am

    Build list would be nice



  45. Ridefree Philippines on December 6, 2022 at 1:04 am

    Where can we get the brakeset?



  46. Captain Commodore on December 6, 2022 at 1:07 am

    You can do a lighter soft tail with a redshift seatpost 😀 technically it gives you 4cm of suspension.



  47. Franco Iasillo on December 6, 2022 at 1:07 am

    awesome bro!



  48. B Mc Cameron on December 6, 2022 at 1:08 am

    I’ve dropped turds heavier than this.



  49. Johny Hewitt on December 6, 2022 at 1:09 am

    Amazing weight and an amazing price no doubt



  50. J Salmon on December 6, 2022 at 1:09 am

    First time I think Rossa Corsa may not be a worthy color!!!
