    Lightest Sur-ron?

    Looking at the warp9 website I see a bunch of titanium options. Plus the guys over sea's selling after market frames and swing arms. Got me thinking has anyone got there Sur-ron lighter? Anyone under 110lbs?

    Un bon régime parfois est suffisant, il suffit de surveiller son alimentation !
    Plus sérieusement, je ne vois pas ce que cela changerait de perdre 3 ou même 5 kilos avec un Sur Ron, du moins sur la route ou en ville.
    Mais peut-être qu'en tout terrain cela peut avoir une incidence ...

      I am doing the diet thing too, hopefully drop another 10 kilos in the next couple months.

      Rode a stock surron on the trails yesterday and damn i forgot how much fun a light and nimble bike was.

      In a quest for less lbs. I ordered front and back k990 90/100-18" and 70/100-21" tires. Also going to swap out the metal rim lock with a plastic one. Doing some rough math on what some websites say the tires weigh this should knock off 3-5lbs of rotating mass. Also been trying to find if there is a lighter mx 420 chain I can swap too.

        Called and talked to RK chains out of Oceanside CA. lightest 420 chain they sell is:

        420MRU @ 1.74lbs per 100links.
        And
        420MXZ @ 1.8lb per 100links

        Looking on amazon the cheapest RK Racing chain:
        M420 @ 1.6lbs per 100links.

          Pointless idea. How much weight would you , swaping front fork to a fixed non suspension, and rear shock to fixed aluminum pipe. Like a hard tail bike. Probably respoke wheels to MTB rims/set up...

          Got eBay carbon fiber handlebar with weights by hand feels 1/2 too 3/5 the weight of stock surron bar... but went for something pretty
