So I picked up a bunch of new stuff since my last bike check.
Frame: Eastern element
Bars: Tree hot bars
Bar ends: Tree bar ends They thread directly into the bars which is pretty cool.

Front rim: DK stock rim
Back rim: Poverty spare
Front tire: Fit something or another
Back tire: Animal GLH
Forks: DK stock
Stem: Salt
Headset: Cane creek integrated
Grips: ODI longnecks
Cranks: Eastern shaft
Pedals: Animal Hamilton plastic
Sprocket: Eastern Medusa
Chain: Purple KHC
Seat: DK
Brakes: Went breakless and never looking back.

Weight I'm guessing is around 23-24lbs. I just weighed it, and a surprising, 22.3 lbs. And that's with a stock fork, rim and DK bundy pegs.

Looks sick man, hell yea brakeless ftw! Hmm, I dont know how your bike is 22 pounds. Mines around the 23-22 pound range, and I have a pivotal seat, and some lighter parts.


But I love your bike Very Happy

Now go learn some sick stuff.

I'd re-weigh your bike. I looked up your bike check and yours would have to be lighter than mine. I used a digital scale, so mine is perfect. I'm guessing your Tierra would be anywhere from high 19-low 21.

Thanks for the compliments guys! Very Happy

Lookin' good Vista. Looks street as.

To add to this weight debate, my bikes 10.8kg's which equals to about 23ish pounds, and I've got some light stuff on there.

The issue with weighing a bike on a standard scale is that when you step on, your foot position can vary the weight. My digital scale can vary the weight of myself by about 5lb, and thats just getting on and off, then back on. I usually weigh a couple of times and average them for my bike.

The thing is, I had weighed at Spin. My local bike shop. They tested 20lb and 25lb weights to make sure it was working correctly. My bike is exactly 22.3 lbs.

Have you put more tape on to hold your seat in yet? or is it still flying around on the half-inch of seatpost left?

I pulled out my wallet and payed a whole $1.99 for some purple duct tape and re-did it. The seat is very firm. I might need some lighter tape though. It might be a whole ounce lighter than the duct tape I'm using now.

I'd suggest getting the eclat complex pc seat, you have to search eclat complex on dans to find it
then obiviously get rid of the stock parts

My friend has the Eclat plastic seat. I could get it for free from him if I really wanted it. He cut his leg pretty bad on it and ever since it has been collecting dust. The same reason he got rid of his $100 fly ruben pedals for $20. If a part hurts him, he takes revenge by selling it cheap or giving it away.

We already pressure him. All he does is ride in circles while we do stuff. On his $700 bike with $700 in it.
