My Build/Weight Right? post #1
Hey, new here. I just did a build on staffbmx to get an idea of what my build would be. I used staff, dans, and albes to make sure my weights were correct. And I made sure to factor in the small stuff like tire tubes, and i used exact weights (didnt round off decimals). The total build came to $1066 and 21.76 lbs (348.2 oz). :eek: It seems too good to be true. Here's the build. Tell me if it sounds right.

Frame-Sputnic Satelight- 76.8 oz (4.8 lbs)
Fork-Odsy Classic race- 33 oz
Cranks/Spindle-Stolen team- 33oz
BB- Spanish (comes with frame)- 7 oz
headset- (comes with frame)- 2.2 oz
Grips- Edwins- 4 oz (just a guess)
Bars- Felt Cranmer- 22 oz
Pedals- Odsy Twisted PC- 14.5 oz
Seat- Macneil SL- 9.5 oz
Post- Stump- 3.5 oz
Seat Clamp- Shadow- .7 oz
Sprocket- Macneil Lite 25t- 2.2 oz
Stem- Odsy Elementary- 8 oz
F wheel- Odsy Vandero- 38 oz
R Wheel- Demolition Anorexia 36h- 43 oz
F tire- Odsy Path Plyte- 22 oz
R tire- Primo Comet- 21 oz
tubes- (2 of em)- 8 oz
-------------------------
21.76 lbs

So does she sound that light? And does that build in general seem pretty good for light street without going too expensive?

Well I'm trying to get it as light as I can without using titanium, because I dont want it to be anymore expensive.

But overall, the weight sounds accurate?
