dIt seems like this week sure does have a Custom Ring to it. First we started off with the S-Build, yesterday we added in Hand Built Single Speed Wheels, and today we are highlighting Tom Seiler's Customized Specialized Fat Boy Expert.
Thomson Seat Post, Carbon Handlebars and Stem, upgraded Shimano XT brakes help shed weight right out of the box
HED Carbon Wheels laced to Industry 9 Hubs with 45Nrth Husker Du's carry the bike around the road and trails.
1x10 Drivetrain provides enough gear options for all conditions and removes the Front Derailleur and Shifter and helps shed some unnecessary weight as well.
Final tally on the scale brings the bike in at 25.17 pounds. This bike stock is over 30 pounds so he removed at minimum 5 pounds and I am thinking more likely close to 10 pounds. Although weight savings won't be had you can change casing colors and the Shimano XT brakes have colored hydraulic brake lines available as well to add some bling to the bike.
MSRP of the Fatboy Expert is $2,700.00. Prices for the upgrades are as follows:
HED Big Deal Carbon Wheels: $2,400.00
Race Face Carbon Handle Bar: $185.00
Ritchie WCS Stem: $100.00
Thomson Seatpost: $90.00
Shimano XT Rear Derailleur: $200.00
Shimano XT Shifter: $50.00
Shimano XT Brakes: $375.00 (Front & Rear)
Race Face Narrow/Wide Chainring: $45.00
