find all the lightest component will do the job.

Like 28h wheelset for front and 32h for the rear

1.rectangle hole on rim
2.Aluminium bolts
3.Titanium bottom bracket
4.Titanium spokes

Nice advice @thenextbike, how much does your bike weigh? I bet your bike is very light.

Most of us here make do with what is available locally, like I use a 36H rim front and rear. But I did go for rectangular holes naughty

erm make sure your rectangular holes doesnt have right angle.make it abit round at the edges because sharp edges tend to break or crack.

I wonder how much are Titanium spokes @thenextbike? What brand are you using?

My bike is still heavy at 12kg more or less. I would like to go around 10kg on my next bike. I'm thinking of getting DT swiss or another brand for my spokes.

I will still stay on a heavy tire whatever happens hahaha.

i have read an article regarding titanium & crmo spindles.

titanium spindle will only save you 1/4lb no matter what you are told & is never as strong as the crmo spindles.

siguro sa ibang pyesa ganun din yan Very Happy

@dyani sa cartimar ko nabili ung akin noon, actually nag hoarding ako nyan dati kasi di pinapansin yan noon, mas pinapansin ung shimano DX. hanap ka ng old school na bmxer baka may naitabi pa sila nyan, yung Old school version nyan MKS ang tatak. malamang sa HK meron din nyan kasi dami flatlanders dun.
