Now I am pretty big time ya know, but one company that doesn't support the "Charly Tri" brand name is Surly. So in order to stick it to the man I drilled out my own rims, moving the valve hole to the rim joint. Out of curiosity I weighed one of the rims; 800 grams. Take that Surly you oppressive bastards!
Just in case there is any confusion, I labeled the top tube with one of those fancy name sticker jobbies.
So if you want some gear details, I made sure my seat/handlebars/stem were my favorite stuff (Bontrager). I run 80mm rims, a great compromise between the big float when I need it and lighter weight when I don't. Race Face cranks. I run tape on the bars to protect the carbon when the sleeping bag is strapped on. 1x10 set up with a 32 front ring and a sram converted thumb shifter. All the bags and such were taking off for some fun today.
