My new to me Sette Reken!

Here is the completed project from this weekend.

Bike Specs
Manufacturer / Model - Sette / Reken
Frame and Size - 16"
Fork and Headset - RockShox Judy XC
Handlebars / Stem / Grips - Bontrager / Azonic / Sette
Saddle / Seatpost - Redline CR-MO / Unknown Seatpost Brand
Cassette - SRAM 8 Speed
Chain - SRAM
Crank Set / Bottom Bracket - Race Face Ride XC X Type / Race Face
Rear Derailleur - SRAM X4
Shifters - SRAM X4
Pedals - Ritchey Whiteface SPD
Brakes / Brake Levers - Hayes HFX Nines / Delta Cycle Aztec Stainless Discs/ Hayes HFX Nines Levers
Wheelset - WTB Speed Disc's
Tires - Specialized 26x2.20 / Kenda 26x2.10
Probably a few other things I've forgotten.

Took it on a maiden voyage today. Put close to 3 miles on it. I need to get a front deraileur for it, install the other SRAM x4 shifter, and fix the stiff head tube.

It rides great and is decently light. I plan to get a full carbon stem, riser bars, and seat bar this winter when my bike friend puts his order in to China.

Pics below.
Pics taken with my cell so bare with me. I'll get better ones later.

Nice. But no carbon fiber stem. That's just such a bad idea.

Ok. Care to elaborate? I mean I just saw a whole kit for 60ish in my buddy's wholesale book from china. I did see a pretty sweet Raceface stem I wouldn't mind having that matched the bike too!

Also I weighed the bike on the bathroom scales last night without the seat bag and extra bottle cage. 28.8lbs, I do plan on changing the bars and seat post, and possibly stem. You think that would shed a lb or two if I went carbon bars and seat post.

You don't want to play weight weenie with your MTB. If your bike is too heavy, look for a lighter wheelset, or a fork with air cartridge. Yes, that can be pricey, but so can new dental work, or a broken seatpost through your lower anatomy.

When I crash my bike, I get up and do it again. I don't worry about parts failing.

I am going to be looking for a lighter fork. This one was just what I had laying around from the GT bike. That fork is a 2002ish model I believe. It's kind of a budget build so who knows what other upgrades it will get. My next bike I want is a 29'er.
