I've searched the last 15 pages of threads looking for something like this. I'm about to purchase a 2011 Premium Broadway frame and start building it up. I'm trying to make it light, but not too light to where I feel like it's going to snap when I land.
Any suggestions?

My first purchase will be basically just doing the front end without the wheelset.
* Forks - Odyssey Dirt Fork
* Bars - ?
* Headset - ? Does it really matter?
* Stem - ?

I'll be updating this thread

oh and for the front end to be lighter you can go with directors if your not dead set on the ones you picked theyre a bit more 4oz lighter and tank... and you dont need to worry bout bent dropouts
Shadow Conspiracy Strike FL Stem is pretty light its 8.5oz and its $57 on dans
Sputnic Integrated Headset is the lightest on dans at $21

Headsets don't matter... and I have khe anchor bars and directors, both real damn solid. Didnt get them to save weight though, just wanted to try them out. THey are pretty light too.
