Nice build, I particularly like the bar/stem combo. What is the weight of 3ttt Mutant, would you know?

thank you ! i also love the bar / stem combo, there is a glamour shot on my instagram
i did weigh it but can't remember exactly, somewhere in the neighborhood of 275-300 grams i think. the bars are pretty light though, closer to 200 grams. complete the bike is around ~18.5lbs before pedals. i have a very cool columbus muscle fork I debated using which would shave a good amount weight along with stem and wheels...slippery slope that gram shaving

no it feels ok with the 110 stem, maybe 115 would be a bit better
