Stanton Bikes Switch9er Ti, latest setup

Stanton Bikes Switch9er Ti, size 18. I replaced the rims, tyres, seatpost, saddle, stem, handlebar, and crankset. Total weight is 12.5kg.
  • Rims
    DT Swiss XM481. I wanted to try wider tyres. Under Stan's Notubes "WideRight" concept, I chose 30mm inner width rims for 65-622 tyres.
  • Tyres
    Schwalbe Hans Dampf for front and Nobby Nic for rear, both 65-622 and Addix Speedgrip. Thanks to APEX reinforcement in the sidewall, I haven't experienced any pinch flat.
  • Seatpost & Saddle
    SDG I-Beam ALLOY MICRO 2014, lighter than Thomson Elite. I know Thomson is the best but the setup of I-Beam seatpost and saddle is lighter.
    Why no dropper post? Because I don't need it. I rode in a few months with Brand-X Ascend II post and I found that dropper didn't give me enough benefit for the weight penalty. Everybody doesn't understand this but it's okay, it's just a matter of preference.
  • Stem & Handlebar
    Race Face Turbine R 35 and Next R 35.
    Renthal bar is good but the colourway doesn't match my taste very much.
    Actually, the stem is Easton(corrupted by Race Face) Haven 35 and the bar is SixC 35. The differences are only the labels.
  • Crankset
    The Rotor R-Hawk looked so nice and I liked it but it started creaking after a few average rides. And it's a bit heavy and supposed to be overpowered for my use.
    Hopetech Crankset is 645g with 30T ring, a bit lighter than the predecessor(711g). I also like the appearance(someone doesn't).
    I don't know why, but the name of the crankset is just "Crankset". It has no special name like "Pro4" or "Tech 3 E4". Hopetech product naming seems to be based on general nouns.
