Scalpel- Episode 2.

The bike came with Juicy Ultimate brakes. You can find lighter systems on the market, but I think these are the one of the best performance/weight brakes on the market. I did some tune on and I cut down 63 grams from the system's weight without do any weakness in it.
-first of all, I changed the original G2 rotors for Hope floating one. It saved 32 grams. 
-I changed the original steel rotor bolts and caliper bolts for Ti bolts. 9 grams saving....
-And finally I cut out the adapters middle section, which bits aren't important. 12 grams saving.....

Original front and rear break without discs.

The new setup:
