    Blitz II Assembled to Ride, Couldn't Wait

    Couldn't wait to ride any longer so i swapped the parts from the old to the new Blitz. The new Blitz II is now assembled & ready to ride finally. The old Sherman FireFly is as rigid as ever & refuses to to do much work still. Really looking forward to getting the Fox Van 36 to compliment the awesome frame.

    I don't think the weight's gonna drop more than a lb. or so with the 36 since the firefly / flick's are pretty reasonable in weight.

    Nice choice on fork, btw.....I love mine and it's a Talas, not the Van. Two buddies with the Van and they LOVE it!!

    C'mon dog...weigh that piece of pig iron...LOL! I know those grease zerks and needle bearings had to add an extra 5lbs. Hey, did you weight the bare frame and shock before you built it?...I may have missed it. I still love those beefy needle bearings. Very good looking rig. You'll love the Van 36.

    Frame & shock weighed in at 11.22lb.

    With the swapping of the old parts it came in at 40.35lb.

    It will be going on a diet, shooting for 35lb.

    Found out the BB was dead last weekend, put a new one in today. For a 40 pound bike it pedals dang good up hill.

    People have gone over how much weight you would save by putting assorted gases in your tubes. It's a couple of grams. You'd be better off just cleaning your bike.
