    Didn't MBA review that a few months back? 35 pounds if I recall. But Brent Foes is no dummy. He knows that to build a bike that will take hard hits you must use sturdy components. You've noticed that the latest craze is air shocks for FR/DH. Why doesn't Foes use them on their FR/DH bikes?

    Not to mention how steep the head tube angle would be with a Sid. Would be pretty funny though, if not at all functional.

    I put a Judy SL on my co-workers RM7 when he was gone for the weekend. Used one of those 6" rise cruiser stems on it, too. Fortunately, he also thought it was funny.

    You have to be kidding, surely. A Gemini that weighs only 30.5lbs? The ones I've seen have been mid to upper thirties.

    for the same reason people will spend $$$$ to "upgrade" their bike when more saddle time would make them faster, better at all fundamental aspects of cycling, and less likely to think the problem is the equipment (rather than the rider)

    for the same reason people would own a gigantic SUV and drive it on pavement

    The Gemini is a light frame only arround 7.5 lbs the,RP3 is one of the lightest shocks around and that alone saved 1.5 lbs the forkes saved another 1 3/4 lbs the crank set another. the tyres and xc tubes saved 2lbs and the wheels another pound
    all of a suden a 37 lb bike is hovering arround the 30 lb ish mark (on my bathroom scales)

    And as to why !
    Last year i fractured my spine on a huge drop to a ladder, i stoped being quite as Downhill freeride oriented and wanted a more pedal freindly machine after the accident.i had most of the parts any way so why not.it was a lot cheaper than buying a new Prophet.

    She's a great ride and really quite nimble the shock is pushed and very active but with the propedal it can be turned on to give a firm platform to climb, its a versatile machine,and i think very All mountain.
