    Don't know much about DH rigs, but I'd tend to say that's a damn nice looking ride and very, very respectable weight for an AM rig, farless a DH sled. Enjoy that machine to the fullest

    Hey Bob Rocket, can we get a parts list? Would love to know how you got it so light. I can see some parts that are helping but can't work out how it's that light (not at all saying I don't believe you, just interested). My Spitty is only a few pounds lighter than that!

    well, my rune is almost 37 lbs, with my dh wheelset...probly 34.5 with trail wheelset. It has coil suspension (rockshox domain 180, Elka w/out ti coil), saint 8" brakes, raceface respond cranks, answer protaper bars. Dh wheelset: Transition hubs/halo SAS rims, heavy Intense 2--ply 2.5"s. Trail wheels: hope pro 2's/mavic 823's, various lightish 2.3"-2.4" rubber. Its my only bike so its built kinda burly, when I finally get a Legend too it might lighten up. Either that, or build a light Spitfire instead and leave the Rune heavy.

    When it comes to weight weenism on a bike, it's all about the details. EVERY gram counts.

    I've never actually weighed them, but the stock posts that comes with the frames have always felt lighter than a comparable Thomson post. Any reason you chose the Thomson?
    Sick build, by the way...

    Masterpiece is still lighter than the stock post...

    took the stock post from the rune for my legend, weights ~230gr with 350mm length...
    thomson elite is slightly heavier than that, masterpiece 40gr or so less...

    sick build, and some serious money in it

    have also finished to build my legend and will make pics of it maybe this weekend... already got 3 rides on it... sick bike!!

    tho mine weights around 40 pounds...
    build is like that: legend mk2 large with RC4/steel spring
    boxxer team 2010
    old avid brakes (mix of code 5/juicy7/shimano rotors-->saint brakes will be coming soon)
    wheels are nukeproof hubs with sun mtx 29 rims and minions, with standard tubes
    thomson 50mm stem-->soon to be swapt for a direct mount stem, just because it looks better
    spike spank 777 evo bar 15mm rise
    banshee seatpost/ritchey wcs saddle
    saint crank, with saint 36t bashguard, 36t ring
    superstar components plasma chainguide-->sick looking, very light (145gr plus the bash) and for 35 pounds!!
    sram x9 shifting
    dura ace 12-27 9-speed cassette
    superstar components aluminium axle

    thats it... with swaping the spring to titanium, and new pedals (now some old chunk-->waiting for the spike spank pedals) it is still around 39#... but sooo happy with it...

    btw, my rune used to be in the 35# range as well, with a bikepark-oriented build... now a litte less than 33#, soon with RS reverb...

    As MalcolmX mentioned, I am running a Thompson Masterpiece post. From what I've found it is the lightest aluminum post out there and is still super strong.

    The weights for posts are as follows:

    Thompson Masterpiece post: 167g
    Banshee Praxxis post: 237g
    Thompson Elite post: 251g

    Wow Dean, I'm impressed. Some of those parts would be a bit on the light side for someone of my size but that is some interesting reading in your part spec.
    I should weigh mine one day...
