    Flash 1 =

    Flash 2 =

    Thanks

    i have the 2011 flash carbon 3. the bike shop weighed it and it was 24 lbs even. i have not done much upgrading to it besides a carbon seat post but i'm sure the flash 3 is capable of losing quite a bit of weight.

    2011 Flash 29'r Carbon 2, out of the box, no pedals:
    just under 23 pounds.
    I don't know much about carbon so will be trying to break it before the CCP100. Probably won't get any lighter, put Titec J-bars on, done weighing things. Rear derailler hanger is a bit delicate. Lefty PBR ROCKS!
    Didn't think carbon frame would be so....FAST.

    Look where you want to go, not where you don't want to go.

    Which frame, my Aluminum (doubt you mean this one), the carbon frame, or the Hi-Mod Carbon Frame? They have made all three.
