    Its looking good man. I have the same bike but have a 888 and Rocco, white ODI ruffians, white stock rims...pretty much the stock kit build with Thomson seatpost, Diety seat post collar, Deity Dirty Thirty bars (cut to 28"), White ODI Ruffians. I got my first decent ride on it on Saturday and it was beautiful...waiting to get some good riding time this Saturday too. Enjoy it man!

    Mine started as that same bike, but I swapped the parts with new ones and ones off my old bike. My old bike has the 888, wheels and brakes.

    I have to say, the DHX felt better immediately compared to the ROCO.

    What does yours weigh in at? Mine right now with the tires and tubes is a hefty 45 lbs I think...so I am kind of wondering where I can cut back a little. Forcing my legs in the meantime to push the weight around is good, but when I finally enter a couple races it would be nice to drop a couple pounds.

    Mine is right at 44 with all the chainstay wraps and pedals. I think I'll lose 1/2-1 pound switching tires honestly. I have a Nokian 2.5 up front and that thing is HEAVY. I'm going to run 2.35 Kenda Excavators front and rear. I have a 2.5 Excavator on order too in case I don't like the 2.35.

    Keep in mind I changed nearly everything, but that was the plan when I bought it, I had all the parts ahead of time. I just got a great deal on the whole bike.

    Switching from the Roco to the DHX dropped 0.2 pounds actually. That 888 you have is a decent fork, but its at least a pound heavier than the Fox 40.
    Those wheels are actually pretty heavy too, they're not actually Sun Ringle' hubs. I weighed them, they came in around 2350 I believe without rim strips. A normal set of STR8s (similar rim to the equalizer) goes around 2100 grams.

    I'd suggest the tires first, then the DHX down the road. Maybe different wheels. Otherwise I'd just ride it and replace what brakes as you need it.

    Yeah sounds good...I'm just pumped to have the bike...its fun to ride, its smooth and plush. I also can't complain since I got it for $2K. It'll also make me appreciate the upgrades along the way when I make them. Thanks for the info on the weight, tires and shock, I appreciate the help. Cheers!

    I changed tires and saved an entire pound! I went with Excavator 2.5/2.35 combo right away. I figured the small weight gain would be worth the extra traction of the 2.5.

    That thing is sick looking...1 lb of weight is a definite plus. I still have the 2.7/2.5 Nevegals and they probably aren't the best option, but I'll wear them down a bit more and pick up a set of something else once I get to racing a bit more. I took it out for a good ride this past Saturday and was very very happy with the bike overall. There are pictures from Pacifica in the DH/FR forum you might have seen. The bike definitely sucks up the bumps. I was definitely sweating on the hikes and pedals uphill but its worth it. Looking good though man and keep me updated on any other changes as I'm curious how everything goes with your bike as I slooowly upgrade mine. Cheers.

    Pretty snazy paint job, all that just to match the boxxer?

    No big upgrades, new seat post. Believe it or not, that saved 1/4 pound!

    I think I'm going to change to an integrated stem. I also have a 11-32 casette, I'm going to change it to 11-26. My shifter was messed up for Angel Fire and I could only get 1/2 the range. I set it to the bottom half and didn't even notice not having the easy gears.

    Here's a shot from my race run

    Nice picture from the race. I actually changed from an 11-21 to an 11-32 so I could climb a bit more with it. Kept the 38 up front and I am loving it but I'm not as worried about weight much either.

    I would definitely go with an integrated stem. I have one on my 888 and really like it. I know somebody who just got the Point One Racing - Split Second Stem for his 40 and he was really pumped.
