    "Big Bertha"

    Ok, she was basically a good kid but something went wrong. She got into the medicine locker at Arnolds Fitness Farm and OD'd on steroids of all things. Anyhow, she used to be known as Bertha but ever since the steroid incident her beard started growning and her muscles buldged she has been known as "Big Bertha". Well, here she is in all her glory at a svelte 39.78lbs. She likes it dirty and rough so not for the faint of heart.

    Thanks Alan

    She's a tank as pictured because that Marzocchi 66 Light is almost 7lbs and then I have a reasonably heavy duty wheelset with Mavic EX823 tubeless rims with Hope Pro2 hubs wrapped in super heavy Michelin DH24rear and DH16front tires. The tires and the fork are what make this bike so heavy but it is ready for the sharp rocks in the Sierra's. I have never flatted one of these Michelin DH tires. The bike also has a 700lb Fox spring for that DHX and that is one heavy spring. A Ti spring would take at least a pound off. Although heavy in its' present build, this is one plush riding bike.

    Wow, that seat angle is quite a bit slacker than on my Evo ?
    Is that an '06 ?

    Seat angle

    No, it is a 2007 Med/Lg FR model. It does have a very slack seat angle which makes it less than ideal for climbing but awesome for going downhill. That is why I finally built it up burly and am just using it for gravity riding for the most part. I have a Blur LT2 that I use as my all-mountain trailbike. I hope to upgrade to the later design Evo in the near future.
