    Blitz II for the New Year

    Went to Versus to pick up the Blitz II frame & found Herb hard at work assembling the rear linkage, checking needle bearings, zerk fittings and double checking welds and 25 other things on his list for a consistent inspection process. If you are not familiar with Versus, they take great pride in quality products; every frame gets Herb’s personal attention – not bad knowing the Boss actually works on the product you ride! Vivian (the “Goddess”) not only takes all the orders but orchestrates everything going on in order to keep the customer service top notch and the shop clean. Versus does all its own designing, development and testing – on the trails and in competition – constantly striving to make our riding experience more enjoyable. If a test rider wants to try something different, Herb can make many parts in-house on the CNC machine instead of contracting out to a machine shop.

    Now for the sweet part – check out all the beautifully CNC’ed parts on the frame – sexy, functional and solid. The new black is painted a deep blue (almost matte black) with a hint of purple depending on sun angles. The frame is sitting in my living room nice and cozy warm waiting for the rest of the parts to do the full build. Dang, I’m jonesin’, can’t wait to build “n” ride, the New Year is looking mighty sweet!

    There were some questions on frame weight on other post so i weighed it on 2 scales.

    Blitz II medium frame weight with Fox DHX5.0

    On our digital FedEx scale it weighed in at 10lb solid.
    On our analog package scale it was a tad over 11lb.

    Take your pick, you can round it out & say it can weight between 10.5 & 11.25 pounds depending. You can pretty much figure that any part you buy is going to have a +/- variable to it. On something like a frame i feel it can be as much as 1 pound because of the manufacturing tolerances.

    That is going to be a contaversey for a little while. Both can be calibrated. Personally i like the good oll anilog, but many people growing up today cant read anilog because they have digital cramed into there heads. Digital will win in the end because it is easier to read.
