    Do It. I'd like to outfit mine with a stout pair of 5.1's. The outlaws I have on it now are a tad heavy for trail riding.

    ASABHA (as soon as better half allows)

    New Fork (66, VAN or Float - haven't decided yet)
    5.1/King or Hadley wheelset

    Not pictured:

    50/50 pedals
    Thomson seatpost
    blackspire chainguide
    blue hope seat collar

    As pictured ~38lbs.

    I figure, I have the outlaws and 2ply tires. I'd like a stout pair of 5.1 and some singleply ~2.4s for the lighter days... Maybe Big Betty's? Yum!

    There's no way that frame is 4500gr unless you are weighing it without the rear shock. I used a UPS scale for my borrowed blitz II and it was 5443gr with an air shock.

    Mine is a size XL. It was 13.6 pounds with a Fox DHX 5 Coil, FSA Pig DH headset, and seat clamp.
