    im guessing right around 35lbs or lighter since he doesnt have that many heavy parts on the bike. its just the beefy frame thats costing the weight

    I am not really sure about weight I guess it is around 35lbs region. Could be heavier or lighter.

    I use it for trail riding......AM/LightFR/DH. Only use it for few rides and alot more rides to go. It really boost up my confidence riding it. Very smooth and sweet, able to go through ruts and rocks with ease.

    Really happy with the ride, never fail to impress me..... thanks to the people here who share their feedbacks on Versus

    You should start your own post showing the bike build.

    Blitz 2 Build

    I finally had a chance to pick up the bike from the shop. The frame was faced and chased. (Quick shout out to www.WrenchScience.com for doing an incredible job, as always.) The the CK headset and Zoke 66 were installed.

    The pic below shows bike with frame, fork, wheels, seat/post, and bar. Weight as stands: 32.31 pounds. Looking good!

    However, I went ahead and weighed all the components and totalled everything up. Total expected weight: 40.27 pounds. Not bad!

    Yup, RobsterCraw was right. Ain't no 36-pound bike here.

    But still, this is a flat-out pimpin' ride. DH wheels, tires, and tubes. Monster-fraking fork.

    My wife's previous FR bike, a Yeti AS-X with a Zoke 66, is almost 42 pounds, and that's with a 2.35 tire on the back-side.

    So the bike's a bit heavier than expect. But that's ok.

    A friend built up a Blitz 2 a week or so ago. He used Sram X.0 components and a Gamut single-ring. His Blitz was around 38 pounds.

    The Yeti, btw, is for sale:

    http://www.pacificafreeride.com/copp...s.php?album=45
    http://www.pacificafreeride.com/smf/index.php?topic=8.0

    If anyone's interested, the wheel base on the new Blitz is 44 inches. Very similar to the AS-X.

    The bottombracket height is less than 13.75 inches. The bbh on the Yeti is almost 15 inches.

    I should have more pics this weekend.

    Whenever you order from PricePoint, they send you a couple Sette stickers, along with the PP stickers. And, um, stickers rock.

    One more shout out to Phil at www.rideSFO.com for setting me up with the frame and fork.

    switched at birth?

    Yo bpatterson6,

    My wife's other ride:

    > DH9 build thread

    The DH-9 and the Blitz are remarkably similar.

    38.83 pounds. Ordered a post-mount adaptor for the front brake and another Flak Jacket for the front derailler.

    So far, the rear shifting is super smooth. The carbon fiber cranks and external bearings are really nice.

    Be a few more days before the parts come in to complete the bike.

    Add the front derailler and front shifter, and it's ready to ride.

    black vs white

    Here is the white small (I think) w/ the 36. (Coil it & trash the front D @ ~ 35#s seems useless. Why not run it w/ 32 x 34 ? lighter & simpler ) White rims are nioce too. Wish we had more choices in colored rims. Kind of cool.

    The SDG saddle and post look insane together. Are they that much lighter than a Thomson & SDG combo ?

    Also, why choose XT over Hone on the crank choice ? I'm going Hone and blacking it out. Like a DRS ad.

    a 35lb bike is easier to pedal uphill with a small ring, and then you can get a bigger middle ring for more speed on downhill / flat. I like 24t & 36t combo that comes on some Truvativ cranks alot for "All mountain." It is true you can still pedal a 35lb bike up just about any moderate hill in 32x34, but it is gonna hurt more and you can't go up really steep stuff as well.
    I guess it really come down to whether you want to be able to climb in the saddle, or out of the saddle / push.
