    Weigh it. On paper it's a touch over 7 lbs as you have it sitting w/ the carbon arch. Confirm it plz.

    Nice. I've had my eyes on these and I'm looking forward to your impression.

    On a Dorado now, which I quite like, but thinking about an Undead/Emerald build.

    Would definitely like to see the weight on that bad boy. Regardless, your bike is going to be BAD ASS!

    The Emeralds we received at GO-RIDE.com were about 7.7 lbs with axle and full length steer tube. I will say they feel absolutely stiction free right out of the box which is something no other current DH fork can say.

    I took a few laps on one at Bootleg Canyon (on the bike pictured on DVOs website). The Emerald was very very good. It was truly impressive how it ate up Bootleg chop without diving in corners and tracked incredibly straight.
