    Ok, I'm gonna ask what everyone is thinking. How much did this all cost you? Tax included.

    I am riding for the local Trek Store this season so there are some perks to that, and I get most of my parts at cost so......a little more than half of what it could have for the build......I should add that this is my 3rd dh bike in a year, so I move frames and parts around pretty well while they are still in GOOD shape.....

    Very nice but in my book its an almost 34 pound bike because the Hans Dampf's are not DH tires and are quite light...which is why I'm rockin a set on my DH bike but truthfully I'd never claim my bike @ 34 lbs(which it is) to be DH ready because of the tires.
    So my aluminum sled is nearly 36 lbs in full DH mode but that includes dual chain rings, front deraileur, KS adjustable seatpost, Specialized computer, and GPS and camera mounts, and DUAL bash guards - but no bottle holder .

    Official DH bike weights should taken with 2.5" double ply Minions as the constant.
    Keep the Country country.

    I was tempted to run a set of Minions or even a Minion DHF and a HRII in the rear, but I tried so Highrollers on my 6" bike and just can't get with the SKINNY TIRES!!!! Schwalbes are fat like my................gut so I dig em!

    The Hans Dampfs are just for training when it dries, the MM's are my go to's, the Wicked Wills are awesome for the real dry stuff. As a side note I raced on UST MM's last season and they always held up, so yeah now I am screwed for saying that I know.

    In my couple of DH runs on Tuesday that was the feeling I had exactly, as crazy as this sounds it was like a Plush Hardtail if that makes sense to anyone....
