    You guys running the lightweight air suspension on your DH rigs...are you noticing a decrease in performance? Are your shocks heating up on long runs? I'm just curious. Never really thought of running anything but coil for DH personally, but the new generation of air shocks/forks have me intrigued.

    There are several CCDB Airs and Rockshox World Cups in this thread, among others. How do you think those super light rigs happened? Some of those are 34 pound DH rigs. They're not rocking coils.

    I guess I'll play. Been building up this slightly used frame with mostly spare parts I had lying around. I'm waiting on my new cranks to come in, but right now it's 35.12 lbs. I ordered some Truvativ Descendants and an e.13 guide ring. Assuming the weights are correct below and the manufacturer's weight for the pedals is correct, I should be right around 37.6-37.8 or so when it's finished. It's a large Specialized Status 1. We'll see if I'm right next week. :p





    Crank Weight (Technically mine should actually be lighter with 73mm BB/spindle)
    Ring Weight

    I don't really care all that much because it's a downhill bike, but it's fun to speculate. Under 38 isn't bad with some midrange steel coil suspension and heavy, stout wheels with steel rear axle. I could easily build this up lighter if I wanted to, but I [personally] think this is a good mix of price/performance and weight/durability. If I was racing I might feel different, but this is just my play bike. :)

    Rockshox Domain RC tapered fork
    FSA Orbit Extreme Pro headset (reducer upper, 1.5 lower)
    Black Market Underboss stem

    My TR250 build ended out to be 17.08kg/37,65lbs in the end.

    Should be starting on an Aurum build soon, should be around the same weight, but the Boxxer WC will save some I think, will also go for some lighter tyres and the frame might also be a bit lighter than the TR250.

    Thanks, Ryan.

    Those are actually those thick 3-ring binder covers. You can also get the same material from Tap plastics. I just designed and cut. But I'm going to make a new batch following this design:

    ^Nice Todd. Here's pics of the beast that I never bring to Maui for the winter, maybe next year.
    Sorry, having issues posting from my phone so you gotta click the links. DH weight is 31.5lb as seen on the scale. That's with 2.7" tires and a biggish seat so another 3/4lb could come off and still be totally DH worthy. I'm told it's the lightest DH bike with all DH parts as no one who's seen it has seen a lighter bike that didn't cut a corner and use something you wouldn't want to put a season of downhilling on. I rode and raced it all last season like this with no mechanicals or flats. During non-resort season I put on some spare 2.5" EXO tires, a smaller chainring, and dropper post and it gets just under 30lb. I've used it for 25-30mi trail rides in that configuration.

    man, after reading all these weights, i think my bike is still one of the top for being most heavy. haha. as someone else mentioned, i am actually surprised with the weights of most of the bikes, a lot heavier than i expected.

    anyway, last time i weighed out my bike, it was a smidgen under 49lbs. EEK! it sure does feel solid on the trails though.

    Nice Leland...that weight on the DHR is with EXO tires, it was just over 39 for the Whistler trip with 2 ply 2.5" DH Minions. I've yet to try it with the 823/Hadley tubeless setup. It pedals ok (nowhere near as well as the Highline) but can't take a full length post.

    Bike looks really good man! I had a 2009 Atomik and that bike weighed 42.7 lbs. But it rode like a Caddy on the chop, and that's all that mattered. =)

    Thanks bro! actually now that i think about it. i stand corrected. i think factory weight of the atomik with super T forks came in around 45lbs. i know i shaved a couple hundred grams with the pedals and the rest of the minor things. haha. i think i meant to say a smidgen under 45! still a tank..... and as you mentioned, rides like a damn caddy. plows through anything that gets in your way.

    i wont lie though, id still be a little happier with a ~30lb DH. its the hike-a-bikes that kill me with this Norco. As long as there is a shuttle. or a ski lift, im happy. haha.

    edit: Confirmed, my bike was like 44.5lbs. Snow Summit, local ski lift park, has a 45lb limit (or so they say) and i know i just barely beat that. haha
