    Airborne Taka when i first got it.....about 41 pounds.

    After a couple warranty replacement issues and swapping some parts from my old bike onto it......Now sitting at 38.5 pounds.

    Bike, is completely mismatched and a franken-bike, but what can I do?

    One more season of getting my skills dialed, then time to get a SICK NEW FRAME.

    2011 Demo 8.

    Had it at around 35 with a boxxer wc, vivid air, and sx casing tires.

    Now it's got a R2C2 boxxer, dhx rc4 ti sprung and it's around 37.5.

    Pretty happy with it though. No weight weenie parts, no xc tubes, stock wheels, etc.

    I think maybe 8.5 pounds with the Vivid Air.

    It's all air suspension, tubeless (but still running legit dual ply DH tires), lots of Ti bolts, 3 biggest chainrings are ti, Mag/Ti pedals, light stem (100g), Hope Hubs, Sun EQ 31 rims, 2012 XTR Trail brakes.

    Yeah it's def the real weight, gonna be slightly under 34 when I get the ti shock mounting bolts, and brake clamp bolts in.

    I've had it out at the local DH trails a few times this spring, and it rips.

    thats light for DH bike with everything on it tho. very impressive

    i posted this thread just to see how everyone else's bike weight. im not a big guy. only 5'9 170lbs. cant really handle a bike that's on the heavy side. i will set it in commuter mode at begining. sun mtx33s. maxxis hookworms, manitou sherman fork. ETC im hoping to keep my finish build around 35 lbs.

    2010-2011 Norco Team DH
    Got it with A-line build kit initially and shop claimed it was around 40lbs. Have upgraded bunch of stuff since then. Haven't weighed it, but guessing around 39lbs or so? Will try get it on scale soon.

    Fork: 2012 888 Evo
    Shock: CCDB steel coil
    Wheelset: Mavic EX 823 laced to Hope Pro 2 Evo hubs
    Tires: Maxxis dual-ply DHF and High Roller 2
    Tubes: XC 220g tubes
    Stem: Answer Direct Mount
    Bars: Drawing a blank, but similar to Answer Pro-taper DH bars, just made by other brand
    Pedals: Forte flats
    Brakes: 2010 Code Rs
    Rest is stock 2010 A-line build kit I believe.

    Pretty stoked with setup at the moment.

    last time I weighed it it was 39 lbs. since them I've added a Titanium XTR cassette, xtr shifter, and lighter tires (still 2 ply DH, 2.35 in size) and have a pair of XO DH carbon fiber cranks on the way (bike shop ordered the wrong sized bottom bracket length). Should be close to 38 lbs.

    Some weight savings are on my list of expenses (far, but still there):
    - CC BDair (ca. 200g off)
    - ZTR Flow or WTB Frequenecy i23 TCS rims paired with Sapim CX Ray/Laser spokes and Hope hubs (ca. 250-280g off)

    Dude, that Taka looks nicer with a white fork! If you get an Angleset, you can add more slack to the bike and be set... I personally dig how the frame looks. Maybe you can paint it a different color when you scratch it up bad enough. BTW, 38 lbs might be too optimistic... those things come in at around 43 lbs stock.

    Yeah i was surprised with the weight personally. My medium bike stock came in at 41 pounds (FWIW Mountain bike action Magazine said theirs came in at 40.5 for a size medium). Throw a used DA cassette and chain on there. Shimano XTR trail brakes. TI saddle that I had laying around, a Descendant crank, 2012 888 EVO, DM stem and new bars......sheds a lot of weight LOL

    I wasn't planning on doing the fork or crank, but I kept bashing those stock 175mm cranks on rocks.....and the original fork was messed up from the start.
