    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.
