    2008 moment Frame Weight

    Anyone know how much they weigh? They used to have weights on the old website but removed them for some reason which is surprising as I think Ellsowrths low weight is one of their selling points.

    Thanks in advance.

    Some Ellsworth's are light but the Moment really isn't one of them. I think it's safe to assume that with an air shock it's around 7 lbs.

    On another thread I saw that the Med moment with DHX air is 7.71#'s. Not too bad. Don't think I would want an uber light moment.

    Buy an EPI if you want to cut some weight.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I've got an epiphany already but want something a bit more hardcore as a second bike. I still want a fairly light frame though rather than an 8.5lbs + like a downhill bike.

    If it's 7.71lbs then that would fit the bill. Is that definitely the right weight?

    Yes. the boys at the PATH bike shop weighed one up. If you search using "THE PATH" bike shop you will find the thread. I think they were 2007's but they are the same for '08.

    Have fun with the build.

    My large came in at 7.6 with a DHX 5.0.
    I like to ride Bikes. This might be turning into an obsession, not sure?
