    Any one know the Moment's frame weight ?

    Ellsworth website says 8.05 lb. for the Medium, and 6.03 for the Medium Id.
    I remember reading a post in this board , where Mondo from ellsworth bikes said the Moment is only 0.5 lb. heavier than the Id.
    So , wha'ts true ? do the numbers listed on the website include a coil shock on the Moment and an air shock on the Id ? Or is the Moment simply a very heavy frame ?

    My Moment frame weighs 8.1 pounds:

    Large frame
    DHX shock
    500 #/inch spring.

    I think the Id weight you listed would have to be with an air shock, if it is accurate.
    {Principal Skinner} Hmm. Whoever did this is in very deep trouble.
    {Martin} And a sloppy speller too. The preferred spelling of 'wiener' is w - i - e - n - e - r, although 'e - i' is an acceptable ethnic variant.
