    Man, that is a nice bike, I pick mine up tomorrow so I will have to post up. Why are you going to the Van?
    I like to ride Bikes. This might be turning into an obsession, not sure?

    Nice bike

    Congrats on the new bike. But, looking at your build, I can't figure out how you got your bike so light. I have an 06 Moment (med) with a DHX Air and 36 TALAS. It's built up with reasonably light stuff and CK / Mavic 819 wheels. But, it's somewhere between 31.5 and 32 lbs. I'm sure you will love the bike. I'm actually waiting for an 08 Moment frame which is on order.

    Thanks Bud! Van 36 R is fine and the price is reasonable. You get the same plush and feel with the other Fox 36's as long its properly adjusted. No problem in climbing, its heavy but you'll get used to it . But I know TALAS and other 08 models are much cooler becuz of the QR.

    With that Vanilla on there it's over 30lbs. I'm pretty sure you're right.

    I think the weight he posted was before he upgraded to VAN 36.
