    So I have now seen a BG with Blue, Black and Yellow wheels. Anyone tried red wheels, or some other color? May have to try my red ML's on one at the LBS just for grins...

    GT554, what black rims did you use? Go to a Marge Lite for even more weight savings or ?

    For the other weight weenies out there, my small frame weighs in at about 1567 grams and the fork is 735 g uncut (that might include the headset race though).

    No, I wanted to go with the wider Daryll's b/c we do a lot of beach riding here on Long Island. I have the Lites on my Pugz and always feel like I'm working a bit harder then the guys on the wider wheels.

    I built a Beargrease up from the frameset. Weight is 27 pounds 10 ounce with Rolling Darryls and the Escalators and 28 pounds 7 ounces with the Clown Shoes and BFL. That's with pedals, but no cages, so add a few ounces back for those. I replaced last year's Mukluk 2 with this bike and that weighed in at 32 pounds and a few ounces. I notice the additional stiffness of the fork, but that may be the aluminum blades or the tapered steer tube and the bike is definitely easier to get up to speed due to the weight loss. I wish the bottom bracket were higher like this year's Mukluks, but that is about all I'd change.

    GT554, you are right. I rode on the stock WTB today and have no complaints. New saddle is already on the way, so it will be a tough choice. So happy with this bike!
