    These people are the worst, getting you all excited, and then, when you are trying to calm down by asking something techy, they leave you drooling! ;-)

    sorry for not responding...i almost forgot that i posted this up!

    firstly bike weight = 20.2kg...will get it below 20kg after i swap out the ugly stem and some 09 saint cranks

    the saint brakes are the best ive owned, ive had codes and juicy 5+7. Everything you've read about them is pretty much true!

    the forks are buttery smooth! i had initial setup problems but thats all been sorted. forks run almost 1L of oil bring the fork aprrox 3.6kg. With a bike like the foes, weight is never an issue

    Update 28JUL10:
    the original powdercoat started to flake off from day one and the frame was looking a bit shabby so with lots and lots and lots of time on my hands...



    imo...much better than white
