    Nice! Very NICE! Bike feels really good when it's under 25 pounds (mine is at 24.7 right now).

    Weight? Which size frame, which rockers and shock? I'll try.
    I ..... need ..... DIRT!!!!!

    Warning!!! Porn

    OK, I went back to work where the bike and my tools are, and put the rear wheel on. All said and done, she weighs in at an even 25 lbs. but she will get slightly lighter cuz the new stem aint on yet. I'm still contemplating the ti eggs and a kmc sl 9 chain. Enjoy the porn. And for breggurns, putting the 24t was the initial plan to have a little bit bigger granny, and made it easier to put the med cage on. I would have gotten the med cage anyway cuz I never use the big/big combos cuz thats crosschaining and I hate doing such things. And for Andrew, its a 18 with the stock rockers and the stock fox float AVA R.

    BAH! I WAS going to figure it out, although I knew you wouldn't be under the 25-pound mark yet.

    Looks great, nice competent build. Looks like another user of Duckman's DA set-up.
