    Nice bike

    I love mine, find it a lot smoother of a ride than my karakoram. Been trying not to ride much this winter to save it for this summer...but it's hard to do

    What is the weight on the bikes guy? Im thinking of getting a 2013 Zaskar 9r Comp and replace stuff as needed but I wonder about the aluminum frame weight.

    Mine stock was 28lbs. Still feels very light to me, probably going tubeless with some new wheels would help a lot.
