    Yup. HAWT!!! But what are the differences between the '05and '06 frames? Any refinements, shock fitment, linkage, etc? Will they be available as a frame kit again this year? When? I gotta get one of these!!!!

    Thanks, man. Frameset again? Was that mentioned at all? Seems I've missed a deal on the '05s (medium).

    From Dave W. when I asked him the diff. between the 05 and 06 7Points:

    there is a new lower yoke, larger bearings on the chainstay, and an aluminum chainstay pivot. There is a new lower link, and the frame now uses an 8.75x2.75 shock except for the 7.9 which uses a 9X2.75 air shock.

    I wonder why they changed the shock size?

    It seemed fine to me.

    Plus, I can run a DHX-Air.

    that was one of my criteria when I got the 05.

    also I noticed that the 06 has some extra litte gussets on the rear swingarm. wonder why those were added?

    and there is no brace on the TT/ST - wonder if that 06 is a small?

    I'm seriously thinking of buying one next year. I'd like to know the weight too, I'm hoping the large is around 33 but I'm not sure how much of a difference there is between climbing on 33 and 35 pound bikes.

    Were there any at the dirt demo, did anyone ride one?

    I'll guess 38 pounds.

    -BB-'s medium 7Point7 with 2.35 tires and lighter cranks weighs in at 36.

    My large 7Point7 is just over 40.

    FYI - I spoke with IH customer service of Friday, and they confirmed that the 7point frame kit would be available again this year. No pricing yet, nor release date.

    Frame kits are usually the last thing to make it out the production line - so it might be a while!

    Is that confirmed that the small 7point9 complete build comes in at 36 pounds ?

    Not too shabby.

    I don't know about that. When i e-mailed Ironhorse about the larges, they said they weight approx.39 lbs. I don't see that much of a difference in frame weight, maybe 1/2 a pound between SML and LRG.
