    I think it depends on your terrain. I use a 37 lb. Delirium as my all purpose bike and I love it. I live in the Boston area which has a ton of gnar on the majority of our trails. I also like hitting the parks but I don't do it enough to justify having a dedicated park bike. The bike is on the beefier side compared to what my buds ride but I'm the only one who isn't replacing frames all the time. I have pedaled this bike on multiple all day XC epics w/flats on and it's not ideal. I was happy on the downs but the longer ups got to me. If I were to ride that stuff constantly I'd shoot for a lesser/lighter bike but for the occasional epic it's just fine. I am planning on lightening up the bike a bit. I'm hoping to get it around 35lbs. w/o sacrificing big hit ability and suspension.

    Another option is to beef up the new Chilcotin. I'm tempted to do that myself but I do love the Delirium so much right now and it would probably end up being only a couple of pounds lighter.

    The Creamsicle!

    So, I transferred all of the Mango/Orange bling from the Ano Black DT to the new White Delirium..... and the result is a Orange Creamsicle with a coating of Cayenne Pepper.

    The guy I bought it from did an amazing job of packing the frame, so much so I had to post a picture of it.

    The bike will have a Rock Shox Reverb on it come Friday and most likely the AVY Woodie, waiting on the correct reducers. However, the RC4 was a surprise. It felt great. I have yet to chek the sag but I couldn't feel anything on the parking lot test. Put fresh oil in Cragstr's favorite fork and it feels amazing, as it always has. The cockpit feels great. Can't wait to get it dirty.

    I think it looks good!

    I'll ignore the comments about the 66, you got lucky my friend. Better think of an alternate cable route method for the reverb, I read they dont come with a whole lot of hydraulic line. Now get your asses up here to ride on Friday!

    You liked that one!?

    It is hydro, so it can go wherever. It doesn't need to have the swoop, but I'll look into it. Thanks! Hopefully.......hopefully Friday.

    Dom

    That is SWEET!!
    Didn't think I would like the Mango on White.
    I do...actually better than the Mango on Black-Ano.
    ( My Delirium is Red on White - will take some pix when the final parts arrive - Reverb etc )

    BTW - Do you think the Woodie will mount Res-Up as we discussed?

    Initial measurements, yes! We'll find out this afternoon when I get the reducers. Keep your fingers crossed. I am still curious about how good this RC4 feels...........I probably have 45% sag knowing how all of the other FOX shocks have felt.

    Have you ridden that bike w/ a 400# spring before trying the 350#? If so, how did it go?

    Yep!

    Couldn't pass that one up. I'm just over 5'-10" with a 33-1/2" inseam and it seems to be a good fit.
