    I think there should be a disclaimer: forced fork admittance.

    Haven't seen much mention of that 66 here, Gillespie!

    34.5 lbs with BOS Idylle SC (coil) and DB air. Soon to be fitted with my old Stoy coil shock, so the weight will go up to around 35 lbs. The longer term plan is to fit XX1 which should shave off about 1.5 lbs, although this is not the main reason for going 11 speed.

    Currently 35.5 lbs when I have my Avy'd Marz 66 on it.

    I have 2008 Preston FR at about the same weight. Both are great going down hill, but the Chili is hands-down easier to pedal uphill.
