    It's inline with other bikes of this type, such as the Banshee:

    Banshee Wildcard Large (Frame Only) 2009 3638grams = 8lbs, frame with shock 4,191g = 9.2lbs

    Mountaincycle Battery:

    Orange Frame Weight:
    (including Marzocchi Roco Air R shock, seat clamp and QR dropouts) = 10.40 lbs {4.72 Kg} no shock = 9.35 lbs {4.24Kg}

    Black Ano Frame Weight:
    (including Rock Shox Monarch 2.1 shock, seat clamp and QR dropouts) = 9.90 lbs {4.49 Kg} no shock = 9.30 lbs {4.22 Kg}

    Do you want these sorts of bikes to be strong and take the pounding you want to give them, do do you want them to be light and break after two months? These are frames designed for going hard and big, not for lightweight XC/Trail use. While you can indeed use them for this, their true role is for a much harder life.

    It's a park bike, not a XC rig.

    Comparing a 20" TT bike equivalent to XS to a 24.3" TT L is not a fair comparison. It weighs a tonne would be more honest.

    In fact please find me a similar size, similar travel bike that weighs more.

    I dont mind a heavy freeride bike if its solid but for poeple wanting a 4X or slopestyle bikes its hugely overbuilt. Different profile tubes on the swing arm would help and reduce the fouling the crank arms problems.

    How long in development was this frame? What changes were made since interbike release?
    And thats whats happening!
