    Not taken it to the shop yet to use their hook thingy and have no scales at home, based on previous bike though I'd say north of 28 lbs. I prefer that nothing breaks though.

    Sorry if I didn't get this,
    does this mean I could use a Lyric RC2L Coil U-Turn in an AC?
    (545 +/-5 vs 530mm)
    Anyone using this setup in the mountains?

    Looking for a new frame to replace my Devinci Dixon. Hopefully a large Helius AC would build up around the same weight as my large Dixon (31.15 lbs) with a tough build.

    Has anyone out there weighed a large 2013 Helius frame with shock etc yet?

    Is the Nicolai bushing system very durable for up here in NE Scotland? My last bike with bushings (Banshee Spitfire) had mega issues with it's bushing system which wore out very quickly and wore into the frame.

    Looks like the perfect machine for the mud, rain and rocks of Aberdeenshire!

    Be very interested in size large build weights and opinions on durability of the 2013 models.

    Thanks Lecht, I just had an email conversation with Gravity sports and they made an excellent offer for the frame only option. Think I am going to go for it, looks like a stunning bike for up here!
