    WFO bike weight

    Quite a few people have asked my how much my WFO weighs.

    I can't remember the thread, so just posting the info here.

    XL WFO in turd brown.
    Dorado 2004 model
    KS i900 dropper seatpost

    front hub Hope pro 2,
    rear hub DMR cheapshit
    36 DB spokes on a Kris Holm freeride rim.

    Front tyre WTB Stout
    Rear tyre WTB WWlt 2.55



    The final weight comes to....

    drumroll please


    41lb.


    Thank you and good night everybody.
    Why would I care about 150g of bike weight, I just ate 400g of cookies while reading this?

    Hey, nice to no I'm not the only on flying around on a porker of a WFO!

    Trust me the Dorado is worth the extra weight.

    Two obstacles I have been trying to clear for years I managed for the first time after fitting the Dorado, it is just stunning.

    Strangely enough it has also completely changed since the weather got warm....weird

    BMJ, get the Dorado. It is calling your name so loud that I can even hear it

    CG, your build is within 4oz of mine. I finally switched to Kodiaks after I ripped open another Stout. Hmmm...it just occurred to me that "Ripped open another Stout" is a great euphemism for having another beer! Anyway the Kodiaks actually saved me some weight since I can run them tubeless. They are true gorilla grade gear. My bike is much happier now.

    How do you like the KS seatpost?

    Part of me wants to recommend it, but reliability is an issue.

    As a dropper post it is perfect.
    It is absolutely solid, no flex or wobble or slip.

    However my first two came from the batch with the dodgy bearing.

    My current one has just started to stick randomly.

    It seems the main strength is the main weakness, this dam bearing!!!
