    My Kermit the Frog Lurcher is complete!

    Got my Lurcher back from the shop today after getting the cables installed and the brake lines trimmed today. I took it out for a 10 mile road ride to bed in the the brake pads, and hope to get out on the trails this weekend. I must say that I am very pleased with how it turned out, and think the weight is decent at 21.67 lbs (Including Chain Stay Protector, Full Sheet of Shelter frame protector on the downtube, and around the bottom bracket and chainstay), considering the wheels are paperweights at close to 2100 grams for the set. Here is the parts spec for the bike:

    KCNC parts, but no frame weighed individually. Shame.
