    Wow indeed!

    Why'd you get rid of the roval wheels? No weight benefit with the Mavics is there? Nope, just checked 1750 grams either way.

    In for pic hanging from scale. That beauty's gotta be light!

    Sweet bike!

    No weight savings with the mavics, but I had already built them and I have no history with the rovals, so back-up duty is their fate.

    Its lite, needless to say, i'll frickin' buy a scale today, just to prove it.

    From my understanding it is on framesets and complete bikes. It almost looks as if they sent out a few to select dealers, then the rest wont be available until the end of the month.

    is it a 19"?

    I'd be happy just staring at it for a couple days.

    Hmmm, it's even my size.

    OK, where's my Epic damnit!

    For those of you waiting on the weight I ordered the ultimate digital scale on Friday, it should be here by tomorrow.

    The RockShox Reba is the spec'd shock, albeit proprietary model.

    I just noticed the Speci website has changed the spec fork from a RockShox Reba S29 90mm to """Soecialized Future Shock S90, 90mm travel,"""

    Noticed Specialized is misspelled from their website?

    Nice bike! I've got my XX group lying on my desk right now I'll probably mount the group tonight. Up front I'm still using an S-Works 2009 crank, 26/42T - hope this will be ok. If not, I'll probably go for 28/42T XX chainrings & spider, once they are available from Specialized?

    How come you didn't use MatchmakerX clamps for mounting the shifters?

    Funny you should ask.

    Every trail has been closed for several weeks cause of rain. Yesterday one trail opened up and we hit it, up to our arses in mud. Came home to my new digital scale and quickly weighed the bike before going out to dinner. To my surprise the bike weighed 24.15lbs, man I was in such a bad mood during dinner.

    Just got finished cleaning the bike and the new offical weight for a 21" swerkz sj carbon 29ers is,,,,,,, drum roll,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 21.6lbs!!!

    Thats 3lbs lighter than the expert carbon. 3lbs is a lot of weight to shave off a bike. pretty darn nice.
