    It's currently at the shop getting the fork serviced, so I'll get it on a scale when I pick it up. Now all I need is the weather to cooperate so the trails can finally dry out and I can get some dirt on it.

    Anybody else still riding one?

    that's a beauty

    I'm still kicking myself for not getting one when they were still available. I had almost gotten over it and then you have to put those pictures up.

    Thanks a lot!

    Thanks, bunkerbuster. Sorry to drag you back down kicking and screaming!!

    I got it back from the shop tonight with a fully serviced fork and it tipped the scales at 25.75 pounds. Sorry, not a weight weenie yet, but it scoots! Now comes the fun part of riding the you-know-what out of it at DirtFest at Raystown Lake tomorrow.
