    The Evolution of my VP-Free Begins

    So I am slowly turning my Free into a more All Mountain Friendly beast! Step 1. Replace Forks! Here she is! Also replaced headset and BB due to being completely shot!!! Many more weight loss additions planned!

    Great looking ride.
    That's what I did right before I sold it. It was 39 pounds w/ a Marzocchi 66 up front and the DHX Air shock.
    Super fun bike, but my Nomad was an excellent choice.

    My medium Free was 32.93 lbs. when first built with a Talas 36 and DHXa. Now it weighs 34 with a ti CCDB. With DH rubber and a coil 66, it's 37.5. It's definitely a trail-able platform.

    Yeah - same here. Well, three years in my case. And despite being over 40 pounds, it's still taken on 50km trail rides, 1200m climbs and the occasional XC and 24 hour race. Plus DH and freeride at the weekends
