    theres one down in the shop and i was surprised when i picked it up that it was quite heavy, i thought they had made them on par with the epic now, my epic comp weighs in at 27.5 pounds stock with heavy shimano SPD's, i dont know the exact weight of the SJ comp but picking it up it was noticably heavier than my epic

    Yes! its fast and still quite a lot lighter than other 5in travel bikes for the same price.

    Where are you going to be riding it and on what kind of surface?

    Perfect riding conditions! Iím sure youíll be fine on those surfaces, some of the Sram and Avid kit doesnít cope well in very dusty or muddy conditions.

    I hope you get it soon and try to post some pics out on the trail or the race.

    Merry Christmas!
