    Weight of '06 SX Trail

    So I threw the bike on the scale last night, and it came in at 39.4lbs. Had lighter tires on it, and it would have been 37lbs but I was getting pinch flats so went for something more durable.

    Component list:

    2006 Specialized SX Trail, size large
    Marzocchi 66RC2X fork
    Fox DHX 5.0 rear shock
    Bontrager Big Earl wheelset
    Bontrager Big Earl 2.6" tires, wire bead (standard Conti 26x1.95-2.5 tubes)
    Race Face Diabolus cranks and BB with 32/22 ring and RF bashguard
    Shimano XT 4-piston brakes with 8" rotors
    Cranks Bros. 5050 pedals
    LX front derailleur
    XO rear derailleur
    SRAM 12-34 cassette
    SRAM chain
    Axiom telescoping seatpost
    Axiom FR saddle
    Race Face Real Seal DH headset
    Truvativ Holzfeller bars
    Truvativ Holzfeller stem (60mm)

    Wow, I didn't think it'd come in so heavy. My guess was around 34-36 lbs. You could probably lose 1.5 with a 66 sl. I might have to think about the Enduro Expert now.

    Got pics?

    Yeah, I could lose weight with a lighter fork (air fork, especially). Lighter tires would also help, as would a lighter saddle, no front derailleur / shifter, plastic bashguard instead of metal...

    But I'm 215lbs, and lighter tires usually results in flats when I run them at a lower PSI. This bike is also lighter than the Banshee Chaparral I was riding (48lbs.), so I'm a happy camper.

    You could definitely get it lighter if you chose weight-conscious components, and were a smaller rider that could get away with lighter stuff. Not as much of an option for me, though.

    No pix yet, but soon hopefully.
