    Nice review. I'm a numbers person......so 1630g from 2200g is 570g savings Do you over charge or undercharge your customers

    I'm liking that tunnel trail. I've been riding FHDL and Salmon Falls but after seeing that video......thinking a trip to the Tunnel trail is in the near future. Ole'

    Yeah so finally back for the wheel up date. My math sucks due to HUA syndrome lol. The bike did drop to 28.8lbs switch the rims and man what a difference climbing and descending! But then put all the fix suspension back on because of creaky crowns
    ( something all my forks suffer but the pike lasted the longest before I had to warranty ) and the TR Maxxis High Roller II 3 c 27.5 x2.3tires. Now the bike is back to 30lbs and even though the tires are slower pedaling they stop significantly better while being even on super tech climbing and cornering compared to the vigilantes. Still not sure if I want to pony up for xo1 or try the new xtr, though I having a lot of right thumb issues and am considering grip **** to help cope.
