    New make up, old gal.

    Just finished up freshening up a customers El Rey.
    Started out at 33.7lbs and with new wheels/tires and fork brought it down to just over 31lbs. And there will be marked positive changes on the trail through stiffer wheels fork and better tires to boot.

    Old wheels were XT hubs, straight gauge spokes and a WTB rim shod with Exiwolfs with tubes.

    New wheels are Hope Pro2EVO with dbl. butted spikes and Flow rims with tape and valves running tubeless with 2.25 rear/2.35" front Schwable WickedWills.

    Old fork was a first generation 29er Reba w/9mm qr.

    New fork is a 2012 Reba RLT 15mm thru axle.

    Thought I'd share.....

    Nice, and he (Assuming based on size) could drop another 1/2 pound switching out those Hone Cranks!

    Question, you wrote Wicked Will, but pic show Nobby Nic...???

    That looks like an El Capitan not El Rey?

    Looks like a mix, El Rey rockers, wioth Cap front tri, probably for strength due to size.
