    $4000 seams like a deal for tha build. Is that a 2x9 setup? What gearing is that? Only thing I'd ditch is the WB fork, haven't heard too many good things about them....

    It's got ALL the goodies on it!

    Yes, it's currently setup w/ 2x9. I went with a 30/44 since I don't really need the granny ring. And since my 29er is setup with standard gearing both bikes end up with the same lowest gearing. With a bike this light you don't need anything smaller!

    I have a small Extralite ring if the buyer is interested. It'll add 20grams or so (if I remember correctly).

    I have to disagree with your assessment of the WB, Personally, I haven't heard any bad things about them. 3.1 pounds, smooth, adjustable, lockout, what more could a guy want??? I have them on all my MTB's, including the wife's!

    The only one I pushed on personally had wicked amounts of sticktion, especially after sitting undisturbed for a couple of hours. I didin't know that they were that light, either...

    Hmm, I haven't experienced that. I've got a WB.8, WB1.0, BW.8, and a 1997 SC70UL.

    They come in just over 3 lbs.

    She's a 26er.

    Frame weight is approximately 4.5, I can't remember exactly.

    nice build

    I can concur, my old SC72 and my new '05 BW.8 are much more smooth than my 2 SIDs.
