    Bubba's got a sub 22-lb AS-R...

    ...but he's not telling anyone about it. And it's legit.

    Make enough noise and his boss may strongarm him into posting a pic or two.

    I've seen it. It has a sweet paint job too. His old bike was close to 22, so new frame and parts might bring it down.

    I got a large down to 23.5 without much effort. Glenzx did too.

    This bike?

    Looks like a standard frame (ti bolts maybe?), just some really chi-chi parts on it. Two ring, 3 bolt cranks (not sure what kind), triple ti eggs, XTR/Stans wheelset running Highrollers, Hope minis with (I think) XTR two piece rotors, X.O shift/RD, some scary light lookin' QRs, etc, etc.

    Of course, maybe this isn't the bike y'all are talking about??

    Pix from the Eldora Escape. First two are mine, last one is Dave Cohen's. (Gotta credit the photogs, ya know )

    That isn't the same frame. I think the parts are about the same.

    Ahh, should've known...

    Now I'm curious too. He used the same bike in the XC race. (Short track pix above) Must be a shiny new frame. When are the pix coming!

    Yep. Nice paint job too.

    Couldn't get the dirt on where the weight shaving was though. Didn't look too closely either.

    Does Bubba know...

    ...that there are pictures of him 'working out' in his underpants plastered all over the internet?

    Here's one of him in a more natural setting:

    AND he's a former Australian National Champion - - - - surely he didn't buy one of Rowney's old skinsuits...?

    Ew, 2nd hand chamois-jam!

    Crankset looks like Middleburn RS8 with Duo 29/44 setup. Spider is integrated with the 29 tooth inner ring and yup, they're light.
