    What's the lightest 575 can be made?

    I have a 2011 and am toying with tossing my enduro bits. How light can one of these get?

    I have a 2010 575 and I am at 27 lbs. That's with a Race setup (3x10) and a 2.4 Fat Albert on the front and a 2.25 Fat Albert on the rear. I also have a Fox Talas 150 fork.

    I have a large 08 that is all XTR and it weights
    25 pounds even. I use it as a long travel XC bike.

    Best, John

    Here's my bike. These are with my lighter tires and I am running Stan's No Tubes and recently upgraded the post to a Joplin 4r, so I am up another lb.

    My manager has a XL 25th anniversary edition built to ~26-27lbs depending on tires. He was full xtr and 1200 gram carbon wheels and lots of other tricks.

    Sent from my mobile telephone.

    My 09' Carbon-Rear Large was a bit over 28#'s. All XT with an e-13 DRS bash dual ring setup.

    One of the mechanics at the shop I bought it from had an 09' too, except he was running all XTR with some other light parts and a 1x9... tipped the scale at a hair over 26#'s

    My '11 (2x10 X0, I9, with XTR race pedals) was 11.6kgs with 2.1 RR's, would have increased now with the addition of 2.25 NN's and a MRP 2X.

    I have an 08 that recently weighed in at 28.1 lbs after I put some Crossmax ST' s on it. The wheelset before that weighed 2200+ grams, so the weight loss was definitely noticable.

    My 07 (but with 09 carbon rear) was built up xc light at 25 lbs when I had 2.1 tires on it and a Thomson post. Weight savings was the wheels, Am. Classic hubs, CX-ray spokes and Mavic 819 rims. Fox 140.Carbon bar etc etc. Even now with an AMP dropper seatpost, 2.3 tires and a Fox 36 its just at 30 with pedals.
