    got one

    totally an under-rated bike. climbs great, descends great. builds usually come in 32-38lbs depends on how you build it. build it to huck and it is going to be heavy. build it with air shocks front and rear and I have seen them hit the sub 30lb mark. Mine is a medium, if you want a real world test ride, shoot me an e-mail your welcome to try it out. Mine is pretty FR built with a Sherman, med weight wheels and semi DH tires it is about 33-34lbs.

    I concur with lukeduke, the AS-X is a fun bike. Climbing is definitely more work on a bike this hefty, I climb all of the same stuff as on my XC bike, I just climb slower. When descending it's very stable and inspires lots of confidence.

    Mine is a stock build (Fox 36 vanilla fork and a coil DHX 5 shock) with the exception of the tires, which I recently changed to a Nevegal in the rear and a Blue groove up front. I'd guess that it weighs about 35-36 lbs right now. It could be built much lighter than what I run, but that would cost more $$.
