    Why is it so damn heavy? VF2 is for more XC builds, correct?

    Exactly!!! I simply do not understand why does VF2s are being built with 2.35 tires which makes them sooo heavy. Thats for the XCL
    They should be built with 2.1 tires.

    I just had my VF2 weighted and it was 27.1 lbs. and it has XT components, with XTR it should be a lot lighter.
    BTW, Im using 2.1 Highroller tires, non tubeless but not using tubes, on XT rims (thanks to Stans white liquid).
