    mine`s at 44pounds and the blue one with the 40 is at 41pounds i believe...it might be less...i will get mine down to 42.3pounds when i get tubeless....pretty sweet for vpp 10"/8" bikes i think.

    thanx dude...u ll be hearing more and more from us southamericans as we get faster and faster...just to name a few that will shake things up a bit for sure in the next years in the wc circuit: antonio leiva and coto from chile,jarrin from ecuador and dinno cecchi from peru (the one with the red v-10 and orange helmet,he`s getting a m3 next week-babyblue)...some allready succesfull guys from the surroundings: sebastian vasquez from chile usually finishes in the top30 of the wc`s, diana margraff from ecuador in the womans top ten and markolf berchtold from brazil who s in the top 15 of the wc`s....and just to show off....here a pic of me riding in the cuzco megaavalanche training in front of markolf and gee.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    hmm....it`s only cause we got sweet deals on SC bikes,for example i got my bike as pictured up there for 4400buks here in peru...and the frame alone with dhx for 1800buks...now the intense dealer as well as the cannondale dealer are getting their prices down...so we`ll be seeing some m3 and geminis in a few weeks.
