    I don't know the length but I know they stated that adding a bluto would cause the standover to rise by 1". I'm pretty sure bullets shipped with a 120m bluto. Might be easier to find info on the bluto than Sturgis

    Sorry if I was unclear, I'm looking to find out what the A2C is on the stock alloy fork (non-Bluto) because it is only with that length that you get the geometry advertised for BB height, HT angle, etc. I've got a NT Bullet with 120mm travel and, while I'm liking it, I'd actually like to try to get the fork length adjusted to try it with the geometry matched for the rigid geometry.

    Maybe set the bluto so standover 1" higher than advertised specs and measure A/C. Then reduce bluto height so it drops standover by 1" and measure new bluto A/C. Bikedirect sells a carbon fork that has a 480mm A/C. Or their cr-mo fork they sell says it's 455 A/C. But that's different than the stock sturgis fork as the sturgis had thru axles and this one has QR

    Does anyone out there know what size crown race I need for the stock rigid fork on a Sturgis?

    just picked up an 2018 Night Train Express (GX 1x11 version) which has been lowered to $1400 down from $1500 originally. Out of the box the 17.5 frame weighs about 33 lbs stock with no reflectors and no pedals (measured with bathroom scale method). I was hoping for sub 30 but hopefully it won't be that hard to get it under 30 without spending too much. I already have some lighter tires coming in which should help, plus I've read the stock tubes and rim strip are heavy, so we'll see how much we can lose just from that.

    Looking at the weights for the Maxxis Minions, they are 1600g each.. that's over 7 pounds of rubber on the bike. If I were to swap to Kenda Juggernauts I would definitely be sub 30, though I've read they have really bad rolling resistance. Going tubeless could possibly get into the 28 range, which is fast approaching the advertised weight on the Titanium model at 26.3 for tubeless with Juggernauts

    edit: I got out a better scale and did some measurements after swapping some tires.. got it down to 13.6 kg which is 29.98.. sub 30! that's with some cheap pedals on there... definitely sub 30 without the pedals. And just with a tire and tube swap. Swapped out the stock Minions for some 120tpi Speedsters in 26x3.5. Speedsters measure about 3.9 wide on the 80mm rims

    The actual weight of the Minions was 1700g and the actual weight of the speedsters is 1050g.. I swapped in some 26x2.3 tubes I had which were about a pound lighter (each wheel!) than the stock tubes too. It feels so much better with at least two pounds off each wheel. I didn't even test ride the stock set up but just moving the bike around it felt like there was lead in the wheels. If I went tubeless I think I could lose another half pound or so. That's pretty good without even swapping any components or wheels or anything. I'm pretty happy with the purchase
