    5.1 Lbs for a large, pretty good! A tad lighter than previous which I believe is about 5.5 Lbs. Thanks!

    I too picked up a medium, yellow. With thru axle and seatpost collar, mine too was 5.7 Lbs. All built up with wide rims and good sized tires my total build weight is 26.5 Lbs. Rides great!

    Anyone built one up/down to 24#? My gen 1 is @ 23.5 in race trim, and Iím wondering how feasible it is with the current.

    I think you could get it down to the same weight, but don't think this bike is intended to be that light given it should have a 140 fork and a little burlier wheels and wider tires.

    Nice ride there epiphreddy! Yes the Jet has indeed moved towards the RIP side of things, and I hadn't even looked at the geo changes page LOL I had assumed the Jet was about the same but RKT racier. Times change.
