    Nice build!! Love the look. What does the SIR9 frame weigh? I thought the overall build would be a tad lighter. Doesn't matter, just curious.

    I weighed it on my POS digital fishing scale so it could be off. Feels real light!

    If you NEVER weigh it again

    It will stay that weight. Sweet. My Sir9 is 32 lbs, so I always weigh it and it never helps.

    I could always lose a few more lbs. That'll be the cheapest way!

    32 lbs? Did you mean 23 lbs? My Pugsley weighs 32 lbs!

    Wierd huh?

    I think my bike sneaks out at night and eats hamburgers from the drive-through. I should lock it up before bed.

    Haha! Seriously though, how do you have your SIR built up? I have a brand new SIR9 frame downstairs in my shop, that is waiting on a few small parts before I start to build it up, and now I'm curious what it'll weigh. I'm using an XX fork, Thomson stem and seatpost, Niner carbon flat bar, Chris King headset, Fifteen G cranks, BB7 brakes, etc.....

    Sounds like a nice ride man! I weighed the stuff I have on the bench and used the Internet to estimate the last few parts (XX Fork, etc), and my initial guess is right around 25 lbs. I can't wait to see!
