    Monkey SS build weight

    I'm considering going 29 and the KM is a possibility. I've got a 1x1 that weighs in at 25.5 lbs. I'm thinking about a rigid Monkey and am wondering what build weights are out there - especially if some beefy (2.5 or so) tires are used. TIA
    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    By the holding-the-bike-while-standing-on-a-bathroom-scale method, my KM weighs 25.5 lbs. I just installed a lighter fork, so that cut about 0.5 lb or so.

    Build:
    large frame
    Igleheart Big Job fork
    XT octalink 180mm cranks with 33t salsa ring and bashguard
    Time atac Z pedals
    Avid BB7s with SD7 levers
    Easton STem and bar
    Lock on grips and cane creek ergo bar ends
    wheels: DT 240s hubs/Tk 7.1 rims
    Exiwolf front and IRC notos rear
