Riding Type Downhill
Weight 36 lb 0 oz (16329 g)
Additional Info Size Large. The bike originally started as a Operator Carbon complete. I swapped most components in favor of ones I have had positive experiences with, which helkped the weight considerably. It ended up just shy of 36 lbs with dual ply tires, tubes, and a Vivid Air R2C. I cannot remember the exact weight, so I put 36 lbs even. I have since swapped in a Vivid Coil R2C but did not put on the titanium spring when I did. Sometimes it's best to swap "cheap" steal springs around to determine the rate needed before putting on the Ti spring you have and trying to make that work. ;-) The MRP AMG chainguide is an experiment, but one I am confident will work with the Type II read derailleur and X01 chainring; granted, I have spent more time at WP than Keystone or Angle Fire the last couple years. If I were racing DH, I would have chosen a guide with a lower roller. I never decided on what wheels to upgrade to, so I left the stock ones on and planned on using them until I decided. After that, these would become backups. Here's the sad part about this build: I built the bike February of 2014... and never rode it once all summer. The bike has still never been ridden. Today is March 13th... 2015. :-(
