Wonder if the KHS boys are running the DVO internals on the Manitou Dorado or not...

The proto pictured there is about 30-31lbs I think with pedals... and the production frames will be lighter. I'm not saying that frame weight is not a factor I consider, just that I know it isn't the only important thing to consider, I would certainly argue that linkage efficiency and frame stiffness make a bigger difference on frames where weight is similar. As I often find myself saying... if you want a lighter weight to drag up a hill, go for a shit before you ride, as it is combined weight of bike and rider that matters.

I think you'll find when you test ride the it is very very different. The antisquat makes a big difference by itself... but also the rune V2 is steeper than the early slayer which had a 72.5degree effective seat angle compared the the rune V2's effective seat angle in the neutral postion of 74degrees.
