I'd love to know myself. It looks great,...but the caption below the photo on the originating site is rather annoying.

I'm pretty sure it's a MIXIE. You can even see the logo on the fork in your original photo.

You know, I believe you are correct. Sweet ride, but just slightly too colorful for my tastes.

Probably between 20-25 pounds, but that's just a guess. My Alton weighs around 23 pounds and my Sillgey is right at 20 pounds. All 3 bikes share similar geometry.
