    For a DH bike (if thats what it is) thats stupid light. That would be lighter than any pro bike on the WC circuit I believe.

    Ahh well I'm convinced thanks for your opinions. I was just making sure that it wasn't too heavy. Appreciate the help.

    i dont think a 30 lb marin qualifies in any way, shape, or form as a dh bike. the lightest dh bikes made are probably the cannondale gemini's, and those at race weight are around 35 lbs.
