I finally got my bike..

I finally got a new bike!!........after I broke my other one. The other one was a cheap mongoose, the deraileur shattered off the frame, and the derailleur hanger (which is attached to the bike) cracked off.. So the next day, my parents took me to my LBS. and I got a 2001 Spec. Enduro FSR for $1000. I was suppose to get the '02 Rockhopper FSR Comp, for $800. But I got the enduro, for $200 more, I get better parts etc. I'm soo anxious to ride the bike, it's my dream bike! I wanted to say thanks to you for helping me and giving me advice on bike purchasing. You've saved me from buying bikes I would regret getting later.
Here is my(it's not mine exactly, it's someone else, but it's the exact same w/o the fenders).

stand on the bathroom scale w/ bike, then step off and measure yourself. Subtract your weight from the weight of the you and the bike, and voila, you have the weight of your bike.
