Here's a link that has more info on the bike. The claimed weight for a M is 20.7lbs, mine is a L and weighed 21.8 with pedals at the shop. I've removed the tubes which were around 8oz which should put me at around 21lbs even, I haven't taken it back to the shop to weigh it again.

My stock 2006 Rocky Mountain Slayer 50 bought new in 2007.
Pic was taken on Lief Ericsson Dr. (Forest Park) in Portland, OR.
'07 was a bad year for riding (due to major surgery) but I plan on making up for it this year.

Sweet Subaru -- I love my 2003 TS Wagon, even if it is bone stock. I might spring for ALU wheels and tinting this spring though.

Oh yeah, way to rock it old school with the 'Dale.

Love my Impreza. I got the 7 year warranty, so I abuse the hell out of it. The only time the warranty was used was 1 week after I bought it... The stereo went out.

The 'Dale is a brick! It's light-ish (23 lbs), but stiff as a light pole. I run 25 psi in the 2.2 tires and it still beats the hell out of me.

Sweet! Is this to take the place of the SX trail? or just adding another ride to the stable?
Oh and have you ever ridden a Banshee frame before?

Thanks b2b! The SXT is staying. This one just fills another niche.

I've had some time on a Scream and a Chap, but nothing with the VF4B suspension prior to this.

I haven't posted this bike in a while, I've been too focused on my new Karate Monkey. I took this one out today with some platforms. It was fun, but COLD. Here are some pictures I took afterward.
