    21.4???? It would be a feather at 31.4 - - 21.4 would be blinding.

    Beautiful, beautiful machine. It definitely needs a pilgrimage to its homeland.

    Wait! There is a Specialized "S" on the pedal, ergo, it must suck balls!

    It means note the +/-...so the weight is 21.4lbs plus or minus. Pretty impressive for a DH bike though!

    I can have it there in no time, it's just getting me there that's proving difficult. Not that that would matter to you of course.

    Yes, and somehow I neglected to mention the 100% margin of error. I haven't weighed it yet, probably 41-42 lbs or something? It pushes pretty easily up hills.

    You really doubt the weight? That's odd.

    Well okay...maybe wait until the snow goes next year. Hopefully our house will sell quick so I can get that place in the mountains. Then we'll have a good base camp when y'all show up!
