Nice find! And if you take off the wheels & ship them separately, you could probably save a pretty penny on shipping.
And in regards to your blog post, everything you changed in riding style was right except the braking. 75/25% front/rear braking still applies with mountain biking. The only times I use my rear brake are when I need to come to an abrupt stop, or if I'm 'power-braking' (sorry for the drifting reference guys--don't know the term used in MTBing) to intentionally lose traction through a sharp turn. Otherwise the front brake is still the way to go.
