My new All Mountain Killer

Finally picked up my bike today. Couldnt be happier with how it turned out. 32lbs of all mountain awesomeness. Not bad for an XL frame with a 180 up front.

Whoa. Lighter than my hardtail (with its 15" frame). Very nice, man.

What's in the glass?

Nice bike! I guess it's a Pivot brand? Tough to tell from the frame markings.

That thing is sick...very well put together. Not sure what brakes you're running, but some Magura MT8's would go well with that. I've been spending some time on my brothers Mach 5 over the last week...can only imagine how fun that bike would be in some rough/steep terrain.

This bike looks similar to the black Yeti in my local bike store. The Yeti has the exact same fork. The guy is asking for $4500. I don't know why bicycles are getting so expensive nowadays.
