    I have to admit that it’s so tempting for me to get rid of my 32lb Pug and 25lb FS 29er for this bike.

    Thats a pretty smokin’ deal for all of the components alone, but I would still prefer something carbon framed like my Echo

    Yes, very good deal. Unless you are plugged, in the components alone would be around 5g, retail + any tax. That’s parts and a free frame for most of us.

    Amazing bike! Have had mine for two weeks now and the only change I’ve made is with the h-bar for a riser h-bar. Very predictable and stable in all conditions so far.
