I have a large 2010 marathon, the brain recall was not for the 29er's...I have been riding it for near 2 months and love it. 25.0 lbs tubeless w pedals and a few other small things I kept from my 2009 Epic

Jimmy-What wheels are you riding?

What wheels are the rest of you riding? What combos have you found to weigh less than the stock marathon Roval wheelsets?
I've got a set of the Industry Nine XC wheels. The are a little lighter than the Rovals, a whole lot stiffer, much quicker engagement, and a whole lot sexier. The Ultralights are a bit lighter still with the Stans 355 rims.

I'm with you Jimmy, they should be shipping very soon. Can't wait to here some reviews or post my own. With a few mods I should be able to get it down close to S-WORKS weight for alot less money.I have heard they are about 24lbs stock.I am thinking the S-WORKS 2 by crank will fit right in. ;)

The S-Works crank is sick. I had one last year...amazingly stiff, and I love the double. Think I'm going with the XX this year though just for availability issues.
