very cool ride, I just finished my first DHer too, I have a glory frame and also a 888R. I see you've taken the red decals off the fork...I did that too, and got the chrome ones from '05. It gives the fork such a cool look.

Thats a pretty good first bike.... congrats...

and I dont really believe the 43lbs, but I may be wrong... My guess is 46...

yeah i am not really sure about the weight either i dont think the scale is right. 46 pounds is my quess too. i will take it to a shop and have it weighed there.

as for the arrow dxh rims i havnt really got to test them out yet but hopfully will here soon. the guy that built my wheels had a hell of a time with them because of the weld that is on the rim. he said it is a pain in the ass on the turing stand becuase it always get in the way.
