Ahh, I feel better just getting that out of my system.

I'm a former racer, used to ride a custom built 22lb S-Works, racing CC around the midwest. I stopped riding for 5-6 years for a number of reasons, mostly because I had $10,000 worth of bikes stolen my renters insurance wouldn't cover. Anyways now I live out in the Western Slope of Colorado and ride only for fun.

I wanted to build a bike that was fool/bomb-proof and would be suitable for everything from lift-accessed DHing riding to 6 hour backcountry rides. Since I'm not racing and I hate breaking stuff I paid no attention to weight while building my bike.

On-One Inbred 456, RS Pike 454 Air, X9/Juicy 7, Tike AM wheelset, Time Atacs, Holzfeller Cranks set up 2x9 with bashguard, Nevegal in back, Maxxis Ardent front.

Part by part I ended up over 30lbs. And its ****ing awesome, I love my bike.

Nice bike!
Sorry to hear about the loss. That would be a hard one to deal with.
Congrats on your move from one Midwest to Western Slope transplant to another.:thumbsup:
