Just got it all together last weekend.

On my not always accurate Park scale it came in at 32.3lbs. A little more than what I wanted, but about what I expected considering certain parts. Some stuff was takeoff from my Uzzi VPX which I sold as I wanted something lighter and more pedal friendly.

Build:
2010 Nomad 2
2011 Fox Float 160 FIT RLC
2010 Fox DHX Air
Chris King 1.5 Devo Headset, set up for taperd steer tube
Hope Pro2 Hubs

2009 Shimano XT Brake levers
Old style Saint Calipers
Truvativ Holzfeller WC Bar
SRAM XO Shifters
XT F Der
SRAM XO R Der
Shimano XTR 970 Cranks
e13 Turbocharger Bash
Crank Bros Candy pedals

Super clean. The only thing you'll probably end up wanting is some sort of chain tensioner like a Black Spire stinger. Makes for a silent ride and no more dropped chains.

I have an e13 DRS from my Uzzi. Didnt want to run it because its heavy. If I start to get a lot of dropped chains I might reconsider.

A Stinger or the DMR one looks really, really cool although you have to buy the dual pulley seperately.

Awesome bike!

what you use for chainkeeper?
Im not, theres no guide on there. So far I havent dropped the chain, but Im considering one simply to put more tension on the chain so it bounces around less

sorry, I use the wrong word...

What you use to protect the paint of the swingarm?

Many thanks!


This is by far the best stuff I have ever used. Very sticky, yet doesnt leave a residue when you peel it off. Very pliable so it will easily conform to any shape, rubbery like so when the chain slaps it instead of cutting through it, it just absorbs the hit so it is very long lasting. Also, I use the 1" wide variety which makes running it in small places easier. It comes in a variety of widths and lengths, and also different thicknesses.
