Thanks!

It was 32.5 when I put it on the scale at work before I got my new wheelset.

Revised since then:

OLD:
Rims: Sun Ditch witch (rhyno lites)
Hubs: Shimano XT Disk rear, Marzocchi Qr20 plus. (TANKS!!)

New:
Rims: Sun Singletrack
Hubs: Hope Pro II.

I figure the additional weight loss would be about .5-.75 lbs in wheelset alone.

Any reason to flip shock down?
he got one of the very 1st production frames with a '07 rp23 and rockers that werent machined out for the side facin air valve. i hear the '08 faces fwd and negates the need for the rocker mod. he either had to flip it or get out the dremmel tool. guess what he did?

Cactus is pretty much right... The RP23's were supposed to have longer fill valves on them, but my frame came with the short one.I didnt want to dremel my rockers and, so Turner sent me the correct part, but in the meantime I wanted to be able to adjust the air without removing the shock. Its back to normal position now....
