I can't do the same, because I don't have one yet but I'm thinking about building something up.

By limiting it to 40lbs tops this should be a short but interesting thread.

40 lbs isn't really that hard to get under anymore. my 07 black diamond double has 7.5 of travel and is around 41.5 lbs stock. with single ply freeride tires and regular tubes that i have on it now it is dead on the 40lb mark and that is for an under $2000 bike. if i got rid of the telescoping seatpost (2 seatposts) it would definetly be under 40lbs. i think the 07 black diamond triple is stock at 38lbs with dh tubes etc. you could get it down to around 36lbs pretty easy.

by sub 40 you meant 40.76 right?
