To compliment the "Post Your Rush" thread. (But not as a sticky), this thread can list your 'as ridden' Rush builds.
We've all seen the silly lite Scalpels (Eliflap...cough, cough). Lets see what people are actually ridding as marathon bikes (I imagine there will still be some lite Carbon Rush's).

A small pic on the scales will be nice. How about this format:

Installed XTR front DC shifter, and Caliper, and RR tire with stans - rear to do

See Post:
Summary Post - at end of thread

[Please excuse the mess in my basement and my cell pic]

[You may notice a disc hanging from the pedal - this is my old 160mm rotor. I have an Avid Cleansweep G3 140mm on order to fit the rear IS mount XTR caliper. All the bolts are still bolted in to the wheel for an accurate weight. When the new rotor is in, weight will dip a little]

You should consider the Thomson Masterpiece if weight saving is your goal and you like Thomson posts.

Nicely done Nath01978, I can't possibly imagine shedding another ~5lb's from my bike.

24.7 I believe was the last weight I saw. Size Large- just had her completely rebuilt this Winter with sweet ceramics in the SI's -- I think I feel a difference.;) Sorry no scale. I still love this bikes clean lines and she is a blast to ride.

Thanks. Actually that's a pretty accurate weight. (without pedals, mind you) ....I have a picture somewhere on a scale.

88+ lefty fork
Conti Supersonic Tires
All Ti/Alu bolts and rotors
Foam grips
Ceramic BB and pulleys
no granny ring.
Older USE post (130g)

I haven't ridden the bike in about a year, but it's great.. the perfect "trail" bike as far as I'm concerned.

xcfisher, nice Rush!!
But I don´t believe that weight 20.5lb.
The Nath´s Rush have lighter components and weight 21. For example the wheels: difference is 0,85lb
More photos please
