Wish I Were Riding said:
That's pretty damn cool. My rigid 29er weighs more than that, and it's a 1x9. Seems like most weight gains would be from the wheels and tires.

How much have you ridden it?
Except for the tires/wheels, probably a few hundred miles off road. I have many more miles on most of the build kit that has been used on several bikes now. I have about a half dozen rides with the tires/wheels. It is probably the worst time of the year to be running those tires here in So Cal. Their greatest weakness is in shallow loose stuff over hardpack. The float over soft stuff and grip well on hardpack and rocks. But shallow soft stuff is not enough to float over, and there are no knobs to bite through to the hardpack.
