Yea, I'm in your boat, I've been interested in them a lot since a write up of the Blitz in the January issue of Decline magazine (which, btw, you should check out if you can get a hold ot the issue). I really like the Blitz for its looks, adjustability and price. The frame weighs about 10# 's, which comes out to be a pretty heavy bike for what its made for. I know there's a few people on here who have experience with em, so hopefully they can give some feedback.HomerSimpson said:I saw this at my local bike shop but they didn't have any built up yet. I'm really interested in getting one.
I agree completely with taking a little extra weight so it won't break on me. I'm by no way a weight weanie, I ride a 37# bike right now. I think if I built up a Blitz with my current setup, it would still weigh under 40#'s, easily. Actually, in the Decline article I mentioned earlier, they have the bike setup with a 66, and it weighs just under 40. Yea, I really sound like I'm not a weight weenie, huh? I'm looking into getting a Banshee scream, and that's already a heavy enough bike, and lately I've taken notice of the Transition Preston FR, which I reeeeally like a lot.HomerSimpson said:You're the second person to comment about it's weight. I'm willing to take a little extra weight for a stouter frame that isn't going to break. I'm not a total freerider but then I'm not an total xc guy.
