For those lucky enough to be out riding one of these beauties, what are they weighing in at?

I know Food's is 36.1, is that pretty average?

Just curious. Still trying to decide if I should get a VPX or a 6 Pack.

I know two different bikes. But if they are coming close in weight, that might help me make my decision.

Thanks,
tep

just look at frame weight

If weight is the deciding factor, just look at the frame weights. A large 6-Pack, I've weighed at 8.7 pounds. My Medium Uzzi weighs 10.2. A difference of 1.5 pounds, and part for part, you'll have a 1.5 pound lighter bike with the 6-Pack.

I don't know if mine is really "average", in general I have some really light stuff on it (i.e. the Flite saddle, carbon bar, mag pedals, XTR cranks)... I think most will probably weigh more as I'm hearing a lot of "saint" and "diabolous" for cranks. And I'm running trail/freeride tires with standard tubes, any thing DH would be 2-4 pounds heavier with 1200g tires w/DH tubes. I'm guessing the Kenetics I have on there are sub 800g.

I kind of thought mine would end up lighter (good thing I went with the Breakout+ at 5.8 rather than something heavier.) I have a full on DH bike, so my goal was to make the Uzzi as light as possible and still be able to drop & jump. Most of my riding is technical trail oriented, but I like the crazy stuff...
