  • Should be quite nice when built up, looks like you've got a nice spec planned for it, and it's a lovely looking frame combo.

    Is the frame carbon or?

    thanks
    the swingarm is carbon the rest alu
    the picture is all carbon but its just for illustration purpose :wink:
  • Ah not bad, whats the weight of it with forks and everything?
  • coxy17coxy17 Posts: 401
    5.5lb on the website but not sure what that includes


    have ordered some ripwire gear cables in black and hope converters for my front hub

    frame weights more like 7lb as far as i know, 5.5lb for a alu 140mm bike is a seriously ambitious claim :lol:

    my new frames full carbon and weighs 6lbs :wink:

    the website said 5.5lb with out shock so 7lb with shock would not be a bad shout
  • Do like the look of the Meta, nice to ride as well as the head angle is quite slack so it shifts downhill.

    Ye 5.5lbs is a huge claim. My old Blur LTa medium weighed in at 6.8lbs ish and my Blur LTc in Large weighed in at 6.1lbs.

    sorry to go off topic, but is your blur really 6.1lbs??? the complete bike weighs mid 25lbs??
