I picked up the bike a week or so ago. It's still missing the final brakes, stem and rear skewer.
It's 28lbs exactly according to the home scales so I might get another 1/2 lb off when it's done.
I took it to Coed Y Brenin this weekend to do the Beast route. I will have to spend the next few months reprogramming my brain to stop trying to ride around everything and just ride over it.
I still have to sort out the suspension as it's currently on the default to bed it in, but the ride was incredibly smooth. What impressed me most was the lack of movement at the shock when out of the saddle (read none). The frame is so structurally solid it feels like a hardtail as crazy as that sounds.
The rear doesn't feel active, but is - you just have to trust it's working - and checking the compression ring afterwards prooves it is.
So far I'm very happy. I need to sort out the riding position as well. My hands started aching near the end - but that might have something to do with the route; which was fantastic.
