Hi guys, I'm new to this forum. Great site by the way.

I've also have the same bike, all standard. Just stopped riding it the last few weeks as I've bought myself the new Mtrax HT 2.0.

Had the Dyna-Tech over ten years and I think its time for a resto on mine now as its getting a bit tatty. Still a great solid bike to ride.

If anyone is interested I'll try post some pictures up of the Dyna-Tech and the Mtrax.

I have a Giant XTC2 with carbon bars, carbon seat post and rear triangle on frame being carbon. I've also spend loads on a lightweight stem, seat etc etc and the Dyna tech is still waaaaay lighter, and thats with all standard parts! I'll weigh the two and put the results on here so you can see the difference.

:shock: Well would you adam 'n eve it! The Giant is 26lbs and the Dyna-Tech is 25.7lbs :cry: I though the Dyna-Tech felt a lot lighter! The thing that gets me is the Giant has Sussy forks and the Dyna doesn't! Oh well is seems the money was well spent on the carbon stuff. I think i could get the weight down to 25lbs on the Dyna with some little changes. The seat must weigh about 5lbs! :lol:
