    I am not big fan of red-white 2011 Demos, but I really like the shape of this frame :)
    Awesome bikes, guys!

    Mine is more of a FR/mini DH but its going to be my only bike for 2011, built it up a month ago. Since this pic i added a ti coil. It sits at 34.4 lbs right now. switching the brakes to Formula the one's when the 2011's come out and might switch the cranks too. Also rock shox reverb for AM days and I have mavic 823's laced to hope hubs and DH tires as a DH wheelset. Should have everything covered...

    Why not? It's laterally stiff and its 8" of travel is plush and forgiving. Yes, it gives up a pound to the Fox 40 and the internal valving may not be as sophisticated; but it performs well for me and RST has been very good to me over the years.

    My old 2009 trek session is workin pretty good right now. It is hard to justify a new frame for next season as the winter gets underway. Maybe in the march/april timeframe, and if I can get some money saved, I can get on a 2011 Demo or M9.

    I did splurge and got a new Dorado Pro for 2011 season tho. :p

    I'll be on the same bike this year with a few upgrades over the winter months



    Will be getting a new rear hoop laced up, a fresh set of Rubber Queens, ESI Chunky grips, Avy cart for the 888, Atlas FR flat bar and maybe a set of Crampons.

    I call bs on your bs. That frame weights what? 5.2kg with shock? I've seen old glorys < 37lbs so why it can't be light? Because m9 users are not weight wennies? My legend is 36.9 right now and the frame is only 200g lighter.


    Cool rig Ben. Any changes in the Gambler for the next year?

    Since you "have not seen any M9's under 40lbs" it is impossible to obtain that weight? Your a complete moron! My two previous M6's were 37.75lbs with 40's and 36.90lbs with a Boxxer WC. The frame weights were EXACTLY same as my M9, 11.36LBS with a 400lbs steel spring (the M6 had a 350lb spring.) I just pulled the majority of the parts over from my last M6 (not the one in the link.) Here is a link to my first m6:
    http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?p=4536845#poststop
    Scroll down to the 7th post and you will see the weight. Please feel free to rejoin this thread once you learn a thing or two about bike weights.Thanks

    i went from 43.5-44lbs from one of my other DH bikes to my M9 at 40.25lbs....i couldnt imagine it at 37lbs....a 6-7lb difference from my old bike would be nuts.

    All my DH bikes have been between 36-37Lbs. I wouldn't have it any other way.

    meh, i rode DH for 9 years before i started to care about weight. im sure this bike would ride just as good at 44lbs as it would at 37lbs.
    im 220lbs, im sure i could stand to lose more weight then my bike can :D

    I rode my buddies m6 which was about 41lbs and it felt solid. If anything it felt a little more stable and was less flick-able then my old m6. Regardless to stay it defiantly didn't pedal as well.

    Small Black chrome frame is 11.56 with CCDB 350 steel spring, axle
    Twenty6 seat clamp, I-beam alum cut to 8", I-fly saddle
    Saint brakes and 165 cranks, E-Thirteen 36t, Lg-1+, Canfield Cramptons
    2010 Boxxer Team, Point One DM stem, CroMag OSX black chrome bars, X.O shifter, X.O ss der, 11-28 SLX cassette, PC991 cross step chain
    Intense lock-ons, Twenty6 gascaps.

    41.2 lbs
    721s would lower the weight but the durability becomes an issue.
    don't know if 729s are worth it. If I put Deity Black Label bars on it instead of the OSX I could save some weight but not much
    waiting on my ti spring.
