Here's mine:

By no means is it the lightest or newest, but I've done a few upgrades recently (new brakes, fork, etc.).
Last time I weighed it, it was around 47lbs (pretty decent for a Scream).

what I'm finding interesting is how quiet this thread has been compared to years past.

One of my regular riding buddies is still riding his Scream for the 6th season. At 195lbs or so he punishes it but it's still rock solid

Surprised to see a couple of DH bikes in here running Stans Flows. Especially as I run them on my XC bike! They've been solid as a rock on said XC bike, but I hadn't considered running them on the big bike.

How do people running Flows on the shore find they hold up? I'd be worried that the extra stress of big bike twonking would be a bit much for them, but the light weight would be very nice.

Ran my Flows for the first time on the big bike last season. Got 4 summer months of solid 5+ days a week riding on them without having to touch the spokes once. The rear rim finally cracked, but they lasted longer than my 721s did, so they are winners in my book.

I run them on everything from my 4X bike to my DH bike and I have no complaints!

Just Ride.

Who shuttles anymore? Way more fun pedalling about on the AM.

But I just can't see myself on an AM bike at Whistler all season at my 230-ish lbs.

But way more fun descending on the DH.

I like to hit every rock I can find and the Flows have held up very nicely. All depends on the wheel build too. I will admit I didn't have high hopes for them considering their light weight, but they're performing better than I had expected.

DH is so 2011. You need to focus on "trail".

Riding the Park is different. I love that stuff too. Shuttling is a pain in the ass though.
