If anyone is looking for a size small Chromag Surface, spotted this on Pinkbike.

has anyone tried the newer larger Maxxis Beaver 2.25 yet? the original is a great tire, but mighty slim and light. the 2.25 could be a great tire especially if it comes in lighter than advertised.

Gorgeous. I am surprised by the weight though, looking at the spec I would have figured a bit lighter. Doesn't bode well for my slightly lesser build. :)

I would have thought it would be over 30 lbs. There's nothing light on that build except the drivetrain. Nice, solid build.

I thought Flows were fairly light (for AM wheels) and same with the new Pike fork. No big deal. What's a pound or two here or there?

:clap:

The Flow EXs are beefed up over their older Flow sibling. The upside is that for burly AM riding, it's the right choice.

I have a Spank Oozy wheelset for my Rootdown as well as a 2012 Fox F34 RLC (black). Chromag bars, stem, saddle. X-fusion hilo seatpost (pretty good for the price.) For cassette and cranks I will go xt and get a narrow-wide 30t chainring and a 42t cog from wolf tooth, race face or one up. I suppose my weight won't be that different from Morgans.

M/L frame by the way. Blue.

I don't get it.

You could run a faster, more fun FS that weighs the same or less for similar $.

Sure they look coolish (like beards) and I love the company but come on guys, hardtails.

HARDTAILS!!!

I want to know the HTA on that sucker.

Heavily padded seats reduce anal intruder events I bet

HTA looks about 71, but the STA looks about 63.

The better measurement would be BB height…it looks like you could hang out and have a picnic under that chainring
