Haven't weighed it, but probably around 28lbs.

DC: Did you buy from Commencal Canada or build up a frame from somewhere else?

And that blue V10 looks really pretty.

Commencal Canada didn't have frames yet, so I got it from Commencal USA and shipped to Point Roberts. It's last year's frame, on sale. I'm really enjoying it so far.

Oh man that carbon Warden is NICE! Almost makes me want to start over on mine… Almost - the Delirium is such a blast to ride.

SaaWeet,
Building one up this weekend in Orange, but man that black is sooo nice and has me sooo confused on what colour I "really" want.

Cant wait to try a 170mm x 180 mm travel bike again. I've been in the 150mm x 160mm (or less) travel realm for the past few years.

What is yours weighing in at? I'll be happy if I can get mine to 32lbs

To be honest I have no idea! I am guessing around 33ish lbs now with new SG casing rubber in the rear and no real weight weenie-ism (plus coil shock). I'd seen lots hyped online as 30.xx lb but likely not large frames, and certainly more costly to build. Seems like lots on paper but there's something magical in the geo that makes it feel only marginally more climbing than my old 30lb endorphin. It's also A LOT lighter than my 40lb podium was - and seems 95% as fast going down up at Prevost the past couple of weeks.

Low 30's is just fine for a bike like this, I did however weigh mine and it came in at a very surprising 31.5 lbs, size medium.

My squishy beast after 2 straight days at WBP. Thought I'd be undergunned at the park, but the bike held up great and was not holding me back at all, though it would have been nice to have a bit more fork that my 140mm Sektors up in Garbo. A Pike at 160 would be the ticket I'm thinking

29er Kona Satori 130mm with RS RT3 Debonair. I ran 27.5 30mm rims with 2.8" plus tires to see how they would shake down, will need more time on local stomping grounds to really tell. Thinking to keep these wheels with the Honzo primarily and run 29s on the Satori.

Picked up a Norco Optic A9.1. Been out of the loop for a couple years. Love this whole long reach thing. First pedally ride where my low back doesn't hurt at the end in a long time, yet it comes with a 50mm stem.

Also surprised that there isn't much I would change right away. Short stem, wide enough bar, and the stock grips are even decent! If I didn't live in Saskatchewan I would probably change the rear tire and maybe brakes. That said the brakes did fine when I did a lap of squid line for the maiden voyage. We'll see if the e-ten post holds up.

Unfortunately it didn't give me instant Bryn Atkinson asphalt cutties abilities.

First 29er. Climbs roots and rocky stuff like a goat and to be honest I never really thought about it on the descents.

Overall I'm pretty stoked on the bike.

Check my stuff for sale!

Nearly a year old now, been a while since I was not on a hardtail, wow is this thing fast

10 speeds, 26 inch wheels and no carbon. Apparently I am a lucky one who's DB inline hasn't exploded…

slow is smooth and smooth is fast

Is the bb drop quite noticeable putting 27.5+ wheels on a 29er frame? Seems like itd be almost an inch

I've been on my Prime for nearly 2 years with the DB Inline and it's been flawless.
