The fact that flame throwers exist is proof that someone somewhere said "I'd sure like to set those people over there on fire but I'm just not close enough to get the job done."

 It weighs 15lbs. The stock frame weighed 27lbs. I probably could have went with a thinner wall on some of the tube and saved a little more weight, but I didn't want it to feel like a piece of spaghetti either. It will be interesting to see what the dry weight of the complete bike will be. After building the frame and weighing different parts it makes me wonder about some of the dry weights I've seen. Anyway I'm shootin for 350lbs dry, but don't know if I'll make it without CF wheels.

Can't wait for DucStock....lots of work left. I'll start a build thread soon.

How is the rigidity compared to stock? Or is that something you only know once you get the bike together? Tongue
