In reply to Brotus7 :

That's great info - thanks! Your DHF is actually about 200g lighter that I expected.

I talked to the shop owner last night. He's going to re-mount the used Ikons that were on it when I test rode it & I'll see if they hold up for me. I sure like the way it felt around town on them, and he didn't have any trouble trail riding with them, so we'll see. If they do hold up I'll just buy a new set from him.

For what it's worth, my Maxxis Minion DHF were super heavy (in 26 inch form)

Edit: apparently it's manufactured like this to help guide the chain over the wide cassette!

Well apparently I bent my derailleur somehow. :-/


I must have run over something on trail the previous weekend, because it sounded a bit off all of last week. A new one is $118 so not cheap, but not horrible. I'm going to straighten this one as best as I can & send it for now.
