- Cove G Spot opinions
snaps, out of curiosity what does yours weigh?
Mine when it had v1 66’s was around the 42lb mark, i didn’t mind this as it was only for “playing” around on. It also made the front end uber slack and very hard work to pedal on anything remotly uphill. I’ve since stuck some Pikes on which has made a large difference to pedal-ability but still effing heavy to pedal around..
I appreciate DH tubes, dualply highrollers will be adding some weight, as will saint cranks, but i can’t see it loosing that much weight?

That pic was taken in the Alps with dual position air Lyriks, big brakes & dual ply DH tyres – about 38lbs
With lighter wheels, tyres & brakes I’ve had it down to 33.5lbs – the DPA forks make a big difference to its ease of climbing.
Here it is with Maverick DUC32s & a Rohloff hubgear @ 34.4lbs

Mid 30’s would be my guess. I have a new version medium with talas 160mm, and a dhx air.Posted 4 years ago
Its an amazing bike, however its a bit heavy and to be honest overkill for trail centers etc. I use mine for messing around and dh and jumping off stuff.
Don’t let that put you off though. It is an absolutely amazing bike and goes like a rocket as soon as you point it downhillValleyboy123Member
I’ve got one, 2011 “new shape” model. It’s outstanding, so versatile, i’ve ridden the xc trails at Glentress, Innerliethen and Cwmcarn and i’ve done uplifts at Cwmcarn and Inners.
They’re bombproof but not light, i’ve got a coil shock. coil lyrics, downhill rims and tyres and it weighs about 36lbs. When I bought mine it was a decision between the G shock and a Slopestyle 2, I went with the Cove because you can fit a front mech and run a triple or a double.
If you want a lighter type of bike maybe a Nomad?
