- Show me your enduro/all-mountain/newfangled marketing term bikes.
No idea. Just telling you what the scales say! (accurate Salter carp scales). Coil forks and shock, dual ply tyres and dh tubes, a 400g bar and reverb etc. I don’t mind though, it feels as capable as my dh bike on descents and I’m usually ahead of my mates on climbs.
Still, if it weighed 26lbs I’d be even happier!Posted 4 years agotwohatsMember

@twohats was never that bothered about Nomads before, but thats a cracker you’ve got there.
Thanks, its been a work in progress for the last year.

@twohats – loving that SC and colour scheme
Cheers, though not so much of a colour scheme, just lots of black and grey!Posted 4 years agostevedeMember
I was thinking the same regarding that alpine, I had mine at 30.3lbs (with dmr vaults fitted rather than my mallet dh pedals) before I replaced the rp23 with a ccdb air, put a carbon mrp amg top guide/bash on and replaced the shite but light ashima rotors with ice tecs but my spec looks to be lighter than that one – carbon sram cranks with spiderless n/w chainring, carbon havocs/Thomson stem, xtr brakes, selle Italia Troy lee flite, x fusion Hilo (which is actually lighter than my reverb on the other bike surprisingly), crossmax wheels, conti barons, xt cassette, zee mech, saint shifter, devilles. It’s back up just over 31lbs now but it rides better. You can’t get an alpine much under 30lbs without compromising what the bike is actually intended for imo.Posted 4 years agopbooker1995Member
Well it’s running fox 34’s. Hope Race evo m4 brakes with 180/160 floating rotors. Rp23. Light set of tyres but not compromised.
Easton carbon bars and hope grips. XT rear mech and cranks with XTR Shifter. Flows on pro 2 evo’s.
@glasgowden. Measured on some part tool scales at my LBS so pretty sure it’s spot on.
Pedals also only weigh 350g so that helps.
If I’m honest, when I bought it 5 months ago it was 34 LBS. And I wanted to get it below 30lbs without making it less of an AM bike. With a good choice of solid but light components I have managed it.

pbooker – my bad, didn’t realise you were running 34’s, thought they were 36’s, sounds about right with light pedals and spesh control casings keeping the weight down on the wheels. I had coil lyriks on mine before the devilles so although the devilles are a heavy fork they were still a weight saving over the lyriks!Posted 4 years agoTonyDubyaMember
@endurokid first impressions are good, top tube is a nice length and the cockpit feels natural, so that’s a good thing. It’s a bit of a fatty and 31lbs without pedals, but rides light.
I popped my knee over Christmas, will hopefully give this it’s first ride in anger late March, will update you then!Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber

People often add the component weights of their bikes and call that the weight, when a good set of scales sometimes would unhinge their theories
Spec list for mine with the Manufactures weights came within 300g which I put down as cables, grease and variables like stans fluid etc.Posted 4 years agotomasoSubscriber
Here is my Pitch coming down from the Fox at GrizedalePosted 4 years ago
And clearing the steep climb up to Carron Crag (only first bit, not all the way…)
I desire shiny new metal but there is absolutely nothing wrong with the Pitch. Dual position Lyrik are a revelation Bike climbs and descends perfectly.
Quite a bit, I get to ride a few bikes through work etc. Treks, Oranges, Santa Cruz. All good bikes but the Evil fits me the best and was an awesome price point hence why I bought one. Also they are a bit of bike porn 😆
Had a Mega before fitted with a DHX 5.0 which I loved but found the back end a little flexy in some situations (Was an early one).
This is far more direct and stiffer, no side to side flex in the swingarm so if the back steps out on a root or rock etc. then finds grip again it really fires you back on line. (if that makes sense?!)Grip levels on it are unreal!
Pedaling wise, I’m not as fit as I once was but sit and spin and theres no noticeable bob at all, if you stand up over the front and power down the thing absolutely skoots forward! I run mine in Trail shock setting all the time never use climb and have a 375mtr climb out of the house on a road up to the mountain.
Size wise, i’d try and sit on one, I’m 5’8 and went for the Medium/Long and run a 40mm stem on it. Medium had a better seat tube but felt to short, but its all personal. I like long top tubes for some reason!
Mud clearance wise, not had a problem even on a local Avalanche race when they’d cut new trails in and it was a proper clog fest, it seems to clear itself due to the swingarm shape.
Descent wise, I can’t go quick enough to test it! Fair few top 10’s on the local strava tracks and a decent showing at BikePark Wales.
Poppy and playful is correct, feels like a smaller travel bike in the way you can move it round but then happily crashes through anything!
