Reviving a thread since I have a "new" bike. Had to get something together after I found my X2 broken, but not break the bank. This works.

A portly 28.5lb FS rig, but there's weight to lose. Just need to get some dry trails to get out and ride it. First ride will probably be a race on Wednesday. Yes, I need to remove the stickers off the rims.
