:welcome: Another welcome to the forum. A very excellent dirt tool. FSA is usually heavier than advertised. Mt Zoom bars are cheap and light.

changed the heavy bars to fsa nano flats.
also tuning the saddle as was so solid before,now has a bit of spring to it,but will proberly change to a tioga spyder or a Your air camel saddle soon.
