Yip, pedals, decent tyres rather than the crap Michelin ones that they come with and wider bars. I've changed the seat and post to an SDG I beam and significantly cut down the steerer and got rid of all the spacers, changed the stem for a Funn integrated, and bars for Gravity 777's, I do run quite heavy pedals (Atomlab GI's) but they just feel good, changed the tyres to a 2.7 high roller on the front and 2.5 minion R on the back.

I'm pretty happy with it. The bike does feel alot lighter than the 08?

I would still like a Yeti. I know of a 2007 303 that someone is trying to sell. There still the dream bike.....

Looks rad, but me thinks yon scales are off, my bike with a lot heavier frame and a few other heavy bits is only marginally heavier.

Trust me the scales are spot on.

I do scales for a living.

Interesting, the scales I used were also spot on (at a test lab) so I guess some of the claimed weighs for those frames is on the low side of reality and my frame on must be on the high side of reality (never weighed it when it was bare)

I swapped all the stuff back onto my 08 DH1 off the new one and the old bike was only 500gms heavier than the new one. The new bike does feel alot lighter when your riding it though.

What about you?
I'll put one on pinkbike soon, I'll try to do it the next time I'm out on the hill. (Could take 3 weeks cause of exams, but probably go out sooner cause I'll be bored from studying).
