I think Nino's Swiss neutrality has come to an end because he's riding a tank into battle

My point was that you can add about 500g - 1000g of salt to the Spark's stated weight on the website.

Yes I understood that to be the case. It justs that that salt is a lot of weight for the stated purpose. Everyone seems to understate the weight or their 29er bikes.

I've never seen a sub  10kg 29er with pedals, bottle cages that didn't have super light aftermarket race day only parts fitted

This probably deserves its own new thread, but Cannondale has also internalized their feelings shock on their new Jekyll.
Well, sort of. It's inside the 'Gravity Cavity' (Groan & Facepalm)

I like. The shock being hidden is more due to necessity as a result of the suspension design than any other reason.

If only I was in the market...:/
