Would love to see some behind-the-scenes on the lab testing they mentioned - I geek out over that stuff!

Hmmm... if your average DH frame weighs around 10 (ish) lbs (and I know the stock V10c is lighter), this is a significant percentage when they're fighting for fractions of a second at races. I'm all for the idea of custom "factory" bikes, as the tech. does eventually trickle down to consumers. However, as a consumer I also understand "race day" products vs. the durability needed for something I'll use all season or for years.
WHOA! 650 gram/1.43 lb weight saving! Geezers
