World's Lightest Mob... 7.3 kg/15.4 lbs.

15.4 lbs/ 7.3 kg...

 Seriously!!! Now my first thoughts when I received entry and saw the photos of this bike were... "What the hell is really going on here??? 
Did a couple of creative and bored Austrian bike shop mechanics break into the shops weight watchers cabinet and just build the lightest thing they could with no intention of ever riding it??? Foam grips... Carbon bar and weird uncut road fork I think but anyway... very different from what I'm used to seeing.

So, I contact the owner for some details on the bike and hopefully a bit of validation on the claim so you all know it's legit.

The Validation starts now...

As it turns out the owner of this Mob is WRC Rally Driver Kris Rosenberger who had this built as his pumptrack bike and claims "It rolls like crazy." 

It looks very twitchy and fast... I'm just happy it will have a real bar & stem soon ;)
FYI... Kris has a new 831 ready for the front too.

What he looks like on 2 wheels... either way he's throwin' down and having fun!

Schralpin' the pump track is what this beast was made for...
