    I looked into these a lot. I tried to buy one even with the intent of upgrading it, but the seller canceled my order.

    Oh yeah, I totally agree.

    I just was hoping to spend closer to 100/shock.
    Maybe that's too low, but if I have to spend more, it's going to be a while before I can get this rolling.

    I haven't weighed it yet, but I would guess around 75lbs. It's pretty heavy.
