    Sweet looking ride. Congrats!

    Have you weighed it yet? How about a ride report after you get it dirty?

    With everything on it came out to 20.02lbs. (Size Large)

    3 rides in so far and let me tell you. LOVE the switch from a 29er to 650b. Especially down here in Florida where the trails are man-made and super technical. It was the right choice for me without a doubt!

    Very sweet build! Definitely a lightening bolt on the trails I bet. How do you like that fork?

    I had the SLR's on my 29er and they were awesome. For an XC alloy wheel I truly believe there is nothing else in the market that compares with their bullet proof hubs, stiffness, weight and pricepoint. They are incredible wheels in my opinion

    The fork is really nice. I had the Sid XX on my last bike however with cable lockout. I will say the hydraulic lockout makes life a little easier when it comes time to use it. The fork itself though performs really well. I've kinda been spoiled with great forks so I don't know much different...

    I ran a cheaper version of Mavic when I did Tour Divide (26"). The front is still rolling after 4.5k miles! Mavic is solid in my book.

    I'm using an XFusion Velvet right now. If I upgrade, I was thinking Magura.

    That's reassuring to say the least!!! Not sure about the Maguras. I havent ever looked into them

    For my carbon HT build I went with a Fox Float Terralogic. I really like this fork and how well it works with a hardtail. It's like magic how it resists your pressure downward on the fork when hammering out of the saddle, yet is compliant with hits from the trail. When you're in tight single track with short steep climbs it automatically locks out so you aren't constantly switching a lockout on and off.

    Love the bike. I just took delivery of my custom build Scale 700 Premium (Large also)… I also chose the Mavic Crossmax SLRs.. and completely agree.. best mountain bike wheels you can get. I'm having a little trouble adjusting to the long top tube and relaxed head angle though. What stem length do you run?

    That statement is exactly why I'm looking at the 27.5's as well... I was test riding the 710 over the weekend, and I liked the feel a lot!

    Congrats on the new ride!!!

    Awesome dude! I'm actually running a 110 stem. The long tob tube is interesting. On my 29er i had a set back seatpost and am now running a 0 degree. I moved my saddle forward about an inch and everything is working great so far. Very happy!

    Good! Thanks, its nice to get another perspective. I think I am going to be okay. I am running a -6D 100 stem.. but had to push the saddle back about a half inch. Still in the phase of dialing it in… Really unbelievable how little these bikes weigh (pretty much same weight as yours) ….a full 1.5 pounds lighter than my 09.
