    Lol, couldn't agree more...i just installed those last week; that was my exact reaction as well. It almost looks like fat bike tires. It rolls great up and down so far.

    Here's mine. Fun rig, no? Especially in wide carbon mode!

    We may be the last two guys in existence on this kind of bike with a traditional seatpost...LOL

    After a few months I'm feeling like I've gotten mine pretty well dialed. Austin riders will recognize that spot in the first pic.

    cracking up right now. My buddies give me so much crap that I won't / haven't gone with a seat dropper. Boy, you weren't kidding, our bikes are identical.

    Which rear shock are you running. I was thinking about going to the Rochshox Monarch RT3, because i didn't think I could run the RC3, is that what you're running? I currently have the Fox Float CTD , but have blown it out 2xs & rebuilt, not functioning properly now, again.

    Please let me know what your currently running and if you like it.

    Best,
    Chris

    Funny, mine gave me crap when I did get one....but that was a flaky early Crank Bros I got cheap a couple years ago pitched shortly thereafter....just haven't gotten back around to it since I ride for fun (with a bunch 'o smokers) so it's not a big deal to stop for 30 secs before the fun stretches of trail and adjust seat height...but mostly I just roll with a kind of neutral mid-height that pedals well enough and tell myself "Lay off the brakes and it'll all work out fine" when the going gets hairy. I'm going to grab a Thomson Covert one of these days and do the Graves Mod on one of the several XT front shifters I have kicking around.

    It's pretty easy to do better than the Float. Mine is a couple year old Monarch Plus, MM tune, originally run on another MojoHD. I really like it. It's the only shock I've run on this frame, but I've been through a couple Floats, one of which was push tuned, and a push tuned Monarch AM on previous Mojos. This Monarch Plus is the best of the bunch. Ibis recommends the LM tune (Light Comp damping, Medium rebound), I believe, on the Monarch Plus, but I would not want lighter LSC than how this shock is setup. This doesn't surprise me because Ibis seems to default to lighter compression than what I like for our local ledge drops and rocky tech climbs...

    As excellent as I think the M+ is, I might have tried a CCDB inline or X-Fusion Vector Air based on all the positive press on those, but I'd already blown the budget...and I have zero complaints on this shock.

    Ooops...remembering what thread this is... sorry for the hijack! We can always "take this outside".

    Built this up about 2 months ago. Have a Chromag TrailMaster saddle on it now and ordered an M986 XTR derailleur for it this week also As it sits right now it's at 27.xx pounds. Can't remember the finer numbers, but I believe it was getting near 28 pounds

    Just switched from riding many different FS bikes since '08 to a carbon hardtail. Absolutely loving the instant responsiveness this bike has on the trails. IMO it makes biking feel alive again and not feel like I'm wrestling and old Mare. There is no getting lazy or you will be punished.
