    That looks great, I like how trek is going a little more subdued with their logos.

    I'm your hight, maybe .5in taller and I felt most comfortable on the 19. I can ride the 17.5 but felt I could get the power down a little better on the larger frame. I'm coming off a F400 cannondale with a stretched out feel and I sit much more upright on the 19.

    It's glorious!!! It's like unveiling a mythic creature.

    I really want to buy a Superfly Elite SL (hardtail), but not enough money just yet. Another +1 for the stem flip.

    It will be some variant on the SID XX, it has the X-loc hydraulic remote.

    I prefer the RCT3 myself.....lighter and more 'adjustable' with the 3-position switch.

    Fork:
    RockShox SID World Cup XX w/Solo Air, E2 carbon crown & tapered carbon steerer, remote lockout, rebound, custom G2 Geometry w/51mm offset, 15QR thru axle, 100mm travel.

    Have not had a chance to ride the bike yet, sticking with the Top Fuel 9.9 through 24hr of old pueblo.

    Wheelies

    OMG ---> have these2very expensive bike.....must reduce quiver.

    Sweet ride!

    Ride the bike with the stem positioned the way it fits you, not a bunch of e-critics. We're not time trialling on the road, riding like Superman, we're mountain biking.

    Slamming the stem generally puts you into a more forward position on the bike which some people find more comfortable for when you're in the saddle for long periods of time. You'll generally find XC riders will go for such a riding position (higher saddle, lower bars) to increase pedaling efficiency. As the Superfly 100 Pro SL is Trek's top end FS XC bike, it seems a slammed stem is a highly recommended option.

    But, usual disclaimer, ride a cockpit that feels right for you, don't be afraid to try new things.

    That's the only 26'er I'd like to ride. Let's here a ride report between the Superfly 100 and the Top Fuel 9.9. That would be an epic battle

    Was curious about the stem as I may try a lower position on mine. I have an elite superfly 100 on order but still waiting on it to come it. Curious when you preordered this one and when you received it?

    Stem doesn't need to be flipped. Folks think they do b/c that's the way most 26" bikes where, with the taller HT's.

    This particular bike is also running a flat bar, making the flipped-up stem make even more sense.
    If he flipped it down, he'd probably need a riser bar, bringing hand-position back to the same place.

    I always get a kick of folks who run them flipped down with a riser.
