    Only the 16" frame has a bent top tube for more standover height for shorter riders.

    after a couple rides i think i may need to switch out the stem for something shorter. i'm 5'6 so my arms are pretty short, and my shoulders get pretty sore after riding and being hunched over trying to reach the bars, any recommendations? also, i've never had an air fork before, what is the red elastic thing on the fork for? i've just been riding it as it came out of the box

    The red elastic ring is a travel/sag indicator. It helps you keep track of how much or far the fork moves--very useful for set ups and adjustments.

    JensonUSA or similar always has good deals on Easton close out stems. The 50 series is a decent price/ weight compromise and the parts are good quality. You can find 50 Series 60mm stems and hi-rise bars to set up the cock-pit to your liking. Good luck.

    You may not be getting the most out of your fork if you are not setting it up properly. There are lots of youtube how to videos on suspension setup. Also you will need a shock pump I bought this one from amazon and it has worked just fine.

    Re: New Airborne Goblin

    105 or 110 I can't remember. It's on their site.

    Edit- it's under the geometry tab on their site. Depends on frame size.

    after some quick research, i am thinking this bar and stem combo

    Easton EA50 Riser Monkey Bar 2012 | Easton | Brand | www.PricePoint.com
    Easton EA50 Stem 2013 | Easton | Brand | www.PricePoint.com (60mm)

    what do you guys think?

    That is the exact spec I installed on my Wife's Goblin. A hi-rise EA50 Monkey Bar and 60 mm stem. It shortens the reach and provides a more upright seating position. Add some Peaty Lock on grips (Lizard Skins) to the order to make your life easier. They won't slip and they are easy to take on and off.

    My 16" came with a 90 mm stem. First few rides in tight switch backs were difficult because I felt like I had to push the bike around the turn. Switch to a 60 mm stem and a wider bar, and the bike totally transformed. Now I can right the tight twisty trails with ease. It' every bit as nimble as my old stumpjumper was now.

    I've been drooling over this bike for the past month, and finally went ahead and purchased a 16 on Monday night/Tuesday morning. After a Heat win and drinking with some friends I started staring again at the freaking bike on the website and reviews. Then I read through Jeremy's explanation for the origin of the name Goblin and that made me buy one on the spot. I work with aircraft for a living so in my inebriated state you sold me at like 2 in the morning! Damn you Jeremy for making me spend more money!!!

    I know...just being sarcastic. The bad part is I got my AWB# on Wednesday and now I'm being sent to Panama for a week. I'd rather be here and take my new bike out the same day!!! Not more work! I gotta win the lottery.

    The shifting cables should be easy.. Although you might have to get new cables and cut and reuse the housings (I use my dremel for cutting housings). However, I am not sure of the exact details of the Hydraulic cables although I've seen some YouTube vids of it and it looks even easier than shift cables.

    For the dérailleurs, Park Tool has good info on bike maintenance and repair including cable shortening and adjustments. http://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help. You also need a good quality cable/housing cutting tool.

    Can someone tell me what this is?

    Just got the bike...looks really good in person! Derailleurs need a little adjusting but other than that I'm good to go...except what is in this bag?

    Thanks,

    Rick

    Thank you...so the screws are useless. What are the cable ends for? Brake lines?

    Shift cables... If you look at the ends on your derailluers now you will see them there. The spares are if you need to pull out the slack. I didn't need to do hat on mine
