    [QUOTE=inter;9943552]My AM rig, at 26 lbs, cant complain, coming from 32.5 lbs beast. Now I need to ride some gnarly stuff.

    While I'm biased towards the Foes lines....the Mojo is a sweet lookin' frame.

    Thx. Im looking for 60mm stem actually. It comes with 100mm, too long.
    The chainguide actually 2 blackspire stingers, one for top one bottom. They works!

    I ve seen red color foes before, beautiful bike. This grey one u have is beautiful as well, looks fast on downhill. Just an idea, you should take off the GD boot. Ive been using my GD turbo without the boot for 2 years. No problemo.

    Thanks! Yes, only one stem on this bike, updated my post. Total bike weight with this configuration is 29.5. The Hans Dampf 2.4's (2.35 really) are a tad heavy, but so worth it for winter conditions here in Northern California. I also have a set of Stans Crest rims laced to Chris King hubs with tubeless Maxxis Icons for my XC configuration, which takes the bike down 2 lbs to 27.5 lbs.

    It's a medium and I'm about 180cm (5'11"). Fits me well with the 50mm stem.

    Nice setup! I'm thinking about bying the same bike with almost the same setup but I'm a little unsure what size to buy. I'm 6 feet tall and am now riding on a Medium 18" Kona Cadabra. According to Santa Cruz fitting-page a Medium is to small for me and that I should buy a Large. I like small bikes, but not too small. How tall are you and what size is your bike?

    I'm just 3/4" over six feet, and the large is a perfect fit. I never considered a medium, but did test ride the XL, which felt comfortable in a cruiser bike sort of way but did not have the same shredable feel as the large. I seem to remember hearing that when SC and other companies design a carbon bike, they typically do most of the R&D and testing using a large frame layup, and then modify the layup to product the other sizes late in the game. I could be wrong, but I think this means that often the large size ends up having the most optimized geometry.

    All that said, if you prefer a smaller frame as it sounds like you do, I would test ride both a medium and a large if you can.
