    It was a compliment. Maybe he didnt word it exactly as you would have liked but he wasnt reading your resume when he said it. Accept it and move on already.

    Nice bike though.
    Thanks for the compliment!

    Here is mine after a few upgrades.

    Switched to a 1X10 set up with a 34 up front.
    E.13 XCX chainguide. This is my main gripe about this bike. Has no ISCG tabs and press fit BB. Now the 2013's have the ISCG so that was somewhat of a bummer!
    Shorter stem at 70mm. Still thinking about bumping it down to a 50.
    Going to be getting wider bars. 730-750 mm size
    And a dropper post.

    Dropper post definitely a must . Plus wider bar. Awesome machine, man.

    I got a chromag hifi stem on my all mountain rig. It helped make it a little bit more robust. Sure, it added a few grams-but the all mountain bike is all about the ideal balance between function and compromise, so it seems. The bar clamp is wider than my old stock one and it's also now a 50mm, 20mm shorter than my stock one. My XL rig is a little heavier at 33 & 1/2 pounds-not entirely freeride like some bikes; but I love it. I'm waiting for my backyard jumps to dry off, hoping to have a little fun soon. Hope everyone is enjoying the off season. Leaves more time to spout on mtbr.

    Thank you, inter! Bars are definitely the next thing to change on my list! Then the post after that.

    I'm tall so a short stem won't work for me.

    Nice Torrent, don't see enough Avanti's round here.

    As an aside, what bar/stem combo are you running? Looks like a Haven stem, but I can't tell for sure.
    I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!

    I don't see many Avanti bikes round here neither-but then again I'm one of few riding a Norco round these parts.

    Gotta ask, what's it like? Are you stoked?

    haven 70mm and ABD sniper bars... cheap but sweet shape.

    and ehigh, super stoked with it... came froma foes FXR and it blows it out of the water in terms of suspension performance, not quite as stiff tho.

    Good to see someone on an all coil setup. How much does your rig weigh?

    A lot of awesome bikes here. I am trying to turn my bike the most AM the frame, and my wallet, can handle. Here there aren't any trails that would require such set up, but I am discovering jeep roads and ATV trails that can be enjoyable with an AM set up.

    Its a bender fender copy I made myself. It's more or less to the exact same dimensions as theirs.
