    looks clean!

    but why so much bike without a dropper post and those tires? unique, but from what i am ASSUMING this thing is way overbuilt for the way it may be ridden... am i wrong?

    For Urban/pavement Enduro riding? If in fact, there is such a thing...

    Well, replace the heavier Saint breaks with XTRs and put a KS Lev on it, if you want to keep a similar weight... maybe.

    well that certainly is 'unique'...

    so much so that if I saw it for sale on craigslist I'd assume it was built of stolen parts by someone that didn't know anything about bikes.
    Come to think if it, I'm kind of wondering that now.

    Uniquely nonfunctional.

    Those wheels/tire look awful hopefully you had them around your garage, if you bought them for this build you are pushing to hard to be unique

    new wheels, new tires, shorter stem, make it a simple 1x10, and you have yourself a super awesome ride.

    The amount of carbon is completely offset by the weight of the hammerschmidt. Finish it off with a pair of those sram next sl cranks and you might have the lightest FS bike ever built.

    I feel this build is just incomplete without some bull horns.
    Switzerland doesn't need a bike park, Switzerland is a bike park.

    That chain stay protector needs at least 7 more zip ties.

    Along with the chain stay protector on the non-drive side as well.

    Ok, I do feel a little bad with all the ridicule the OP got and if it makes you or your sister in law happy, great. But you basically killed, or tamed, one of the most capable and burly mountain bikes ever made. That bike is begging to be ridden on some gnarly terrain!!

    And why these days do so many people put a foot of spacers under a stem and use a low rise bar. Remove most of the spacers get a high rise bar and stem.
