    Got my frame ordered! CCDB Air (and a Foxctd for local XC stuff) , DT Swiss M1700 650B wheelset, Fox 34 Float 650b dropped to 150, and XTR brakes all standing by! Waiting to decide if I want to go with the XTR drivetrain I have or if I wanna sell it and go XX1.

    Sorry, thought I read bb height.

    The drop (difference in bb to ground and rear axle to ground) is measured at ~14mm in slack setting.

    Does anyone know what company makes an 56mm ID external headset cup?

    I'm gonna run a 150mm RS Revelation and wanted to add some stack height to the lower cups, rather than the zero stack, to keep the BB height proper. So, far all I've seen for the 56mm option is zero stack height. Anyone know?

    Keith you mentioned Banshee was making some headsets. Are the lower cups zero stack only or is there some stack height options?

    I've not seen any 56mm external head set cups. The reason for the big 56 in the first place is to get away from the external cup.

    I'm willing to bet that Works Components might be able to make what your looking for. They make sweet angle sets and can do custom stuff so drop em an e-mail.

    Does the frame come with a headset? I thought I read that it did.

    Qbert mentioned in the Prime build forum that Cane Creek does an external 56 lower cup for their angleset HS. It is a pricey solution, but it is a solution....

    BB drop (If using same rim and tire front and rear):

    -8mm in high position.
    -2mm in neutral position.
    4mm in low position.

    Remember that tire choice will affect BB height almost as much as fork choice.

    What sizes are people ordering? I'm 5'7 and have a medium on order but am second guessing myself a little as I suspect I'm in between sizes.

    I currently have a small '11 Trance with a 70mm stem and measured reach of 395mm = 465mm total. I find it to be a bit short (but this could be a ride feel thing as it has a short wheelbase and steep head angle)

    The medium Spitfire is 428mm reach and I would like to run a 50mm stem = 478mm in total, so a touch longer than the Trance which should be good in theory.

    My V1 Rune was a medium with a 70mm stem and felt great, but with 379mm reach the total = 449mm, so quite a bit shorter than the small Trance and waaaay shorter than the V2 Spitty.

    I guess I am wondering if I should change my order to a small given that the Spitfires tend to run a bit longer than equivalent trail bikes (Blur TRC, SB66, 5 Spot)

    Thoughts anyone? Small or Medium?

Each case takes a fair amount of time since there have been many questions about sizing, drop out options, shocks, people changing colors and sizes at the last minute, etc. Please be patient. You will get taken care of.
    I'm one of those patient people, but it would be nice to get at least a confirmation email that an upgrade request was received. I submitted mine on Dec 17th and have gotten nothing. Makes me wonder if it was really received, regardless of the website stating that the request was submitted successfully...

    Is the V2 spitfire bottom bracket press-fit or is it external outboard bearings like the V1?

    External outboard bearing... no creaky hard to change press fit bearings in these bikes.

    Glad to see this standard hasn't changed in the frames.

    Looks like a Manitou, maybe the Radium Pro. Manitou's air shocks are pretty nice, loved both of the ISX-6's Ive owned.

    What are my fork options? Was looking to get the X-Fusion Slant RL2 DLA 27.5, and run it @ 160mm, but got word that it won't be avail till mid year. There's also the 2013 Fox 34 FLOAT 160 CTD, but I would need to choke on the $1,000 price tag. I think I want to keep it @ 160mm. Bilttoride, what are you guys using?

    Are you running 27.5? I've heard that the X-Fusion Velvet's are 27.5 compatible and the price is good.

    ed: I meant the Vengeance, not the Velvet - brainfart...

    I'm running an X-fusion vengeance personally, Jon has a fox 34 27.5, and Dennis runs a 26" fox 34 as seen in the promo vid. It just depends what your priorities are, and how much you want to pay.

    While I've been told the vengeance works with 27.5, I don't think it would work very well in the thick mus we have here. I personally run my spitfire in 26".
