    Yup, I have to agree with you there

    NoStyle get your hands on a working scale please so we can have a weight on that beauty. Noticeably more svelte tubing structure vs. the Rune or Prime.

    Wonder ir the rear triangle has any extra material shaved from the Rune's. Doesn't look it but the main frame, oh yeah, much lighter looking.

    Build weight of 30lbs or under with a dropper and I'd be

    Holy. Freaking. Crap.

    I was pretty bummed about the Spitfire being red while the Rune got the blue that I adore. No longer bummed.

    Amazing, never thought a weight like that was gonna be possible Almost hard to believe, especially after seeing some of the Rune weights

    Now for a few ride reports to potentially seal the deal for me

    Looks and sounds great but those seattube tacos are a concern after owning an '09 5 Spot.

    Glad you went black, so if we're on the same ride our bikes won't be twinsies once I get one too. Really bummed I missed that hardtail ride today (not sure if you were there).

    soooo, what are the headset options for running a 1.125" steer-tube fork on a v2 spitfire? from what i can tell, there's:

    - chris king: inset 2 with a devo baseplate
    - cane creek: SHIS:ZS44 on top / SHIS:ZS56/30 below
    - hope: Integral 43.95mm upper / Integral 55.9mm lower + a Hope Tapered 1.5" Reducer Crown

    am i missing any good options? am i even on the right track? i don't know what's worse, the current state of front derailleur "standards" or headset "standards"

    You forgot the fully sealed 44/56mm Banshee headsets that come with both 1.125" and 1.5" crown races so that they worth with both fork options... ask your dealer for details.

    i didn't forget about it because i didn't know it existed... until now. was almost ready to curse you for sticking us (me) with a hard-to-spec head tube only to find you've made it easy peasy lemon squeezy; beauty

    The 44/56 head tube is the way to go for all frames IMO. Zero-stack on a tapered fork is where it's at. I wish people would drop all the other options (my TR250 has the one size down lower cup so I can run tapered but not ZS ... lame. 2013's have fixed this)

    I need a group opinion to help with my future build. I am going to run the new xfusion Slant fork. I have ordered a black frame, should I run a white or a black fork?

    I vote black to match the frame

    What's the ETA on the Slant? You going 26 or 650 as apparently now there will be a different fork for each.

    I was doing a 26er I was told they would be available in about three weeks. I was also told that the 650b fork will be closer to the end of January beginning of February.
