    Yeah, I thought it's Float = white and Talas = black. Maybe that's only for the 2012s.

    Is that a headset and crown race already installed? Looking forward to your build pictures!

    Hmm, a non-kashima DHX Air? Might be a good thing though, those tend to blow through their mid-stroke pretty easily as it is, the kashima might make that worse.

    I wonder if it is like when I got my Spitfire frame, it was listed as coming with a Revelation Dual Air and I got a U-Turn. Maybe the frames will have a TALAS 34 (is there a crossed fingers emoticon soemwhere?).

    Based on the hardtail in the background, I'm guessing it's an XL

    its a M

    Hey guys
    The black fox float was a surprise as like as the non kashima dhx5.
    it also built like a dh rig and weigh accordingly (9lb on a home scale).
    the headset was installed first thing at my LBS just after I got the frame.it a superstar headset.
    hhmmm, the hardtail on the back is a 18" ragley bagger 288 which I converted it to a 69er ss.

    Actually sounds about right on the weight, considering a .4lb headset and 1lb shock are included- that puts the bare frame right around the target weight of 7.5lbs.
    Not light but should be a sweet ride. Thanks for the pics and keep us posted!

    iscg what ?

    no blackspire for you
    installed a bb mount 2 chain guide by blackspire. still dont have the front der so have no insights of that issue.
    16 kg complete (no frontder and shifter) with saint brakes 203 f+r,
    shimano hone rear hub+rear der = a lot of weight but no shuttered der and der hanger
    blunt rims. slx crank and front hub. xt cassete , shifter and pedals.
    should have been white fork. will change the stem nd bar for black.

    Yeah, looks great!
    I wonder if some dremel work would resolve the chainguide issue?
    I have an MRP G2 waiting, and I'm a little skeptical if will fit, we'll see.

    Ditto on the black fork totally throwing of my color coordination

    Kinda glad that the forks are black, pretty tired of white forks myself.

    Put a Talas on my Paradox, simply because it was black, I never use the 100mm setting. Sure wish you prototype types would stop goofing around and get these frames thrashed out so the rest of us can get one.

    That's one sick looking bike!

    Nice mod on the Bagger too. I wonder if my PigX will take a 29er fork as well. Hmmm....
    Hey man, wanna go for a klunk?

    He stated it is a medium.

    Nice looking bike! Built pretty beefy...when they finally become publicly available, looks like I'll be able to build it fairly light without having to use any crazy light parts (thinking around 30-31 lbs).

    Thanks for sharing Guyg! A couple more questions for you: 1) I presume you aren't located in the US? I'm able to be happy for you and not insanely jealous under the presumption that you live in a location either closer to the mfg site and/or a country with less restrictive import duty red tape? 2) What size are those tires? They look a tight fit...do you think mud might pack up in the BB area or near those struts?
