    Yes it is a shaved 36. I got it used and beat up prior to the shave. Now I wish I had used a new fork.

    Alex Morgan (BCD racing) and Mikesee both use them and both ride harder than me so I figured it was safe. There are folks outweighing me by 50 lbs riding them for years with no issues.

    i wish fox would just make a 36mm fork for 29" with a 20mm axle and forget the retarded 15mm qr. just another standard offering nothing over the existing 20mm platform that no one asked for.

    good to hear the modded fox works well. i'd wonder about muddy locals though and its clearance there

    This bike is the epitome of "in the bike" feel to me. Very pleased.

    More pics to come.
    BTW, what pedals are those? DMR Vaults?

    Good eye! Yes they are vaults. Although I have since put an x9 crank and 28t bling ring on with orange Canfield crampon ulti's.

    The Vaults are great. Probably the biggest platform I have found. They have held up extremely well and are reasonably light.

    The clearance on mine is better than a Reba. The fork is limited to 130mm travel.

    It would be so easy for Fox to build a 36 29"ER fork it is ridiculous. I like their version of 20mm TA better than the Maxle.

    What's a good offer? That fork is currently selling brand new on CRC for $500.

    Jeez, just when I'm getting my DBair dialed, Cane Creek says that the Prime requires their new DBair XV.

    mh, wondering if the new DB Airs that arrive end of feb are the ones with XV or the "old" db airs ... if the old ones it would be nice if there would be a CHEAP upgrade available for those who bought the frameset with the old

    Is it worth upgrading to the DBAir over the Fox?
    I mostly ride trail, with the occasional DH run..

    (ps: I'm a 200lbs rider, if that makes a difference..)

    I think I saw where you will be able to purchase the XV can for $40. The DBair comes apart very easily and would probably take about 10 mins to swap it out. I plan on getting the XV can once its available as I have noticed that I am not getting full travel as it is with the standard can. I'm just glad the the shock is this tuneable.

    I just found out this bike existed. I think I just found my next bike! Please forgive my ramblingsÖ

    My current bike is a GT Sensor 9r. I love the bike, but Iím always looking for something better. The stock HTA on my Sensor is 69.5. Iíve modified it so that the HTA is 67.1, and it is just starting to ride the way Iíve always wanted a bike to ride. Iíve found that the slack HTA doesnít bother me one bit on switchbacks or climbs, and I love it everywhere else. On the downside, the seat tube is now slacker than Iíd like, and the BB is higher than Iíd like. What I really need is a 29er Frame that was designed with a slack HTA from the beginning.
    I think with the Prime I can easily get the HTA and BB where Iíd like them. The adjustable dropouts are a great feature!

    The Sensor has a 24.8Ē ETT. Iím running a .75 setback seat post, and the seat is jammed all the way back. I works pretty well that way, although I still would like to be slightly more stretched out. The 25.4 ETT on the Prime ought to be long enough for me. I still need to crunch numbers on the reach to know for sure.
    I really liked the fit and handling of the Stumpjumper FSR, but the rear suspension was unacceptable to me. It sank down in the travel when I pedaled it. I loved the Sultan, but the TT on the XL is too short, and the standover on the XXL is too high. Not to mention it has a long straight head tube which limits the HTA change via an angleset.

    All the boxes are checked for me on the Prime. Sounds like the suspension is comparable to DW link, and thatís good enough for me. Iím 225, so stiff is good. The top tube is long enough, and the low standover is a bonus. I just need to figure out when Iím going to be ready to cough up 2k for a new frame!
    Iím thinking an X-fusion Trace RL2 140 (when itís finally released) along with an X7 build would get it done for me.

    This new vid just pushed me a lot closer to a Prime...

    So far only 1 commenter on PB has mentioned it's a 29er. One thought it was a Rune, despite the name of the video. Such a good looking and proportional bike. And with a ride to match.
