    You said the magic word = almost. My nomad, 2 spitty's and a supper shuttle have cracked from the Dells? Ya the spitty was fun, but it was getting to much abuse. The Prime and the Rune should be beefy enough to handle the Dells for awhile? You know you want 1 .

    Quit riding like a caveman! I have only killed one frame out there so far and it was a very lightweight XC frame.

    I did not know about the Spitfire deaths (or the gonad for that matter).

    Last time I pay for a bike 6 months early. They'll be obsolete by the time mine gets here. One of you guys take an extra ride, for me, please.

    Hey, the Butcher29's are available. Get em' while they're hot. Got one on my Paradox front and 2 extras on my bench. Awesome tire for AZ conditions.

    Finally a 29" DHF!
    I'm sure I'll want a set, a front at minimum, but best to worry about the whole need a frame and fork thing first : )

    Hey JNC, what size is that? Ask as I see you have a setback post, find it strange that someone needs a setback post for a Prime - looks like needs as saddle is past 1/2 back on the rails. I've always needed setback posts on all bikes prior to the Prime, but not on the Prime, only reason I'm running one on it is for the post length - 350mm they send is just too short for me. Know you said it's a mockup,, just curious how "mock" ?

    Yup, the 168mm Q factor option is required for all Banshee frames.

    Yup...medium. I am trying to squeeze onto a medium for maximum schralp-ability
    Surprisingly, there is only 1/4" difference in cockpit length from my HT 29er (Stickel) with 24" ETT. I am going to try both the offset & 0 offset Thomson posts...since I would like to go with a dropper post at some point, and there are none of those with offset I am interested in.

    "Mock'd up", as in, no headset installed yet (arrived today )...but I wanted to measure up a few data points. From what I can gather, this might be my best fitting FS 29er yet! Tomorrow will reveal all! I will be starting off with the lowest/slackest setting...and go from there!

    Looks nice, jnc. Get one of the new Butcher29's, you'll like it better than that Purg on the front, guaranteed.

    I'm not seeing any chain guide, jnc, but I won't argue that I could be blind. I'll be interested in hearing any chain drop issues during the flogging. I haven't decided on any chain guide yet, I plan to ride a bit and see if hopefully I can get away with just a stinger.

    I'll have to check out the B29...been too busy!

    I run a short cage rear der./ short-ish chain & never drop chains.

    I am toying with the idea of stealing the Hammerschmidt from the Stickel! Imagine that with the new Sram XX1 rear

    Once I swap my big ring for a bash guard, pretty much mandatory for where I ride, I always swap to a medium cage. Never tried a short with 2 chain rings. Speaking of Hammerschmidts, I had half a crazy thought of building a Hammerschmidt dinglespeed.

When you get it is it going to be a completely new build so you have both to ride back to back or will you be stripping the Pre for parts?
    Maybe wait for the carbon version.

    I ran Eskar fronts until you couldn't get them anymore, switched to 2.4 Purgatory, way better. I'm now riding the B29 front, way better again, the 2 spares laying on my bench weigh in at 811g and 833g. Not much heavier than a Purg, softer rubber, a touch thicker sidewall, feels just as good as the 26" version, maybe even a touch better because of the bigger diameter.
