    Thanks rushtrack

    I just talked with one of the engineers at BMC, and his advice was to go 150mm "since they have the same height..."

    But then Specialized, on the Enduro29, replaced a 150mm F34 by a 160mm Pike...

    The TF-01 sure is pricey -either frame only or full build option. So, has anyone heard from dealers as to whether or not one can buy the TF-02 or TF-03 frames? The web site only shows a TF-01 frame option. The TF-02 is carbon/alloy. I assume that the front triangle is the carbon part. Can anyone confirm? Thanks,

    yep, the front triangle is in carbon, rear aluminium

    i've not heard of frame only TF2 and 3.
    But then the tf2 trailcrew slx is not too expensive.

    The geometry of the TF01 says that the fork is 562mm and Pike DP 150 is 563mm therefore I think it is perfect fit.

    Is that yours? What size is it? Seems like a M...

    Can you tell me something about the feel of the geometry? When I look at the numbers the headset seems te be so short. Doesnt it feel like your weight is to much to the front?

    More pictures? Changed crank?

    Could this be the perfect trail/am 29'er combination?

    - Short chain stay
    - Stout fork
    - Anti squat sus
    - Long travel

    Seems to be getting very positive reviews, will be interesting to see how it fares within the Enduro Compare-O, but OMG that price!

    I was riding this bike recently and I love it. I was searching for reviews and found many positive but one quite negative at bikemag. Anyway, I am waiting for TF01 size L.

    What they say does not match what I have felt. I am quite tall 6`5 and also tested Enduro 29 XL and what they say matches what I have felt with this bike.

    BMC Trailfox TF01 29
    .

    I'm kinda surprised to read bikemag's review, stating the TF01's rear end is too active on climbs, and requires lots of compression damping (apparently to minimize pedal bob): that feedback is typical for bikes without much anti-squat (ie Spec Enduro 29), but usually not what most riders report for bikes with anti-squat designs (ie DW link, Maestro, VPP, CVA, etc).

    Also not consistent with reviews from sicklines, or mtbr's own "Enduro compare-o".

    Makes me wonder if bikemag's TF01 test whip wasnt set up correctly, or if their reviewer is more accustomed to riding hardtails or short-travel XC race bikes with rear ends optimized for hyper efficient pedaling...

    Regardless, I agree w/ NullAndVoid--Trail Fox 29 has everything I want in a versatile bike that'll allow me to pedal up and down the kind of trails I like to ride (~17" chainstays, antisquat rear suspension, long travel, slack head angle).

    Everything except it's stratospheric price tag ;^)

    regarding this review :
    -they tested a size L, which have the same reach has an XL spe enduro. May be it was a bit big for them..
    -the shock damping setup has been changed in october with more hydraulic resistance (and a more linear spring curve too). I don't know what version this testers had, but i know of another who didn't like the stock setup at launch too
    -front tire doesn't have much grip, especially with a tube inside

    I guess I'm on the BMC bandwagon now. Just picked up a TF01 that I'll be building up with a Pike and XX1. It's an amazing frame.

    On my park hanging scale, as pictured it weighed 5 pounds 14 ounces. It's a small.

    I'm waiting on the fork to arrive, but last night I installed the bottom bracket and did the internal routing of the brake line and cable housing. The online manual said there was supposed to be an internal foam tube for the housing to go through to reduce rattling, but I didn't get one. I may look into an aftermarket solution. Since the move to clutch style derailleurs and the death of chain slap I've gotten used to a nice quite bike. I don't want a bunch of banging around inside the frame.

    Build progress

    The build is coming along, but not fast enough. I'll get the drivetrain/wheels this weekend and I should be riding next week. I can't wait to get this thing on the trails!

    I went with the 780mm chromag bza 35mm bar and 50mm stem. It looks beefy.

    Rideable but not complete

    I've finally got enough parts on the bike to ride it but the build is not complete. I've got some XC level parts on it that will be replaced with more durable AM parts. Specifically, a dropper post, wider/stiffer wheels and beefier tires. As it sits though (without the saddlebag but with pedals), according to my park hanging scale the weight is 25.5 lbs which is pretty impressive.

    First ride will be today after work!
