    Are the fern green Balance links going to look about the same as the ano green links on the new jedi?

    Yes it would. And I agree with you on liking a slightly steeper seat tube angle, but I wonder if your Mach 5.7's 71-deg seat tube angle is the effective angle or the actual angle.

    It's whatever they put on their geo chart. They don't put both. I'm willing to bet effective though, because I feel pretty far back from the pedals. Noticeably so in comparison to steeper STA bikes.

    formula1fan, glad you had the chance to see the Balance in person. We are SO excited about this bike and can't wait till June when we start shipping these to the public!!!

    *Please note - The flat connecting tube above the BB will be replaced with the correct round tube for production.

    Unfortunately not. Lance was away from the tent when I stopped by. I should have gone back again later.

    I could tell Lance had fun with it, she seem to be lovingly used.

    SO, what your impression of the sizing on the medium? Did it feel "true-to-size", roomy, compact, etc.? How tall are you?

    We just received an email last night from our factory, informing us of a production delay due to cnc arriving later than scheduled. This delay is going to push back our Balance ship date until the end of July.

    We apologize for the inconvenience and, as always, we will keep everyone updated.

    Oh man, that blk/blk is sick! Especially built up with the pike and all black everything else; super stealth. But I'm definitely going raw. The question is, black links or green…
    I'm planning on the build being sprinkled with Deity green ano goodness and a one-up out back. At least I think I've decided on large frame versus XL.
    Just not stoke on waiting till the end of July :-/

    first off, this frame is beautiful and i really hope to get the chance to demo one somewhere around the socal area

    second, i hope im not the only one but as a dedicated single gear rider since 2005, the first thing i would dream about doing to this frame is very carefully removing the integrated FD mount

    It's damn nice frame indeed. I've had an uncontrollable credit card finger twitch since the black/black pic's were released.

    I wouldn't mind betting that in a year or so there will be no FD option for future Balances, which is completely fine by me, I've been FD free since '08.

    If it means you can shorten up the chainstays further, get rid of front D. If it has no effect/compromise on design, then I am a whatever type of guy.

    i dont mind it so much on this frame because its sort of tucked by the rear triangle but on something like the trek slash for example - its just right in your face in the open

    I don't think that I would want much shorter chainstays that 16.7". I think that length should prove to be a good balance between stability at speed and nimbleness.

    I just can't want to get my hands on my silver/black Balance. It will really offset my matte black Jedi and DJ .

    Also, I noticed in that article that they are calling it the 2015 Balance. Is that due to the delayed release date?

    Depends on what you are wanting to do. I can't imagine running something better than the DB Air CS on the Balance if you want to get the most out of the bike.

    A correctly tuned coil shock will always out perform any air shock while climbing and undoubtedly while descending, no matter the bells, whistles and gimmicks that come with air shocks these days. For the type of riding the Balance is capable of I'd only run a coil. If I had no choice, CCDBA for sure or BOS, Xfusion. If the Balances platform is anything like the One's there is no need for a air shock.

    Just my opinion, I'm not trying to create a coil v's air debate in this thread.

    I agree with decending and the climbing comment is debatable, but I won't get into that. I just don't think a coil shock is worth the weight penalty on a do everything bike. I want my Balance to be sub-30 pounds without breaking the bank.

    Can the bike be built to sub 30# without breaking the bank???

    My build sheet estimates are seeing 31# with dropper/carbon rims/real tires(800g)

    It could be that the leverage ratio of the suspension was designed with an air shock in mind. I have DBAirs on both my Mojo HD and Knolly Chilcotin, it's a great shock.

    Right now in my build sheet I'm just assuming a frame weight w/o shock of 7.5lb (based off this post), Manitou Mattoc Pro, XT Drivetrain w/ X0 cranks and direct mount chainring setup 1x10, Stan's ZTR Arch EX wheelset, Maxxis Ardent EXO tires setup tubeless, KS LEV dropper post, etc etc and it is estimating 29.3lb. Fingers crossed the frame stays close to the 7.5lb estimate.

    Whenever I build it up, I'll include a full build spec list and finished weight.
