    That looks like a solid build. How is the double chainring working out up front? I have 2010 with a full chain guard up front. Let me tell you, climbing with a single 38tooth ring is a lung buster.

    If you're looking to save a little $$ on the fork, you might check out the X-Fusion Vengeance. I've been extremely happy with mine. They're light, super stiff, and extremely plush. It feels like a great fit for the frame.

    Anyway, enjoy. Those frames are just way too much fun....

    Thanks.
    The double ring work awesome...You don't see that many with a double. Did a lot of searching and found only 1 buil with it. Everyone else used the single chainguide that came with the frame. I had a 22-32 on it but have changed to a 26-36 for a little more gearing. I picked up a 2011 Marz 66 rc3 ti for it from HucknRoll when they blew them out for way less than dealer cost.
    I have light tires on it so it so far don't seem that bad on climbs. I am a sit and spin person anyways so don't care how long it takes to climb.
    This is not my everyday bike anyway, have a Chumba vf2 thats built up for general trail riding if there will be too much climbing or riding with a faster pace group.

    What size is the steerer tube on the marz 66 forks? I have the '09 model but didn't think the 1.5" steerer would fit this frame....???

    The 66 could be had with a 1 1/8" steerer tube. That's what he's using here.

    In terms of weight, he's probably somewhere around the high 30s? Mine is about 35 with lighter fork and probably lighter wheels/tires.
