Monster Truck front tire. How much are you slacking it out with the angleset?
Hopefully the SLX brakes bleed easier than elixir's. What a PIA.
The HA according to Commencal is 68 stock. So it would be 66.5 here. As far as the bleed, I don't what it is with me and fluids but I tried it and rage quit. Spilled fluid everywhere and didn't achieve anything hahaha it was horrible. Hopefully my friend who's pretty pro at these sort of things can do something with it.
Thanks guys. It's been performing really well for me. I've put it through a bunch of AM/FR terrain recently and it's held up great. I've added a KS dropper to it and I'm also looking to stiffen up the front with a 34mm fork in the near future. In the meantime here's some footage of it at a local FR trail:
Been busy swapping parts, adding a few, and experimenting a bit. Additions include a G2 chain guide and a KS dropper post. After casing a few doubles not so gently I had to replace the rear p35 hoop. While I had the opportunity, I decided to go with a 650b p35 rim, laced to a hope hub along with a 2.25 ardent. The 29 rim in the rear really limited me as far as which tire I could use, the max being something like a 2.2 on the not so nobby side. The 650b config allows me to pretty much use anything I want while further slackening the bike and dropping the bb a bit. I also swapped the marz bomber for a fox float with the slightly larger 34mm stanchions. Had my first xc test ride a few hours ago and it felt good. Really waiting to see how it feels on the downs and feature filled side of things.

Well, I've had a blast with this frame. But it's time for me to part ways with it. An opportunity for a great deal on a Diamondback Scapegoat came up and I couldn't pass it up. Going to take some getting used to a 26 platform but I'll need the extra travel and slacker angles for the freeride stuff I'm getting into. The Meta29 was damn good AM frame and I'll miss it.
