    I'm 165 lbs and thought the 300 was too soft. I bottom out twice even with 200+ psi in the rear shock. I don't want to crank up the HSC (already at 6 clicks) and loose performance out of the shock so I will try a 350 spring Sunday when I get back from vacation. I will post some pics posted when I get back home to ReNo. Your bike looks good man, you are going to love it.

    Correct set up of mini G2 = long screws and 3mm spacing for each bolt (three silver washers as provided by MRP)

    So does anyone have an answer to the correct bottom bracket question. What is the model number? I have a frame on order and am having trouble finding which is the correct one.

    You want a BB92 press-fit. The easiest one to find right now (online) is Shimano's HT2 BB86/BB92. It's a wonderful piece o' cr4p made of plastic. Oh, and it's unserviceable. Race Face has a much nicer (serviceable) BB92, but good luck finding it as they are still in the process of ramping up production.

    Bottom line: the press fit BB is a superior, stiffer design allowing for a wider BB shell but it seems as though the industry hasn't caught up yet so I am assuming we will see some nicer BB92's later this year or next.
