    Ok thats a solid Scapegoat! 32lbs? Nice weight I just got my frame this week and its is SO solid. Way more so than my 2010 Mission.

    Details on the offset bushing please. What's mission tune?

    That's not too slack for all mountain? Uphills would be interesting. I run minions on my mission too but am thinking about something else in the rear that rolls better.

    Offset bushings, A must for the DB bikes as the BB height is taller than claimed.

    They lower your BB height and slacken the HA by about a half degree.

    I bought a used RP23 off of a Mission to replace the stock DHX air as I feel like the RP23 has more mid stroke support. I recently added a medium air volume spacer to give it even more support and increase the progressiveness.

    I feel like 65 is great for the kind of riding I do on it, though it may not be so great for general trail riding. The steeper the descent the better. After a couple rides you don't really notice the HA on the climbs.

    I have recently swapped out my Minion in the rear with a High Roller 2 and am pleased so far. I am really loving this bike.

    I really like the looks of the 2013, and would pull the trigger on it if it came in a bigger size. Topping out at 19" makes no sense to me. Taller guys would love to ride this bike too.

    Fluid I am 6' and the 19/Large rides fine for me, it could probably accommodate up to 6'2" pretty well. After that then XL (which they don't make for the Goat) would be your next size- maybe a Mission with a DHX Air?

    That is a great looking bike. There are times when I look at bikes angles and setup, and say to myself "I'd like to ride that." This is definitely one of those times.
