    That's a beautiful bike...that was my #1 pick, but it was a lil outside my budget...so i ended up on a voltage fr, which I dont have any regrets about, but damn that faith is nice.

    BTW, Oxygen, what's the weight of your Faith? Are these 1ply Schwalbies?

    My new sled...

    SC Driver 8 LRG
    Fox RC4 Shock
    Fox Van FIT RC2 180mm Fork
    King Inset Headset
    King Hubs w/ Mavic 823's
    Conti Mountain King's, 2.4" tubeless
    Saint cranks w/ King bb
    Saint rear derailler/shifter
    Formula 'The One' brakes
    Easton Havoc stem and bars
    Thomson Elite post chopped 5"
    Fizik Gobi saddle (will soon make way for an SDG Aliso)
    Ringle' ZuZu pedals
    Guessing the bike weighs 36-38 lbs, but feels much lighter than that. The suspension (fox and VPP) is amazing; it's like riding an easyboy down the mountain (but like carrying one on your back when trying to get up the mountain). The pain going up makes riding down that much better.

    That is strange...
    You've got lighter tires, rims, brakes, cranks... and yet, you Faith is 0,5kg heavier than my Glory...

    JDub713, it's the first Driver8 set I really like
    Is this Fox 36 with strait 1-1/8 steerer or tapered?

    It's tapered. After I built it I kind of wished I used a devolution headset and a straight 1 1/8" steerer so I could switch to a dual crown easier, but eff it, what's done is done. The Van fork has been great thus far; no complaints. And a lot of people have made negative comments about the steeper HT angle the Driver8 has but I think it's perfect. Then again, I don't do full on 'balls to the wall' DH either. The bike truly is a swiss army knife of sorts.

    How is the Glory for FR? I'm thinking of building one up with a single crown for a do-all gravity bike. Love the concept of the Faith but I can't see buying one and having do dump another $200 into an angleset (which have been problematic) because of the ridiculously steep HTA!

    Have FUN!

    My Faith is in Medium size, your is S. I have a double chainring with bash, protections (rubber and carbon) on frame and then my Booobar, Thomson, headset and SDG saddle are heavier than yours

    oh, I love it
    My first Glory (DH) 2006 had 230mm. Another, 2008, FR version had originally 200mm rear wheel travel. But, then, I put FOX DHX Air on it, which, after year of riding, appeared to have less travel than I though So, I've been riding Glory (FR) with ca. 180mm travel, for about a year. Didn't even notice it
    I've decided to get 2010 Glory frame and build nearly dream bike, instead of complete Faith. HA was one of reasons.

    Hmm... S vs M is like 70g, I checked it. But the rest of components probably make the difference.

    I am on the same boat as you are.
    I plan to switch forks and I am very tempted by new FSA Option angle head set and Float 36 180 1-1/8" instead of tapered... I am waiting for some info from my buddy who's a big fellow and ride hard. He's about to switch his 36 180 tapered for 1-1/8".

    Bullcrew, have you got F36 180 with strait steerer on both bikes? (same fork?) If not, did you feel any difference of the stiffness?
