    Nice build, boylagz!
    Is it Fox Float or coil?
    What's the weight?

    Its a Van, so coil. Tbh I havent weighed her in a long time. My best guess would be about 36.5-37 lbs. Heavy wheels and dh tires and tubes. Could easily get it to 34 lbs with some FR-cased Schwalbe tires but not doing that any time soon :D Thanks man.

    Seatpost.
    How do you like the seatpost with I-beam. I'm thinking of the same thing but the fixed heights of the GD are a concern to me. I need 75mm down and then at least 100mm total would be nice and the head to be a little offset which it looks like I could get there with the adjustment of the I-beam seat.

    Its better then good its great!

    I like the wider range of adjustment on it... i have a 40mm stem so i push the seat far back.. plus its sexier

    Here is my Single Crown 03 DHR I machined to emulate an 04 or so w/ the holes and fly cut the thick frame plates, changed to a thru bolt pivot w tube inserted between swingarm tabs, and turned down and drilled out pivot caps. Then I painted it w candy flames and brought it back to life w a Vivid air to go with the Totem, then made a direct mount FD work with it all. It flys! I want a little slacker and may do an angleset or drill the swingarm and remove the custom lower cup, to keep the seattube constant or steeper, as climbing I'm pretty far back. I had a custom cup machined to take the flush cup bearing and crown race, the external cup original was super heavy haha. Tires are temporary but do ok, may put I9 wheels w Flow EX's upgraded over my Flows but not sure that'll be strong enough, but def. lighter. Its at about 36-37lbs now I guess. Anyone know what tune a DHR needs on the Vivid air? It's a MM now and is great but maybe it could help ride height climbing.

    The tune you need depends on your leverage ratio. Leverage ratio = travel/stroke. Then look it up on the Rockshox website, easy as pie.

    Geo doesnt look as slack. Hows the climb. Im planning to get a remedy or specialized enduro since I do more climbs lately. Waiting for the 2014 models.

    Yeah it came on the bike along with the Manitou Travis Single up front...
    I may be switching to Fox though...

    I'm running a Swinger on an older Giant Faith and its been good to me though... So I'm conflicted.

    The price was right on the Trek so I can feel comfortable putting some money into the suspension.

    Do you like the swinger because i just ordered one for my yakuza and i hope i didn't waste my money. Im upgrading from a 2007 fox vanilla r with no adjustability besides the rebound.

    It's much more adjustable...
    I like mine on the Faith and haven't had any problems with it.

    #2: Post your Single Crown DH/FR beauties!
    A bit lighter duty than a lot of the burly rigs on here but it's my do it all bike... Fox 36 RC2 160, Reverb dropper, 50mm stem, MRP chain guide, 180mm front &amp; rear rotors, Saint flat pedals, 2.5 Minion DHF front, High Roller 2.35 rear... All helped transform the bike into a bit more confidence inspiring than my initial build... Sitting at 31.5 lbs now. The fork and front tire also slackened it out to about 66 deg.

    The AM wheels and tires, plus air shock explain the light wieght, but I would still think you would be a pound or two heavier with the frame. Keep us updated on how the wheels hold up in the gnarly stuff.

    I know these are not DH wheels and tires, but at least tires, have been working for me well, so far.
    Rims are at least as tough as regular Flow, which some riders been happy with.
    Shock - seems to be just 60g heavier than Fox RC4+Ti spring, so, I will probably get back to coil.
    I don't shread, I don't huck, so I hope wheels with hold on well.

    I've used the i23s on my last two builds and am very impressed. I use a set on my 39lb beast for non-lift (pedaling) days. No problems.

    Good to hear that :)
    I've invested money in CX-Ray spokes, so it should help keep wheels straight.
