    Different forks the old sx was a van 1 1/8 and yes there was some flex. Didn't bother me but it flexed.
    The new sx has a talas tapered and yeah its more stout for sure. I was going to go with a 1 1/8th and do an angleset but after going tapered ill leave it. Definentley stiffer.

    Nice!

    Any difference in handling between the old frame shape vs. new one?

    Thx for the info.
    I still can't decide whether take F36 with strait steerer and put angleset on my Glory or tapered steerer and live with 65* HA

    Yeah the new one handles hits alot better and is definently more plush. Better small bump and doesn't kick forward when in slams into something.
    More than balanced and. Entered li,e the old one this is exactly what I wanted the old one to ride like, the old one pedalled a little better but not a ton. Fair trade to lose a smkdge on pedaling and make it more dh worthy and capable on chatter especially before a drop or jump.

    Very impressed no wonder they aced the big hit in 2012 and its all about the sx trail.

    Depending on our weight the flex will be more or less a slacker ha will increase this a bit as well.
    That being said the slacker ha is definently a positive for steeps but I did some trail cutting on stuff that was steeper than mt. Baldy and rockier too with the old sx at 65.5 and the chutes are absurd steep with kittyliter gravel with tons of pine needles.
    Handled it like a champ, part f the reason I opted for tapered is 65 isn't a bad thing at all and if I need slack then I'll break out the Sunday its around 63.5

    Take into consideration that he is very light and tends to ride light on the bike so flex would probably be minimal while a small glory is really short (shorter than a small v10 for sure) so some extra wheelbase would help it a lot.

    Good stuff!! Running the same specs on my one and love it.

    When I first got the bike, it was certainly more that what I expected but always wondered if the old ones were the same as the new ones as you can hardly find a second hand one selling here in OZ!!!

    The bike rips, even hitting DH tracks on it and faster that my big DH sled!!! Would be nice to have the 180mm at the back as the new models but can't really justify to the wife another purchase and in all honesty, love the bike the way it is.

    We pedal a bit and variety of rides so the ability to lower it is helpfull yet be a long travel single crown.

    Feels like a float but adjustable,and I can lower PS I for a plusher ride or up it for more free ride, slam ot for a climb.

    Very diversified fork, if it was exclusively down I'd go van but being its a variety of terrain talas all the way.

    Yeah got a fair bit so far from ripping to some drops doubles and single track.
    - better small bump by alot
    - doesn't ramp in initial like the old one
    - handles chop better and I like the cornering pocket better. It doesn't chatter or loose line in doll heads like old ones

    The other hand
    - older one pedalled a bit better
    - cornered a smidge better (tighter)
    - jumping is a wash they both do that well

    It is more dh friendly and likes aggressive lines still corners well, had a bit of an issue maualling the new one and wheelies were a bit off. Thought the rear end was crooked lol. Went out the next day and just threw it up, haven't looked back.

    Love the new design.

    Bullcrew,
    Very nice luxury to have the ability to swap frames so quickly.
    A slight bit of envy coming from me.

    Here's mine minus some other parts changes/upgrades as this build is mostly from my 08 minus fork and cranks. Going to change out the lines/cables for lime green, a gold chain , gold spank bars and a khs remote sestpost and of course cut the steer tube once I figure out if I can live with the totem. Really want a 180 talas as I am hoping to use it like my 08 as an all around ride

    I love the new SXT, it was down to that and my Uzzi when I was building mine up and that was the previous model SXT. If this generation was out, things may have been different.

    I think its 10 lbs or so. I have it build pretty BLING and its around 35+ now so not bad but iw was shooting for 33-34. Either way I pedals well and will take a SOLID beating.
    Plus it doesn't hurt to slap a dual crown and go race it.
