    F275 build

    I got my new Foes F275 the other day. All I have to say is this bike is sweet. Outstanding build quality, stiff, playful. Just an all around great bike! And I have to say, I am liking the 650b. I noticed I maintained speed a little better, but besides that felt like a 26er, especially after coming off a season of racing my 29er HT.

    Large F275
    Shocker Yellow over Super Chrome (yes it is green)
    Cane Creek DBair XV with Climb Switch
    XFusion Vengeance HLR
    Syntace W36 wheelset
    Schwalbe Hans Damf SS 2.25 tubeless
    Kind Shock LEV Integra 150mm dropper
    Hope M4 brakes with floating rotors (203/183)
    XTR M970 crank
    Saint Shifter and RD
    MRP G3 ISG05 guide
    Wolf Tooth 32t
    XT 11-36t cassette
    KMC chain
    WTB Silverado Saddle
    Hope Ceramic BB
    Peaty grips
    Twenty6 Predator pedals
    Deity Zink bars
    Easton Havoc 50mm stem
    Mucky Nutz bender fender

    Cool Bike, had I not purchased my Tracer 275 before the F 275 came on the market and as a demo bike for cheap I would have picked up the F 275; may still sell the Intense to do just that.

    Have always thought FOES were something special...on my wish list one day. Is your "Shocker Yellow" a powder coat or anodized finish? I can see the welds really clear...usually ano leaves the welds visible.

    By the way...great looking bike too, put some mud on that thing!

    No mud, it's even dry around here but it's already dirty. And it's a two-coat powder coat.

    Cool, haha...yeah! Do you know what the advantage of the two-coat powder coat? I have had a powder coated frame...never looked the same after the first ride and did not weather abuse very well. It was a Chumba...lesson learned and obviously not the same quality as FOES.
    Have a Turner and Nicolai now, both ano finishes...seem tough as nails.

    Stupid, but sometimes witty. Occasionally brilliant. Slow and fat though.

    Specialized sucks dong
