    Hey out of curiosity, how tall are you? I picked up my Fathom 2 and I had to buy a medium because a L fitted like a Specialized XL. I am 5'11" tall.

    Also, watch for the bottom bracket creaking! Mine started creaking on day 1 out on the trail. I opted to buy a full Shimano XT groupset with a Shimano BB to replace all the stock stuff on my Fathom 29er

    The kit is on sale for $314 on Chain Reaction Cycles. The BB is on sale for $16 on Jenson.

    Looking good! What bottle holders are those? I made the mistake of buying crappy ones from Amazon and my bottles kept flying off my bike when I did crazy stuff.
