    I'm right at 175lb. Stans site says the wheels are for rider
    weight up to 190. Ring has me bummed, might try to
    locate some rings and see if I can figure a way to make
    it work.

    Just got my X2 29er yesterday and I also did not have it on there. LBS were also surprised it didn't come with one.

    Got my sag indicator installed. Measured fork tube and went to
    the local ACE and they had a good selection of O rings. Got
    a couple different sizes that were close and the 1 1/4 id was
    perfect. I wrapped the tube with tape to keep glue off, cut the
    O ring, put on tube over tape and super glued it back together.
    There is hardly any stretch on the ring so I think it will work.
    Going on first trail ride tomorrow.

    If you do decided to go tubeless, I promise you will not regret it. At least I didn't.

    Got my first trail ride in today on my new X2. My O ring I put
    on the fork is working. The trail I rode was easy but very
    sandy in spots. Very impressed how the tires and bike
    went through that stuff. Trying a different trail tomorrow.

    As already mentioned, Crests are light XC race rims, and should really only be used purely for racing..
    You should go for the Arch Ex for a stiffer more trail orientated wheel...

    Or just buy an ENVE wheelset!

    That is what everyone tells me. I have finally started reading up on how to do it myself. I will report back on how it goes.

    The pics look sweet! I just got back from a killer ride too. I need to go take some pics after I clean her up a bit.

    What flat pedals are you rocking?

    Got the first ride in on my X1 today and came away very impressed. Coming off a Titus Motolite, the new steed seems just as playful, but much more stable and rolls over roots and trail junk with ease. Two thumbs up from this guy, great bike.

    Should there be some kind of plug or cap at the center of the
    right side crank. Just noticed it after yesterdays ride. Don't
    know if it was like that new. Anyone with an X2, is yours
    the same?

    Mine came the exact same way brand new out of the box. I was actually thinking about it this weekend as I was washing the bike...gotta be careful to keep water out of there just in case.

    Thought they looked familiar...I rock the same ones, only in black. Love them. Still looking for some new shoes though to replace my worn out 5 tens

    Can't figure why it would be open like that.

    It must be the common thing to do nowadays as my buddy's bike with a 2012 Shimano 3x10 crankset is open like that as well.

    No, there shouldn't be a plug. Your crank set is just fine.

    Well if you haven't bought one yet I don't think you would be disappointed. I have 3 rides on my x1 granted I was coming off a old full suspension 26 I have rode many of my buddies fs 29ers this by far feels like the most comfortable confidence inspiring bike I've been on. Only complaints so far would be the avid brakes they are make a lot of noise and are not as smooth as I would like I don't know if its the pad material or what but can't believe they put a product out like this do they not do any testing or what I've had cheaper hydr disc that felt better. The other thing is the dropper post has a little play in it fully extended a little in twisting and a little front to back not enough to notice whole riding just hope it dont get worse. On a more positive note once you get over that the bike handles and corners great suspension is nice and plush and can still handle the big hits. There seems to be little to no flex at all out of the rear end or the wheels. I would like to maybe upgrade to a 34 fork instead of the 29 and some better brakes in the future but for now I am enjoying the bike stock. overall funest fastest all around bike out there in my opinion
