    I bought this bike in a medium. I think I messed up as I am 5'11". It seems I should I have gotten the L.

    What can I do to better this situation? Is a new seat post the answer, one which sets me farther from the handlebars? What should I look for?

    Also, the spokes on the DT Swiss X470 kept breaking, so they replaced it with the X1600 wheelset. It's a well rated set from what I've read. Did they upgrade or downgrade me?

    Would a longer handlebar stem help? If so, should I try seatpost first and then extension or vice versa?

    a longer stem would make steering not so playful, but if you don't ride technical trails, that will help too

    Revising this old thread with a new build. Just picked up a 2014 Zaskar 100 9r.... a green and black carbon beauty! Bought it off ebay for an easy $600 new with a Deore crank installed....zero miles on this bare bones frame and can't wait to build it up! Plans are 27.5+ Nobby Nic on carbon rear wheel and 29 inch front carbon wheel with WTB Trailboss 2.4 tire and 120mm fork to be determined. Already have a new X-fusion 02 RCX rear shock ready to be mounted. Plans are sram GX 10 or 11 speed with a single oval chainring and eventually a dropper. Plans for this Zaskar are less XC and more slack aggressive trail and head angle will be closer to 68 degrees. 750mm carbon bars and a 60-70mm stem. Should have it ready by late spring 2016!!
