    Just finished my bike build

    So I have idrive 5 4.0 but realized I needed a smaller frame.
    Long story short picked up a brand new in box sz small idrive 5 3.0 for cheap
    Used the bbshell and pivots and bearing from the old frame. I also added 2mm x 39mm orings for inside the pivots.
    I've already got back up flexbones and parts.
    I am using it for xc/am .. 2x9 setup

    Thanks it was challenging dealing a seized crank arm bolt that I had to drill and use a bolt extractor...
    It rides very plush , and I feel more confident with the extra top tube clearance than the med frame had.
    With the longer fork, larger front tire and slightly shorter shock my HA went from 69.5 to 65.5
    I'm really liking the 2x9 setup right now suits north Vancouver style trails.
    I have old 2006 x7 shifters , really wondering how much better the new ones are now.
