    That is a gorgeous bike. Enjoy!
    Taiwan could probably TIG weld a ham sandwich to a dictionary these days, but its been a while since they were doing brazing.

    Wheeeeeee!
    Looks nice! I like the white and blue.

    Is that a Marz 44 or 55 on there? I think you said it was a 160, is it an air version?
    If jackasses could fly this place would be an airport.

    2012 Marz 55 Microswitch TA - that is an air fork, and it is plush! A little heavy, but sweet.

I would want to go more for grip than speed. I was thinking maybe Schwable HD's but i noticed alot of guys are running muddy marry's and others. I understand I could get a hundred different answers as tires are very user specific but a starting point would be good. Also i will be setting up my tires tubless on the flows.
    Mont Ste Marie is running a bike park now?!
    Nice!
    Is Camp Fortune running a bike park in the summer or are the lifts only open when there's races on? I moved away before Fortune started lift access. I raced a few XC races in the early to mid 90's at Fortune.

    I grew up in Ottawa but left before there was any thought of lift access for biking.
    Mont Ste Marie is where I spent my hard earned cash in the winter being a snowboard hoodlum back in the early days of snowboarding!

    Sorry man I meant Fortune, I get them mixed up all the time. I used to ski at both back in the day before snow boards were invented.

    Patience. I'm waiting on the fork to arrive. No shots until then. If all goes well, photos will be forthcoming this weekend.

    I am coming off of a 6 year love affair with my Yeti 575. This thing does everything the Yeti did, but much, much better. As others have mentioned - the overall handling of the bike is phenomenal. Very stiff laterally - makes it super fun side-to-side. Very plush and swallows up small trail chatter and two-foot holes with equal aplomb. It climbs well too, even with a 160mm fork - no problem. The geometry is killer. I had the good fortune of demo-ing the Chilcotin twice on my home trails, but when I tried the Endorphin, it felt the same on the downhills, but much more nimble on the flats and climbs. It's a stout frame. The cool thing was, I transferred virtually all of my parts over from my 575, and the XL bike weighed in at 29lbs, 13 oz - a full pound lighter than my 575. Same fork, wheels, tires, drivetrain, cranks, h-bar, stem, saddle, brakes, etc.

    Wheeeeeee!
    Post some more pics of that beauty!

    I haven't heard anything yet about delivery time. I figured Mid-Jan. Does this mean I have to decide on a crank set? Oh...and the rest of the build. Gah, I better get busy!

    I guess it was just wishful thinking seeing that tiSSer already got his. I heard they left Taiwan a few weeks ago.

    I'll play along....

    First, I gave her a bath and then bought her some Xmas Jewelry.

    A Wilma 6, the newest version that throws out a whopping 2400 Lumens.

    I then took Dude!'s advice and am giving the new XTR's a try. The Podium will get the XTR Trail and the Delirium will get the XTR Race. So far they feel really, really good!

    I'm really excited to see the pictures of your new carbon-fiber, 27.5" Podium. I don't know how Noel made it 8.75" of rear travel with those big tires. AMAZING!!!
