    Very cool. Is it a whole bike yet? Looking forward to a review of your set-up.

    I went for 160 fork and found it quite ok for my local not-so-steep trails. climbing even with TRC turned on might be a bit of an issue compared to stock fox forks though... But I guess I should get a flatter handlebar

    My overall set-up, for do-it-all locally and maybe some Enduro events in alps,

    kona cadabra 2011 size 19" + stock fox rp23 shock
    bos deville 160 trc
    hope pro 2 + sapim cx ray + ztr flow wheels
    formula the one '08 brakes, 203 upfront, 180 in the back
    geax neuron 2.3 tnt DH tyres
    shimano deore xt cranks + e-13 lg-1+ 36 e-13 chainring
    sram x0 shifter / sram x9 derailleur 9-speed
    kmc x10sl chain
    sunline v-one stem 50mm
    time z freeride pedals
    kind shock supernatural seatpost with remote
    chromag osx handlebar 760mm

    old photo with stock fox:

    I could save some weight on some stuff, but I don't really care

    nice pic, tresh! my frame should arrive this week. I send a pic when it's built. I verified the size for my height 1m87 and karim amour agreed 19 inch frame is the right size. I was in doubt between 19 and 20. do you have a pic. of your bike with the bos fork?

    yes I do, but the quality is crappy

    btw I'm 1.87 or something like that too, and chose 19" as well - ok for me with 50mm stem...

    just copy and paste the following:

    img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/29/23941396.45/0_677c9_e26788cf_orig
    img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/29/23941396.45/0_677c8_c4854d40_orig

    don't have any nice riding pics yet, guess why

    good to hear that about the sizing. I have the easton haven 55 mm stem. is that e13 lg1 wth fit between the bb you use? I use xcx now but for racing in the alps I need chainring protection. That's why I ask this.

    yeah it's e-13 lg-1+. as my frame doesnt have ISCG mounts I opted out to use the bb adaptor and some spacers on bb (don't really remember how many of those though). no issues so far, though I only raced for a couple of days and did some AM descents for another week.

    but if you're getting a 2012 frame, ISCG mounts should be there already
