    you're gonna like the revelation. Hint: run as much air, or 5-10 psi MORE in the negative air chamber. It will make the fork more plush and handle the small bumps better.

    Flboy the new frame looks super sexy! Enjoy it. I've tried the revelation on my buddy's bike and to me it felt super plush (me being used to FOX F120).

    Here is my 2010 Mt Vision. I bought just the frame w/RP2 shock from Adrenaline for $650 shipped. Built it up with all the parts from my old (and now cracked) MKIII. She is not light (something like 31.5), but I hope to get these hubs re-built with something lighter than the Maxic XM321 rims on there now. It took a little while to feel the love, but she is growing on me each time I ride it.

    The only changes since this pic are the tires have been replaced with 2.4 / 2.25 Nobby Nics, and I have a slightly wider bar on there.

    The fork is a PUSHed Pike Uturn coil. I generally run it at around 118-125mm.

    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.

    Just put on a new wheelset, tires and a bunch of XTR parts. Going riding in the Alps next week! I love this bike.

    So how does the WR ride with the bigger wheels? Any bottom out issues?

    No bottom out issues on either even though MV rear wheel will touch at 49mm travel. WR has clearance so is fine. 650B is a good mod to any 26" front. In loose conditions there is a 29erish stability and grip. I can't see myself riding the MV without it now. The WR is slacker with longer wheel base so doesn't need the stability,but it definitely improves cornering grip in loose conditions. I ride some trails which are hard packed shuttle runs. On those trails I can't push it hard enough to notice any extra cornering grip but the bike feels like it has extra zip on the downs.

    Adding the 650B rear gives a lift in speed which is nice. Haven't done any back to back tests over rough terrain yet to determine if it smooths out the trail much. After initial riding with the odd sharp edged tree root I would say it's not night and day difference. Like a 29er you would notice the difference in rollover more in moderate rocky terrain which I don't have.

    I've got a Anthem X 29er and it's not a patch on the 650b WR on the big stuff. I won't be rushing to get a 29er Trail bike as I think a 650B 5.5" to 6" trail bike is were it's at.
    The 2011 MV XM series has almost identical Geometry to the WR. So that should be a 650B sleeper.

    This is my first 29er...It's a totally stock 2011 Marin Bolinas Ridge. Very happy with it. I plan a few mods in the future.

    I'm liking the bikes in this thread

    After MTBR informing me that I haven't posted in a while I have decided to upload a few photos of my 2003 Indian Fire Trail.

    It is mainly made up of old components from my main bike hence some of the colour mismatching. I use it in the wet weather.













    Installed the following saddle a few weeks ago because the old one broke:

    Nice bike. Very impressive collection of old components. I had an early 90's Indian Fire Trail with polished alloy frame.

    This is my old 06 Wolf Ridge, my first long travel full suspension, I loved this bike, it used to sit in my living room next to my tv and I would watch it almost as much. I gave it to my brother in law so it's still in the family. I upgraded to 2011 Enduro Pro

    Pretty stock, but really am enjoying the ride/feel of this bike. It's my first 29r. Upgraded front and rear der to x9, and shifters are x0 grip. I dislike thumb shifters. Selle saddle.... I guess the fork will be next, cause it is really unstable and wobbly. However, i must say the shock absorbing abilty/performance of suspension forks has come quite a ways. My last experience was with a then top-of-the-line JudyXC. Brand spanking new and pricey in 1997!!!

    It rides great, especially with DHX Air. I had RP23 HV before, so can compare them. DHX can hold larger DH-like sag (I rode about 1/3). Anyway I wont install the float back, will store it just as spare shock because for me 1 propedal position is enough, even in am trips.
    the only downside of the attack trail - it is short, I had to use 60 mm stem instead of 40-50 I like.

    p.s. Hope to return there next year. With Quake ))

    So drops that big on the AT doesn't bottom it out I guess?

    Yes. At least I think - yes. You see, on the third day I broke my HV pump and had to ride with the pressure just a little lower that I wanted, with a kinda of DH-like sag. So I had only 1 or 2 bottoms...jumping over smaaal gutters.
    But I have never got any bottoms on drops and kickers (including the pictured ones), always had circa 3-4 mm of unused stroke. And 5-10 mm on the fork (extra-soft spring and 68 kg).

    p.s. before installing I asked our local ditributer about DHX air on AT. He`d got an answer from Jason "fits and works fine."

    AT has a good midstroke support on low sag (compared with other AM rigs I had before - reign and Prophet).
