    Custom Kent Eriksen 5" travel bike. The Cinco's brother from another mother! Best part is it only costs a couple hundred bucks more from Kent built to fit you. I don't have one, yet. I do want to add one to my garage though for stuff that is rougher then the YBB can handle.

    I mean look at the Cinco!!

    Who wants a Pivot if the cinco is an option

    Ok I've never ridden a Pivot, but I do ride a Cinco (and have owned and ridden a variety of other bikes Ellsworth Truth, Stork Rebel Carbon, Santa Superlight, Intense Spider etc.)

    The Moots is always the bike I want to ride

    It might not be the best for 24 hour racing, thats probably more suited to a lighter weight 4 inch travel full susser?

    The Cinco is perfect for trail riding...it needs to have the rear suspension on pro-pedal setting for climbing, and then unleashes on flat ground or downhills with the rear shock fully working...it is a singletrack monster, and comfortable enough for all day

    Its emphasis is on maximum fun, rather than competitive X-country racing...would be perfect for Super-D

    You can build it to 26 pounds with light components

    As far as custom sizing, I think this is an unnecessary expense unless you are not a normally proportioned person...get a stock size it will be just as good
