    I can relate to the long seat post. Pretty long reach down to the bar tho for steep decents. Guess that works for some guys.

    Yes i'm tall (1m85) with very long legs (92cm). I am used to ride with the bar under the sadle, and you must know that for this bike, my bar is highter than my older bike. I have no problem in steep decents; where i live, there is very hard trails and for sur, i'm now very much confident with my 29er than with my old scalpel.

    Yes, rear shock is 7.5 eye to eye.
    Was a little concerned about the geometry change and handling. Added the Tora at the same time and I really do not notice much difference.

    Yes, the travel adjust Tora allows you to dial the balance right in. I went with the 318 coil, same thing.

    I have not weighted the bike because I have not been to a bike shop yet.
    Its a 19 inch.
    ThankYou

    One happy 600HT owner here. It's my first Moto. I've only put 20 miles on it so far but I'm very happy with the fit and finish and believe me I'm picky. I've been out of MTB'ing for nearly 10 years but my last bikes were a Specialized FSR and a Cannondale F1000 so I have some high expectations.

    I was looking for a value purchase as I can do all the maintenence myself. I was a mechanic and LBS manager for a few years. Motobecane seemed to fit the bill so I went for it. Couldn't be happier.

    Have you had problems with the Revelation 409 front suspension? I have read some negative reviews.

    I guess my goal of a sub-20lb. mountain bike has been attained?

    Nice!
    You could shave a few more grams by losing those XRP stickers. They are a luv em or hate em kinda thing, and I admit, on some bikes they look better than others (took em off my SS, might take them off my Fantom Team). On yours, I think the stealth rims would look sweet! Luv the bike...hope there is one in my future.

    Those are some amazing looking bikes (I actually licked my lips typing this). Dang that is a huge cog on the Cross! And what is that silver thing dangling off the rear of the Fantom...some sort of chain tensioning device???

    Thanks. I geared my fixed 'cross bike for MTB trails, but after building my geared 'cross bike I admittedly ride that thing mostly. The gearing is 44X22 which is the equivalent of being in the middle ring and middle'ish cog on a 26" MTB with 2.35 tires (32 X 16).

    Yes, that is a chain tensioner for the vertical drop-outs (a Surly Singlator in "push up" mode). It's actually working fantastic.

    The Comp DS is ridden about once every 4 months. It's a nice bike, but I'm really not into big, full suspension bikes with tons of gears - it's heavy (33 lbs), and I hate messing with lock-outs and u-turn adjustments. In fact, I ride my 29'er and my Pake 'Cross bikes the most (below) which are both rigid. For MTB riding, I like single-speed rigids. I'm much faster on the climbs and the descends are not bad. The components on the DS are great except for the wheels, which are old-school loose ball bearing hubs. Plus, I had to resort to "ghetto tubeless" for the rims to seal (Stan's strips didn't work).

    If I know I'm going to be hitting some major rough terrain and little climbing, I will take out the Comp DS. Otherwise, my SS 29'er does it all. Climbing on the Comp DS is an unfortunate task.

    I'm upgrading the cranks today on this bike with some outboard bearings and SLX cranks. I'm over the square taper nonsense!
