    That bike looks pretty familiar G! Nice build. Let's get out on the trail soon.

    my Mach 6

    LOVE this bike - and love the color too, as opposed to the fluorescent choices. Had a Reverb added and changed the tires out to tubeless Conti's. I'll go carbon rim soon but not sure which one yet.

    Also note the ties for the cables around the Fox shock. I had LBS take a whack at it and it works perfect now. No bulging cables.

    Mach 6



    Next change will probably be replacing the xo1 chainring/spider with a direct mount chainring.
    Pivot mach 6!

    I'm doing this as well, after only 400 miles my X01 chainring had terrible 'chain suck'. We'll see if the Wolftooth ring is any more durable.

    Ive been on a Wolftooth for 3-4 months now in all conditions, compared to my XX1 no chain suck to date, ive ridden in more diverse conditions and its been quiet and still looks good, the XX1 would be a giveaway by creaking esp when wet, they do not wear well, hopefully Sram will address this, I know they are aware of the problem.

    Pro racers probably get new ones every few weeks, so well see, otherwise people going to buying aftermarket replacements and probably lose market share pretty quick, my next crank for example wont be an XX1, its a great crank though, but I will go RaceFace Next with a couple Wolftooth comp front rings 32 t general riding, 34t Enduro racing.
    cheers

    FYI I looked at the RF Next before buying my XO1's. The weight difference is only there because SRAM uses the super heavy spider instead of the RF/Wolftooth style single ring. You can get the XO1/WT setup and save about $100 US here vs the RF Next setup and have a nearly identical weight setup. The new SRAM XX/XO1 setups no longer include a chainring either so it is cheaper to go WT either way. The RF Next is a SWEET looking setup though. Can't go wrong either way.

    Did you weigh the XO1/WT setup you are using?

    I'm assuming we are talking the aftermarket XO1 vs. the OEM cranks.

    HR2 2.3. Awesome tires, but they don't last terribly long.

    The black is nice.

    Are they 2.2 rubber queens?
    I'm going to buy some but am undecided between 2.2 and 2.4.......

    The bike above is running Mountain Kings.

    I love the Rubber Queens (Trail Kings). I am currently running 2.4"s on my 26er and I have a fresh 2.2" set of TKs for my new 650B rig. With the taller wheels I figure I'll benefit from some weight savings and less rolling resistance while still getting good roll through on the rough tech sections.
    Safe riding,

    I see there MK's now. I've use 26 versions before and liked them.
    I think I'm going keep these bos on here too.
    The pikes are good and lighter but i just don't love them.
    Out on the trail, i love the bos.
    Is 170 too much for the m6 though? A ~c is only a couple of mm difference.

    The a-c is the most important number versus fork travel IMHO. How much taller is the Deville than a pike at 160mm? Btw I love my Deville on my mojo HD. Slamming the stem may help keep the front end from wandering but it looks like you have limited spacers there already.

    I've left loads of steerer on both until i find a happy setup.
    The stem has 10mm of spacers underneath at the moment. Feels best with none, maybe, 5mm.

    A~c on the 650b pike is 552
    A~ c on the 26inch, bos 170 is 555
    Doesn't seem like there's any offset difference between the two.
    Bugger all difference really.
    My rear tire is shorter than the front too which steepens h/a slightly.

    Given the minimal difference in a A-C I think it would ride just like it would with the160mm Pike 27.5 So if you like the feel of the Deville more I would use the deville

    This would actually slacken the H/A. Bike looks awesome! Very curious about the Bos suspension.
    I like to ride bikes fast.

    You're right, i don't know why i put Steepen instead of slacken, probably still pissed from last night.
    Thanks for the compliment on the bike.
    Just got back from the first 'proper' ride on it.
    Was good, a few mixed feelings about it, very different from the enduro.
    Float x could do with more mid stroke support.
    I ran the pikes today.
    It's a great bike. Look forward to spending more time on it.

    Can't wait to hear what you think after a few miles on it. The difference is subtle but I am much more comfortable on the M6 vs the HD.
