    How are you liking the Lev vs the Reverb? I'm thinking of going this same route, especially since I have one of the first Mach 5.7s without the dropper post routing. I'm piggybacking on another cable and have it zip-tied to the top tube cable mounting points. I really like the idea of that stationary cable, but I've heard a couple issues.

    This particular post I read has me worried.
    My LEV broke. The external cable attaches to a barrel nut at the seat collar. The barrel itself is then attached to a nylon cable and the nylon cable is what broke. It looked like when the barrel nut was tightened down it frayed the nylon cable enough that it eventually let go.
    I've also heard their warranty support isn't that great?
    Gotta get up to get down.

    Added Saint brakes and 180mm Ice Techs front and rear! and the I-Spec for the shifter/brakes, sucks that I had to buy both sides just to use the right.

    Nice!! I owned several KDX 200's and always had a soft spot for Kawi's. I always loved having a green woods bike when everything else was yellow or red it seemed. Nice job.

    I converted my Firebird to 650B.

    I bought a set of Sun Ringle Charger Expert 650B wheels, and 2.3 Neo Moto tires. They fit fine in my Lyrik RC2DH fork, and the Firebird rear triangle.

    I absolutely love this mod!! Steering is more precise, and less twitchy. Rolls faster, and corners great. I have 26" and 29" bikes, and have never been able to make up my mind. Now, there is no place I would rather have a 26" bike, and no place I would rather have a 29" bike. This is an absolute keeper.

    I'm still debating on this mod. Not a 100% sure if my Zoke 55 will take the 650 wheels.

    I did a search, and here is one that is converted, and it looks very similar to the clearance on my Lyrik. I have about 5mm at the top.

    Put a 30t wolftooth chainring on. Dropped about 1.5lbs on the FB. Easier to clean that area too.

    I bought my 429 a second wheel set for moderate AM riding and I mounted Specialized Purgatory tires on those wheels. I also bought an extra set of Spesh Ground Controls for it's usual XC wheel set.

    Oh, and I put a new Van 180 and ESI Extra Chunky grips on, both of which I thoroughly enjoy. Was running an 09 float 160 (which was on its last leg) and Rogues before.

    How does this setup work for you? I have the same ring on the way for my 'bird!

    Did the PUSH mod make a difference? On a HL bike, I think it is 100% necessary, but am wondering how much difference there will be on a dw linked bike.

    yes the push mod has made a difference. i got the plush setting. the bike definitely feels better. i wanted them to remove the pro-pedal completely but for some reason they didnt. will probably send the shock back and have them do that, just haven't gotten around to it. dw link doesnt need pro-pedal imo

    I'm really liking the simplicity of the 1 x 10. The ratio of the 30t is perfect for me and its pretty quiet. I've ridden some pretty rough stuff and no dropped chains. No problems bashing it into anything either since its so small. I'm very happy with it.

    Thanks. I agree with the need (or not) for PP on dw linked bikes. I don't think I have ever used it on my bike. Plusher is better and I am always looking for plusher!

    I licked the box. It's sitting on the shop floor waiting for build up.

    Me too! Mine is just waiting on the front derailleur and dropper post, which should both be coming in tomorrow. Hope to be riding it this weekend!

    And the box tasted like chocolate.
