    No changes to the 429. The frame kit and complete bike are shipping with a taper ST fork and a taper adaptor headset cup. The M4 & M 5.7 have the taper steer tube.

    The 5.7 is in fact replacing the 5. As for the Firebird, no plans to make changes to that bike. The Phoenix has a slacker HT and more travel though...

    Oh and a steeper seat tube angle. It's time for a refresh. Cmon 180mm travel, 65.5 ht angle, and a 73 degree seat tube angle. I agree the rest works just fine.

    I agree, let see...

    maxle rear axle or some kind of thru axle option , maybe interchangble dropouts

    lower BB (which shouldnt be an issue with DW Link)

    Slacker angles @ 66.5-66.7

    Coil shock option

    thats all for now, Im sure more will come to mind

    Angleset on the Firebird is a great option if you want to adjust the HA a bit. I'd be trying one out if I didn't already have the 180 TALAS on mine.

    I don't think the Firebird needs the thru axle rear end for stiffness, but for keeping up with some other companies marketing it might.

    I like the current bb height and HA!

    Mine works brilliantly with a CCDB on it.

    So what do you weigh @ 160lbs soaking wet with a brick in yer pocket?? Believe me when I say anyone over 200lbs appreciates a thru axle on any bike built for real riding, which the FB is def one of those bikes (with some tweaking).

    Personally after seeing the geo #'s for the Phoenix Im sort of leaning that way for my do all bike. Toss a Van 36 180 on front, Ti Spring, 5" Gravity dropper and light/burly wheelset and its good for all day riding.

    I'm about 85kg with all my gear on. I noticed the rear felt stiffer than my Gen 1 Nomad straight away.

    Ok so you weigh 187lbs +/-, I was close!

    Yeah but a lot of people complained about the flex on the G1 Nomads. Anyhow just saying it would be a definite improvement and would affect you light weights adversly but def benefit us clydes.

    I disagree. The F-bird is super stiff. It's not like the bikes with pivots IN the rear triangle - the triangle is all welded up. I wouldn't hurt to have interchangeable dropouts because then you could make ones to lengthen the wheelbase a little or do a maxle or something but the QR dropouts are fine, IMO.

    I just put an order in for a Float 36 180 for my bird

    Lol! I wasn't one of those complaining about the Nomad. I loved that bike. I don't see how a stiffer rear end would adversely affect the ride for lighter riders, just run bigger tyres!
