    Nice! Completely stock no pedals? What size?
    My shop in town just got an element 770 msl. We were commenting on how bulky the CTD remote is, probably lose 454 g just by losing that.
    Get out there and ride it, would love to hear.

    It's not my bike...from Holland I think. Hopefully Fox will come out with a lower profile remote soon. I plan to have the fox remote work both the shock and the fork, and I've got the remote situated under the left side of the bar in place of a front shifter, so at least it is a little more 'tidy'.

    As soon as anyone gets a complete 750, a photo on a scale like the one by Skyak would be greatly appreciated!

    2013 Rocky Mountain Altitude 790 MSL

    Good review. More trail, less all-mountain. Set-back seat post sounds like a good fit.

    Absolutely, the 750MSL is my personal favourite.

    That SO sick! I was thinking about the 750 or 750msl and the gray looks kinda ugly in the stock pics, but that is sweet!! Thanks for putting that up, I am now leaning toward the MSL.. now if I could only get rid of that CTD handlebar remote..

    That is not the shadow plus.. I can't believe it doesn't come with it..

    If you look at the specs as well, the 750 only says XT where the 770 specifies the shadow plus.

    I know what you mean. I may try and sell my bike and get the 750 or 750 MSL.

    If I could convince the wife, I would want to get the shadow plus and/or a 2x guide, wider bars, a dropper and eventually new brakes, but it just adds up quickly. On the MSL, I absolutely HATE the CTD handlebar remote, so I am leaning to the 750Ö but Iíve never had a carbon frame and it would be cool to try

    You just have to not tell her till you have to and deal with it for a week or two, that"s how I did it, course I put down 1700$ I'd been saving. I have a kronolog sittin in a box waiting. I'm not to partial about the shimano stuff, either, I'll just have to upgrade as I break parts. Also I ordered the 750 cause my brother's an excellent tig welder

    HA she would be like this... and I would be like this. I actually just sold my bike, so looks like one of these will be coming down the pipeline. What does everyone think? Sram/Carbon/ugly remote or shimano/alu/no ugly remote??

    Just ordered up one of these beauties

    Gonna get a Easton havoc bar and a 2X guide by either Truvativ or MRP. Brakes will be next, but that may need to wait a month or two.

    Sram stuff's good, Maybe modified ugly remote, maybe use some paddles off an old shifter....
