    333, I'm waiting for my 700SL frame to arrive (ordered on 8 December '12) and have an XX1 groupset waiting to be fitted... I've ordered XTR trail brakes and Ritchey SuperLogic bars, stem and seat post for it... Are you running the factory fitted fork?? I can't decide between a Fox Talas 27.5 160 CTD-Adj or a DT Swiss carbon fork, any suggestions??

    Its awesome, lot more comfortable and fun than my xc race bikes. Took it to Texas last weekend and had a good time.
    Climbs well, being able to drop the travel down and lock out the rear suspension lets you climb efficiently. Then hit a couple switches and buttons and your bombing down a rough ass hill with confidence.

    Just put a Thomson 50mm stem on last night to see what all the hype is about. Headed to Arkansas this weekend to do some more riding.

    Bike came with the EVO Nics

    It came with tubeless valves and rim tape from DT Swiss. Came with Rockshox bleed kit for seatpost and you have to route the hose yourself through the frame. I cut my hose shorter but didn't have to bleed it after putting back together.

    Put a 2.3 spec butcher control on front and 2.3 spec purgatory on rear and the bike lives the more aggro tires.

    Been hitting all types if trails and it eats them all up. Really love how noticeable the full lockout is especially in its removal of sag and thus steepening of ha.

    Rode 20 Moab trail miles on a 740 demo today. Impressed despite the lower end components. First ever 650b ride for me.

    Can the 700 Genius be build to an Enduro or AM rig?
    Maybe with another shock and burgtec offset bushings for lower head angle?
    What do you think?

    Rode some very technical trails in Austin yesterday 4.5mph avg speed type stuff and the genius ate them up. I must say that the more aggro tires really helped make the bike shine.

    The twinloc is brilliant and I love it more and more. My sag is set at more than recommended to get full use of rear travel so the bb dips a little in full open mode which I love. It also steepens ha and raises bb in locked out mode so on trail tuning of the bike with the flick if the switch works super well.

    So far its excelled everywhere. Even on pavement linking some trails together it feels like a hard tail in locked mode.

    They came with the tape and rim strips. They didn't seal. I had to go with Stan's valve and rim strips.

    Thanks for the info. Sorry for noobish questions, its my first "real" bike. Was there a specific stan kit you purchase?

    I did mine on a 710 with the strips it came with and it worked fine. No leaks on first ride or any after

    I'm sure it will even though I haven't tried one. I've got a 2.3 specialized purgatory in back right now on arch ex rims and its got room. I'll post a pic in a bit.

    Interested to see how wide the 2.5 minions are and if that'll fit back there.

    I'd think so. Hans D are too expensive for me to run in central Texas where tires rarely last the length of tread... Its sidewall tear city here.

    sweet setup. looks like a mix between trail and race with the crests and carbon and eggbeaters etc but with nevegals.

    no remote lockout on the fork?

    Yup, going to use it as my race bike as I already have a Genius LT as my trail bike... Went with Nevegals as they are the best tyre for the conditions here in KL, though a little heavy...

    Never used the fork lockout on my LT, disconnected the cable shortly after picking it up and just prefer to have the fork fully functioning at all times, so I went with the CTD-Adj on the SL, it gives me more scope for adjustment...

    Weaverwins;

    When you lockout your bike does it lock the forks for you the same as the shock?

    On mine nothing seems to happen to the forks... just the shock.

    Fork stiffens up but its not "locked out" I'd say.
