    New rig: 2012 Scale Pro



    Changes made so far:

    XX crankset
    Easton EC70 flat carbon bar
    Easton EA90 stem
    Crank Bros. Cobalt 11 seatpost (I'm anal so I painted the gold clamp black)
    Phenom saddle
    ESI Grips
    Frogs
    Easton XCT wheelset tubeless w/ Crossmark tires

    With the heavy wheelset/tire combo it's at 22 pounds 6 ounces (size Medium). Will switch to lighter when the need arises, but it's already 8 pounds lighter than my old 26er full-suspension.

    So far it's a sweet ride. Stiff and climbs very very well. My only complaint is that the front end seems a little high even with no spacers and a zero degree stem, but maybe that's just a 29er thing that I'll get used to (or I'll switch to a negative stem).

    Now, off to get it dirty...

    Very Nice.

    I thought mine was high on the front as well, but after riding it a few weeks I think it was just the 26 to 29er transition. I haven't ridden my 26 FS since I brought this. I thought I would alternative but that hasn't happened.

    Looks good! W/ the stem all the way down, make sure your brakes/shifters clear the top tube when the bars are turned around. If they don't make sure they aren't too tight. Seeing a lot of 29er carbon folks damaging their bikes from that...

    No chain slap protection? I cut my stocker off my expert today because it was loose. I'm going to try lizard skins.

    Sorry, delayed response! Yes, there is a lizard skin chain slap protector on there, but it's really thin and kinda hard to see.

    I think the light front wheel feeling is as much a part of the overall geometry as your bar height on that frame. Makes for a kick when you are descending. Can be a boon on technical climbs, too, once your muscle memory gets tuned into it.
