    Any recommendations for rims?)
    Stans' flow rims all the way. I have tried to kill mine and so far they have held up great.

    The 2012 El Guapo uses 8.5x2.5" (216x63mm), and that's available. I got mine on Pinkbike for cheap.

    At 5-11 you are solidly a large with about a 60-70mm stem. I'm like 5-11.75 and ride a large, 33" inseam. I have a couple friends with mediums and they feel pretty small in comparison.

    No I don't, but I can take one next time I ride.

    I would not recommend M unless you are specifically looking for a compact fit. My large feels perfect for an AM bike.

    Cool thanks. I'm looking into Cane Creek ZS49 for the top and ES49/40 for the bottom. Also looking into the Gravity 1 headset which is a little bit cheaper. But from reviews, I think the cane creek might be the way to go.

    Yeah I called and talked to them a week ago and said it wouldn't work with my frame cause the headtube is 1.5 top and bottom. The smoothie is 1 1/8 on top and 1.5 on bottom.

    I have an adjust travel RS Revalation. I've dropped it down on a few climbs now, and it's an alright feature, but I really don't prefer it. It makes the bike feel unbalanced. My shock is 150mm, if I had a 160mm of travel and I could drop it down to 150, that would be cool.

    Only difference between 09 & 10 was the rectangular rear stays vs. the hydroformed tubing on the 10. The 10 was +-150 grams lighter.

    Here's my 2009/2010 EG. Its only been 3 weeks but I love the way she rides. Great climber and still getting used to it downhilling. Rides a lot like my 2008 Titus Carbon Racer X (which I took all the parts from). Big Thanks to Shiggy and Titus for helping me with the head tube and seat tube problem. They had to ream it out and installed the headset cups for me.

    EG - Medium
    Fox 150 RLC
    XTR 9 speed shifter
    XT RD & FD
    XTR 960 cranks
    XT Pedals
    No Tubes Wheels
    Minion 2.5 Front and 2.35 Rear
    Saint Front Brake
    XT Rear Brake
    Reverb dropper
    WTB seat

    I will be changing parts out as I go but for now she rides.
