    No EG for me...at least not until they fix a few things. Really, the EG weighs the same (basically) as my SuMo, so I'm not sure there is a spot for it in my stable.

    Actually, I really had a few good rides on the XCL. I'm not used to having such a light bike. I could not keep it on the trail due to my speed and overshooting corners! Holy crap you can really haul ass on a 32 pound bike!

    I'm still dialing in the suspension. So far I'm liking the DHXair...the 36 Talas is a different story. To be fair, I haven't played with the adjustments much, so I'm not going to make any judgements yet. I do LOVE the 3-position travel adust! Perfect travel for climbing, trail riding and the steep and deep.

    Sorry, enough of the non-Titus talk.

    My SuMo misses Dirt Merchant/Lower A-Line.

    Nice looking bike. How much tire clearance is left in the rear tri?

    $hit, I forgot to check that! I'm out of town for 3 weeks too.

    Tire clearance should be fine with that tire (2.35 Highroller). Maxxis run small. I'm going to try my Nevegal 2.5 in there when I get home...I bet they fit.

    The HighRoller runs fairly true or large when compared to other Maxxis tires. I've got that, Ignitors, Nevegals, and Rampages all side by side and it's roughly on the bigger end of things with the Nev.

    Hmm, that's good to know. I'm now confident that a 2.5 will fit easily.

    This is my first experience with the High Roller...I like it.

    But I'd be curious to know myself. They look tough, and I've heard good things.

    I may have read FM didn't like them though.... just occured to me.... could be wrong?

    Nice, Geo!!!

    Did your wife wanted to hang something on the wall and needed space??

    BA&JC... Those tyres look like Spesh Enduro Pro D2. FM used to like them, IIRC. I've never been on them, but Spesh does some fine rubber. I'd love to try the new Resolution, the old is very nice and the Roll-X amongst my favorite rears.

    I'm undecided on those as of yet...since I'm a little new on the bike I've noticed my positioning has tended to be more rear wheel biased (read: riding scared ). This has caused a few washouts of the front wheel in corners...I believe this will change as I gain confidence on the bike.

    The tire rolls very well and it looks to be a true 2.4...it's also relatively cheap ($35) and dual compound; 60 middle, 50 sides. I didn't weigh it, but claimed weight is 785g.

    I'd like to try the Specialized Chunder 2.3 (1-ply). The tread design looks like the High Roller. I also have my eye on the Hutch Barracuda...JC, let us know if you end up trying that tire out.

    Spesh Enduro Pro absolutly rip in losse conditions. the tall lugs really dig. on hard pack the tall lugs can fold.

    Hey Geo....what's the Hammer for...assembling the bike or beating you into shape???

    Nice build dude...it looks like a Horst rear end. Be interested in hearing about stiffness and response (active, not active). I'm in the process of comparing an Intense VPP 6.6 to my Foes FXR right now. Always good to have other benchmarks for 32lb 6" travel bikes.

    Let us know what ya think when you roll it and smoke it!!!

    I carry the Hammer around to bash stray and unruly single pivot riders into the dirt. Also works as a nice response to stupid questions....

    It's a Horst. Stiffness is excellent. It is very active and it climbs great. I have experienced zero stiffening of the rear end under braking. So far so good. Have only had 4 rides on it. BTW, it's not a 6" travel bike...it is 5.

    The rubber handle would need reshaping... and that would work against seal clubbing capabilities.

    Looks small for caribou, also...

    You're right... I should have never questioned your knowledge about caribou; Caribou Jedi Master.
