    Awesome looking set up bro. Love the blue pedals
    I just got myself a blue frame aswell.
    Did you get the Fox 34 forks spaced down to 130mm or did you keep them at full travel.
    Im waiting on a Pike 140mm fork that im going to put on later this week and am hoping the longer fork doesn't mess the handling.
    Cheers

    Thanks!
    I kept it at 140. The steerer was only 6 3/8 so it's slammed with one thin spacer. I though it climbed and handled great. More rides on it will give me a better answer though.

    Do you have your front rotor mounted the wrong way? The arms look like they are pointed the wrong direction. Otherwise the bike looks great. It's the first time I have liked the all black Pike on a frame.

    I am ordering one in about 6 weeks. Trying to decide between the 34 with 130mm travel or the 32 120. It's mainly xc around here but I'm pretty aggressive. Does it still handle well with 130 up front 120 in back? Thanks! And @danoxc the black forks look awesome!

    I have a 2012 Bandit29 and have discovered a major crack on the chain stay, currently trying to sort warranty. Is this common with this model?

    @ jonesy22 I am in the same boat. Right at 5'10 between a 31 and 32 inseam. Every other bike I've ridden prefer medium. But transition says I could go either way. THere is a deal on a used one but not sure if medium is too small. I have no way to test either

    I think go large. I'm 5ft6 on a medium and it is perfect with a 70mm stem. Standover is a little tall but I got over that quick.

    I am 5'7" with longer than average legs and I still like the way my medium with 70mm stem fits. I would think at 5'10" get a large and run a real short stem if needed.
