    Thinking about ordering a 9.8, looks pretty sweet
    Only change is my wide rimed carbon wheel set, some 780 bars if the put narrow ones on and my seat
    Once you go slack, you never go back!

    My 9.8 should also ship Sept. 8th. Really excited.

    Going to be moving most of my build kit over from my 2013 Slash since I have XO1 and King Hubs already. Going to lace them to a set of spank oozy trail rims, swap the seat, and do a few other things to tone down the green. Ditching the XT brakes day one and moving my XO trails over. Not sure which length seat post the new one comes with, but after 4 warranty posts I now have a 150mm reverb stealth that I want to keep forever. So that's coming, too. I'll probably keep the stock bars/stem for a month or two until I get a feel for it. It would be nice if the bike came with some 780's, but I'm guessing that it's spec'd with 750's.

    Really wish Trek would start doing frame-only sales again on the mountain bikes.

    JMUSuperman... could i buy those XT brakes and rotors off of you? hahaha... i really dont want the deore brakes... but i don't have the money to buy XT's... you'd be helping out a Beach Lifeguard and Mechanical Engineering student who is struggling to pay for college hahaha.

    Tone down the green!?? I love the green! Haha!

    I think there should be more green in fact.. the evo link, grips, and pedals to start.

    To each their own. Beautiful bike nonetheless. Congrats!
