    the build is listed elsewhere on the forum but as a quick breakdown:
    highline medium 600lb spring (i'm a big lad)
    shermans
    hope hubs
    sun rims
    truvativ bits
    fsa head set
    race face evolve chain set
    hone front mech
    deore rear mech
    white tiger rear
    maxxis minion front

    it's brilliant, climbs so well. better than i imagined possible, better by far than a 223dd and better by a considerable amount than a demo eight (better bb clearance).
    nice and short but still stable at speed. steep HA (shaheeb about 68 when sagged) for technical singletrack (the best).
    did a couple of small drops the other night and the weird thing was no banging clattering or fuss, just a squish as the tyres compressed and away.
    the boost control is on the second ring in and the propedal is nearly fully on but not quite. i haven't messed with pressures and it feels great.
    top job dt and crew this is my only offroad bike and as such will be used all year and all weathers i'll keep you posted how it fares.
