    Hawt Hawt Hawt! That frame just screams quality!

    Would love to hear a ride report.

    I have exactly 1/2 of your stable. For now. And a Fox fork (plus other "bits" on the way)

    The pic of the headtube gussets wraping around the headtube badge did it for me. Now to figure a out a color. Nice build. Let us know how the new XT works out especially the brakes.

    I have a set of those brakes on order from Ventanarama, can't wait to get them. The new XT gear sure is purty!

    I am 6 foot. I haven't had a chance to ride it yet because today's ride required a squishy. Ride report to follow soon.
