    Did some swapping and ditched my Salsa El Mariachi for an X-5.
    Only ride I've gotten out on is actually to make sure I wanted to trade framesets, still getting everything dialed in. Almost there and hoping to get some rides in while waiting for stiffer fork spring and deciding what to do with the rear shock (could use some advice from other Clydes on shock setup).

    Have to add pics soon.

    Welcome to the family! Looking forward to seeing your build.

    My thoughts (I was 200+ lbs when I was riding my X-5).

    I've run the RP23, DHX, Monarch Plus, and CCDB on the bike. CCDB hands down for that bike. I liked the Monarch Plus too, but had too many headaches with it.

    I really liked running it with the Fox 36 in the front. Very nice stiffness to match a stiff frame.
