    The Final Build!!!!!!!


    Frame: 2010 El Ciclon Path Edition W/ 5.5 Rockers
    Size: M/L 17
    Shock: Fox Van R 650 spring
    Fork: Rockshox Sektor RL Dual Position Coil 150 w/ X-Firm Spring
    Brakes: Shimano XT with 160 xtr Front Sinitered/160 slx Rear Resin
    Cranks: Shimano XT
    Drivetrain: SRAM front derailleur, XT rear derailleur, XT cassette (11/34) and shifters
    Headset: Cane Creek S3
    Bottom Bracket: Shimano XT
    Pedals: Shimano DX
    Stem: Thomson X4 50mm
    Handlebar: Easton Havoc Alu 750mm 1.5 rise
    Saddle: SDG Aliso
    Seatpost: Thomson Elite
    Wheels: Front SLX qr15/adaptor 9mm thru bolt, Rear ShimanoZee 135x10 thru bolt, Mavic EN521 rims, DT Swiss RWS
    Tires: Kenda Nevegal 2.35 ft, Telonix 2.2 rr


    I was running a 100mm stem, but after seeing what a lot of others have been saying about the merits of a short stem, I decided to try out the 50mm and I'm liking it a lot. I thought the cockpit would feel really cramped, but it actually feels better on the climbs. I ditched the XC wheels for the 521s. The bike feels much more confident now and downhills are much more fun. There is a weight penalty, but after switching to the shorter stem, it seems the new body position actually is enhanced and I'm still able to put down power to the pedals. Well, I think after 6 months of tinkering...it's fianlly complete. Now...................gotta ride more!

    Still Stoked on My El Ciclon!

    Two months later, added the following:

    --Gravity Dropper (Turbo Model), dropped some grams, replaced the GD "Classic" model
    --Got the Fox 32 Talas CTD PUSHED (Factory rebuild, Big Hit re-valving, and TALAS to Float Conversion set at 150mm).
    --AEST Platform Pedals (280 grams)

    When I bought the used 2013 Fox 32 TALAS, it had zero movement in the initial stroke, no small bump compliance. After the PUSH re-build, HUGE difference, it was pricey, but worth it in my book.

    Totally stoked with this bike (now at 29 lbs), and with the dialed in suspension the bike just went to another level! Now if you all will excuse me, Im going riding!
