    No clue when I'm going to get the bike (not 100% sure the gal has ordered it yet, she's being awefully cagey AND we just moved household so there's been a ton of money out).

    But I have the grips I want to use (ergon gx1's) - does that count?

    Wheels are flying from the other side of the planet as we speak. My build is set at:

    Medium Frame, currently the NZ distributor doesn't think he's getting any in black, so I'll have to settle with bead blast
    Stan's Arch EX on Hope Pro II Evo, 15mm and 142x12, clad front and rear with tubeless Nobby Nics at 2.25"
    XT 3x10 drivechain, with a decision on bashguard and chainguide down the track
    F34 Float set at 120mm
    XT Ice Tech brakes, 8" front and 6" rear
    Reverb seatpost
    Cane Creek headset
    Easton Havoc carbon bar @ 720-730ish
    Thomson Elite stem @ 70mm
    Yeti grips and Yeti/WTB seat

    I've been getting hints that it should be ready in a few weeks, so I'm starting to get excited!

    As a point of reference, with the 140, how do you think the 95 would climb that short steep section on Apex trail? You know, the one still in the trees, but right next to the drop off to the creek...TALAS needed? Or the last stepped climb, right before the turn to Enchanted Forest?

    My black frame should be here before the end of March, can't wait.

    I'm going X0, Haven (Alu) wheels and cockpit, Talas 34 140's, Hans Dampf and Reverb. Frame is the last piece in this expensive puzzle

    Stupid question, but can anyone confirm that the stock Float 34 fork is internally adjustable to 140? I've got one coming (XT build), with the assumption that it is. I rode this bike on the Magnificent 7 at Outerbike this year, and the extra bit of slack front end/travel would put this bike over the top.

    In the SB-95 Custom Colours? thread John P says "FWIW, the Fox 34 120 can be converted to a 140 in about 10 minutes."

    might race it, but it's my all day/all mtn bike in reality. i'm still undecided on going with the 142 thru or 10 RWS. i've ridden 142 rear bikes in the past, and i'm not sure at my 160 lbs that it's all that much stiffer and/or needed?? the 10mm thru bolt on my big top is plenty stiff. plus.. i'd like to be able to swap wheelsets if needed... any thoughts?

    I am waiting on the 95c as well. It is probably looking like 2x10 XO/X9 combo for me on the drive unless Shimano steps up their XT with some more 29er friendly 2x10 rings like 24/38 or 22/36 like SRAM. I can crank a 26 front 36 rear on my Big Top but lower is welcome for some of the longer/steeper epic rides here in Colorado.

    Black Sb-95

    Just placed my order for a XL black sb-95 today through JensonUSA! I'm stoked about it! I have a fox 34 Talas being shipped to my house too to start the build. Oh and I have Easton Haven wheels for it too.

    I had a couple of random questions about some of the new features of the shimano 2X10 dynasys if anyone could help me out that would be great. I'm 95% going to do a full xt build on it except for the rear derailleur I want to do the new XTR plus and try it out.

    As for my questions....What is the smallest chainring set that can go on a 2 ring xt crank. I only see 26-38 tooth as the smallest. I do a lot of long steep climbs and I had a 22 tooth front and a 36 tooth rear on my old bike. I really liked having the "low" gear once in a while. Also I was wondering if anyone had good information about iscg tabs on the 95? I've seen frame pics of the 66 that has them, and I heard in a round about way that the 95 will have them too. I was just wondering if anyone had anything more concrete?

    Thanks a bunch

    I indirectly addressed this in my post above. The lowest XT 2x10 I know of is 26 front. This is why I went with Sram for my 2x10 drivetrain on my 29er as they offer 22 and 24 front options on X9 and X0 cranks.

    Oh ya, don't know how I missed that in your earlier post....I guess I should take a look at X9. Thanks for the reply

    I'm early in line for a Black Large with XT Race at University Cycles in Austin. No firm dates but it's sooner rather than later.

    Frame will be here Thursday

    The new large black beauty will be here on Thursday.

    I've read & seen pictures on other threads that the black is a flat black. I am excitred about that. I thought the shiny would have done ok, but the flat black makes it look the balls. I have the white 34 fork for it...thinking its going to look smokin hot.

    I'll post pics (if I can) when I'm unboxing and building.

    I wonder if you're one of the guys Mark was telling about, demoing the ride and immediately putting deposit down. ;^)

    According to the user manual on the Yeti web site the frame has the BB splines to take either ISCG/old or ISCG-05 tabs. I believe the SB-66 is the same.

    What I'd like to know is whether the frame comes with the ISCG tab piece or not, or whether it needs be ordered - as I want to put an MRP 2x on mine when I can.

    I've seen discussion in another thread that there was a fitment issue with the tabs on the '95 but I haven't seen details yet nor any info coming back from Yeti about that issue yet (nor would I really have expected the latter, yet).
