    I'm 5'9" on a medium with a 50mm stem. 5'5" should be on a small most likely.

    A couple of pics of mine. Coming off of a SB66a, so the ride is very similar but the weight difference is noticeable and it rides a bit smoother.

    5ft10, 185lbs, size small, 50mm stem. Used for xc rides, freeride, dh.

    SB66a Small 2012
    Fox RP23 Adaptive Logic shock, large fox air can spacer
    Lyrik U-Turn RC2L No floodagate, medium spring
    Thomsson 50mm stem
    Answer pro taper bars 1/2"x750mm
    X7 shifter/x9 rear mech/xt 11-36 cassette/pc1051 chain/P20 guide 2013/MG1 mags
    Yeti ti fly c saddle/use alu seat post
    Hope pro2 evo/stans flow wheels
    Conti baron black chilli tyres
    SLX brakes

    31lbs

    Bike is awesome. Rear shock was not progressive enough for big hits, if i was using it as a trail bike, the rear shock would have been fine, now with the large air can spacer, takes big hits impeccably.

    I demoed a medium, it was too long, got more and more back ache as i got more tired from being stretched, small suits me really well.

    I couldn't imagine using it for trail/xc with 160mm fixed forks, too slack, having the u-turn forks really makes it a multi purpose bike with next to no compromise.

    Isn't quite up to some of the other specs in this thread, but there is nothing on there that isn't up to the job whilst being an ok weight.

    Nice looking bike you have there Miloshark.

    How are you getting on with the Rockshox Monarch RC3? Did you ride your bike with a Fox RP23 to be able to compare the two?

    Mmm. Yeah. Gonna be a while.

    Did the whole 2x10 XTR crankset bash guard question get answered?

    I'll definitely be running 2x10. I definitely won't be using a taco.

    Is the 3x10 crankset my only option?

    No problem. The crankset on mine above would work fine with a bashguard.

    What model? M980? 2x10 plus bash works? I guess you just have really long bolts?

    What kind of bash? Shimano?

    Here's my christmas present, built more trail than AM. I transferred most of the X0 drivetrain from my 2008 575, and the Reverb (new warranty replacement this year)

    SB-66c frame w/ RP23 (no CTD)
    X0 FD, RD (Type 2) 2x10
    X0 Grip Shift
    X0 Crank GXP 38/24
    X0 Trail Brakes 180/160
    Chris King BB
    Chris King Headset InSet2
    Fox 150mm 32mm TALAS CTD
    Easton Haven Carbon bar
    ODI lock-on Yeti short grips
    Thomson Elite X4 Mountain Stem Black 90mm 10 deg 31.8mm
    WTB Rocket V saddle Team
    Reverb Seatpost
    Speeddreams Wheelset (Built by Dave Thomas)
    -> CK hubs, Stan's Arch EX rims with tape
    Maxxis Ignitor Tires 2.3 F + R
    Shimano M540 pedals (pic shows misc flats)
    Weight = ~28.4 lbs on my bathroom scale accurate to .2 lbs.

    Have ridden about six times, in love with the bike. I ride 95% a local trail in NJ (out my back door), been out in the snow the last few days. Took a few rides to get the settings correct. Bleeding the avid rear brake (shortened hose) was a pain, thought it was spongy, but after a couple rides the brakes work perfectly, not sure if they have an internal mechanism to get rid of residual air, or the cold makes it all firmer! Ride open on the shock and fork, except found that platform helps on crunchy snow.

    Still need to trim some cable housings, when it's too cold to ride!

    My Build is still in progress... Waiting on new wheel set and brakes. Weights 28lbs as pictured... I mainly ride aggressive trail, and coming off of an ASR5C, still trying to get it dialed. Truth be told, Not a fan of the Talas CTD. I feel the new CTD leaves a lot to be desired for tuning.

    Build:
    2013 Medium Frame
    RS Monarch Plus RC3
    2013 Fox Talas 34 CTD Chris King Headset
    Renthal Duo/ Fatbar Lite
    Hope Race EVO M4's (getting swapped for Magura MT8's)
    Raceface Next Crank/ Chris King Bottom Bracket
    2013 XTR Drivetrain 1x10 / 34T / Csixx Guide
    2012 Crossmax st's Tubeless (swapped for Carbon wheelset)
    KS supernatural Ibeam/ Kore Seat

    Yes, Good eye... I need a longer cable. At full 150 up with the wide bars, the cable is to short, I ran the cable so it would work for the time being...
