    Hey Green Giant
    how tall are you/ Thanks

    Just a shade under 5'10" in barefeet.

    My initial plan is to run a 100mm stem with a 6 deg rise with 1/2 inch or so of spacers. Straight seatpost.

    Currently running a small Titus Racer x 29er which has a 23.25 inch top tube(effective) with a 90mm stem.

    I have both a 100mm and 110mm stem I will try. Bars are syntace with a 12 deg sweep.

    First - can you make your scale read grams?

    Is the fork a 100 or a 120.

    Enjoy that TB. I am waiting on a Large frame and planning a TB on a serious diet!

    Thanks for the info.

    Doesn't matter for diet purposes, weight is the same save for a spacer.

    My XXL frame with Monarch shock is 5.62 pounds naked. Over 2.5 pounds lighter than my XL Big Mama frame.

    Wonder if it's the paint - or shock, or both? My XXL in black (RP23) with king headset was 5.5. Either way - I'm pretty stoked to have a 24.5lb 29er FS.
