    They actually have you enter key measurements and will make changes to things like stem, bars etc.. based on those.

    I think they just improved the antisquat on their bikes which should help get them more in the spotlight. A lot of their bikes where dated geo. So YT took a lot of the business.

    Fezzari needs to change their name. It's an awful name.

    The name would never stop me from getting a bike either. In fact, the Abajo Peak is on my list of possible candidates. But that doesn't mean their name doesn't suck, and anyone will tell you marketing and image are important if they want to grow.

    Looking real hard at the Fezzari Signal Peak. Not a ton of info on them, but I can easily demo one in SLC when I visit my kids. Weight is the same as a Sniper NM.

    Also, two water bottles and room for a frame bag, way more bikepacking friendly than most of the bikes I'm looking at.

    The love or leave it 30 day guarantee is a nice benefit, as is the lifetime warranty.

    $2800 for a frame, Fox Factory shock, Pike RCT3.

    Geo is not ideal, kinda steep at 68 deg (120mm fork), though I'd likely run a 130mm, probably looking at an XL cuz I like a long reach. CS is one of the shortest of the bikes I'm looking at.

    After the New Year... review to follow.

    Fezzari has really got me interested in their products. I love all the stuff you mentioned. Their bikes also seem to be very light. Hopefully that doesnít mean flexy too. In additional to all that they have one of if not the most comprehensive website full of info to help us non-bike shop going people. I really like the idea of being able to directly communicate with the manufacturer and that they want to help problem solve, kinda filling the bike shop role.

    I hear theyíre releasing an ebike in the next two weeks. All of my buddies just got Ď19 Levos so I might be buying my first Fezz.

    Yup, very informative and very helpful, spoke to a Fezzari CS guy yesterday who laid out all the options, he even went and talked to an engineer after I mentioned running a shorter offset. Their CS and product selection process reminds me of a Guerilla Gravity.

    I'm thinking Fox SC 34 120mm (44mm offset), Fox 34 130mm, or Pike RTC3 130mm (42mm offset).

    Frame also take 29 x 2.6 and 27.5 x 2.8, 2100gm without shock.

    I'm not a huge fan of bright green, but the midnight blue is close enough to black for me.

    Off Topic: As to ebikes, having had a Levo hardtail and FSR in our stable (wife's bikes), we recently upgraded to the "best of the best", a Pivot Shuttle. All I can say is there are lots of ebikes out there, but there is only one Shuttle. It was well worth the money, nothing else even comes close. We found one on sale for 25% off, 8k out the door!
