    New Legend Build

    I was on a 2011 Legend and was going to freshen it up but found a deal on a 2016, so sold my old bike complete and built this up.

    Emerald Fork
    Vivid shock for now (waiting on Jade)
    Saint brakes
    Saint cranks
    Sram XO DH 7 speed drivetrain
    Chromag 35mm stem, bars
    Chromag grips
    Chromag seat

    Great looking ride! Maybe put it up against a lighter background to get a better look at it.

    Thanks. The bike is fantastic. Already have a few days on it at the bike park and heading out this Saturday to Whistler for two weeks. Very surprising to me how the jump to 650b wasn't noticeable very much compared to my older Legend. Everything I loved about my old bike, but even better. Planning on getting some better pics soon.

    Since officail legend thread does not seem to exist I'll post my question here:

    What would you say about a 170 cm (5ft 7" in weird units) on L Legend? I have always pretty much ridden only M bikes, but I feel like my M spitfire (430 reach) is just a little bit short. Some most popular current MY dh bikes in M come with reach around 430mm which is really similar to L legend so would this be the size for me?

    I'm 6'1" on a XL. You'd prob be fine on a L.
