    Gray XCL in da house...
    Got her completed and got to ride Sunday. Need to sort the air pressure out in the rear, but overall, this thing freakin' RIPS! I love it. Better balance than what I had before and stiff like I prefer.

    Things that kinda suck are the brakes. I hate them. Soft as **** and too progressive for me. I am used to road racing motorcycles and I like instant braking. Any thoughts on tuning that in a little better? Basically, has nothing to do with the bike - just the feel...

    I love this thing and cannot wait to get it really dirty and push on it more... More than I need, but allows me to grow into it rather easily...

    Here's some pics. Not as fancy as some of you alls' bikes, but I like 'er...










    And of course,

    nice bike! The XCL is such a classy looking bike!

    Maybe your brakes need a good bleed. also make sure they rotors are centered between your pads and the pistons are not sticking, as this can cause the brakes to feel spongy.

    Looks sharp. I like the added red pieces too. Only thing I would change would be to change out the front hub to red also.

    It's a 15mm TA. No red options for the front. Hence the red nipples up front, though...

    They are literally brand new. They were that way from the start... I might try a bleed, though...

    I think Chumba needs to build some front hubs for the 15mm TA Fox forks.
