    Yeah I just can't get the frame dialed in the way I want. I'm gonna drop down to a medium and that will take care of any "largeness" issues

    I've been messing around with various parts / stems / posts / bars and the frame is just a touch long and the stand over is just a touch high so a medium will be perfect!

    DD - I am going with the Metallic Orange with a RP23 instead of the DHX. Float 140 front, new xtr cranks and a new set of formula oro puro's (from you know where!) and a set of hope pro II's laced up to a set of stan's 355's

    Me too. Should be a pretty fun little build. 26lbs or so I'm hoping. Just need someone who wants a like new large black xcl

    Are you going to go DHX Air again or RP23? That'd help save some weight if you're aiming for 26lbs. And it's easier to set up. Plus it's Push-able.

    I'll second what Scruffy says. I have the RP23 on my XCL at Alans suggestion to use it for my size. I'm 225 Lbs and the shock is amazing! Very happy w/it! Alan said that for bigger guys, the RP23 is the better choice since for bigger folks the DHX air tends to blow through the midrange of it's stroke.
