    Post your Alchemy Arktos build 27.5 and 29

    I'll be putting my 27.5 together next week and I'd love to see some other builds.

    I haven't seen one of these threads for Alchemy so I figured I'd start it!

    Lets see how everyone built theirs up!

    Teaser pic, updates below!

    Of course a little Enve Bar/Stem action (got the old RSR bar because I like the rise/sweep)

    I finally have it tuned in, it was a lot of work getting to this point but I'm really enjoying the way this bike rides.

    It's basically the XT enve M630 build.

    - Brakes,I had some Formula T1 203 F/R rotors laying around in the parts bin so I threw those on and sold the XT brakes.
    -Pedals are one up.
    -Tires are Minion DHF 2.5 F/R (plenty of clearence) while I warrant this DHR 2.4
    -Frame Bag Black Burn outpost corner bag with a 3m clear bra and velcro mount. (crash tested on the first ride)
    - Shrink tube on the cables

    Nice build dark horse. What size frame and do you know the max seat post insertion? I'm trying to work out how long a dropper I can use on an XL frame.

    Any further follow up reports on these bikes? Iím quite interested in the 29 ST.

    How is rear tire clearance? I love the 2.6 tires (Maxxis and bontrager) Iíve been running. 2.6 is not officially supported, but Iím curious if it will fit. I ride in a mostly dry climate.

    Just received new Arktos ST this afternoon. Got to take it on small loop of some mild single track this evening. It rides great and excellent customer services from Alchemy team....

    My initial order was the grey, but had to ship it back due to shipping damage to the swing arm. The grey was clean too.

    Once I have more seat time on more technical terrain... I'll give feedback.

    Looking forward to hearing more. Do you have pictures that would show the color of the grey bike?

    What size is your bike? Is that a stock build from Alchemy, if so which one.

    Sorry didn't take any pics of the grey... Size medium, stock XO build. I am 5' 8" with short reach... the medium feels perfect for me.
