    Looks sick! I'm waiting on a warranty for the exact same frame and finish. Almost bought another one so I didn't have to wait.

    That's a decent price for a mint looking Socom. If my warranty takes 4 ever would you consider selling just the frame?

    Yeah, I can probably sell the CCDB without much trouble. Hopefully this will be sold before "forever" though. CCDB would be a great upgrade if you don't already have one...

    Didn't mean forever literally. I'm being patient with the warranty, it takes time and they have been super cool.

    You also have a large Socom?

    I have not decided for certain what bike I will get. I'm going to look into possible semi-custom options, but I'm waiting to have cash in hand first, otherwise I look like a dreamer who is not ready to put money down. I have several bikes for sale that will fund this.

    I want a minimum 25 inch top tube. 25.5-26 would be ideal. I run a 27 inch top tube on my XC bike. Most bikes with 25+ inch top tubes have 21+ inch seat tubes but I don't want a seat tube longer than 19.5 inches.

    What I would prefer is an extra long, shortish travel DH bike, basically an AM bike that is built low slung like a DH bike. 66 ish head angle, 5-7 inch travel (geometry is more important than travel, my trails are not that Gnar) Long top tube, short seat tube. Any suggestions?

    Yeah I have a large Socom, its pretty small, but I compared it to a v10 and it was slightly bigger. I have measured lots of dh bikes, the large are all a similar size. I have fitted some wide handlebars so I don't feel I am going over the bars as much and I have a 60mm stem I would like to try a longer one. Its still a bit squashed and I doest feel that stable at high speed. But in Ireland there isn't much super high speed stuff. (In canada at the moment)
    Options
    Turner are bringing out a DHR at the end of the year with the DW link in a size XL for larger riders. Evil have an XL revolt but it doesn't seem to be that big really, its more in tune with a large.
    Another option as you mentioned you don't want a full DH machine is the Cannondale Perp in XL its got a 25 inch top tube, seems to be pretty big.
    From an all-mountain viewpoint my second bike is a scott ransom I have a large (got it cheap!) but the XL has a 25 inch top tube.
    I guess I'm used to riding small bikes now, but would like to have more room to move around. and sometimes when I'm thrown forward a bit Id like more room to compensate, the wide bars help a lot.
    Another route you could go is custom, zumbi in poland will do a custom machine, I emailed them and they seem very helpful.

    Thanks for the ideas. I forgot about the Ransom, that bike really caught my attention when it first came out. Very expensive though... I just checked out the 2010 Turner RFX and the 2x size is looking almost perfect. A bit longish in the seat and head tube, but Dave has been known to make a few small geometry adjustments in the past, just have to ask real nice and put some cash in the handshake...

    ?
    Why did you have to warranty your Socom? What happened?
