    Nice. Do you think it would fit a 27.5+ wheelset? I want to do a custom build Cutthroat.

    They're flooding in right now - my LBS just got a bunch of them in stock.

    Mine arrived last Thursday and I got to ride it on Friday. Unfortunately, only 25mi but the bike felt great. Ride was mostly dirt roads with a bit of VT class 4(unmaintained public rights of way) and a bit of pavement mixed in. Initial impressions were that the bike is more compliant in the back than the front and a very efficient climber. Handing was very stable, as expected.

    When I was setting the bike up, I thought the cowchippers were everything I've wanted the woodchippers to be but after riding them came to the conclusion that they're more comfortable for me when in the hoods and in the higher part of the drops when braking but I do miss the flat area in the lower part of the drops for cruising. Excited to try the bike on singletrack but that will have to wait until spring as winter has begun to set in here in VT and the local trails are closed.

    For reference, I'm just over 6'2" weigh 170-175lbs and buy 34" inseam pants; about as short as one would want to be riding an XL. As expected, there is not much stand over height; but it is sufficient. I've been riding a Vaya(60 cm)for 6 years and a Fargo(XL) for 5 years. The Cutthroat(XL) is replacing both of them and is stock aside from a zero offset seatpost and my preferred WTB saddle.

    Hope this helps others with their research.
