    Thanks fellas. I was very impressed that it weight in at 23# pedals included. I wasn't looking at light specific parts and I think it is a very decent weight. It rolls so nice. I'm in love. LOL!!!

    It is a KMC chain but not the 710 here's a link to the chain. This a bit heavier but sturdier chain. Not that there would be any problems with the 710 but I couldn't find the black/white color combination on that one.

    I really like the way it looks and once I rode it I was like wow. Feels so fast compared to my RH. Maybe it is in my head but the bike responds so much better to everything. Jumping is not as easy as with the RH the TT is longer but it feels just right. Definately a lot more nimble than the RH. Even for a 29er it handles awesome.

    Maybe try shortening the stem by 20mm or so. Should give you extra front leverage without cramping you up too much.

    Well I was referring to the TT on the RH is actually longer than the stumpy so that's weird. Wheelbase on the stumpy is a tiny larger. Maybe the fact that this is a more race oriented bike makes the dif. But I feel very comfortable on the bike. (I have a large torso)Way better than the RH. Not back pain issues. I actually got fitted after I finished the build. I just rode it for 7-8 miles yesterday so tomorrow I'm taking her out for at least 15 miles. After that I should have a better idea.

    Yeah, I went and compared the two geo's after your previous comment. Strange that the geo's actually point to the RH being easier to chuck around (shorter chainstays as well), although I couldn't find trail measurements. Steeper HA on the SJ suggests lower trail, so maybe that's the difference?

    Did you get fitted for the RH as well, or make the necessary adjustments to match the SJ?

    Also frame weights might contribute.
