    It has been 2 years since the bike was build and riding all kinds of trails and terrain with ZERO issues or parts failure.

    I'm 6' tall 250lbs fully geared ( a bit gordo ) and used to be faster . If you know So-Cal trails. I ride a wide range, from off the 101fwy trails to Malibu,OC trails, BigBear ...etc.

    Frame : Evil Insurgent
    Fork : RockShox Pike 160mm
    Wheels : LightBicycle 38mm Enduro on DT hubs / DT champion spokes 4x rear 3x front.
    RaceFace NextSL cranks

    Enduro RWC ceramic bearing BB
    Hope M4 brakes
    Rockshox Reverb seatpost
    SRAM XX1 drive train
    LooK or HT ME03 Ti pedals
    Ti and aluminum bolts

    Great weight for the Insurgent. Is this the 27.5" model? My Nephew is racing Enduro's on this bike and loves it.
    You don't see many 4X wheel builds.
    The only thing I would keep an eye on is the cranks at your weight, I have two years on a set of Next SL's and have been trouble free, but I weigh almost 100 lbs. less than you do.
    Nice job.

    Dude are you calling me fat , mama says I am fluffy not fat.

    I know these cranks aren't design for AM or En. but I've been riding for a long time now and became pretty good measuring reward Vs pain. I'm not worried or do think the carbon fiber arms will fail. the bond agent they use to glue it onto the BB axle may come apart, but that would be under extreme condition. Like hitting a big drop to flat landing or casing a big double jump. ( which did happened to me long ago with a older CF crank design )

    However, I know my riding style. I am not a bruiser and coming from a BMX background , I'm kind of light on equipment. And on top of that, I do my own maintenance on my bikes ( all the time) and check all parts for fatigue, damage or other signs something maybe wrong. And like the saying goes " The older I get the faster I was".

    Yeah, its a 27.5" of pure fun. luv this bike, but may be time to work on another build.

    Cheers

    Nice example of how a full travel bike does not need to be a 33 pounds beast!

    My 27.5 150/150 Ibis HD3 in its trimmest set up is 24 pounds and change, despite the heavy Pike dual. Lightest trim is a push: 160 pounds and I can get away with VERY light wheels, 280 grams + Nobby Nic 2.25 only works to go around the park (although I do tons of stairs with them). My standard trail set up, DT Swiss XMC 1200 and NN 2.35 tires takes the bike at 25 pounds.
