Slowest Build ever... well okay, I finished it a week ago, but still slow AF. I blame work... and riding bikes... and having to build up my old bike to get it ready for sale.

It's pretty fun, but very different from my last bike.  I'm finding that being aggressive and getting really forward helps a lot.

Yes! I've been trying to figure out what was wrong with that junction and that is exactly it

Good value for a boutique brand, undercuts the Hightower equivalent by at least 10%

You crazy, that seattube/toptube junction looks fine.

The bike looks great with a coil, especially in the raw.

Rumours are:

160mm travel called the Titan.

Be nice, IMO they had fallen behind design wise.

Chatted with Privateer , pre-orders next month and frames some time spring 2020. They will work with a coil-over, really like the design and price. Just not sure if I,m willing to wait 6 mths or so for a frame.

Smart play by Ibis, that Ripmo AF geo looks nice and the value on the DVO + SLX7100 build is pretty damn good. +$100 for new Jade coil with climb switch is awesome. Hope they sell a bunch.
