Looks good dude.

Still the best all-round bike on the market IMO.

for some reason every time I see the naked n/w rings I think "that thur chain's gonna fall off"

prefer the look of the top-only w/ bash guides myself.

Call the store you ordered through! Bikes get delivered all the time but to whom and when depends on when they were ordered.

I got a large. It's been great so far. I didn't really think that it could be much different than the 2013 version I had. Where the 2013 is a great bike, this one is a leap forward.

Are you planning on a 134 for yourself, or the 153?

i,m gonna shot for the 134 as well i,m on a Entourage at the moment and love the hell out of it so i,m gonna lighten it up a bit and get the 134 , don,t really see the need for 2 bikes with similar travel suspension wise .

actually your 2013 has the suspension set-up i,m planing for my Entourage air shock in the back and a switch up front .

Just picked this one up in Blaine last week. Coming from 3 seasons on a Stumpjumper, so the climbing definitely feels slower, but we put the downhill capabilities to the test on Cypress this weekend and she performed like a champ! Enough that I'm considering selling my Session and riding this in the park for the few days I make it up each year.

I haven't weighed it, but it feels pretty light. Not sure about the tires, they were sliding all over the place on DRY rock, AND I wrecked the derailleur when a stick jammed in it, so I have a little bit of work to do, but overall very impressed and can't wait to get back to Vancouver and get back out!

If anyone would like to help with the photos, please feel free.
