Very nice! I wish I could get a fox version.

Leaning towards a Tues this year. As for carbon rims, that'd impact my willingness to ride out a flat from Garbo. I'll stick to bomb proof 570s.

Carbon Tues with Fox Factory stuff… dooooooo it.

$7,099CAD on sale isn't that bad for the CF Pro when you think about it. Sold out though. Or you a frame guy?

Has anyone rode the new fox x2 air shock? I'm interested in purchasing one so I'm curious if anyone could let me know their experience's n pro/cons.

Also I'm looking to upgrade from my intense frame in the future, around summer time.
Heres a little list of info about what i like lol. One of the most important things is it need's to be able to handle sever impacts, in the ballpark of 8" of travel, really good warrenty (lol), aluminum is fine.
I am just clueless with all the new tech these day's so I'd love some help. Thanks

Wish they had a frame-only option! Their new stock is arriving in April. We'll see how I feel then :)

Ahh shit, didn't realize they don't sell frames. The new gun metal or whatever they are calling it is pretty sweet looking (online at least). Looks like good value on the 2017 stuff again.

Freedom of contract. We sell them guns that kill them; they sell us drugs that kill us.

I have a 2015 wilson and upgraded to the fox x2 air shock. I sent it in and had all the recall work done (even though I never had any issues with it whatsoever ). I love it. It just works and I don't even notice it which I think is a good thing. I race and it performes awesome. Garbo to village whistler laps and it feels consistent the whole descent. I'm around 220 ish all geared up so I'm not exactly a light guy and the shock takes my hack riding without an issue. I highly recommend it. It just works.

As far as a bike. I love my Wilson. It loves to go fast. I had a 26" wilson and loved it too. But the new 27.5 is even better. It also takes my hack riding without an issue hahaha. You can't really beat Devinci's lifetime frame warranty either. I recommend trying a few different bikes though. You have to find a bike that suits you and fits you properly.

So I have started to rebuild my pixie blue Cove STD on a budget.

Bummer that we can no longer post pics straight from our phones.

Spec list is old-school:

Mrz 888 RC with 170mm of plushness. This one looks and feels brandnew.

Gustav M brakes with 210 discs.

Singletrack rims with Maxxis rubber.

9speed SLX rear derailleur. Long cage but Shadow and really cheap.

Truvativ Holzfeller cranks with Straitline Defacto.

Holzfeller stem with RF Atlas.

Parts currently missing: Grips, shifter cable and shifter only.

Just finished the build. Pack my gear and head down to Bavaria for the weekend to ride at Bischofsmais. So excited.
