It's definitely a 'second bike' kind of bike. Just something different, lively, and fun in places my big bike isn't (but also not as fun in places my big bike is) 

6 feet. Size large. Top tube is just 620mm. Banshee says I could even be a medium, but that is a seated tt length of 592mm!

Just built up a Phantom v3 in raw. I struggled with the routing a bit, then realized taking the shock out makes it way easier. Also route the cables before installing the fork.  

Have both dropouts, running the short ones. Feels nicely balanced, but looking forward to trying the longer ones too. Seated, the cockpit is cramped. Maybe something I just need to get used to.  I tried a 55m stem instead of the 40mm stem, but that sucked. Now going to try a smaller fork 120mm vs the 140mm, and also try a riser bar rolled forward a bit.

The magic of this bike is it so adjustable. There just isn't one thing for everyone. 

Oh, and I get asked about weight lots with it. 8lb frame. My complete is right at 30 lbs with pedals, magic mary, hans dampf tires no inserts.

Its a journey of acceptance. Right now I feel like if you ride an e-bike, you need a good reason like being old. I imagine sometime soon it will be reason enough to own one because they are a pile of fun. I'm not there yet, but see it coming...

Running these for a couple months. Spot on review, and thanks for the tip on the pad compatibility! One tip of my own: For a SRAM shifter/TRP brake matchmaker, buy the left side one for the rear shifter. The proper right side matchmaker mounts way to far inwards.

Does it manual reasonably well? More or the same effort to lift the front wheel (I would assume more given weight-forward position)? Does this make is more exaggerated to lift and hop at slower speeds? Thanks!

Great story. I would love to see a "weareone" wheel upgrade option from local shops. Its the best upgrade you can do to your bike, by far. Let's support these guys.

If they could put a waterproof wrapper over the foam then we could use less sealant and likely make it more durable. I like the idea, but I get more flats from sidewall cuts than anything else. Still less flats (and less wrecked tires) is awesome.

What did you settle on for sag? did you experiment?

@Tim Coleman - Can you tell me anything about the black link you have on your Patrol? Mine is blue. Is yours special?
