It's not so much that as if your bike turns up and you need to prove it's yours then you say 'check in the seat tube, my name's in there'.

6 is genius. For #3 you might want to do a couple wraps of black electrical tape too.
So for now it looks like a standard V10 front triangle with an alloy rear end. I hope that if this goes to production they update the XXL sizing. The fact that Peat and Minnaar (both around 6'3") need a special headset to get the length they need from an XXL maybe these bikes need to be longer? Either way it'll be cool to see how this plays out. Horses for courses for sure.
Interesting. What about running Huck Norris with EXO tires for just-less-than-DH-casing level protection?
Two days ago you said the Norco Range had unrefined looking cable ports. Today this bikes' ports look almost the same but they're "well-executed".
No belt loops?
That's really cool. Will there be extra length options for jerseys too?
Came here to say this. Full custom means full custom which means custom sizing. Otherwise we're just picking colors.
Wow I had one of those original M.U.L.E.s
A revised 130mm Smuggler would do the trick.
Twice this week I saw the same kid on a mini-bike with orange fenders.

This is going to sound weird, but wait for it. Where's the 29er front, 650b+ rear DH bike?
I think this would be awesome.
Road to 7th is clear. Still lots of snow on the trail for the first bit. Lots of standing water especially on Leppard and on down. Cleared what I could.
You definitely should. I'm 220 lbs. I had an Enduro 29 comp that came quite light Traverse rims and a house brand Hilo rear hub. The hub died within a few months and the rims not soon after. I upgraded to Hope Pro 2 hubs and the previous version of Stans Flow rims. Huge improvement but I wrecked those too and switched to Derby carbon rims, which I'm still running 3 years later. Bigger riders on bigger wheels = a lot of leverage. I don't know much about the Flow MK3 but if they'll do the trick it's a cost-effective option for sure.

Anyone distributing 9point8 in Canada? Or is direct the only way to buy one?
They're made in Ontario and priced in $CAD. Why would you want a distributor?

On a side note - there seems to be a invasion of endurobros on cypress lately. All good with me but for FFS why all the new braiding on many of the trails?
How do you know it was the Endurobros doing the braiding?
No Quarter to the first Executioner intersection then down Dreamweaver. All good.
It's much harder than Old Buck. More like No Quarter in terms of difficulty. I usually go up Eagle Lake Rd then past the transformer station. You can take it all the way to the upper works yard so you can connect with SGS or Meat Sweats. Or all the way to the ski hill. Once you get to Slippery Canoe you're past the worst of it. It's definitely hard but nowhere near as tedious as the road.
I rode one last summer. I thought it was interesting. It felt more like a toy than a really sophisticated high end mountain bike. It seemed like the mechanism that figures out when to deliver the power assist never quite knew what to do on technical terrain where you're quickly ratcheting pedals and on/off the pedals a lot. For me that imprecision was a huge dealbreaker. The year before I tried a similar Lapierre e-bike. The Levo is much better than that. Doubtless this technology will continue to improve.
It was cool to try it. But it's not something I'm interested in.
