Some minor updates.. New decals for the Fox Float and wheelset (Matt), Canfield Crampon Ultimate pedals, Custom lower part of MRP G3, XV Can for CCDB Air, Gold KMC Gold x10SL chain Some minor updates.. New decals for the Fox Float and wheelset (Matt), Canfield Crampon Ultimate pedals, XV Can for CCDB Air, Formula rear 203mm rotor.. 
New XV Extra Volume (Just like me ) air can for my CCDB Air. Having more air volume it should provide a more linear (less progressive) air spring which means I can have more H.S.C while still allowing full travel of the bike....Looking forward to trying it out. Just an update on my Mrp G3. I decided to add a bit more purple colour to the V10 Lovely and thin Canfield Crampon Ultimate pedals. Wanted to add abit more purple to the V10c and a great match with the CK BB Santa Cruz v10.5 carbon Medium with 2014 Fox 40 Air Float RC2 Santa Cruz v10.5 carbon Medium Enve DH rims with Chris King hub.

    Weighs less than any trail bike I've ever had, carbon or not.

    Love it..I have it on both my bikes. IMO best Air shock on the market. Takes time to dial in the setting but totally worth it. Great info on there (Cane Creek) web site too.
    For sure its not as plush as a spring shock but its pretty dam close plus its lighter too.
    I have it filled with Nitrogen air too which helps it on those long descends. Keeps it plush and supple.

    Super happy about this build.
    Couldn't believe I got under 30lbs/13.5kg but I guess, lots of help with the new Fox 40 Float RC2
