Also compare this to other rich guy lifestyle sports, like golf or skiing, and it isn't so bad. It sucks, but it's pretty comparable on a year to year basis. Especially compared to riding or driving anything with a motor. If I ever hear...more

Woo, most people don't live in Truckee or Reno, so they actually have to drive their asses to the ski resort and often times pay for lodging and food in the process. Plus 99% of people get ski passes, which are expensive as shit. Yeah,...more

There are plenty of expander plugs that are removable after everything is tightened down, they're quite common on road bikes with carbon steerers that can't use star nuts. You'd need to buy one or befriend a roadie. =)

Hey Eugen! I have pretty long legs for 6' so it's no problem, my saddle height is 78.5cm from bb spindle center to top of saddle. I think I could even fit a 170mm post! Yes, I usually keep it in the low setting. I don't notice so much the head angle change, but the bb height change is noticable when climbing ledgy rocks or roots. I will sometimes switch to high if I am someplace with technical climbs. I love the yellow too! I miss having such a crazy bike.

This makes me extremely interested in something I previously didn't care about one tiny bit. Kudos to Ghost.

The 36 is stiffer and lighter than the BOS I had before, and the 10mm extra travel is nice, especially on this bike that already has a low BB. The Float X2 climb switch works better than the one on the Kirk, which always made such awful noises and had an "edgier" platform feel with a fragile, damage-prone lever. The X2 feels plusher at the beginning, both the X2 and the Kirk had good mid-stroke support. The x2 stays more consistent when it warms up, I had strange performance/temperature variations with the Kirk. I also had a few more warranty/reliability issues with BOS than I am used to.

I liked the BOS suspension quite a bit, when it came out I think it was quite ahead of the competition. The DeVille felt a bit plusher right in the initial stroke than this 36, and the BOS stuff seemed to have a wider adjustment range, but I feel I am able to make more subtle adjustments with the fox units. Overall I feel like I went from four-stars to four-and-a-half with the numerous small improvements with Fox.

Ah, regarding clearance: It's really close, about 1-2mm and I had to mod the mount a bit. No issues whatsoever at this point. I believe there are some changes to the shock mount on the 2017 models to give more room now that the Float X2 will be standard on the X-Team model.
