Additional Info This is my 'Winter bike' so I'm riding the Alloy version until April. I run a Large size frame with a 35mm stem to get the same reach as a medium size frame, but a longer wheelbase for more stability and better climbing. I have a custom XTR I-Spec front shifter controlling my Fox D.O.S.S. seat post.

    I don't see any info on the handlebar 'stache...is that a Fox pro tune, or is it a home-made custom piece?
