I think I read that the pivot only goes a few millimeters up and down so maybe a plastic (or carbon) plate could snap over and act as a mud guard. Fox might insist on making it see-through to show off all that kashima?

Test these out if possible ahead of time. I picked up a pair and the size felt too large than what a normal medium should.

Yes to both would be my guess. I'm interested to see what fork will match the 170 or 180mm rear travel.

Is there a reason the valves are next to each other? Seems that it would balance out better on opposite sides of the rim.

Overall I dig it (more so in a year when prices drop and we start seeing them as an option on mid-range bikes) but why three cranksets? Just stick to the 1400 which is super versatile with its spiderless capability.

Any updates on the US franchise thing they mentioned earlier this year?

I'm more interested in the XTR VPP frame than the drivetrain

From what I've heard this seems to be a hit or miss thing with riders. For me it's been a hit though you bring up a good point about chain wear.. It would be interesting to do a poll to get a larger sample size and maybe sort out which systems work best?

rear der: Sram X9 med clutch
cog: WTC 42
score: 3 (bad=1, so so=2, good=3)
notes: for me, this was worth the $100 having just purchased a new drivetrain and wanted a larger range but didn't want to scrap it all for X01 and then sort out wheel compatibility on top of that.

This looks like an amazingly fun bike. I can't believe I'm saying this but the HA might be too slack for me. 65 on a 160mm fork and if you want to bump the travel up to 180 that would make it about 64 degrees.

Yes for a Lyrik update. When I saw the new Nomad I thought maybe.. but its a Pike.

Thanks Vital MTB and Jenson USA! This will help with a set of Spank Spike wheels I've been eyeing and I'll be sure to post up a review after I've got some time on them.

Nice review, I was eyeing these rims before going another route. I'd also be curious to hear your thoughts on the Magic Marys.
