He's running a med frame for the freeride setup and a large for the DH. The shorter stem is likely to compensate for the longer reach.

John, our tester for this particular product, can definitely hold his own on a bike... even if he runs crazy high pressure compared to most.

Star-ratings take a lot of things into consideration. We called a spade a spade when it came to what we didn't like about the wheels and what we did like. And while we feel Loaded needs to be upfront with their product description, like we were, in the end the wheelset proved to be reliable, stiff (almost to a fault) and resilient even while running low pressures (under a known wheelset bruiser, for that matter). To me, that sounds like a "good" wheelset. Sure, it's not a class leader but it's also not a bad wheelset. Are there other options available at a similar price-point that may be a better option? That's for you to decide. We just laid-out the pros and cons to this particular set of wheels.
In regards to the XD Driver being sold separately and no 20mm or Boost option. While that's less than ideal, it doesn't relate to the performance of the wheelset, and it's something you'd know prior to purchasing.
Sorry, I just saw this message. I used "Aircraft Stripper" that I got from a local auto parts store. They make both a paint on "gel" and a spray on. I used a combination of both. Took me a good 6 or so hours... I'm thinking in the future, if I ever strip a bike again, I'll pay the $100 or so bucks it takes to get it chemically done at a powder coater. That way I won't have to worry about all the chemicals on me from doing it myself and it won't be media/sand/walnut blasted so all the tolerances will be good still.
If you plan on doing it yourself, gloves, a good mask or even respirator and long sleeves are a must.

Currently only the M/L size is available, with the XS/S and XL/XXL sizes "available at a later date."

This was meant to be a standalone test and not necessarily a direct comparison to the Minion and HRII. But, since you guys asked, as mentioned in the article, we found cornering traction to be similar to a Minion, even under hard cornering. It's interesting GeorgeWHayduke mentioned the Maxxis catalog rating the Aggressor as slower rolling than the DHF because that wasn't our experience. It was alluded to in the review that it's not the fastest rolling tire we've ridden and not the slowest. Perhaps we could have just said it doesn't roll as fast as a Cross Mark (which we did) but it's not quite as sluggish as a DHFHRII (which we were vague about). One point we did fail to mention and will address here is the climbing traction of the tire. The Aggressor replaced a HRII rear and DHF front, with previously having the bike setup with DHF's front and rear. We found the Aggressor to hold traction better on steep punch sections quite a bit better than either of those tires out back.

Good question! Here's what Deity sent me:
M4 x 0.7P x 8mm and they are dual sided for an allen, so you can unthread them from the back in the event that the pin is damaged. They also come with pre-applied Loctite and include an extra set of pins for back ups!

Excellent question. Let me reach out to both 6D and our tester to see if we can get you an answer.

We compared it to a 27.5x2.5 Minion DHF.

Our testing was done w/ closed cartridge forks as an additive to the oil in the fork lowers, not the damper oil.

Someone with "USA" in their own name and doesn't usually like American Flag designs? SMH...
