Pretty sure any reader would know that’s incorrect. Why not just be stoked on a rad looking DH bike?

Did this set up a while back without issue, but you have to be willing to accept a shorter 448mm reach with 160 29'r up front.
The EXO 2.6's are decent for less aggressive trail riding, but squirm around too much for my taste. DD or at least EXO + with inserts would help & give a much more stable feel for what this bike is built for.

Love those trails! Lance (and the bike) make some of those moves look way easier than they are in person!

Sorry was distracted by the Bronze Nicolai G1 wink Nice dropper to. 3rd year on my 160 Revive without issue. Worth the extra cash initially to get the best feeling dropper out there that will last even in mud and snow each year.

I could live with 2 weeks. In hindsight, I should have just shipped it to Yeti instead. Would definitely be riding it already if I did so.

Was actually swapping to a dh set up like this until I noticed the rear triangle cracked in the process and the frame linkages and bearings destroyed as result. Month later and still waiting on my replacement frame under warranty. Lifetime warranty is only as good as the shop that can manage to get it done for you under such strain due to the LBS Covid Bike Rage! And to make matters worse, the Yeti rep already seen the pics and said it was a layup issue but still needed to go thru the LBS to process the warranty claim. UUUUUGGGHHH!!! My friend recently broke his IBIS before mine and had his replacement rear triangle the same week. Soooo...frustrating, especially being minutes from a bike park! Yes 1st world problems, but problems none the less wink

Pro Mech Tip. Buy a small amount of velcro (high adhesive) from lowes. It gives you a decent amount for $10 or even more for $20. Then cut a small strip of the soft side of the velcro and place it on each bottom end of the fin that touches the caliper. This allows it to move freely while keeping the pads rattle free. It's a night and day difference without this on the trail. Please note, that you will then be plagued with noticing chain slap instead. electrical tape or mastic tape first then the high adhesive soft portion of the velcro placed on top of that (to make removal easy if needed) on the chain and seat stays will make the bike pretty darn silent. I spend the extra $10 bucks and went for the larger amount of the 2" wide velcro in the hardware isle of Lowes. Lastly, the unused plastic side of the velcro can be used in the same way as the soft side for chainslap, but on the downtube for protection against chairlifts, pickup beds, etc where the area behind the fork crown gets rubbed on. Again, use electrical tape or like barrier between it and the frame since the adhesive backing is super strong.

Hope that helps everyone!
