TY man! Sorry for the late reply.
Apart from a clapping noise on the back over irregular terrain - don't know if it's from the chain banging on the swingarm or the internal cable routing - zero technical issues so far.
IMO the Monarch Debonair shock doesn't keep up with the frame's potencial; a bit difficult to fine tune the compression speed to my liking.

Hey man, sorry I took so long to reply to your comment.
My only term of comparison is my previous Evil Uprising bike. I never rode a Pivot Mach 6 to give you a fundamented opinion on both. However one thing I can tell you: this Insurgent is a beast! I've been ridding it in Low position to have a more all rouder bike and it's super stiff, has huge traction and overall rides superbly well. Have plans for a Bike Park thash and give it a go with a slacker position. It seems it unleashes a helluva downhill monster!
There are loads of opinions and reviews on MTBR Forum, perhaps even comparative opinions on the Insurgent vs the Mach6. Check: http://forums.mtbr.com/evil-bikes/evil-insurgent-booyah-988996.html

So far so good. It's a self adhesive velcro tape from Tesa. It keeps the chain links clean and avoids any friction noise. It'll start to wear with the use and eventually come off with all the muck and water from winter rides. Easily replaceable.

Congrats on your awsome built. Was that you that posted the Kirk clearance photos on MTBR?
I'm waiting for an M/L frame to arrive with a Float X on. I considered going full Bos, but after I talked with Kevin (Evil Bikes owner) he convinced me to give the Float X a try - it'll have speciffic valve tuning and spacer for the frame's damping curve.

Niiice! Excelent weight!
This frame is awsome, but heavy as f*.Check mine out: http://www.vitalmtb.com/community/Nuno-Melo,7302/setup,20705
Not as nimb as yours, as I do some Enduro racing and Avalanches with it and got some sturdy Dh components. Got a pair of Ardents Exo by now; those should bring the weight down below 14kg

But do u think those scandium rims can cope with a 180lbs ex-dh racer that doesn't like to move away from harsh rock gardens? That's why I haven't made up my mind yet...

I'm planning on buying that same wheelset for my enduro bike. How're they holding up so far? Any problems with the hubs or rims? Thx
