being 5'6 I like the low cockpit & have always had the stem slammed & run a low rise bar so that was not a particular concern for me, I just felt that a bike with such a long wheel base & slack head angle in standard form was let down by the original fox 34 150mm fork.
The other bonus of the 170mm fork is that I no longer (very rarely) have pedal strikes when climbing which was a bonus as the rear end of this bike seems to like running a lot of sag, at least %30

yes, it is slacker, I also have been running it now with a 170mm air spring for about a year. The head angle is 64 degrees & I strongly believe that this is what the bike should have come with.
I find absolutely no negatives, only positives having the bigger fork, it's fantastic

no, but I saw that Remi Absalon has a super deluxe on his Genius, so it fits a large size frame at least.

I have my bikes painted just by the local vehicle smash repairer. It's no different to painting a car. I prep them & tape up what I don't want painted & they do the rest
I didn't end up weighing the wheels on their own, I weighed them complete ie: with tyres, cassette, rotor etc. My rear wheel alone was 314grams lighter, front was only 86 grams lighter.

everything I changed was heavier that what I put on. All up I took 900grams off. Cranks were 250grams lighter, XTR cassette was 130grams lighter than sram etc etc. The lockout system was 150grams as well. I have never since the invent of suspension used a lockout, front or rear. It pedals beautifully, just like most bikes these days.

sorry guys, no way is that 90kph. I've done 88.1kph in a mtb race, can't pedal past 65kph & that was with a 44 tooth big ring. I have no doubt it was fast, just not that fast.
