Very nice. Just needs pikes or something a bit stiffer than those 34 and you're done!

Holy Crap though... I didn't realise Trump actually had supporters.
Everyone outside of the US has just been assuming he's a joke candidate.

Seated it feels more efficient that horst link, but not quite as efficient as VPP.
Standing and mashing on the pedals its very very firm - amazing efficiency - best bike I have ridden for standing climbing/peddling -if you are a rider who puts in a turn in at every opportunity when descending, the platform makes this bike very fast.

Descending it feels more like 140mm travel, very plush, the only time you realise you've only got 120mm is on repetitive hits like a rock garder.

However the best thing about this bike is the insane shock pressure - you need to run about 100psi more than most bikes - it makes it unbelievably grippy on climbs and poppy off features.

Its a worty winner in my opinion.

Cheers.
Going to stick with my Mark1 - I prefer the reach:seat tube ratio than the new one. i have a -1 angleset in mine, so the HA is identical, but the mark1 feels a bit more stable at high speed.

The mk2 feels more nimble in the tight turns though.

One thing for sure is if you get a C version with the basic fox shock, you need to get rid of it - the shock is aweful - a Cane creek or Monarch would be a must in my opinion. It feels way too linear and just blows through the travel...

But I did really enjoy it - super fun. I am stuck between sizes now though with the MK2 where as the old XL is a perfect fit...

Can I ask how tall you are and what inseam? I'm 6'2 36" inseam and currently ride an XL 5010 v1, but the XL v2's reach would be too big for me, which means I'd go for a L v2. However the seatpost is the 2" shorter. How do you find it?

Yea man, my next bike (to replace my current V1 5010!!!)
The only possible way to make that better is XTR Trail brakes and ditch that specialized bottle cage!!!!

Big fan of all your choices though. I'd have it!!!!
