    Question about your XT cranks - are those boost? If not, how are you getting the 55mm chainline? BB spacers or spindle spacers?

    These are the Boost XT Cranks with an Absolute Black 30T oval ring. I dont think I'm quite at the 55mm chainline specified for the Pistol but it clears the chainstays and shifts great.

    Holy clydesdale! dude how tall are you? I looked at the photos for so long wondering why someone was running 27.5" wheels on a Trail Pistol.

    Curious- What is the HT length on that frame? Considering ordering one myself.
    Looks absolutely aswesome BTW.

    It has a 180mm headtube. This is a solid size larger than their standard XL in every dimension and I'm sure Matt and Will can work with you to get it fitting properly.

    Cool.Just trying to get a perspective as I was looking at an XL build which uses a 160mm HT. Did they elongate the CS length for that XXL Build as well?

    I didnt ask them to as that would change the leverage ratio and travel. I was a little worried about it since I've had problems keeping the front end down when climbing on other bikes in the past. It really seems like the forward geometry of the long reach and steep STA work to keep the front end planted on climbs whereas more traditional bikes might need longer stays for the same effect.
