Additional Info

I've wanted a slayer for several years and picked up this frame on a good deal. Coil front and rear. Shockcraft tuned the fork and it's amazing. 60 lb spring is stiff, but good. 55 is maybe just too soft-and there is some variance of course in accurate weights. She's not light...but it's fun! It's a little smaller fit than my last bike a whole lot of fun. The DH fork option is super cool too. Only 6-7 rides on it so far, but pretty happy with the experience so far. 

Favourite component is the Switchgrade to tilt my seat up and down. 

Favourite component to look at is Straitline stem. I have a lot of them and I love them.

Running 25 psi front 29er, 30 rear with cushcore emtb 27.5. No idea on the weight
