Additional Info I have built this new bike one week ago. Now I have rode 160km by this beauty and I can say I love it. This XL-size frame fit me perfectly and it is very comfortable for long distance trail ride (I am 186cm). I like this 140mm fork with -2⁰ angleset because it is making my bike slacker (66⁰ HA) and for my mind this is optimum fork specs for this frame. By this fork setup it is also working great for difficult trails and downhill sections. Don't put any longer travel fork because it change geometry too much. My chainstay setup for sliding dropouts is 425mm because there is same in my other bike. I feel this bike is agile and fast however when there is very much reach (510).
