 Very cool and that's with the King/823 combo?

Easton Havoc, E-13 wheels or I-9 to flow ex or Spank Subrosa

I will say that the 823 is bomb proof

 I'm only 6' tall and already run my enve dh bars on the nomad at 760. I ran them previously at 800/780 and they felt ridiculous its amazing what a difference in feel 2cm off each of the ends of the bars will do

 inch taller and cut my bars from 760 to 730 after several months, now regretting, maybe even want 780

 I don't think it is a good choice to a dh bike, I run 823 with maxxis ust tyres for 2 seasons and it was extremely frustrating. I once managed to destroy 3 new tires within one single day.... now run lighter rims and standard tyres = no weight penality and definately less issues with sealants,tyres etc..

 You can see by scale shot I'm not having any weight penalties,and the guy that built the bike used to race dh professionally and swears by this combo,your the first negative I've heard on this set up tbh. Was gonna go lighter but prefer bombproof on a dh plus the bike is light enough any way. Wink

 Maybe I had a bad luck, great bike though. I was riding v10 carbon for 2 seasons and couldn't be more happy about it. It really eats everything Smile Mine was about 15,6 kg so a bit heavier than yours but still light enought to pull it up when it was needed ! cheers Smile
