Very nice! I noticed your upper slider positioning tho.... at bottom-out in the largest cog it'll rub. Maybe not a prob for you, i'm just a nitpicky mechanic. Still, mad props on your beautiful ride. I want a Ti spring REALLY bad but it's super hard to justify...... even to an MTBing GF

First Look: New Bontrager Direct Mount DH Stem, 3.8'' Wide Tire, and Tubeless Floor Pump
I agree this is a wonderful product concept. I really like the ghetto idea, but I'd adapt it to exclude the pump. Just use my pack pump to put my unflat tire @ 60psi or so, plug the two tires together, open the valve, and be done. I'd want the largest reasonable diameter tubing and I'd have to pack stan's (and maybe a spare tube just in case), but eh, I guess that's just me. Only thought of as I work in a shop and do tubeless setups all the freeking time, but all my personal bikes are tubed..... and I generally shuttle or lift anyway

First Look: Giant Reign and Glory 27.5
Aluxx SL is some pretty good stuff.... I could be wrong but I believe its 6013, a VERY ideal material, much more so than one would think. http://www.alcoa.com/mill_products/catalog/pdf/alloy6013techsheet.pdf

Nice catch! Very partial to konas personally, but if I had it to spend, I'm going for the glory.

Pit Stop: Enduro World Series Round 5 - Winter Park
There are far more important aspects of a frame than just suspension layout. There are plenty of single pivot bikes that absolutely rock because of their geo and leverage/shock tunes. Focus too much on axle path (or any other aspect) and you could quite easily sketch out a dog.
