9/10 for the Spec, nice paintjob!

I updated the Gambler with a 27.5 fork and front wheel.

Minor updates

9/10 always loved that Scott Gambler model. Great DH performance and still great fun to ride.

Here I leave my custom Pivot Phoenix 29 with custom vinyls. It took longer than expected to decide the colors but I like it

Gorgeous bike, well done. I don't have a DH bike to post just felt compelled to compliment your build and color choice.

Business up front party in the back aka fast rolling/control up front and fun/playful in the rear.

It's both 27.5, it is the angle of the picture.

I had it previously with 29 in the front but didn't liked it.

Who uses fast rolling tires up front?

A 29in wheel rolls better and maintains speed in rough better than 27.5

Agreed.

But on a 27.5 frame the front will rise too much, it forced me to run the frame in the high setting making the bike feel like Bender's Karpiel.

Depends on the frame.

My warden has a very short headtube combined with the long reach made the front end feel way to low. When I was running my 27.5 wheel up front I had 20mm of spacers under the stem and a 30mm rise bar with 170mm fork. When I went to mullet setup I have 10mm of spacers under the stem and fork is down to 160mm and the front end is at a comfortable spot for me.

9/10 just because I'm not a carbon guy. She is a beauty though!

Here is my 2013 Turner DHR that I've had for a couple seasons now. I just put on new brakes and rear shock along with new linkage bearings. Eventually I want to put a 27.5 fork and front wheel but I've spent enough on it for this year lol.
