Voila
I like the pink, if I were you I would even try to get pink evil stickers, would look mint

I see by the seat post clamp & grips that you’ve already owned the pink. Wise choice.

new optics on my hotlist. Looks like a great bike for my local trails, mostly chill but totally capable for bc trips.

Yeah, a little laterally stiffer and a bit more supple off the top. Plus... kashima. Mmhmm
The brakes have changed since the video as well. TRP GSpec DH with 200mm rotors F and R.

Awesome. This bike is at the top of my want list. Did you have any other considerations before you bought the optic? Reasons for the optic over others?

One of my buddies thinks 125mm rear won’t be enough for some riding spots?!

I don't think it is just about the mm travel. A lot of bike capability gets down to frame, fork and wheel stiffness and geometry. The one place where inches of travel counts most is super high speed or big drops (which is also super high speed). If you were riding this one at whistler bike park and the group you were with were all on DH bikes, you'd be having trouble keeping up probably.
Most of the riding I do is slower, steeper and more technical (north shore etc). I can ride it just as well on a burly hardtail as the speeds are comparatively slow and my hardtail holds a line well. From what I see about the optic, it is definitely not a enduro bike with the pike up front but that being said, you could take it on all the same trails as the range, just slower.
