It is like heaving fox fork and RS shock...isn't the same thing? I use xtr mech with xo casette and works flawless. It is not my problem that shimano tooked a very long time to develope a partnership with mavic to provide a microspline casette.

I run xt 11 speed with a sram cassette. Works pretty good for me.

I have to say I'm more of a Pepsi fan. After all they were the ones who were indirectly responsible for Michael Jackson getting set on fire.

Dream build. Still getting a few
upgrades for up coming season. Race face turbineR-35 stem 32mm in anodized silver, silver headset spacers, kevlar brake hoses and anyways shortening all of the hoses to the right lenght. Also considering to ditch my DHX2 F-S + mrp progressive spring and get EXT Storia instead.

Those Mondrakers are really good looking frames.

I am going to save a picture of that mondraker in my mind for later.............Drool Whip

I had the Chance to buy a dune frame for super cheap and didn’t get it. I regret it all the time. Sexy looking rigs.

Can you explain why do you like it more?

I like the Scout more because:
- it's more compact (483mm reach vs. 460mm)
- it's more lively
- it wants you to pop off every small lip and root
- the 125mm travel feel more capable than the 140mm on the Foxy
- I do not worry at all when anything hits the frame

downsides:
- heavier
- does not climb as efficiently

The Foxy was a 2015 one. So first gen of the carbon frames, if I remember correctly. The rear end never felt great and I threw way too much money at that bike to try and make it feel better.
It's a super efficient and fast bike, that wants to be ridden fast and aggressively, but it did not feel at home on chunky terrain.
+ When pedalling hard I could watch the chain pull the back end to the right.

The Formula with an EXT Storia would be an italian dream combination.
Love the Gulf colour!
