Just mounted up some new aluminum Spinergy's up to the BMC. I don't notice a massive difference with the fiber spokes, but that might be a good thing right? They're strong, that's for sure. I cased a root on a root-to-root pull and with 25psi in the rear, the wheel was fine. Left a mark from the tire on the bead but not even a wobble.

I bought these before the new GX Max stuff came out, but I'm pretty sure it's just an aluminum GX wheel on a 44 hub. Side note...I waited 5.5 months for these wheels. I bought them right before the new hubs came out (needed microspline) so I had to wait. I can't say "worth the wait!" at almost 6 months, but still a very durable, light, and inexpensive wheelset.

Thanks dude Salute

I'm super pleased with this one - first crack at a 27.5 and she's a stunner

Holy crap that looks amazing. SP isn't for me, but god damn they look clean. You've done a great job with this one.

Thanks man Salute

Out of interest, why is it you wouldn't consider single pivot for you?

That's not a loaded question, just wondering what your thought process is

VERY NICE! Very capable looking bike there.
I like a lot or reach too. 6ft and ride SJ XL/S5 with 470 & 656 stack
Curious about the equipment/components; Those Magura rotors on there? 200 & 180&
I was going to ask about the drivetrain, but I just saw on the list you have the Shimano SLX, nice.

Best question, how does it ride!

Thanks man!

They're Shimano Ice tech rotors I believe. 180 and 203.

Drivetrain is Shimano SLX and the customer went with the smaller 10-45 cassette. We were going to run the new short cage XT mech - but it wasn't available in time for the build.

I had a lap on the bike and it was super fun. Small wheels and tonnes of standover makes it super easy to throw around, I liked it a lot.

Quick question. Do yeti sizes run a tad bigger? I have heard that several times.

My medium sized yeti fits perfectly.

How tall are you?

She’s a beauty!! Did you weigh the frame on its own with/without shock?

just being able to tune the suspension to make it work how you want. Leverage curves and tuning the anti squat are the main reasons.

Are leverage curves and anti squat tuned by suspension ? I think every design have their own behaviour, not sure if it is suspension (shock) matter
