How does this ride? Interested in how you’ve set this up

It's not that different from my old Nomad V4 - it's a touch longer front and rear, the suspension is a bit more active and better on bottom outs.
I've set it up the same way as the Nomad - ~22-23% rear sag, 17-20% sag upfront.
I'm using 27.5 Zeb with 190 mm of travel to keep the original geometry.

In short, it rides well, very similar to the Nomad from five years ago, but manages its 150 mm of suspension just a bit better than the Nomad its 170...

150/190 sounds like a hoot!!

Been a while since I've made a post here but do enjoy lurking at all the bikes. I'll throw mine into the mix a fresh Forbidden Druid build

Nice Druid ⬆️

I’m so close to being done this build from yesterday.
2023 RS Ulti Coil coming next week and a longer brake hose.

Sweet whip, envious of that. Can't wait for them to drop these as framesets, one day...

I've really been enjoying those pedals as well but did manage to bend a spindle pretty quickly, hoping that doesn't repeat!

Finished up my Arrival build. Such a fun bike. Thing rips. Bike pedals amazing. Front brake pads need replacement. I kind of went full enduro for this one per we have lots of chunky rock gardens on the central coast.

Zeb 170 w/ charger 3 damper
XTR Cranks w/ XT cassette and chain
TRP DHR EVO Brakes
Union w/ I9 Hydras
Exo + DHF/DHR2 w/ Tannus inserts
AXS X01 derailleur and shifter
EXT Storia w/ 650 spring (200 lbs)
One up 210 post (bottomed out, perfect for me at 5'11" w/ 32" inseam)
Fabric scoop saddle
Ride Wrap gloss kit to frame and fork
36.8 lbs with pedals
Waiting on:
Rest of parts to chainguide, Slik Graphics chrome decals for wheels and fork, Deity speedway chrome bars
