Feels pretty good man. I want my shock pump to stop sucking so I can really pump up the rear shock.

But otherwise pretty good. Maybe a taller bar but I just like really high bars lol

how are you going to compensate when the chain stretches and gets all sloppy?

The pivot is directly around the bottom bracket so that won't happen.

Half links tend to stretch more then normal links as well

Im running 120mm up front so its a pretty even setup.
