Mezza is cheaper, lasts longer and more grip for the win.

But it looks likea DHF/ Butcher

LOOK! Yet another SC frame with Fox suspension, AXS parts, and Maxxis tires. How unique...i mean ubiquitous. Dead Horse

Just built it yesterday, snapped a couple of night pics. Custom decals ordered for the downtube because the peachy orange does NOT match the Fox orange. And of course, Fox kashima does not match either as expected. Madder

Weighs in at a pubic hair over 34lbs.

I don’t like stickers. I peel them off from everything.

Especially shampoo bottles. I can’t have shampoo bottle in shower without peeling off all labels for that clean look. Same for all forks. No stickers.

So what do you read in the bathroom when you don't have your phone with you?

People go to the bathroom without their phone?

How do you find the compound hardness compares to Maxxis? The enduro Mazza looks quite good at 1160g for a 27.5x2.4.

I went from Mazza Enduro to Assegai DH last year, and on anything except dry and loose, I found the Mazza just as grippy.
It's a really good allrounder for me.
Had Mazza front and Martello rear, good tire combo for mostly hardpack, rocks and roots, with quite decent performance in the wet.
Martello is pretty close to Aggressor in performance, but I found it a little better in the wet.
Neither is as good as the aforementioned Maxxis tires in loose and dry conditions in my experience, but overall better for my conditions.
They also roll a lot faster.

Sounds promising!
I decided in the end that I'll wear my way through the DH DHFs, a MM, a DH Assegai, and a e13 DH tyre I have in the workshop before buying more tyres.

At that point it'll be either the Mazzas if they're in stock anywhere, or a pair of DD DHR2s in Maxxterra back, Maxxgrip front.

Who makes the benchmark strongest 32h 27.5" rims out there? My nephew broke the stock rear wheel on his Status 160 and I'm thinking about lacing him up something better.

i feel like it's DT. a friend of mine has a stock E1900 wheelset that has at least 10k miles on it and he's beat the absolute shit out of them, a few broken spokes but the wheel is still rolling. I imagine one of the stronger FR rims would perform similarly.

Strongest is fortus 30 afaik (not the sc version), quite heavy though
