Maybe this will help someone regarding the bottle-discussion. I have a P2 frame that lacks a lot of parts so havn't tested if the piggyback touches the bottle or not. But with the cage (made by Giant) as low as possible this is how it looks with a 500ml rie:sel and a 610ml Camelbak Podium. Both can by moved a bit further up.

looks nice-- have you had a chance to check if the the piggy back hits the bottom of the bottle as the shock compresses?

It looks like they will, with the cage moved up maybe not. A 600ml bottle should fit in a P2, I've seen people fit them

I am almost certain it will hit the piggyback, I hope I am wrong though...

I can confirm 600ml bottle (zipvit or named) will fit on P2 with syncros bottle holder with minor modification.
I superglued 5mm hard foam ( could also be wood or plastic) on the bottom of the holder (where bottle sits) to give it enough clearence.

There are no issues with bottle faling out or anything...

What brake pads come with the MT5's? did you need to upgrade them?

Pretty sure they come with the performance pads as standard.. can't comment what they are like though.... Mine wont be here until May (I hope it's not delayed)
Cheers, I was hoping that. Mine not due to until May as well. Just noticed that the price has gone up on the website to £3023, not a big increase but an increase.

Price has increased again by looks of it

To be expected I think, with the demand on shipping prices for getting things out of asia have skyrocketed.
