Knowing trek they will make it a 29er. And nope. Maybe they'll go 27.5 rear 29 front? Who knows what they are thinking anymore.

Lol. Prolly 27.5 all around. If the 951 Evo does well this race season, even *cough KHS *cough; the big bosses will start considering it. Hell the Foat 40 has a sik fidee bee version. Youre right, who knows.

There should be 5 on the drive side. 1 on the top of the CS, 1 on the bottom of the CS, 1 on the upright, 1 on the inside of the SS (long piece that runs the length of the SS), and 1 on the outside of the SS. On the non-drive side, there should be 2. 1 on the bottom of the CS, and 1 on the outside of the SS. 7 total.

I'm wondering if anyone around 200lbs with the 2013 has dialed in a solid base tune with the stock fox shock, and if so please post it up.

I've been running mine in 8.5' mode with a #450 spring and find it jumps nose heavy. I know the answer to that is usually slow down rebound but I don't think I can run it any slower. I'm running 5 clicks from full slow right now and think the shock would start packing up for sure if I slowed it down anymore. I've been out in the bike park 5 days in a row trying to get it dialed but just can't get it to feel right. I'm actually trying to speed up my fork rebound now to see if that will compensate.

Any base tunes along with, rider weight, spring rate, and travel setting with the stock RC4 and I would be interested to hear.

^ Your spring rate is even soft imo. Although Im running a ccdb, Im about 170 lbs kitted and I run 500-550 springs in 8.5" mode. That gives me a sag range of roughly 24-28ish percent. That said, you shouldnt be getting bucked or nose heavy on jumps with that soft of a spring. How much sag do you have with that 450?

Getting bucked on jumps is usually a result of your technique rather than the bikes setup. That said, you should probably look into getting a 500# spring.

I'm in the same sag range with a #450. Santa Cruz website actually recommends a #400/450 for my weight in 8.5' mode and I chose to run a it on the stiffer side of things.

I'm starting to think it is just my technique and I just have to adapt to the new bike. Rode a Session last year and it just jumped different. I find with the v10 I need to compress my suspension a lot more on takeoff to avoid coming off nose heavy.
