This would be fairly amazing if it were true

"GeoAdjust headset:
Quickly adjust reach and wheelbase by 10 mm by using a headset cup flipchip system. Drop the fork, flip the chips around, and you're done."

It sounds like that caps could be flipped without special instrument which means they are loose - so they will be a source of creaking sound. Did i miss something?

Headsets are also loose and can be a source of creaking... until you tighten the compression bolt

they are a tight fit, not sloppy at all. I rode at the bike park this summer, all over the rooty and rocks east coast and no creaks. grease them up and torque them down no creaks.

9/10 would def. be a 10/10 but that stem just doesn't do it for me. maybe an apex or a raceface?

7/10 tires, fender, seat and computer on top tube all need to go. Then maybe an 8/10

Agreed. Also the seat post looks awkwardly high, which has me thinking Mars must be a very long legged human as the seat tubes are known to be high on Slash's. I do like the frame color.

Maybe he needs extra height for leverage to get to mars

37" inside leg Frown

I also like to lord it over everyone else on the trail by being a couple of inches higher whilst climbing. Helps with the Strava stats
