 Sick bike man!
I picked up the purple edition a couple months ago.

Are you having any issues with creaking? Mine has a mean creak that keeps coming back

 Nice, you'll love it! Mine has had a couple of creaks. The first was in the headset, and it was solved by tightening the top cap compression screw. The other creak was in my bottom bracket, but I ended up bending my cranks before I fixed that issue so I can't help you there. I did take it in to get a checkup a few months in just to make sure everything was good and that solved some creaks, although my cranks were installed incorrectly from the factory and the bike shop needed to saw them off. Hopefully this didn't scare you, it's all been worth it in the end, and never be afraid to ask your lbs

 @thook: yeah I already love it lol.

I actually just took it to their USA headquarters this morning and we found the creak/clunk. The rivets in my gx derailleur were backing out. New derailleur on the way.

And nah, it doesn't scare me. I work on all of my stuff haha just needed a second pair of eyes on it to find the issue.

I have a wheelset I'm building up that should be done by next week so I'm stoked for that!

 I got a new wheelset as well, definitely worth it. What are you building up?

 @thook: what did you get?

I have purple Profile Elites hubs. They hooked it up. Still deciding on rims. I can get sun ringle for damn cheap but I'm thinking maybe some easton arc 30's

 @joalst: I got i9s, love em. Since you've already gone with the profiles don't skimp out on the rims, but I don't know much about either rim or your financial situation. Your bike came with spank wheels right? Could you lace your hubs to those hoops?

 @thook:
Niiiiice. I had a custom torch enduro wheelset on my last bike. Loved those wheels. I just didn't like being stuck with proprietary spokes.

Well technically sun ringle is one of my sponsors but I'm not entirely locked in to riding their stuff so that's what I meant by getting them for cheap/possibly free. I might just get something else that I might like more but saving money is always a bonus lol as for the spank wheelset, I'm keeping it built as a back up to take with me to races. I actually really like the wheelset but it's just a little to light and flimsy for racing and everyday riding. I also just miss the high engagement of my i9's haha so I'm stoked on these Profiles.
