 So sick Isaac... I'm more then a LITTLE Jelly, I rode one fo these for a weekend on Mt. Hood and I thought to myself "how can I live WITHOUT this bike???" The Norco Range made me think the same thing but the Enduro gets the nod in the "pure sex" department aye Wink I'm torn between the Meta SX and the Enduro for which is THE sexiest frame ever made.

 Thanks, I've been an Enduro guy for a while... I love these rigs. I also find this to be simple and aesthetically near perfect. Was a great rig.

 Love, love, love my new s works ednduro. Sexy is a great description of its ability to climb. and supersexy. Dh. At least it had handled my Kansas DH trails. Looking forward to some Rockies action this Summer.

 Sick ride.
How do you like the Elite X4?

 thank you, all about it. I've been a thomson guy for years, and there's no other 50 ml stem I ride. I use a 90 ml x4 as well, their stems are top notch in my opinion.

 Awesome. How does it compare to the regular Elite? I'm at a total loss as to which to get..the Elite X4 tempts me because the clamp on the Elite looks so sketchy.

 They are both good, the Elite used to be 25.4mm only, and the x4 was brought on as their intro to the new 31.8 clamp size when it appeared... I'd stick with the x4, I've run a couple of the Elite x2's, nothing wrong with them but as for looks I like the x4, the x2 does look sleek, and if I'm not mistaken it's a tad lighter. they both hold the bars well, and I've never had one or the other slip...

 Thanks for that, really helpful. I think I'll go for an X4 - it looks better in my opinion too, even if it is a little heavier. Do you know what the actual weight of the X4 - I tried researching it but it says approx 145g..that right?

 for a 50ml, the weight I've gotten was more 170-175ish. They aren't the lightest thing out there...

 Damn, that's annoying..says here it varies from 145-185g approx, depending on length - and the shortest should be the lightest?

 Hmm, it would appear after some research that the 50mm is actually the heaviest :S strange.
This is going to sound like an odd question.. but when matched with silver sunline bars, do you think a black or silver thompson would look best? I was thinking silver but I'm not sure..

 the 50 ml is milled from a larger block than the others. it's also got the largest dimension laterally. I used to run a black to the silver sunline's, but both would look good. there should be a pic amongst my photos somewhere.

 Ah I see. I was hoping for silver but they're out of stock on CRC so it'll have to be black I guess..should still look good. Is the regular elite lighter in it's 50ml version than the X4 in 50ml? Might consider it again..

 that I'm not sure, I don't know if there is a 31.8x50ml elite, but it would be lighter.

 Yeah there is..I'm still completely undecided though Frown

 If you don't have your heart set on Thomson, you may want to check out an Easton Havoc. 149g for a 1 1/8 50mm stem. Very happy with mine, haven't had any slipping issues and it's pretty sick looking. Not quite as subtle as Thomson but worth a look.

 Thanks Scotteh. That Easton is real nice, but I've found a 2nd hand Thomson for a lot less and that has made my mind up Razz

 Sorry, Never saw this. the rear is a grid, It's got probably close to 1500 miles on it now, the front is a control with maybe 400-600.
