I've gotten in a few rides now and this bike is amazing. I finally cleaned a steep, loose climb that has been beating me and the descents are ridiculous fun. It's bigger, longer and slacker than my GF HT 29er and just flies around our local XC trails like it's a super-cross bike. I'm going to enjoy the hell out of this thing this year.

Great build. I'm planning to buy the Comp complete version of that thing - won't be as nice as hand picking each part though.

Question for you - how's the low end of that drivetrain - 26 ring x 36 tooth cog? The only thing I was considering changing on my bike was to swap the stock 22/33 chainrings for a 26/36 combo, just seems to make more sense, but I'm worried about the low end for long steep climbs. Let me know what you think so far.

Wish I had the extra cash to build a stumpy up....i absolutely love the blue and black frameset, didn't like the frame you built from in the pics on the website, but seeing it in person with your build, it is alot nicer. I just couldn't see spending the extra money to go with the stumpy frame, instead picked up a camber pro. I'm happy with the desicion and the couple extra benefits of the stumpy wasn't worth the $1000+ difference...

Being relatively new to MTB, I was a little worried about losing the 22x34 granny that I had on my other bike since I did use it on a couple of hills that I ride regularly. But so far, on the same trails, the 26x36 has been just fine. I think it ends up being about a 2 gear inch difference. I rode a couple of long (to me, ~ 3/4mi.) steep climbs in the granny and it wasn't a problem. Just makes one stronger! Overall, I'm really liking the 2x10 - 26/39x12-36 setup for my trails.
