Thanks to everyone who posted and answered my fork questions. The totem fits perfect. It does not touch the downtube due to my previous filing for the van36 and with the lowspeed compression knob up it barely touches it but does not stop the bars at all. Also the bonty wheels are nice with DT swiss hubs, can be run tubeless and have a 5 year warranty. Now I just need some time to ride and a Ti spring!

totem

It looks awesome. I am curious about one thing and don't take it the wrong way please, it is just an observation. How come you decided on the black Totem over the Galvanized? I would think that with the Works frame the Galvanized would have gone good????? Well it was probably your color preference...... Nice build!

Not my choice. The galvanized totem coil is an OEM fork only. I spoke to RS twice about it and they told me I could buy the lowers for $200. Thanks but no thanks.

Looks great! :thumbsup:
Agree that the color of the fork is not worth the extra $$$$.
Pretty low weight for the build. I guess the small frame saves you a lot. Are the tires dual ply?

No single ply. I'm real light and I have run single ply at Diablo and Plattekill without any problems. I'm thinking of getting some Maxxis Tubeless DHR & DHF for it and I would not have to change anything and it would still be around the same weight.

3. I know it is scary but I really want a 6.6 too. I would have gotten the 6.6 slopestyle instead of the uzzi but it was not annouced when I bought this one. I figure the M1 will not last forever considering the headtube was slightly ovalized and it is made from a softer metal then stock. So the uzzi will take over dh duties in the future and the 6.6 would fit nicely between it and the 5.5.

Maxxis doesn't offer a single ply 2.5" tubeless tire! So you end up with more weight as the single ply + welterweight tubes are lighter. Only solution would be Stan's.
