Very nice! Setup very similar to mine. The only thing I would have ordered differently would be the DHX rear shock. I wasn't believing all the hype about it, but then this past weekend, I got to ride an Ellsworth Moment with a DHX, and it felt so much more active than my 5th!

I went with the 5th because that's what it came with off of the MTBR classifieds. Maybe later this summer I'll spend the 400 bones to upgrade to the DHX.

I don't want to say anything about the brakes just yet since I haven't broken them in yet. Once everything is setup properly with the suspension and brakes I'll give a completely detailed evaluation.
