XTR hubs with 20 mm front axle
180 mm front rotor, 160 mm rear

5.75 inches of rear wheel travel

Sweet! That bike is looking mighty tempting!

The head angle, though...looks to be just right for a 29er.You can't really compare head angles between bikes with different wheel sizes.

Nice! That's a good looking bike. My 6.6 is the best all arounder backcountry bike I've owned, but this might just be enough to tempt me.

Just curious..........what front derailleur is the frame designed around? Looks like this has the potential to be a 29er dh rig with some stiffer wheels mounted to it(Industry 9). Looking good!!!! Any update on the Slopestyle 6.6?

What does that 5.5 29er weigh?
28 lbs?
I think the Spider 29ers I've seen are also around 27-28ish.
