I'll play, Size Large, 32.2lbs with the stock Fox Float DPX2, right at 33 with the DVO Jade X.anyone have any weights to report on their full builds and what their specs are?
Enjoy! Hope your better with internal routing than me!!My frame showed up today. I can’t wait to get it out on a test ride tomorrow!

It all comes down to your chainring, in your case. Just make sure you're using the non-Boost chainring option (though I remember a few years ago Race Face stock rings were just 1 offset that sat between ideal Boost and non-Boost, may not be true anymore)I have a V3 frame on order. This is my first time building up a frame and not just buying a complete bike and I have a question as I'm planning things out. I'll be using older non-boost wheels with the 142 dropouts and new Race Face cinch cranks -- anything I need to do to make sure I have a decent chainline? I'm using an 11 speed XT drivetrain.
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
What travel is your fork? And are your dropouts in Steep/High due to running 27.5 wheels?I just built up my Phantom. I got a good deal on a shop demo frame. I wish it were raw aluminum, but the black is stealth. I've only ridden it on snow with spikes tires at 10 psi (ie. paddy cake compared to summer), so I can't say too much about it yet, but I love the seated position. Stack feels high, but I've coming from a 27.5 bike, so I'm sure I'll get used to that. Even at the speeds I've going, you can feel how stiff the frame is.
Long wait for spring!
I'm running my V2 Phantom the same way. I have a McLeod rear shock that gives me around 120mm of rear travel too. Feels great!Fork at 140mm with 27.5. It's in high to get the BB up. Riding on snow, there is only the odd rock that pokes through, so BB height doesn't matter so much. I really can't tell much about how it rides till I get it on dirt. I do plan on running it as a mullet.
