That is an impressive weight, especially when you consider he has the command post on there! I want to hear more about the fork and the wheels. No brain shock? I'm surprised.
The fork is an SBC/RS Reba S29 with carbon crown/steerer from the epic 29er, converted to 120mm travel, the wheels are stock Roval Control 29ers with oversized 28mm endcaps that are drilled out for a DT RWS. The shock normally gets swapped back and forth between the triad and the brain.

nice customization.
But using the carbon crown with a longer travel (longuer lever) is pushing it a little...
You could use 20mm trough axle in the front, it really stiffen things up.

To bad this frame is not available with a 12mm axle in the back

How'd you get that color option? Frame only? did you get the comp and have it painted?
i think the poster works for the big S.

nice ride....looks fun. i have been thinking of doing the same thing but can't decide between a epic 29 or stumpy fsr 29.

what size frame is that? weight is impressive!

any light you'd like to shed on the biggest differences bet the brain and triad? not interested in comments on smooth climbs and DH's - more interested in how they compare on sustained chunky stuff both up and down
