@iainc - I've read that summary a few times, and it gets me really excited. Sounds exactly what I'm looking for.
@glasgowdan - Wow! Thank you for some really great advice. I guess I'll go for a 34, I'd rather struggle up hill and have more options downhill. I guess I can always swap it out later on if I feel it's too large. Wandering on climbs really isn't a concern, you're right there. I was just worried about the front being too high with 160. I had ruled out 160 because every seemed to think 150 were pretty high. I definitely don't want to go lower than 150. So I guess it's just a choice between 150 and 160. Also, thanks for the confirmation of a small frame. I guess if both medium and small work, then I'd rather go for a smaller frame for fun / to throw it about.
@metalheart - Thanks for the link. How did I miss that page? Meh, too busy looking at dem nice pictures of a BFe.
@Tim - Lol. Nicely put.
@westcoastmassive - Great advice, when I speak to Cotic I'll ask about the height of the BB with 150 Vs 160. As I've said a few times, 150 is the lowest I want to go. Also, thanks for the size confirmation too. very, very helpful. I'll go for a 34 up front
@kelvin - Thanks for the contact details too. Yeah, Pikes, 150mm is where I'm heading atm. Just that greedy me thinks, hmm, what if I could run 160?
@svalgis - More single ring confirmation, thank you. I definitely want a slack feel, BFe seems ideal for this.
@jambalaya - Me too, downhill > XC if I have to chose a fork. I think I'm in the hate camp for adjustable seat posts. I prefer as a little to go wrong as possible
@deviant - Agree completely. Well put and thank you.
