V2.5010 v2 or v3? I'll be watching your build
V2 would be on my shortlist too. Seems like a good balance between weight and fun. The imminent death feeling can come a bit easier with only semi gnarly down bits. not one bike is a true quiver killer yet.V2.
With the V3 I felt I was going to land between sizes, and V2 still has pressed in headset cups, which gives me the option to play with angle headsets down the track. I'll put a PYR thread up once I make a start (hopefully this weekend if the invisiframe kit arrives this week). I loved my Size L 5010 V2 once I got it dialed (it felt like a riding BMX with just a little suspension added), except that I felt like death was imminent any time I pointed it down steep rocky tech, so the same thing in XL should be just as much fun but a little safer too.
