@Rick, do tell how it rides compared to your previous fork (a Reba?). Too bad they don't offer a 120mm anymore, I'd really like something as tunable and light as SID to drop some weight from my heavy-ish Marvel Pro in order to achieve a sub-9kg build.

Nice! I do wish they kept making it in a 120mm flavor.

Not in the area, but just chiming in to say congrats on the prime location. Would be cool to see some pics.

New SID installed, didn't like the white decals but the stealth decals were in the box so did a quick change. First ride out on them tomorrow running one token and 68psi  ;D 8)

Ok old should be refrased as trusted / proven. Bulky More directed to the 057 (1280+-40g thats heavy).  I looked at 062, it’s a good choice, also proven, on/off coms with seller, had/ have some issues with internal cable routing.

The better question are: All the other mentioned frames vs the 062 frame.

My perfect TT are 609mm With a 90mm stem. thus with long legs and short arms a 620TT will give me a +-80mm stem depending on the reach. (I don’t worry that much about Stack as i have long legs...i don’t have such big kahona’s

It may not be for everyone but the trend is definitely going towards longer TT's with shorter stems. I transitioned that way over the past couple of years. Started with a 605 TT, 100mm stem, and 685mm wide bars. Now I'm at 620+ TT's, 50mm stems, and 760mm wide bars. I have 3 bikes, all with the same bar / stem combo, 2 have 620mm TT and one has 621mm.  I've tried 35mm stems with 800mm bars but it's just too wide for me. For reference, I'm just over 5'11" with relatively normal proportions.

I have the 062 and I love it. But you are correct with the communication being hit or miss. And it isn't the lightest. My 18.5" frame with BSA BB came in at 1198g. If it ever fails, I would probably go for the CS-496 and have to get some boost wheels for it. If XMCarbonspeed has what you are looking for, it's definitely the safest option to go with.

The M06 has become a very popular frame so everyone's jumping on the bandwagon! I love my M06, it's the best bike I've owned to date :)

All very simillar, CS-218 are the lightest, but 18.5” frames fits me best. (Long inside leg, short torso). I am NOT looking at the Workswell 063 or 057 frames as they are big bulky old and heavy designs. The MB01 have great geometry but looks bulky/awkward with the seat stay vibration damper.. slightly heavier than CS-218. The CS-887-SL have a massive 65mm BB drop and heavier than MB01, but TT are spot on correct lenght.

Have anyone build a CS-218 or CS-887-SL or LCM904 from Yishin Bike?

I have not built any of the frames that you listed, but I am looking to a new frame as well as you.

Take a look at the frames below, perhaps you may add them to your list:

Component Deals & Selection / Re: Tubeless-Ready vs regular rims.
« Last post by gohloum on December 14, 2017, 08:43:03 AM »
Yeah, he is right.  Definitely go with TR tires if you can.  With good sealant, the non TR tires will most likely seal up, but sometimes the sidewalls weep fluid.

Also, if you burp a wire bead tire, there is little chance of recovering on the trail unless you have a CO2 cartridge with you.  The wire bead pulls off the shoulder and doesn't flex back as well.  I found that out too.

Actually, Schwalbe just release their new ADDIX compound tires, so a lot of places are selling the Pacestar compound ones really cheap.  I picked up 2 Racing Ralphs for $33 each.  They were SnakeSkin carcass and Tubeless-Ready.
