What's up with polished up inner surface of rocker arm where the rear shock busing goes to? Did you experience clearance issues too or that's what you had to do in order for 22.2mm wide bushing to fit? My RWC bearing scratches this part unless you move it in right direction.

If you are having problems with the pivot bolts loosening on a regular basis, blue Loctite would be something I would seriously consider doing, there really is no down side to applying some the next chance you get.  Another alternative would be some teflon tape if you don't have any Loctite handy.

Bike is now 99% done, installed & bled rear brake, installed manitou macleod remote, lizardskin chainstay protection, new sidefeed bottlecage. Realized the bottlecage is still too close to the rear shock and remote since I need to have it installed forward for the remote cable, so ended up drilling new holes in a old bottle cage which worked well with the remote. Also changed the lower rear shock bushings from 21.8mm ones to 22.2mm which elimated the play. So all in all bike is now finished, last thing is the new red grips incoming next week.

Added afew picture to the google album linked in OP.

Update 2: Pivot Bolts

So it seems my pivot bolts loosen up after a few rides, not a big problem except the one over the bottom bracket. There is not enough room for a standard allen wrench. The only way I could tighten it is to remove the cranks. I don't think this is a problem if you have anything under 32 teeth.  I solved the problem with a  "Stubby" wrench I found on Amazon:

Thought you might want to know.

PS.  Does anyone know if they use Loctite on the Pivot Bolts?

Thanks for the heads up. For the shifter (1x11), would the correct order be a "Rear Bar Mount "?

I think you made the right choice.  I dont know how it compares to what youre riding now, but the 19" I ordered has a longer reach than my current 19" frame, even though the ETT is the same.  If torn between sizes, I would have gone smaller.  Even at 6' even, I wonder if I should have sized down.

Great thanks.  After so more considering, 17.5 looks like the way to go.

I've got a new phone with a better camera! Today was the first successful ride after the clay incident, even after thorough cleaning and a dose of lube the chain produces annoying grinding noise. I guess I'll have to replace it. Also got a great deal on 1099 cassette, it shifts different compared to 771: snappy and loud.

I would take a 17,5".

I'm as tall as you, but with a 34" inseam.
I took L on 3 frames so far.
Just to avoid a big drop between the saddle and the bar.
And short stems(70-80mm) to compensate the long reach.

In your case, the saddle will be much lower, and you can play with a longer stem if you like.
The best is to draw some lines based on the geometry data, and compare the 17.5" and 19" ( I use sketchup for that ).
Then compare it to your current bike. It should be quick to know which one fits best.
