@rideczech, how are you liking the bike man??  Have you had anymore time on it?  Is the length still a problem, or have you gotten used to it?  Still absolutely loving my P8, but still get the occasional pedal strike now and then.

Plenty more hours on the bike.... Also suffer with pedal strikes on our more technical trails... mainly traverse stuff.
The bike is mega planted.... still looking for a bit more pop. I guess I like a lively feeling bike. Still running the 60mm stroke shock... so hoping less travel will give me what I'm looking for!

Yes, traverse and tree roots.  But I will say the more I ride it, the less they happen.  So clearly learning pedal position is prevailing.

Hey rideczech... Hope you don't mind if I upload these pics directly to the forum.. bike is too sweet for anyone to miss it. Great build, man. If I were to do a build right now I would most likely build it pretty much exactly as you have it. Only thing I might change would be going with the p8 instead of the p9, not sure.

Now that you have time on the bike.. is there anything you would do differently if you were to start over?

Overall I'm very pleased with the build, It is 14kg on the nose and to have gone lighter would have added unreasonable costs. I'm still waiting on the 210x55 shock and hoping the bike will be a little more poppy with less rear wheel travel. Plus tyres have many advantages, but do make things a little lazy. I still think the FS27(with correct travel 122mm??) would be more fun and lively. Once into bigger faster terrain, the P9 is a blast. I think the p8 built up longer travel 200x57 and a 140mm up front would be a great all rounder! Just would need to be a little slacker for my liking!

Hoping to put an X Fusion Trace 36 on the bike once the forks become available.... axle to crown is 20mm longer than the Sweep, so will slacken it out a bit, more inline with where it should be..... :-)
