Finally I got the frame. Looks good, but there is couple of things I do not like:

- Bottom bracket shell is quite thin..specially drive side.
- Bottle cage holes are so high in down tube that 750mm bottle is very near to hit the bottom of the top tube. I don´t understand why, there is a lot of room towards rear shock.
- Rear Shock mount bearings are piece of *hit. I can hear crackling sound when rotating the bearings.

Otherwise the frame looks good and well made.

I have now Race face Aeffect + 32t oval ring and Rockshox Monarch RCT 165x38 installed. Haven´t build the bike ready yet, so I´ll write more and put some pics here after first ride.

Same issues I'm having.  Rear shock bearing are hard to turn and aren't smooth. 
 Bottom bracket seems thin.  I'm worried about pressing my BB92 cups in and having them break.
 I'll post more pictures as soon as I get the head tube bearing in the mail and installed.
 Noniinno-- do you think this shock would fit on this frame if I changed out the 6mm bushings to 8mm..  https://www.ebay.com/itm/DT-Swiss-Scott-Nude-TC-Air-Rear-Shock-XM180-LRCS-165X38mm-6-5X1-5-Remote-MTB/252108545122?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649

Teeroy: I don´t see any reason why it doesn´t work.

I reported the issues of the frame to LC, and they promised to  check with engineer how to correct.

Now I have five decent ride with lcsf-911. Really have to say it is delicious bike.  It is very fast on flat and rear end eats roots and rocks but still effective pedalling every situation, even out of saddle big gear wrestling. Still it is light at uphill and trustfull and solid at downhill. The bike has120mm fork so it slackens the angles about one degree. I have had several fs bikes before (Specialized epic s-works, Cube Stereo HPC 120mm, Kona Hei Hei) and this is absolutely best I tried. Really good xc-machine. Now I have 27,5 x 2,6" Schwalbe Ice Spikers on it, the bottom bracket dropped approx. 5mm vs. 29er Rocket Ron. So happy with the bike, hope it is as reliable as it is fun.
