    Yea I’ve put my name on one the LBS has coming in January.

    And yes, this will be my 3rd FEX. They have always been really good middle ground bikes. Not too far on either extreme end of the spectrums, just bikes that do it all well. This one having some serious flexibility makes it all the more desiresable for a one bike stable.
    The older platform would blow through its top end too quickly and would sit mid stroke too much for my liking. They’ve tweaked that out.

    That's the best place to buy em. Not a lot of demand so the prices aren't outrageous. If you're curious where I'm riding this thing check out Windrock, Snowshoe, Horns Hill, Marquette, Shepherd Mountain, Copper Harbor, and Beech ;)

    Just clicked on his profile haha! Absolute gem of a place, big fan of the trails around Knoxville too.

    Was planning on heading your way to check out Jarrod's Place here pretty soon.

    I've got family in Beech Grove, my geography naming stinks.
    I'd have never thought that was Mid-West, Mid-East maybe lol.

    I know, it makes no sense. Most people consider Ohio and Indiana as part of the Mid-West and they're well into the eastern half of the US. Hell I've heard some crazy folks refer to West Virginia as "Mid-West"...

    I learned a while back that Ohio was on eastern time and that blew my mind. for some reason, I always thought itw as central.

    That would be sick! I’ve always been a fan of the fuel and imagine the new changes will only make it better

    Finished building my Sentinel V2 from the frame up and got the first rides in today. It's long, slack and fast. Need to put a lot more miles to get used to it but I'm loving how hard this thing charges downhill and how easy it pedals compared to my last bike-- a GT sanction pro (27.5)

    Currently waiting on a Pnw dropper post (old line was too short so I've been running it manually with a quick release and don't have a remote mounted.

    I've got a PNW 170 that’s brand new off of my arrival I need to sell.

    The plan was to keep it in case another bike came up, but if it’s exactly what you’re after lol.

    I already ordered mine but appreciate it anyway. I'm wanting 180 so I went with the 200 and plan to run it at 180

    There are some that divide the west up in to pieces, such as Intermountain West or Region, to make it more confusing

    So I added some good rear triangle damage to the ridewrap, possible the carbon. Idk glanced at it and kept going when it happened.

    What have you guys used on top of scraped ridewrap to somewhat “fix” it. I’m thinking this.
