    Any thoughts on the Revel Rail 29?

    Never have built a new bike ground up with the parts I want from scratch. Was in a newer shop in town and they mentioned the Rail 29. Not as progressive geo as some of the enduro sleds out now but looks to be a little longer than my Tracer 275 which I think would be good and I've been thinking of going 29er for a bit. So any thoughts or rumors on the frame? Will not be full on budgie if I do it. Already said no to an Elevensix or EXT but still XT level or so so maybe a little bling here and there.

    I think Joetron is a Revel dealer and smmokan has Revel's in his fleet as well.

    I donít think a ton of people have time on the Rail 29 yet (even here in carbondale I havenít seen many) but those I do know are very hyped on it. CBF kicks ass on the way up and down so itís hard to go wrong. Iíve been on a rascal for a couple years and like it more than any other bike Iíve tried, but to each their own. I imagine theyíll get some demos going this summer

    That's what I'd like to replace my megatower with eventually if I keep a big bike in the stable.

    I'm supposed to get a size run of XT builds in the next week or two.... I'll definitely report back as soon as I can get some time on one.

    For anyone interested in 27.5 Rail, they are apparently 20% off at the moment for both frames and builds that are in stock. I've been riding mine a ton lately, love this bike!
