Came out very nice. Hope it rides trail the way you want.

Thoughts: Not terribly adjustable, but you know that. Still think you are going to have issues with the fixed seatpost sooner rather than later. Brake lever position appears to need some tweaking in terms of reach and location. Think you'll find those tires are overkill for anything you can reasonably ride on a hardtail. I'd suggest some S-works Fast Traks. They'll be a lot faster on everything and save you more than a pound of rotating mass, at the cost of some grip on wet rocks and logs.

I can't even imagine having a nice looking frame such as that and not being able to adjust the seat height...

What benefit does that even have besides slightly less weight?

Hydraulic seatposts are revolutionary... I guess you don't ride downhill or anything that isn't smooth?

I am pretty sure GW doesn't mountain bike at all and he built this on impulse. People have been telling him continuously, "hey man that doesn't really work, you know..." and he just says, "it's at the right height for me". He thinks it's just like road biking. That's the impression I get, anyway.

I can tell that you don't mountain bike either. XC racing is ALL about technical features and how well you manage them. And if the XC course in question doesn't have any technical features, you may as well be riding a cross bike. There's no reason to have a suspension fork and big-knob 2.2" 29er tires. In other words, the bike doesn't make any sense. It's not really good for anything.

You're thinking XCO. Think XCM. I'd put 2 chainrings on the front, but still, GW's bike is drool-worthy, at least for me. And anyway, it's HIS bike, he can do whatever he wants with it.

Giant Escape - for commuting. Surprisingly nice bike for such low-end components and being a flat-bar.

Giant Revel - for fun

1974 Schwinn Sports Tourer - current project bike. Rear triangle is completely bent at the at the brake bridge, the whole thing is offset by about 2cm. I want to get this sucker up and running again by next spring, but it's going to take a little bit of effort.

Not him but I've got the smallest one. It's ok but I don't know how well they would last for daily use. I just got it because I had an mtx rack and needed to cart lunch and tools on trails, and saddlebags annoy me in the rough and panniers are too big for that.

It's served me well for light commuting but it's not too hot for bulky or heavy loads. I have been thinking about ordering in their basket or crate attachment for bulkier loads but it's pretty good for just a light 1 day mini-tour type thing.

I keep my tools, gloves, camera, lights, lock(s), etc. in it for daily riding, the drop down bags are pretty good for _light_ clothing but no heavy coats or anything like that. I guess you could stick a shoe on either side though as long as they're not massive boots or something like that because the drop-downs don't seem particularly sturdily built.

How is no one else seeing that this might be a pretty kickass mud, grass, and gravel bike?

I don't have much of a problem with it. Yeah the seatmast is a little (read: really) strange, but I don't actually move my seatpost at all. It's set pretty high, and a little forward. I can ride some pretty technical stuff with it. Technical doesn't have to be roots and rock gardens, and tons of gnar. It can be loose dirt, heavy mud, and tons of switchbacks, too.
