It's such a stiff ride, but it does ride beautifully. You should see the way the brake looks! I'll put a pic up in Sunday. The caliper positioning looks perfect with the mount placement.

Cool.
Got one of these for my son, but we opted for a little less travel. No complaints yet, A great all around hardtail, with some cool provenance...

A big step up from his trek 3900, he loves it:

The Ridge has landed with a true enthousiast, feeling the love...

It handles the long forks well, but you need another stem indeed. I had a 50mm Azonic Shorty on it that suited the frame well for length and volume. And do you consider one of the low and wide bars? 700+mm trials flatbars for example.

Enjoy!!

It's getting a 28mm direct mount stem tomorrow. :)

I've got 700ish low rise bars on it. They feel perfect, I'm not big on flat bars. I need too know the seatpost size though, Sinister's website says 27.2 and it's clearly not.. Can you tell me it please?

I have a 27.2 and it's way loose. A 29.4 I tested is sort of loose too.

The Orange Ridge frame takes a 30.9mm post, it is a different model from the green one.

Enjoy!!

Iwish you have a PM
