Regarding CB; I get there were a bunch of previous issues but I think they have come a long way and their stuff now is very good. I have been running Iodine wheels on my Ibis now for 3 seasons with zero issues and really like them. I didn't buy them for their looks although they do look great. I have been using the new Mallet 3's since last season and I love them. I have hit a ton of rocks riding here in NJ.
Regarding the fork: Josh, I bought the lowest level Superfly 100al as a leftover from last season just for Steamboat so yeah, although the fork itself is fine the QR thing sucks and makes no sense especially on a 9'r where every bit of stiffness counts. Overall its spec'd out pretty good for this price point. The only thing I am really "iffy" on is the new Avid Elixer 1's. Supposedly, the new brake is decent and this came with 180 rotors but my guess is they won't last long up there.
