The little ring around the BB is part of the frame. Just suppose to protect the frame from dropped chains, I suppose.

I rode it around today and LOVE it. So plush. Everything about it is very well thought out. An amazing bike that I will love even more as I get to ride it on trails.

and....

what's with that 'extra' cable routing boss? what're they thinking you want to route there?

#1: The shock mount bolt was loose. Luckily, I discovered it quickly because magnesium is soft.
#2 I can never get those caps to stay on.
#3 For a remote lockout shock, needs housing guides. I bought the DT Swiss rear shock (w/ remote) to replace the RP23.
