Sadly not... Went a bit overboard on the honeymoon and it had to be sacrificed. Was by far the best bike I have ever owned though! Fond memories. Hopefully be back on the trails, all be it on a lesser bike in the near future.
Stans over Easton every day of the week! People I know have had plenty of issues with Easton. Proprietary spokes brake too often and can't be replaced as quickly or easily as on Stans and the rear hub engagement is crap.

+1 for the above. SS Magic Mary Hans Dampf combo is plenty tough enough for most riding. I've found them to be great on very rocky trails. Just don't expect this to be a fast rolling combo. Cornering grip in spades but not fast rolling.
You can definitely reduce your pikes from 160mm to 140mm. I know someone who is going down to 130mm for a Santa Cruz Solo and I believe you can even get them as low as 120mm. All you need to do is change the air shaft accordingly. The part itself is worth about $50 and is available from Monza...
