^^^ That looks like some mighty buff singletrack
as for the superlight compared to other fs it still feels comfortable hitting roots and rocks, but i have way less pedal bob than my buddy with a trek fuel ex9. i tried the cannondale rz120(3) and scott spark70-60-50. they were all nice, but didn't feel 'special' to me. to me the superlight is a proven design that climbs like a hardtail and deals with roots and obstacles like a fs.
i also am mainly xc / singletrack, but now wouldn't mind adding in a little more downhill to the mix.
What chain ring is that? ^^^
The cut-out areas are usually behind the crank arms, and the solid areas are at 3 & 9 o'clock for bashing off rocks & logs.
anyway, that thing should fly!

Ahhhh...you know I didn't even pay attention to the cut outs on the CR until you said something. I'll rotate it just to be safe. Thank you!
CR is a 34t RaceFace single:

Packing my gear for a week of joy, going down south to Schwarzwald, Germany, in the morning!
(Sadly on borrowed hardtail and no FS-fun though...)
Mountain bikes are good when you are going on hard and rough way like hill this time it is very useful. But it is very expensive so it's hard to buy for middle class person like me. But I am crazy for is so in future I surely buy it. Any ways all photos are awesome and fabulous.
Not the best picture (just walking by in the garage). Mine is the Trek 8000 in the front, and the wifey's is in the back. Just picked her up a new Trek Marlin 29'er last week. Luckily she rides the same size as me, so while she's gone for a couple weeks I can put it through it's paces on some trails
