I did a hc2 on my first 700. I saw some gains but a 11:1 piston with that cam works pretty good. I don't know how far your willing to go with your project, but you would be happy with that setup for sure.

I have the 14 degree flexx bars and I like the ergonomics. If you're going to get a set of adapters for the larger bar diameter I'd get a set that provides a rise, especially if you're taller.

If you decided to get an extended anti vibe stem instead, consider the Precision Shock & Vibe clamps. Ive ridden a bunch of xc with both set ups and I find the Precision clamp with a good set of Tags superior....all IMHO of course.

I'm like 5'8" or so, and have the Flexx bars in 14 degree, QuadRacer bend. I love them, I have a 1.5" riser and a 0.75" riser under it. Going to swap out the 1.5" riser for a +2" steering stem.

I'm thinking about doing the big 3 and hc3 , 11.5 all at once
Yup, good idea. It's the setup I just completed and it's definitely a very perky ride. Hard to go wrong with that if you're not outright dragging.

Also I've seen a few others talking about an extended stem. It's a really good comfort mod. At your height I'm bettn +1 or +1.5 would prolly getcha pretty comfy. And....no kidding. If you're gonna go there, look at Precision's shock & vibe clamp with some good fat bars. A LOT of xc pros have switched out from the formerly "best" Flexx bars. That clamp will also add 1/2" in bar height. At 5'11" I run it on a + 1 1/2 stem. Any higher for me would almost be ape hangish.....
