It's surprising that it doesn't happen more often really. Bikes are usually cruising pretty quick, easy to sneak up on wildlife. I was actually just in the middle of trying to figure out how to bottle mount a can of bear spray on my bike. I'm still trying ... more ยป

I'm sure the bike rides great but IMO the looks of the frame is a little off.

Will the FIT4 cartridge FIT in a 2014 Factory 34 Talas 160?

Crazy, not worth it but impressed in a weird way none the less. You'd sure feel stupid if you were standing there and your friend plummeted to his death tho!

Sick bike! What size frame? Been thinking of getting the same wheels (with ProCore), any complaints or recommendations? Was the Pike a huge difference over the 34 Talas? Noticed you have IceTech rotors with your Trails, better that way? How do you find the 150mm on Pike, are you missing going 140 or 160...ride? Any complaints about the Float X? How you don't mind all these questions...haha!

Love your build, definitely not the cheap route tho.! I have a Trance Advanced SX as well. Been thinking about getting Derbys. Did you ride yours with the stock wheels first? Curious about the difference in stiffness, wheel performance? Any complaints about the Derby wheels? If I had more disposable income: BOS Deville fork, CCDBA or BOS Kirk Shock, Derby Rims, Next cranks, Hope brakes, Reverb Stealth 150...

Again, thanks "mrpowerjd". As you can see, I wasn't fully up to speed on the latest in bike tech, haven't had a bike for a few years. Old style bash rings make no sense if you can attach (ISCG). Thought I'd mention that Truvativ (with help from MRP) now has one too. It's the Truvativ "X0 Chain Guide". The Truvatic comes in 32-36T (and 36-40T) where the others are available in 28-32T. Now I'm wondering if I would notice the tiny loss in clearance using a 32-36T or if it would actually be even better to have that little extra protection...? I may still get the MRP AMG or Blackspire TrailX, will compare pricing, details... but thought I'd share. It seems mandatory to get protection on a 1x setup!

@ mrpowerjd. Thanks for the info. How tough are these compared to a bashguard? Are you running XO1 1x11 with an MRP? If so, XCG or AMG? Pros, cons, preferences? Does this drivetrain really need an AMG (top chain guide)? My bike is a Giant Trance Advanced SX.

" I just hope SRAM (Truvativ...) or whoever releases some bashguard options really soon. I could see some of the other companies being reluctant to make bashguards to protect the competition's new (and competing) drivetrain. It should have been done and released at the same time IMO."

Or maybe I'm wrong and they see an opportunity to sell a bunch of bashguards and advertise their brand at the same time? Raceface, Hope, Chromag....anyone stepping up? We need a 94 BCD 32T (maybe 30T, 34T options..too) that fits on X01 Crank. Let's not waste resources by destroying chain rings and drivetrains unnecessarily!
