My SRAM cassette is clunky enough thanks

Been using this cassette with Shimano XT 12 speed shifter and derailleur and a KMC chain and it works great. My hub didn't have a Microspline freehub available, and I didn't want to buy a whole new rear wheel, so this solution was perfect. It's also a nice chunk lighter...more

WHY ARE YOU PEDALING BACKWARDS?

It’s great for backing out of the driveway.

or to charge the battery for the hidden motor in the hub, right?

I pedal backwards to take the miles off the odometer and keep my bike looking new.

11 spd with an 11-50 cassette... a freeride bike to hit jump lines not to climb lame xc hills. Get some legs guys! The entire bike was put together from pinkbike's buy/sell ads minus the wheelset & frame. Braaaap

That drivetrain was under $150... and the bike is 6 yrs old so why put expensive brand new parts on to send it... so cool story bro!

Good to know. And how about the approximate sag... upper 20s?

Wide variety of trails over the last couple months at this point and I haven't had any issues with coil. In the few times I have bottomed it out, it wasn't harsh at all.

The standard SLS spring works for the type of riding I do most: loamy singletrack and technical european hikingtrails. I do have a MRP Progressive spring for the very few times I ride bikepark and flowtrails tho. Just to make it a bit more poppy.

How does she do with the coil? Don’t you need something like an MRP progressive coil to help with bottom out resistance?

Clean and sexy and priced very well! That $3800 29er model looks great with full carbon frame and full SLX (incl. 4 pots), not to mention piggyback rear shock and 36 fork. Will definitely consider for my next bike and would drop a 150 air shaft from the get go. STA could be steeper (76-77 is my personal preference) but it's not horribly slack.

Looks solid and prices look really good too.

Just a thought Jeff. At the $5k pricepoint, which is alot of money but also a build that I think will be very popular, the full carbon frame + general spec is on par with other bikes like the carbon Sentinel & Ripmo (gx builds) with the exception of the suspension which is bump up in performance vs it's peers. Nice to see the X2 & Grip 2 on this bike.

I haven't ridden this vs the Capra 29 but this platform looks waaaaay better in terms of do-it-all-ability vs the YT. Though a forked up / long-shocked Jeffsy29 (150r/150 or 160f) might be a better comparison. Anyway a shootout vs the Ripmo seems in order and also a $3k of the ones you mentioned. Finally, the alu Sentinel is a bit of a porker on the climbs (and at about 34.5 lbs size large GX build on the shop floor, so even heavier in NX trim) so I wonder what the Giant in alu weighs in at.

Added a comment about press release You Asked, We Delivered...$2100 M Series 6/25/2019 2:15 PM

Well now, I'll take 2 sets then!

Joke... but my rear hub is a Project321 w/ silent pawls so another option for the list plus anodized options like Onyx.

My carbon wheelset (china-direct $200 rims) w/ P321(r) and Hope(f) hubs has been uber reliable for over a year and a half now. Not 'cheap' by any means as the wheelset was still over $1100 to build up (nice rear hubs don't come cheap!) but you can build so much for so much less than this.

I like Enves rim strip solution though and respect their recent warranty improvements. I hope others copy their rim strip!
