Forbidden Dreadnought - Nerds
Forbidden Dreadnought - Nerds Chris Arruda's Dreadsled Shock: Push ElevenSix Bars: OneUp Components Carbon – 35mm Rise
Stem: OneUp Components – 35 mm
Fork: Fox 38 – 170mm Rims: TR41

While I run TR37′s on my light trail bike, I opted for TR41’s on this build for a wider tire profile and chose D-Light spokes on both ends to keep comfortable through the rough stuff. Pedals: Shimano Saint
Crankset: Raceface Aeffect 32T Rear Derailleur: SRAM AXS GX Cassette: Shimano XT
Brakes: Magura MT7 Saddle: SDG Bel Air
Post: OneUp – 240mm drop

Grips: Chromag Contact
Shifters: SRAM AXS GX Hubs: Chris King

In terms of hubs, Chris King still set the standard for performance and reliability so those were a no-brainer. Specs are centerlock, boost, and 32h.

Additional Info After getting along famously with the Dreadnought’s shorter travel brother the Druid last season, I decided on a two bike approach this year. I sold both my Druid and old downhill rig to build up this beastly Dreadsled for days when I’m itching to get steep and sendy. Wheelset My aim with these hoops was to create a no-fuss wheelset for aggressive all mountain riding comprised of components I would never have to worry about when out on the trail.
