Great looking bike Paxx. Great taste in suspension and wheel manufacturer. (same as mine lol) This is one of the few bikes I've seen on here that I like as much as my own and I'm picky!! Have fun shredding that beast!

Did you use heat shrink on the cables?

Thank you for restoring sanity to the coffers of Vital BoD Transition builds.

As with all things, there are trade offs in a build. In this case it came down to weight. I would have preferred the tire profile and strength of the agent but the 3mm difference doesn’t create a drastic difference in profile and with a no questions asked warranty, the strength concerns were mitigated (not that I’m worried - these things are quality!).

At the end of the day I knew I wanted full coil and in order to keep the bikes weight reasonable, I shaved grams elsewhere. Plus I’ve always been a fan of reducing rotating weight anyways. I find it really helps with acceleration and that peppy feeling when you need it. The Exo+ are great in that regard too so far. Regular Exo doesn’t last around here so it’s always been about the DD casing. The + seems to be holding up well and is significantly lighter.

Nice rig. How did you choose between agent and insider rims from WAO on a bike like this?

Nice build, how the Revgrips behave on real world? BTW impecable cable routing set up , what do you think about routing the front brake behind the left leg ( ala Marzocchi) ?

Added a comment to Paxx's bike check 1/22/2019 7:31 AM

The RevGrips work well. It’s not earth shattering but imo it’s worth the money. The movement is subtle enough that you don’t notice it when riding unless you are paying attention to it. That said it moves enough that it is isolating your hands from some of the trail chatter for sure. With the snow this time of year I haven’t had the chance to do full on 45min+ descents yet or park days, but I certainly haven’t noticed any arm pump or hand fatigue on the rides I’ve done so far. I’m definitely happy with them.

And thanks for noticing the cable routing! We spent a long time getting everything just right so there was no rub anywhere. Makes for a nice quiet ride! Plus it just looks so clean - makes my ocd brain happy ha ha!
