Added a comment about product review First Look, First Ride: SRAM GX Eagle Drivetrain - More Range For All 6/8/2017 9:03 AM

"I only have a handful of rides in on the GX Eagle group so far, but one thing is certain: the shifting performance feels almost the same as the pricier X01 group I had been running previously. Sure, the shift paddle lever might not be quite as smooth and shiny, but other than that tiny detail, I'd be hard pressed to tell the two groups apart in a blind test.

The transition between gears is quick and distinct, and although the jump to the 50-tooth cog is a touch slower than the shifting on the rest of the cassette, the chain still makes that eight-tooth jump with minimal hesitation. I haven't dropped a chain yet, and those inaugural rides included been plenty of rough and jarring trails — we'll see if that changes once some mud and grit is added to the mix, but given how well X01 Eagle performed, I don't expect GX to be any different. The long term performanc and durability of GX Eagle is the only question that remains unanswered, which is why I'll be putting plenty of miles in on it over the course of the summer to find out. "

HAHAHA.

One of the most basic segments, Schladming with Bryceland, is one of the most insane video parts ever made. I call it basic because it's a lot of GoPro and on a track the wasn't made specifically to be filmed. The raw energy and riding in that segment is next level f***ed. I can't imagine any other video part coming close to it for a while. It also felt like every segment of the movie outdid the one before it. Absolutely worth the hype and wait, this movie is going to stand on top for a long long time.

I used zip-strip, was pretty brutal. I'd recommend sanding the paint down as thin as possible before using the stripper, or getting it media blasted by a good paint shop. I sanded the aluminum lightly with 120 then 220 and finished with the scotch brite once I had the paint off.
