Additional Info I also have a Wolftooth Remote lever installed with MatchMakerX. Outside of the wheelset it's all been upgraded or changed. This is my first real mountain bike and I have loved building it up to where I want it at. I just got done with my first real intense weekend on the bike in Copper Harbor, MI which is a big change from my average trails in Northwest Indiana. Some changes I want to make after putting it through it's first true test include a longer dropper. Probably going to go to a 170mm e.13 dropper as I have super long legs with room to spare on the seat post. I also want to go to 31.8mm bars to hopefully help reduce hand and arm fatigue as the bars felt super stiff. Outside of that, bike performed better then I could have ever hoped going both up and down the mountain.
