This is all private land so they can build anything their insurance companies let them. That said, the main focus at GR is real estate. I ride GR all the time (trail ride today). They still operate and are getting ready for ski season now. It is fully ... more »

And like I said, I am not arguing stiffness or precision, just weight. You may argue Stan's are not a high-end aluminum rim (I will disagree) but my point is strictly about the weight penalty.
Good review and don't want to be too critical

Stans Flow MK3 29" - 527 grams
Santa Cruz Reserve 30 29" - 490 grams
I would argue it would be very difficult to notice 37 grams in a rim while riding. I am not saying they are near as stiff or any of that other carbon arguments. But arguing these huge weight savings over aluminum is not really there.

After my experience with KS, NO WAY would I purchase a bike that locked me into their dropper! 3 rebuilds in just over a year. Switch to PNW Cascade. Happy after 6 rides, hope for good stuff long term.

Did you do any climbing with that super steep seat angle? The older patrol climbed great.

Nice looking bike. Question - Yari over a Pike or Lyric? I have not rode the Yari so I was wondering why you prefer that fork?

Thanks for the feedback, we'll be sure to keep that in mind. A wider Aggressor would be rad!

He was on a 29x2.30 Aggressor DoubleDown with a 29x2.50 Minion DHF up front. Really ripping setup for most conditions.
