Tubeless tires

Thanks, yeah it’s built to take a beating lol. Surprisingly it’s still pretty light.
I used Strava for the first time in a long time today, I’m trying to lose some weight so I started doing a little climbing loop with some fast downhill. My uphill was very slow lol but it said my top speed on one trail was 54.7kmh :see_no_evil:.

The frame looks to be built like a tank, I’m guessing it’s aluminium? what kind of rise is on the bars?

I hope you’re wearing body armour :turtle:

actually its carbon, handlebar is 25mm rise 780mm width

and yep knee/shin and elbow pads for sure, sometimes I use a full face helmet as well.

Wow, that thing must be a rocket :rocket:

I put 20mm rise 750mm wide carbon bars on mine. When I put on the wheels I had committed to it being for XC so I took off the dropper post and put on a carbon seat post. My frame is carbon too but the rear triangle is aluminium so I was only able to get it down to 11.5kg :grimacing:

I use body armour too but only knee and elbow pads, no need for a full face at the local place

haha yep. right on. i think my bike is around 14-15kg its an XL , and the front fork is 180mm, bigger rotors, dh tires.

i think even if my bike weighed 5 kg id still be just as slow getting up the hill :smile:

Nah shaving off weight doesn’t make you much faster but it sure is addictive :grin:
I’ve only got 120mm travel but it’s enough for my needs. It’s got remote lockout for the shocks which is handy for climbing but if you’ve a well set up shock you shouldn’t really need it.
The final thing I had to change were the brakes so I upgraded them to Shimano XT M8000’s
I think I’m finally done spending money on my bike :roll_eyes:

My husband used to groom and create mtn bike trails in his free time as a hobbie. If they are not wide enough for you, why not widen them yourself? with permission from landowner?

They are maintained by a non profit and located on a state park. I can’t do anything about the trees unfortunately. I just have really wide shoulders.
