    Thank you!
    I bought a new frame without shock and searched for discounted new parts. After a while I had everything needed. The DT Swiss was a heavily discounted offer that I couldn't miss.

    So all Sensor owners are welcome to post their horses.

    Let me start with mine. Still not built after almost 3 months due to multiple reasons and hope to finish it soon, but anyway here's the beginning:

    -2010 Sensor 1.0 frame, medium size
    -DT Swiss XMC130 carbon fork
    -RockShox Monarch 4.2 tune B shock
    -Stan's Crest / Superstar Evo hubs / Samip spokes / Superstar titanium-carbon QR skewers
    -Cane Creek IS headset
    -eXotic carbon 80mm stem
    -FSA 250 31.6 / 350mm seatpost
    -Vader 666 saddle
    -Shimano SLX 175mm crankset

    and still waiting in boxes:
    -Avid Juicy Ultimate brakes with 203 / 185 rotors
    -Easton Monkeylite XC CNT hi-rise 40mm carbon bars
    -Shimano SLX rear derailleur
    -Shimano XT front derailleur
    -Shimano XT gear shifters
    -Shimano XT 11-34 9-speed cogs
    -SRAM 991 chain
    -Kenda Nevegal tires with Michelin C4 latex tubes
    -Clarks lock-on grips
    Your bike is probably what we poor people dream about . Beautiful bike and color sir!

    Great bike and awesome color. This lime green color on the bike is the definition of pure fun!
    The white gear and brake outer cables were originally fitted;

    Just weighted the Sensor. 12.38kg with pedals, and as the Xpedo flats weigh 240g that makes the bike weigh 12.14kg without them (about 26.74lb).
    Very good.

    The 2011 Pro is a sweet build. My 2010 model didn't come in Expert and Pro, and kind of straddles the builds between the two. I've got the Fox fork like the Pro, but low-end LX/SLX 3x9 drivetrain instead of the 2x10 XT of the Pro. So of course, what did I just order from Performance? 2x10 XT crankset. I used the Performance Points I had from buying the bike, so it's like free stuff!

    How do you guys like the sensor? I just got my Force 3.0 and I found out Nashbar has a sale one the Sensor 2.0 for less than the cost of my force (both 2010 models). I couldn't decide which one I want so I just bought both, the Sensor will be here by Saturday. I will have to see which one I like better for the type of trails I ride.

    Yeah, Im ordering the 2011 thats near a neon green and has a SLX 10spd drivetrain. I saw the black.grey one your talking about on Nashbar. Im already "downgrading" from XT components to SLX, but I think the newer SLX stuff will be as nice as the older XT stuff I was riding. Regardless, I had been thinking about updating some things anyways.....what better way than a whole new rig??

    I havent seen this green in person yet...it may take a trip to the power coater this winter for a matte-black finish....???

    The green in person looks badass. Shines like a custom painted car

    anyone posting any pics of the green Sensor 2.0? (the 2011)....i'm on the fence between getting my wife the 2011 sensor 2.0 or a Force 3.0. She's a biker, but not mountain. Thinking the Sensor would be lighter than Force, right? (i'm a Specialized guy, don't know GT too well). And therefore easier on her transition from roadie to dirt slinger

    In my opinion get her the Sensor because:
    -she's not an avid mountain biker
    -Sensor is lighter
    -Force is taller and for more aggressive riding

    Check here:
    http://www.gtbicycles.com/bikes/mountain/endurance

    I think GT has a special women's Sensor model. the Sensor 2.0 GTw, not sure if there's a women specific Force (I'm pretty sure she will like a lot the Sensor!)

    thanks - yeah, we're gonna do the Sensor. You're right.

    Going to do a medium non-women's specific. She's about 5'10" with long gams

    She tried a medium 2010 Sensor at a shop, and it felt all good, so.....

    New update on the bike:
    Easton haven bar
    Easton havoc 65mm stem
    M985 xtr trail pedal
    Slx crank
    Ztr crest stock wheels

    Cut the weight down to 26.0lbs w pedals.
    Size small with a downyuppy seatpost

    im pretty happy with the weight considering nothing on it carbon. itll probably get heavier when i get a new front tire 2.4 MKii Race Sport and more the 2.2MK to the rear. but will go tubeless so that may negate the heavier tire

    Just asked if it's better and lighter than the original, not particularly for the color.

    i dont know exactly how much lighter it is but i can imagine it is i believe the stock one was steel/mixture this one is aluminum and no pins. its a e.13 chain guide ring. bought it more for the color than the weight saving removing the outer rings was already a huge saving
