    Post your Sensor pics here!

    As the Sensor is a fairly new and not so common rig of GT stable, I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread with as many Sensors as we could collect. Frames, complete bikes, stock or upgraded, 26ers or 29ers.

    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

    Mipi - The build up looks great so far...I'm really diggin the fork! Did you by chance get a weight on the exotic stem? I have been running their carbon post on my 9r for years and I recall it being very light.

    Thank you!
    Yes, the fork looks fantastic. Let's see how it performs.

    About the carbon eXotic stem, I ordered 2 of them, 80mm, one for the Sensor and the other for the Avalanche 1.0 I have. Well it's strange but one stem is just a bit longer than the other. The longer is 131g and the shorter 125g. I guess they must be from different production lines or it's just a factory malfunction. The built quality is very good though.

    I was almost ready to order the 31.6 / 350mm eXotic carbon post as well that is a wonderful post but I was afraid to sit on a carbon one so I finally bought the white FSA SL250 alloy. But after your thoughts I guess I should have bought it instead. On the eXotic site it has a 188g weight and the FSA is 265g. I'm not a weight maniac but the eXotic post looks fantastic!

    The black Sensor is the best color option in my opinion of all 2010 Sensors. It's the color I wished my Sensor would be. Then I would built it all black with little red anodised details.
    Great bike your's!

    They're really diferente the mojo is 150mm in front and 140mm on the back, the sensor is only 120mm front and back, the sensor is great on teh uphills the mojo on the downhills, they have a really diferent feelling but a like them both.

    hugobball, is there any reason to mount the shock in opposite direction than I mounted mine, I mean is it just ergonomics to mount the shock with the can on the back;

    It was mounted this way be have better reach of the lockout nob. But I really never did use it, I think the idrive sistem is so stiff that there isn't almost any pedal bouncing.

    In the front I regulary use the lockout in the uphills, but even there I think it behaves prety well without it.

    For me this frame, and my setup is really agille, very nice for small technical trails, the whells are so light you can point your direction without using any strenght.

    Beautiful bike!
    How does it feel with an adjustable seatpost; Is it worth the extra weight;

    Thanks mipi. It is definitely worth the weight. Honestly I couldn't even tell because I upgraded the seat, tubes and tires at the same time. So the bike was actually a lot lighter overall when I actually got it on a trail. However If I could do it again, I would probably buy the longer travel post because when I get in my dirt jump moods, I actually have to lower the post to get more clearance.

    The only things left for me to do on my ride are to change out the stock crankset, rear shifter and rear derailleur (short cage). Turning my sensor into a 1x9 drivetrain was another weight-saving must-have that I would probably recommend. Houston is pretty flat so I don't miss the extra gears.

    Here's one of mine. 2010 Pre-production Sensor 9r.

    We made some tweaks to the frame/rear triangle for the final production version, but I've been riding this bike for nearly two years, and it's my favorite in the stable. As it sits, it's at 26.7lbs for an X-Large.

    Very nice looking bike. I really dig my Force carbon Expert but thought about the Sensor a lot.
