    pretty interesting about the slx shifter.

    I just went 38t 1x9 on my ht of similar weight. I can't believe he can crank that 38t outta the gate like that. Well, I can believe it... just my knees and legs hurt thinking about me trying it!

    Lopes is such a beast

    Glad to know I wasn't the only one who chose the SLX shifter over the more expensive XT/XTR for the 1-at-a-time gear-dumping

    just needs to get his pedals dialed. He became unclipped and it seemed to irk him and took too much outta him towards the end of eliminator 2nd race.
