    Excited about my new Ripley!

    Unfortunately it'll be another couple weeks until it can be built up. There's no riding this weekend in the Denver area anyway due to snow.

    Size large

    Beauty. I'd get that color combo, too. How are you building it up? Details, man!

    Thanks! I'm thinking about the XT build kit from Ibis. But maybe XO.

    Any recommendations?

    I don't want to start a war. This is my take and my take only. I have been riding Shimano for a long time. However, two of my current two bikes have scram, one XX and the road bike force. Personally I think XT is better than Sram XX, it's more crisp and more precise. My take only. X1 could be a different story. I don't feel (for me only) the jump up to XTR is worth it, xt is so good these days and bullet proof. I have had XTR on a number of bikes. I did take the "savings" on not getting xtr and am selling the Arch wheels any upgrading to so ceramic Specialized Roval Carbons.

    Anybody want to buy some brand new Arch's? Never used, I don't have them yet, $425? I have Arch's on my current bike, they are great wheels, especially for the money. A little bit of flex but pretty light and pretty cheap for quality wheels.

    I wish they could fedex the frames from china, I am waiting on a Medium!
