    Special Blend -- what cassette comes with it?

    Just placed an order for a special blend for my GF. For the low price, I'm well-aware of the build kit cost-savers like the Deore shifters...but I'm curious what rear cogset comes w/ it.

    Figure I'll order an XT cogset now, since that typically saves a lot of weight vs a budget all-steel cassette.

    also: what's the Ibis bar width?

    Crankset: Shimano SLX Triple
    Bottom Bracket: Shimano SM-BB70, 68/73mm
    Front Derailleur: Shimano SLX 10spd
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano SLX 10spd
    Shifters: Shimano Deore trigger shifters 10spd
    Wheelset: Mavic Crossride 26 disc
    Tires: Kenda Nevegal 26x2.1
    Brakes: Avid Elixir 1 Hydraulic Disc Brakes (rotors included)
    Brake Levers: Avid Elixir 1 hydraulic
    Headset: Cane Creek 40
    Handlebar: Ibis
    Stem: Ibis
    Saddle: WTB
    Seat Post: Ibis

    Tom from Ibis posting. The Special Blend is spec'd with a Shimano CS-HG62 cassette. Which is the equivalent of SLX. Please keep in mind that the Special Blend kits spec's may change depending on availability and other factors.

    Mine came with a deore rear cassette - XT swap was the first thing I did..

    Not sure on bar width but they're narrower than my USE Atom risers that are 685mm
