    No rub, they give a correct gaps. Don't remember details, but I tried to follow the instructions for installation.. maybe chainline incorrect in your case ? Сheck the spacers under bb's caps.
    Anyway, Shimano XT is better choice for quality and trouble-free cranks, if price is important, IMO

    Nice Sallen - What's the gearing on your T2, kind of hard to tell just by the photo 1x10 with 11-36?

    I really like the idea of swapping my 2x9 for a 1x on the T2 but not sure if my legs could handle some of the steeper sections around here. Is that a 34t up front? Thanks - it's got me thinking.

    Why would you want to go to one gear in the front? Are you dropping chains that often?
  • 12-17-2012
    Sallen4520
    No dropped chains I just like the simplicity of it. Less moving parts means less chance of somthing messing up 32t ring up front lets u climb

    Less is more, simplicity is attractive. But steep and tricky climbs impossible with single front gear, sadly.

    It's not bad Climbing tecky rocky rooty stuff and where I'm from that's 80 percent of the trails unfortunately. The bike is a lot of fun on the downs and climbs. Yea a 24 t granny would make it easier. But riding the single 32t has made me a better rider for sure.

    Am I Cheating?
    Because after the second ride on my new Tracer 275 today, it felt like I was cheating. The thing just floats downhill, begging for more speed. Think I've got the suspension dialed in pretty close now. Love the new XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur. Makes for a nice quiet ride, and doesn't seem to scratch the frame. As you can see, I'm still running my White Brothers Loop set at 150mm (which is what I used on my Ventana El Bastardo at 140mm). I'll be replacing it with an X-Fusion Slant when they come out in February sometime. I've been running X-Fusion on my 650B hardtail (Soma B-Side) for a couple of years, and they work great. I want to support them because they were hip to 650B early on, and their fork is almost a quarter pound lighter than a Fox 34. Current build comes in at 28lbs, 14oz.

    Hi
    As an example, my method of routing here:

    This worked well until I change reverb on a LEV

    Thanks for thos epics mate.

    I think I might try running my cable exactly like yours but through the suspension link so I can use the under TT hose mounts.

    Purely as I dont want the hose getting caught in my coil.

    Will hopefully not kill anybody in attempting to bleed and cut the hose tonight :)

    As you can see, I used the reverb and ссdb together. They do not interfere with each other with these routing, so you can just try it. Before the cutting procedure etc :)

    Wow, I totally missed your 2nd picture!

    It's hard to tell, is the reverb hose run through your suspension black pivot point when used with the CCDB?

    I only run 1 x 10 so I wont have the luxury of using the little holder to keep the hose to a rear mech hose. (Thus letting the hose dangle a bit close to the spring for my liking)

    Routings on a both pics are equivalent. Just see the first pic for another view.
    And yes, plastic holders is the key here.
    1x10, i miss.. In your case, I would try to hold the reverb hose on the left,
    beside the rear brake line.
    damn google translate :)

    Nice setup GS ^^ If I only could have one bike for all types of mountain riding it would be done very very similar. I like the Saint brake choice, I don't think it's overkill at all if you really like to ride the T2 hard - good job.

    Thank you mate! :)

    The Saint group set is probably the best choice I've made, the weight isn't that much I'm the grand scheme of things over XTR, but the performance is so noticeable.

    My Tracer 275 weighs 28lbs, 14oz., so basically, just under 29. Build includes Thomson seat post (not a dropper), and 2x10, XTR cranks, XT derailleurs.
