    Really? Isn't that a big jump in ring sizes to shift well?

    My old 22-36 set-up was pretty slow and I needed the front derail. setup perfectly.

    Mr Lawrence, feedback on XX1 would be appreciated. How do you find it? What q-factor are you using?

    Thanks

    So far, it's working as advertised.

    I've had all the gear range I've needed for climbing or descending. Shifting is quick and precise.

    Yesterday, we rode down National and Geronimo on South Mountain in Phoenix. Fast, rocky gnar, lots of small drops. There was no noise from the drivetrain, and the chain stayed on perfectly.

    I did hit the chainring on rocks a few times, making me wonder if I'll want a bash guard of some sort, even though it seems I won't need a chain guide. Those chainrings are expensive.

    Q factor is 168.

    Great, thanks for the feedback. What kind of bash guard would work best?

    Does the Chilcotin come with a Quick Release for the seatpost as standard equipment?

    Not sure. The odd 76mm BCD on XX1 means most of the standard bash ring options like the Gamut I usually use won't fit.

    Nope, not that I know of. Just get a Chromag QR and call it good.

    The only bash guard with no guides I know of is the MRP XCG.

    First off, the chromag one is nice, esp if you will keep a QR clamp with a dropper, as it has an allen that you can be sure to torque to specc.

    Secondly, my buddy's new Transition came with a non-QR clamp that has a nifty little cable-router for the dropper post. Pretty cool little bit, saves you from having to zip-tie on a routing guide.

    Thanks Sleevem. I found this: MRP AMG and XX1 mini review

    You could take off the top guard if you feel you don't really need it?

    I got the rear shock in yesterday as well as the fork. I have about 30min of ride time so no meaningful reports yet but it feels lively. The air setup is nice but I can already tell I dont think I will be going back.

    Yep, thinking about selling my RP23. No desire to put it back on the bike, even for XC pedally stuff.

    Welcome to the Avy club!!! I'm confident you will really love the Avy'd shock. (I remember trying to talking you into going Avy and bypassing your old shock.) After a few rides you can join me and the others trying to convince people that an Avy'd shock is the way to go!

    YMMV, but I found the Avy'd shock super-easy to dial in (and figure out). One or two clicks on a dial changes things so noticeably that even I (an insensitive lug) "mastered" tuning the Avy'd shock. Now I can adjust the shock on fly (it only takes one or two clicks) to optimize it for climbing or descending. (I'm not a set-and-forget type person.)

    You'll also learn why some of us support Avalanche Racing Products with such passion. (Craig is a great guy with a great product.) At first, I really wondered if some of our fellow posters were "paid pumpers" (i.e. received a kick-back for endorsing Avy), but I have learned differently--it has cost me a hell of a lot of money to become an "Avy Advocate".

    Kudos!!!

    Yes, I need much more time on it but initial impressions are good. The fork will be going to avy as well. 2013 season is gonna be awesome!

    Do yourself a favor and remove the lower roller on your chainguide. With a clutch derailleur it is unnecessary.

    Nice. If I hadn't done XX1, my next choice would have been the 30T Bling Ring with XT like you did.

    Not needed at all. It's just two bolts from the backside holding it on. I took it off of mine, though not entirely on purpose

    Ahhh, I left mine on. Took the roller off and it looked funny with that extension from taco. So just put the pulley/roller back on.

    Nice! Love the color! I just put a 36t bling ring on my Delirium, thinking of a 34? Let us know if you spin out with the 30, especially in Texas!

    Thanks. I am planning on it giving the float a shop. I opted for the CTD hoping it will work. I can always get it pushed.

    I'll defiantly give you a shout. I am traveling the next three weekends but may try a few after work rides.

    My logic on the 30T was a 30T with 34 cassette would get me the same as as 32x36. Plus the bling ring was sold out in pretty much everything over a 30T so it was not an immediate option.

    Quick question...when I view my post I seem to see two of the three pictures I posted and the pictures change depending on which computer I use and browser. If I go to edit post then all three picture files are listed. Never had problems posting pics in the past and all three met the size requirements. I was wondering if other members see three pics on my post or just two?

    There should be one with the complete bike and then two close up shots.

    I don't see any of them, just an empty "Attached Images" box.

    Hi Lobo, very nice bike and good weight. First build I've seen with Syntace MX35 wheels. What do you think of them?

    Thanks, I will drop another 1 lbs shortly,
    The wheels looks great, I didn't test them yet but I'm sure they will do the job.

    Feels amazing, few of my friends are on the BOS as well and we all agree we would never change it for any other brand. Can't say a bad word about BOS, I own a bike shop and we distribute the suspensions.

    Give me a few weeks. I have a Chilly with CCDBa on order and also a XX-1 Groupo Hope to crack less than 30lbs.

    Hi Pescecane!

    Thank you for considering the Chilcotin as your next bike!

    To answer your questions:

    • Medium frame size for sure.
    • Frame weight with Fox CTD-Adjust (200mm i2i) is ~7.5 pounds or 3.4 kg.


    Cheers!
