    Is the Arizona Knollyfest a private party or can a bunch of Crazy Canadians come too?

    I'm getting more and more converted to the idea of the 1x10. What's the reason for getting a 3x10 to convert to a 1x10; wouldn't a 2x10 make a cleaner conversion?

    I liked having the options of a bash guard and a granny ring in case I needed to go 2X10.


    There is a bash guard now available for XT M785 2X10, it costs $72.

    For those of you guys running 1X setups, what size chainring in the front?

    (edit: just noticed Wilks is running a 32T)[img]
    32t here as well, with 11-36 in the back.

    I was afraid of the 1x10 change over so I wimped out with the 28t and a 9-36 cassette. Now that I am more comfortable I am going to up the chainring size.

    I like that setup. I would spend most of my time in middle gears. Who makes a 9-36 cassette?

    Well.... most of the cassette is a SRAM PG1050, the bottom 4 cogs (9,11,13 &16) are made by Canfield to fit their micro-drive hub. Very slick set up.

    I've never seen crests on a all mtn / light freeride bike. I assume you're either light or not a hucker or both?

    Well... im not heavy (65kg) and it's an enduro (Super D) race oriented setup.
    It is not uncommon to see riders (including those who win) with mavic slr.

    Rigidity is not an issue but the sides are weak specially for the rear wheel.
    I changed the rear rim after almost 2 years of AM rides and more than 15 races

    Much better than a float (this vip'r was on my old Endorphin and i previously tested a dhx and a float on it)
    When I compare it to a fox, I wonder if there is oil in the fox

    The vip'r is less comfortable in cruising mode but when you push, the bike become more stable and secure.
    it does not sink on "backing" (?) than the bike is more dynamic.

    Of course she is
    She won some XC races when i was young and pretty in the 90'
    It's a confortable and light saddle ... no reason to change until his death

    Very nice. Maybe it is just the lighting but that black looks a little shinier than the other ones. Almost looks painted.

    Very good looking, nonetheless!!!! Congrats.
