    2011 Alpine Trail Build Update

    Things are coming together! Brakes are next. Just replaced the flexy terrible Dart 3 with a 2012 ox Float. Kashima Coating rules! No such thing as stiction anymore. Drivetrain has gone all X-9. X-0 shifters, and a brand new X-9 15mm front thru-axle hub for incredible stability. I am totally stoked! Loved the geometry of this 29r from the minute I rode it. These upgrades were much needed. I am very happy!

    Thanks for looking!

    Smart looking in white. Some of the new 2012 models are similar and are growing on me. Interesting seat though!

    After you get some miles on that beast, i'm interested to hear how those X9 hubs and that Raceface cranksets hold up and perform. I keep finding those two items for extremely tempting prices, it makes me wonder what's the catch, if there's any...

    Great looking bike so far and I have to agree with Gvs, interesting seat!

    Last piece. Narrower saddle. I have lost enough weight to ditch the old one. This bike is done!
