    Looks great. Going to go for a 1x10 on mine too. Just waiting for my chainring and 40t-rex to arrive.

    Yours too! I debated for quite a while between the two colors. Its a toss up, both look very slick. I've been running 1x10 for a couple years now, and I would never go back to multiple chainrings. How is the ride with the thomson post?

    A touch bumpy to be honest. Could be dropper time for me

    You should check out the syntace p6 hiflex or niner RDO posts. I switched from an alloy post to a p6 last year and the difference is noticeable, not so much at first but after an hour you'll notice a pleasant lack of back/arse pain. They're expensive but worth it IMO
