    Thank you! I appreciate it!! I guess it's just not the 5000$ S-works or anything haha. In Moto it's all about the nice stuff, so it's kinda cool to be able to enjoy the sport just as much With an entry-level bike

    True that! Some of the bikes I've seen on here are ridiculous! Such nice bikes! Ride it like its stolen is pretty much the only way to go, right?!

    Not to worry, we can help you sink $5000 into it if it'll make you feel better

    There are definitely things I would like to do to this bike, but not sure anything near 5k! Looking forward to tapping into the knowledge on this site for sure when it comes time to upgrade!

    Mx is all about fancy decal kits.
    You can't hide behind any of that when your buddy puts the hammer down out there in the woods.
    Get it set up good for you, and yes, ride it like its stolen.

    My new GT Helion Elite with my old Outpost, Love this thing such a great ride!
    Only changes have been Maxxis Ardent tyres and swapped to a Truvativ 50mm headstem but stay tune for more upgrades!!!!
    Some Sram shifters and derailiers maybe as the standard Shimano stuff is a bit clunky and slow to change.

    Too bad I ditched the Shimano front derailleur with its SRAM shifter, but at least there're still Shimano pedals on my SRAM cranks. A lot of people talk about promoting global harmony and peace in our time, but precious few of us actually walk the walk...

    heh heh heh...SRAM cranks, shimano pedals, SRAM shifters and derailleurs along with shimano hubs on my main bike...SRAM shifting hardware, dura ace wheels and umpteen year old 737's on my cross...

    long live global harmony...

    however, i'm looking at replacing my ageing x7 crankset with an XT since i'm seeing attractive deals on the internets...

    Yeah, SRAM shifters are more natural to me, and I straight up dislike the feel of Shimano brakes, but it's got nothing to do with the brand name, just personal preference. I have my own set of issues, but getting caught up in brand loyalty isn't one of them.

    XT cranks were my initial choice, but I started liking the idea of the RF Cinch's option of direct mount chainrings, and ended up with the SRAM GX 1400 because it was cheaper. I mean...better. It must be better, 'cause that's what I have

    I actually do believe you missed some important other things to complete the job. Like new pedals and crank set. Rear cassette, new breaks and rotors.

    You'll love it... DHF/DHR2 (f/r) and DHR2/DHR2 are the best tire combos ever for my riding style/terrain. Dunno why the DHF at the same size is so much heavier though...

    Got a Race Face NW 30T ring and some new 5.10's yesterday. Haven't had time to try either other than around the block but looking forward to seeing how the 1x10 drivetrain does.

    Curious to hear your opinion on how the chainring feels when pedaling hard. I feel like my 32T ring exaggerates the stomping or mashing feel as opposed to a smooth circular spin. When my oval 30T comes in I hope it reduces that feeling.

    My brother's first mountain bike! I can't wait to deliver it to him this weekend! He's anxious as can be. I was almost more excited about his purchase than when I got my own, always wanted to get him into riding. Trek X Caliber 8 '15. Got it for 300 off original price. Should be a great starter for him.
