    PRO XCR for All Mountain?

    So I just acquired an XCR handlebar, stem and seatpost (for free) and would like to use 'em but it dawned on me when I got home that this is a XC component group.

    So the question is: do you fella's think it'll hold up? I don't do any super-aggressive riding and it'll be put on a Rocky Mountain ETSX that gets ridden in Illinois and Wisconsin - so no air time to be had.

    Do you think I'm better off selling 'em and trying to pick up parts that'll be better suited to 'harder' riding?

    If you're under 200 pounds anything you can ride on an ETSX will be fine for the XCR Pro components.

    If you're over 200 pounds but keep your wheels on the ground you should have no issues, but if you crash while attached to the bike, keep an eye on the parts that take the hits like bars and seatposts. Shimano always builds in a big safety margin on their products.
