    With the caliber of the rest of the build, why settle on XT brakes?

    (Not saying it was the wrong choice, but it doesn't seem like budget was much of a concern here, so curious why XT there and on the cranks)

    XT brakes aren't just "good enough", they are what I use as a bench mark for brakes right now. I haven't found anything that is significantly better in power or modulation and I've watched guys at races who switched mid-season to something else all come back to XT/XTR brakes. XTR trade some finnicky'ness for less weight, but otherwise are just as awesome. I have both XT and XTR brakes on my bikes, and expected to see XTR on this build. Regardless, you have an awesome build here. My car likely cost about 1/3rd of this bike though!

    My friend has the Trek SS with the Bonty carbon fork and SRAM carbon wheels. It's light and super super stiff but the fork beat him up so much on the single track and he changed to a Sid. I'm sure ENVE fork is better but I wondering if it's also the stiff aluminum frame with carbon wheel combo? Especially if the rims aren't wide. I'm planning a build with that same ENVE fork and cockpit but was thinking I would go for some wider alloy rims to take some of that bite.

    first impressions - very responsive, stiff (rear tire 25lbs, front tire 22lbs), climbs very well, bars are 27" and just right, XT brakes superb, enve seat clamp slipped a bit (as did I), and tires were good not great (have some ralphs to try out later). It is a very quiet bike and C King rear hub ratchet isn't as loud as my older C King on the IF SS.

    Warning - ENVE water bottle cages are VERY tight and difficult to get bottles out. I'll wait to see if they break in or try different bottles.

    The 20t gearing seems like too much b/c it goes uphill so easily and may step back down to 19.

    Great fun.

    Thanks for all of the nice comments too.
    Awesome! Glad to here it's getting dirty and scratched!

    The bike looks awesome and stiff is good. It is premium Cannonade CAAD aluminum and premium ENVE carbon so I'm sure it rides as good as it looks.
