I've owned and upgraded a 2011 Trek X-Cal 3x10 setup for the last 3 seasons that I've lived in Boise. The thing cost plenty and has been costing me ever since in replacement parts. Yesterday I'm cruising down a particularly rough section of trail and I go take one gentle pedal stroke down hill and completely F my drivetrain. The chain came off and somehow got set funny in the derailleur. I get off and the chain is twisted beyond repair. The derailleur is bent and bare metal burrs are sticking out everywhere. I had to push the thing for about 2 miles where I couldn't roll.
The X-cal gets stripped of its Reba RL, tubeless wheels and various carbon parts tonight!! All will be moved to the SS. The X-Cal shall sit bare-framed and neglected. Joining the SS only ranks. Eff that effing 3x10 piece of crap!
