    I bought the frame-set as a 2008 leftover brand new a couple months ago, and built it up. Most parts are ones that came with the bike originally, but I upgraded the brakes, shifters, stem, bar, pedals, and went tubeless. I am done spending money on this bike, but built it for a fraction of original cost. It rides amazing. I ride it a lot, and despite it looking new, I do not baby it.

    I have not used many different brakes on a MTB, only used XT brakes before these. These are the Marta SL Mag with the new Storm rotors. They are very powerful compared to what I am used to, are quiet, and very very light. I really like them. Thanks...

    So you've got rid of those Mavic Crossmax SLR in the end. Smart move,I'm loving my Roval Traverse EL,they roll like silk and take a lot of abuse .
    I've had Crossmax SLRs on my old Lapierre Xcontrol 910,great wheels but very fragile rear hub.

    Can I ask you wich Command Post you've got ? 100 mm ? I think it's time I pull the trigger on one.

    I ride pretty aggressive so i kept snapping spokes on the Crossmax which arent cheap. I ended up selling them to a lady who rides mellow XC stuff. Im really loving the Traverse so far. They seem to be a much stronger and durable wheel.

    The Command post is the 125mm version. It is off a 2012 SJ Elite and has the gray lever that can be used as the grip clamp, unlike the aftermarket version that has a red lever and isn't grip compatible. The Command Post was by far the best upgrade the bike. I use it a ton each ride and it has made me a better all around rider and a lot faster.

    The fork is the DPA version. It climbs great in 150 mode and i only drop it for long steep switchback climbs. I prefer the dual air model but I wanted a black fork so the DPA was the only option. I got it on closeout so it was crazy cheap and if I ever have issues with it I will convert it to dual air. That being said it is a big improvement over the float 140. It is much smoother over small bumps and takes hits just as well as the float did. I did upgrade to a 15qr and that was a major difference. So much stiffer now and the front wheel tracks a lot better.

    Thanks, Dirt! I'm really digging it so far. The weather hasn't been very cooperative, but it looks pretty good sitting in the living room

    Haha no worries. I just saw someone post pretty much the exact same bike, I was wondering if it was you. Its a kind of message board where its like a forum but people vote posts up or down and they have sub sections for everything. You name it, its bound to be on reddit.
