    Freshly Updated RFX

    Just moved to back in to UT and started a new job, and after all that I finally got the refresh finished up on my 08 RFX.



    Updates include:
    XX1 1x11 rear derailleur, cassette, and shifter.
    XTR hollow tech crankset with wolf tooth cycling 30T front ring
    2014 Fox Float on the front
    Avy Chubby on the back

    Rode it last night for the first time, and besides forgetting to torque down the crank arm completely and getting into a 10 and 2 position for a bit, it is a great setup. It's clocking in at about 29lbs, and my fat ass is clocking in at about 210 (to be addressed). Hope everyone is out there getting after it this weekend.

    Sub 30 coil RFX is a pretty respectable weight. Bike looks good!

    Curious to hear your impressions of the drivetrain. I've been thinking of doing something similar.

    Sub 30 with flats and coil, but it is a small.

    Well I only have one ride on it so far but it's awesome. One of the biggest selling points, which sounds bizarre, is how unbelievably quiet it is. I love it. Keep an eye on chainlove as the XX1 has been popping up on their piece meal. I bought a chain guide, but until I throw the chain the 30t is so small I don't see me ever needing it.

    That looks like a really good modern build. Just like Flipinidaho's build. Really sweet!

    I saw my old RFX on the trails last week. Haven't seen it for the past 2 years and has had 2 owners during that time. That was one bike I wish I never sold.

    I've been thinking about buying a spare frame. Will any size frame rear linkage be interchangeable?
