    New Orange RFX

    Picture quality sucks but the bike is fantastic. Built specifically for a local trail (Oathill up five miles and then down rocky and loose). Especially happy with the overall ride quality and the 36/22 chainring set up is great.

    Nice. You even have a backup in case one breaks.

    You have really long legs and a short torso I bet.

    Orang + silver = nice.

    Looks great! Glad to hear you like the 22 / 36 as I think that's the route I will be taking with mine. I built mine with the stock Gravity Light 22 / 32, and was planning on riding it as is for a ride or two then switch to 22 / 36. My first ride on it will be this weekend.

    Question. . .any shifting issues with 22 / 36? Do you have XT chainrings and chain?

    rfx lowdown

    THe backup- Made the 5spot lighter (wheelset and fork)- more xc/trail oriented

    High seatpost- 32" inseam + xc background. My friends give me crap all time but it was I am used to.

    36/22- no shifting issues so far. Raceface middle- sram chain. Good range- less overlap in gears. I think Shimano is about to introduce a SLX crankset that features 36/22 with a bashguard so I figured the 14 difference would still work. .

    I was expecting a rash of shyte for building it too light/ no flats, but the it is perfect for what I wanted: a bike that could still do a long climb and but offered a boost in confidence/fun factor for rocky/steep descents.
