    Jenson USA Chromag wideangle build Worth it?

    I am really considering the Chromag wideangle build on jenson usa. I really want a chromag frame and its the only complete ive seen around.

    The geo is kinda dated, it's a bummer they're running 1x with a 2x cassette/RD, and i'd much prefer shimano/fsa cranks over RF, but it's a solid build over all. Those elixirs have had the reservoirs enlarged and should work fine, and the fork is pretty solid. I'd upgrade to a 2x and enjoy my new long travel XC bike.
