    I have a steel one, love it! Went tubless with some Vanhelgas for winter. The cassette that comes stock sucks and changed that out went 1x10 and put some Jones bars on it. Could not be happier, if I could justify the cost I'd go carbon rims to drop more rotating mass that would be where I'd start.....

    Ya the I has the same drive train (cranks, derailleurs, shifters and cassette), a 135 spaced rear though and cable disk brakes, which honestly the hydro's on mine leave alot to be desired....

    So I would recommend a different cassette, had failure on one of the rings on mine, and go tubeless, beyond that carbon is light, but pricey!

    What are the available options of carbon forks for the charge cooker maxi? Would an on-one fatty fork work with it?

    You are better off with a 450 mm Serma.
