I got the the bike on close out pricing so it was a smoking deal with money left over to customize/upgrade. With that said I don't believe that I will need to unless I feel the need to lighten things up. The bike performs well on the trail but can be a little squirrelly in the mud with the tires inflated to 15PSI, lower the pressure and everything is fine. The bottom bracket is the Achilles heel of the bike it seems, within 6 miles the BB had loosened and required a proprietary tool that E13 uses to make the adjustment by the LBS. The forms have multiple threads listing this as an issue but it has been working great since the adjustment. The 2x10 drive train is good and bad in my opinion. Yes it's heavy and more complicated moving parts to freeze up in the winter and some question the need for all that range of gearing. But from my point of view it comes in handy on the rail trails that I access to get to the single track that I like to ride. It's a trade off for me that I can accept now but when winter arrives I my question it's existence.
