Older Trek Elite 9.9 with a mix of old and new stuff. Currently 20.8 pounds as shown.
"Granny gear?" We have no such word in our language. Gearing is 11-32 with a 32-44 up front. Tubeless was a biggie, I'm tired of pinch flats (or running excessive tire pressure to prevent them).
The remote fork lockout was also high on my list of wanted features
For me, the big functionality jumps here are (1) going to tubeless so I don't pinch-flat, and (2) gaining a remote fork lockout. I could've lived without disc brakes for XC racing, but they sort of come with the package these days.
Next upgrades in the pipeline: XTR Race pedals arriving this week. At some point, I'll also get an XTR Race 44-30 crankset, 10sp chain, SRAM XG-999 cassette, and probably Rocket Ron 2.25" tires to take it down to around 19.5 pounds with crazy acceleration.
The engine has lost about 5 pounds and 1 inch off its waistline since the start of the year, and is looking to repeat that progress by mid-March, so I'm definitely on track this season
Still waiting first of my two new race bikes. First is carbon hardtail and the other is carbon full-sus I will post pictures as soon as I get it, maybe in two three weeks. They will be used in Finnish national xco and xc marathons and in some middle european xc/xcm races. I'm so thrilled now :thumbsup:
Just picked it up two days ago. Can't wait to get some decent trails for riding. I'll be swapping out the wheels to Stans Crests/American Classics to lose almost a pound. It is/will be interresting to see how many will be going with carbon 29ers this year.
Yeah, they have tubes. I will be swapping out the wheels, rotors, grips and going tubeless asap. AFAIK I have the first production model in America. Nice thing that Utah has the Scott distribution warehouse.
my bikes a pos compared to these bikes but i raced on it last season and placed 7th over all for the season in my class, and i plain on racing on it again:thumbsup:.

has a totally different build now but a basic idea:thumbsup:
So is Canyon going to distribute to the USA now? They used to sell directly to people here, but a year and a half ago the stopped shipping to the USA. Most people were thinking that meant they were working on a distribution deal for the USA.
Awesome that you guys got to keep the Magura brakes. Magura are great people!
