I can't wait to see how close we end up to eachother...I'm building an X29er 3...Stan's crest wheelset with American Classic Hubs will be built this week by my wheelbuilder...Ordered the beginnings of my complete SRAM XX groupo today. I went with the Giant 620mm carbon flat bar. When you get a weight let me know I'm very curious

I can't wait to see how both of your builds turn out! I'm deciding which X29er to get myself. I'm likely going to get a 2 and upgrade the wheelset.

here is a close up of the wrap



It is a harder plastic wrap that I got from Tree Fort

I could not find a great solution but like this set up the best. I wish more companies would include really nice ones from the factory like the integrated Tallboy rubber one.

Also, today was the first ride on the bike and to be honest it amazed me. I am coming from a 2009 Anthem X1 which I loved but this was on a different level!

I went down to my LBS today and slapped down a giant stack of loot and the rest of my XX stuff will be here later this week (some tomorrow and some Friday) and the wheels will be done this Friday. Saturday this was there at the house for me .:thumbsup:


Getting so excited I can barely stand it

The stem will be upgraded but not until I get fitted on the bike, in case he wants to change length or angle....not sure what to yet....

Pedals....leaning towards the new Shimano XTR SPD's
