Yep the Gran Mal completes the Trio. Now the Vagrant and the Bottlerocket have a new big brother. This thing is going to be amazing. Feels similar to the BR in a few ways but with more travel..

Final weight came out to 43.75 lbs. Not bad considering my Demo was up over 48lbs...

Yep I run Gripshift on the GM and BR - both with 8-speed. The Vagrant is a single-speed. I actually love Hayes brakes (except El Caminos) I have them on all 3 bikes...

I just never liked thumb/finger shifters which started from the XC race days. I don't have an issue with mis-shifts and I feel more natural having the ability to shift without moving my hand/fingers....
