Bet that sucker is light...and fast! Post up on how you like that new SRAM drivetrain. Seems that bike is made for it!

I love the Sram XX group thus far. I've only had the bike for a week or so, but have raced a couple of town series races on it, and I've never been on a bike that climbs so well.

I'm racing the Mountain States Cup short track here in Snowmass tomorrow, then the XC on Sunday. Shaved five and half minutes off my personal best on the course in our town series race earlier this week - not sure whether it's me being in better shape or the bike - more than likely a little of both.

The ease of going from the little ring to the big ring amazes me every time I shift. I was an XO guy previous to XX, and it is WAY better than XO.

Just won the Mountain States Cup Short Track Cat. 1 race, so yeah, the bike is fast...looking forward to tomorrow's XC race. Not sure how I'll do, but no stress after today.

Buddy on my team (Yeti-sponsored) is building a very similar one right now. Full Sram XX, but I think he'd building with Stans Race 29er wheels. Just as light, not quite as bling...should be awesome though. I'll post images as soon as he finishes it.

Wonder if there's a set of white bars out there? Still want to test that XX stuff somewhere. Working on my third million...gave up on the first two.:thumbsup:

Yep, I'm a fan of the Ritchey parts...might still swap the current bar for a flat version. XX is awesome, and it's incredible how well it works - even shifts under full load. Also had the fork/steerer tube cut down yesterday now that it's dialed, and looks a lot better.

Next up - Yeti ARC-X with Sram Red/XX mix...and EDGE composites components. Should be sweet.
