Looking for a new bike. Side walk tested an sb5 and sb130. Initial impressions at the time a month ago were that I liked the sb5 better I think because the frame is less stretched out I am 5’8 with shorter arms.

Based on the above I was interested in the sb5.5 can’t find a good deal on the sb5 anymore. I was drawn to the competitive cyclist deal on the x01 build which was $4.7k. Then I found out they will swap components and give you credit for parts you swap. I feel like I am heading down the slippery slope on and old frame. Now I am over $6k.


My build is below. Should I go with this build or revert back to the x01 stock build on competitive cyclist for under $5k. Alternatively I could do the gx sb130 and make a few upgrades. I don’t want to stretch the x01 sb130 build.

Thanks for your input.

Will most of these components carry over to a new frame in 3 years or so? Or will the industry have adapted new “standards” by then.

I guess the big thing that comes to mind is spending $1k on I-9 wheels with the new hydra hubs.
