Hi folks.
yep, am getting in 12 months early but am riding the 2016 BC Bike race and wondering if anyone has ridden it on a SOLO?
Have an alloy rig with specs below but am keen to lighten/modify it a bit to suit the terrain (hills!!) etc., so after advice on anything that others have had experience with. And yep, the rider (me) will be getting a complete overhaul as well in the 12 months... ;)
Specs:
Large alloy frame
SRAM XO1 1x11 drivetrain (32t up front)
SRAM RAIL wheel set (tubeless)
KS Lev dropper (internal)
XTR pedals
Renthal Fat Bar Lite (760mm)
XT brakes (180/160 front/rear)
ESI grips

Cheers,

JW

I have ridden the Cumberland stage on a 5010, they do it separately every year as the "Coal Town Classic". I loved it, the stage there is all fire road climbing though, it may have been a bit tougher slugging it up singletrack but regardless I had a great time. I run mine with a 160mm pike too so decending was awesome. It drops to 130mm for climbing. I think the 5010 is built for bc bike race.

Cheers,
