XT/XTR build. REALLY SHOULD say-XT and XTR deraileur
1) I hate the XT shifter!
2) Dt Swiss XMC-1501 wheels. 36 point engagement(seems poor) DT competition® race straightpull spokes, DT Prolock Squorx ProHead alum. 30mm internal rim front and rear.
3) Race Face Next R 32t Crankset (any where near the quality of X01?)
4) Shimano bottom bracket vs SRAM DUB. clear winner or looser?
5) XT 8120 4 piston brake 180mm rotor Vs SRAM G2 RSC 4 piston 180mm( I like real brake fluid)
SRAM PRO X01 build full X01!
1)I Like the SRAM shifter far far better.
2) I think the X01 cassette may be longer laster, lighter, better vs XT
3) Reynolds Blacklabel 309/289 w/ Industry Nine Hydra hub 30mm F 28mm R - 29" 15x110. Sapim c-xray bladed spokes! (is this a bit or a lot better wheel set?)
I think these spokes are stronger and cut through sticks flipped into wheel
better than the DT SWISS Comp spokes?
Carbon rim durability and ride quality vs DT SWISS?
Hub-bearing quality, durability of engagement system, flange vs DT SWISS?
AVAILIBILITY of parts for the wheels?
Me: 175 pounds 6'1" Cross Country to Trail Rider. Not taking it to bike parks or REDBULL RAMPAGE.
I will ride the Appalachian mountains region with it, Virginias, Pa., TN, etc.
Any ideas?
THANK YOU for you wisdom.
