Hi guys and gals,
The project for this winter is to upgrade my trusty steed. She is a Klein Adroit. A beautiful hard tail and she deserves better components. Right now I have the stock fork (Manitou SX Carbon), full SRAM X9 drive train and shifters, mixed wheels, Avid single digit 7 Ti brakes and levers, a Raceface XC crank set. I put this together just to get back out there and ride, but now it is time to do it up right.
I mainly ride XC and single track. Weigh 185 lbs. I have decided on a Magura Durin fork but I am not sure if I will go with the 80mm of 100mm. I have to measure fork to crown and see if/ how much each will affect the ride. I am also going with the Magura Marta SL brake set up. I know that these are expensive, but they are high quality and light.
For the drive train, should I go full XTR or SRAM X0. Also I am looking at the FSA Carbon crank. Or, should I go XTR or something else? For wheels, I was thinking of having Dave from speeddream wheels build me a set of wheels. If some one has a wheel suggestion please throw it out there.
Basically, I want to upgrade my fork, drive train, and wheels, while shedding some weight (although, sadly most weight will be shed from my wallet).
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
