    Mostly finished the black XC, waiting for some snow to melt so I can take it out tune it and take her in the mountains. Mostly XT drive train ditched both the regular deore and the XT rear derailleur and decided to try SLX. I took it down the street and it actually rides pretty good, the forks are really terrible but will work for now.

    My Saracen, about half the parts are the originals, the rest are whatever the previous owner could find to cobble it together, as far as I can tell.

    Still watching the snow slowly melt, and tweaking in the garage. Banshee is sub-29# and all parts dependable, durable, comfortable for me and my riding.

    30t front ring and 11-36 ten speed rear cogs ought to work quite nicely as a single ring setup. Light, simple, gives the range I need and want for around here. Guide bits cobbled together from a Blackspire Stinger guide and upper guide replacement slider from an e.13 Freechucker guide. I've got a lower Stinger with roller setup that can be easily added, but isn't going on unless this proves to not be enough guide. Why add more complication/drag/weight to the system if it isn't needed?

    Swapping to tubeless setups last year gave me the epiphany of running skinnier/lighter/less beefy tires. I can run the same, or lower pressure, have great traction, less rolling weight and resistance with less worry of pinch flats. YMMV, but it has worked well for me. Maxxis ADvantage 2.1 rear/Minion 2.35 front. I'm not a huge guy.

    The Lyrik Solo Air here is still working quite well, and the stiffness rocks. When it dies, may swap for a Revelation or Sektor with a taller bottom headset to regain the same geometry, but have a slightly lighter front end. The Rev on my hardtail is very nice, but just a touch less stuff than the Lyrik - not sure if that is a trade-off I'm willing to make on this bike.

    The Gravity Dropper post stays as well, just with a lighter seat. Have swapped back to a regular post for a ride or two, and I can't do it. The ease and convenience of dropper posts is here to stay on my rides, despite the weight penalty.

    ^Care to explain to a newb what the advantage is in putting road tires & a road fork on an otherwise mountain bike? Looks cool as hell, but I can't figure out any advantage other than strength, which would be ruined by the weak road tires.
    just a n00b with an ego

    I understand where your coming from. I am mainly just a road rider that like's some citylink bike path's and have a nice roadbike but the over the last 2 year's developed a bone spur in my shoulder . It put's me out of action for 2 to 3 week's if i ride it.
    Because of the wider handle bar's and hand position's on a mtb it seem's fine or bearable at least.
    I have found riding a hybrid (that's debaitable with some people) more enjoyable and comparing it with my roadbike interesting.
    Sure a road bike is faster but not by much and that depends on the rider alot i've got no trouble keeping with roadies.
    The control of a hybrid or mtb is far better around town or on bike path's when it get's a'bit rough.
    Whenever there's a hill it feel's more natural on mtb to get a higher gear standup and just mash the pedal's.(it's the bar width and hand position's again)
    Also they are cyclocross fork's longer than road fork's (410mm axle to crown) and more durable, so i can put nobby's on and hit the dirt if i wanted to. Would have to be cyclocross tyre's though as there 29er wheel's, clearance issue's.
    I think it would be interesting to start a new thred on these issue's i'm sure there's a thousand different view's on this.

    I would love to ride one of your bikes. I love your sportster, and this one is really interesting also. Seems like we have a similar bike interest...

    New to me. 9-foot Western ProPlow. Took it out for a spin twice in the last 12 hours, since winter came back and buried our early spring.
