Well, I have my bike and now the front range is covered with melting snow with more expected on Tuesday. Why couldn't have come in last week for those sixty degree temps. Anyway, here is a quick shot of the bike on my front walk. The biggest issue with taking a picture in this snow is that it is so bright outside.
I ordered the standard Race build which is XT with an XTR rear. I upgraded to the wheels to a lightweight XC set built on DT Swiss 250 hubs with DT XR 400 rims and bladed spokes. The wheelset weighs about 1430 grams.
Did the DT tubeless conversion, but using Effeto Maripossa's Cafe Latex inside. Tires are S-Works Bliss2 Captains with a 2.1 up front and a 2 in the back. Tires are so thin that it took two days of latex bleeding through the sidewalls before they fully sealed. I know lots of people who ride these, but I know they are prone to sidewall tears.
Rear wheel has a 12mm thru axle and the front has a 15mm thru axle.
Now if things would only dry out a bit, I will add a ride report.
