    It's a super nice bike, specs are pretty Intense. For a hard tail I don't think it gets much nicer IMO. Only turn off is carbon (and the whole 7500$ thing) :p

    1x9: Dropping gears, not tears.

    So I'm currently running 2x9 with 22-32 upfront and 11-34 in the back.

    Imo they're both ok for what it is. I'd shoot for something with disc brakes tho imo and the grip shifters eeeeh. Could always offer 150 if you're that concerned
