Introducing an adapter into the chain isn't a problem with the Tanpan. From my experience it does not degrade the shifting. The SGS dereailleurs have a max capacity that is 8 teeth greater. With a...

If you're gonna switch out the RD and have 11-40, might as well get an 11 speed XT RD and Wolftooth Components Tanpan instead of the RX.

If you're going to replace the rear derailleur, might as well do it proper and get a Wolftooth components Tanpan and an SLX rear derailleur. Cost will be the same as a 105 R7000 GS and Roadlink.

I am running 11 speed 11-42 on my Renegade. But I didn't cut corners by using a roadlink. I had it set up with a Tanpan and 11 speed XT rear derailleur.

On a side note, I just picked up my...

The price difference between the Expat and Exploit is substantial. I don't think the Exploit is a good buy this year considering R7000 will be on next year's model and the levers are a substantial...

Yes, the $500 is more than worth it. I actually think they could have priced the Escapade higher relative to the Exploit, but they did not want to price a steel model higher than the lowest carbon...

Not sure if it was you who asked how the Expat compares to the Escapade after I upgraded the frame. Geometry between the 2 frames are a bit different in my size (48) due to the introduction of 650b...

I actually think the Escapade is the better value. The shifters on the exploit aren't the greatest. They're kind of like Shimano's beta test, hence the lack of 105 label. Just the shifters alone are...

There is more than just the group and brakes. The brakes are flat mount on the Exploit and the rear is mounted on the chainstay as opposed to the post mount seat stay mount on the Expat. Also, the...

Tires are 700c x 35 Schwalbe G One. Bike size is 48cm. In the smaller 44 and 48 sizes, these bikes come with 650b wheels stock for the 2018 models. This probably explains the reduced vertical...

I don't know if it is a manufacturing mistake or what. But there definitely is less clearance. The rear is fine. Fits the Same wheel, tire and fender combo from my 2016 Expat frame.

The 650b option is interesting. I'm planning on getting a set of 650b's for touring on the Jamis. Another thing to note is that my Expat fork had enough clearance to fit a 700x35 and a fender in...

Thanks. I'm in the US. Yes hubs are WI CLD. The Renegade Escapade is a new model to slot in above the Exploit. The frame is exactly the same and the Exploit, but the complete bike comes with Ultegra...

Yeah. I use the bike in the winter as a roadie. It helps during long climbs on when touring too.

Sweet. Thanks for sharing the picture. I love that crank and need one in 46/30 asap. The price is hard to swallow though. How's the front shifting with those chainrings? What size are they?

I don't see the point in carbon wheels unless the bike is a super weight weenie or aero build, of which the Renegade is neither. I say find a good local wheel builder. There are many options for a...

There's a new model for 2018, the Escapade. Pretty much the same as the Exploit, but with R8020. It sucks that they added a TA and flat mount brakes on the Exploit for 2017, but the Expat still has...
