Halfway into February and no hardtail thread yet? Blasphemy!
I'll kick it off then, still on the old Chromag Surface, no boost or other nonsense, clean and simple :) It had a bit of a makeover since 2019 marked the year I finally got a full suspension in the form of a Transition Smuggler and I initially used most of my Chromag parts. Slowly built this back up over the winter, somewhat of a buy/sell budget build but came out pretty well and stoked to have it back together!
I went a little lighter on the build since this will now mostly be used for longer, mellower training rides. Changed the Fox36 - 150mm up front to a MRP Ribbon Air set to 130mm for now. Probably going with some lighter, faster tires for spring and summer as well, it'll be more of a XC rig for now albeit a capable one. Might even try some bikepacking?!
Hope we get this thread rolling again, always fun to see the hardtails out there!
