get something like this from cdn tire. It has abrasion stick thing to scratch off the rust and paint on the other end
That wreckoning is a sexy beast of a bike! Id have looked at that if I hadnt picked up an Sworks E29 in the fall.
Interesting comment above re selling the DH rig after getting the E29. Maybe Im looking for bigger balls with a new bike but on the nasty steep and rough terrain (think some sections of 5th on Cypress), I feel that I could use a slacker bike. Granted, I pedal up BLT to get there so Im not sure how Id do that on a bigger bike than the E29, but I do find Im lacking some confidence on the nastiest sections.
get enduro 650b link on there
My GG AT2's are horrible on icy roads, but awesome in powder. They're the one size that isn't snow rated for some weird reason. Great improvement over the three gravel road flats I got on the stock tires though!
Isn't that pretty much every AT tire?
big block and not enough siping like proper winter tire
That´s good info!
JBV, glad you like the 1x11 XT - I´ll order a shifter+RD now.
And it works with your oval ring? =)
only problem is.. I don't know how to pull that pin out. They are often flush with the casing
I'm loving my xt 11spd as well. shifting is smooth and instant, trouble free so far
My SRAM X01 type 2.1 rear derailleur just broke.
The clutch didn't work anymore, so I thought myself super smart and tried the fix which always worked for my type 2 X01 from last year.
But they apparently improved the clutch in such a way that right this trick breaks it. And it still retains the ability to stop working after a couple of rides ;-)
The end of a tiny spring actually broke out of the plastic part near the clutch. And I really barely touched it with the allen key.
Long story short, I'll buy a XT 11spd RD and trigger for a lot less than the 200$ replacement SRAM RD. They are nice and light, but I personally had to warranty four! X01s and xx1s. Then I read how to repair them and cure the creaking and could live fine with that etc. But with this 2.1 iteration, you're stuck without self repair possibility.
So, DO NOT try to fix your 2.1 type clutch. Warranty it. Saves money ;-)
The XT 11spd doesn't seem as crisp shifting, but at least I expect it to be reliable.
type 2.1 has the pin. If you want to adjust the clutch, you'll have to pin the pull out before you crank the cap with 8mm allen key
