Planet Earth- Most Commonly the Wasatch Mts
Easy to use. Easy to Install. Light and small. What more could you ask for.
Please note that if you are running 11 spd Shimano/Sram you will need HED0032
Looks like a L/XL is available in the dropdown now.
Hey Jerico, The size chart is listed below the product description. I'd put you in a Medium
Easy to swap but they do wear fast. I prefer the swiss stop version for a little more life.
As you look through all these reviews you will notice this tire is definitely a Company Favorite and has been for year. For good reason, this tire has been the choice of CC for everything from the Forests of Little Rock to the Mountains and Deserts of UT. It handles most every condition, holds up to the sharpest rocks and rolls as fast as anything else on the market. We all ride and don't agree on much, but this is the tire of choice. That alone speaks volumes. 5 stars!
If you're afraid of cuts or punchures, go with the TNT version. A couple grams is worth it.
Jasp, Everyone is different in warmth and intensity level but I would way this would be a good jacket for the 30s but if you end up on extended climbs in the mounts you might end up using that full zipper fairly quickly. Overall its a killer piece of equipment for your collection.
If you get caught in the occasional mist these might be okay, but steady rain will be a bit much. Below is a link to our wet weather collection. The Castelli Nanoflex and the Pearl Izumi Amfib are favorites for the wet.
Victor, I'm a 32x 32 and I wear a medium but they are snug as they should be. If you are a larger 32 you might consider going with a large. Really, you could probably make both work well.
This is a 19mm rim with 28 spokes, I'd use it more as a XC wheel with maybe a little trail. If your light, it might take a 4-5 footer if you take the wrong line but I wouldn't go looking for them. I think you're looking for something more like the X1900. All DT swiss wheels are convertable to XX1 with the XD driver body.
Fork, Brakes, headset, seapost, seatclamp are all included.
DI2 will work, but it needs to e run Externally. Definitely not as clean
This frame is truly RDO. While its not the smoothest or most comfortable 29er I've owned, It's definitely the fastest. To me, The CYA suspension rides like a hardtail but takes the edge off the largest bumps. I found I needed about 10% sag to keep from harsh bottom outs but after some research the shock is set of lighter riders. If you're average to large, do yourself a favor and tune the rear shock with a volume reducer kit (cause air pressure to ramp up faster)
Still Loving these knickers!
I have hundreds of miles on this bike now and from day 1 I can say its the best I've ridden- and I've owned more bikes than i can remember in my last 15 years of riding. From the solid, stable geometry, to the bullet proof construction and design, there is absolutely nothing I would change on this bike,
Longest ride to Date on the bike: 73 miles with 13k ft of climbing.
After taking this bike for a spin in the Wasatch Mts around SLC, I was thoroughly impressed. After riding Bronson, which caters to the lift service rider, I found the 5010 to be what everyone was hoping for in the Bronson- a fast, nimble trail bike longing for a day of climbing and descending. I'd rate the Bronson 80% down and 20% up but the 5010 definitely splits the ride more evenly without sacrifice - maybe 55%/45%. Tweener wheels, welcome to the stable!
1876g for the 29"
See the last paragraph - conversion kits are needed for 24/22 cranksets (most Sram/Truvativ) and are not included.
The wheels go under the first layer of foam to keep them separate from the frame. on MTBs you'll need to let most of the air out. To pack the bike you'll need to take the wheels, seatpost, and handlebars off.
