This weekend at Mayhem I was running some changes to my 650b ti Ala Carte for the first time in a race. I had some Light Bicycle carbon rims, King hubs, XTR race brakes and some wider Salsa carbon bars.
I've had this frame for 4 seasons now. This is by far the best the bike has ever felt. I think most of it is the bars and brakes as I felt so much more confident on the first rocky downhill and the steep little cut through on the Red Bull trail than I would have done before. The wheels just make me happy as they look awesome. Round the Swinley berms they were definitely stiffer and no tyre roll so it's not all looks.
So what else have people fitted and noticed such a huge improvement?
