I've been riding the meta 5 for years (in various frames and incarnations).
I think I've finally got it sussed!! Going 1x10 with clutch mech seemed to be the last piece of the puzzle
It's not too bling, but not too shabby - a nice mix of mostly XT, with a bit of XTR.
Bars and stem are Easton Haven (carbon bars) and of course it has the reverb dropper.
Going 1x10 allowed me to free up space on the LH side of the bar for the reverb lever (allowing it to go under the bar)
All in all, it's such a fun bike - I've done 100 mile rides on it, I've beasted around the alps on it, and it's usually taken out weekly over the local stomping ground (south downs).
Comes in at about 29lbs - could be lighter with a lighter wheelset, but I'm not too bothered....
It's nice to be finally completely happy with a bike!
It really is a class 'do it all' bike!
I think there was a thread of a similar vain recently, but it's always nice to see pics of bikes people are completely happy with!!
