I finally got the bits together to get my Sync put together today. Blimey it's sprightly. I just need to get some bars with a bit less sweep to lengthen it out a little.
Shiny thing built at last and worth the wait
I now have the frustration of a long weekend with only an hour free to ride. It's taking a while to get the hangof gripshift. More than once yesterday I grabbed a couple of higher gears as I approached a sharp rise.
Good work on your lawn...
What cranks are those?
Thanks. They're xx1 with a 32t chainring. Thought I might need a 34, but now I'm thinking I might need a 30, or a few less pies.
Only just seen this, sorry for late reply!
Looks good mate. What's the full spec? What travel you running the forks at? Got an accurate weight figure? (Mine with similar build but 2x10 rather than 1x11 was under 12kg even with the Reverb!)
Flat rise stem, and a riser bar though? Do you not find the front end a little tall? I've got 120mm Revelations, no stem spacers, a negative 10 degree stem and a flat bar and the bars still feel a few mm higher than optimal for me!
Cheers mboy. The full spec is:
Revelation RCT3 20mm forks at 120mm
Xx1 drivetrain with gripshift
Reverb with Spesh Henge Expert saddle (in wide arse size)
XTR trail brakes
Stans arch ex rear and crest front on dt240 hubs
Haven 85mm stem with 3T Extendo 740mm flat bar
It comes in at 24lbs on the nose.
It does look like the bar is a riser in the photo, and in fact I've rolled it forward more now as there is too much sweep for me. I need to swap it for a Strut at some point soon. I've also dropped the spacer. At 6'4" I don't think I'll need to go negative, but a flatter flat bar would probably be better for general riding.
