I’d also be interested to hear your opinions on the fork.
It is a DT Swiss XMM 120, carbon steerer. This is the same fork that I have on my other Highball. I really like it a lot, love how I can drop it from 120mm to about 90mm, and lock it there for climbing, all with the small lever on the handlebars.
That’s a great looking bike. You could save a little more weight by ditching the bar ends.
I find the bar ends hugely beneficial to my riding.
apart from the bar ends, I always think they are a bit dangerous in any crash as they stick up like two prongs from the bars
No more dangerous than any other part of the bike TBH. I understand why they aren’t as fashionable with mountain biking for joe-average norm moved away (in the UK at least I think) from XC and more toward AM / #enduro / GNAR 🙂
