It may be stock but that Descendant SRAM XX1 drivetrain is one sexy piece of kit.
OneUp’s ISCG chain guide offers that little bit extra chain retention.
Luckily the bike was spec’d with an amazing 120mm travel RockShox Pike Ultimate.
This bike is for three-plus hour singletrack rides, so I had just one problem left to solve. A badly broken wrist and missing tendons in my left hand from an injury a decade ago still plague me. Jeff at District Bicycle sourced me the cockpit set-up to help on those days. We went with a We Are One Composites DaPackage carbon bar and stem combination, an SDG Tellis dropper because it has absolutely the softest lever feel out there and SDG Thrice 33 grips.
The We Are One Composites DaPackage carbon handlebar (20mm rise, cut to 780mm) and Aluminum stem (35mm length and only 80 grams for stem) are finished off with a One Up EDC tool system.
I am really happy with how it all turned out and I can’t wait to get some big days in on this bike.
