Goal of this build (continued from my Air 9) was to create a light, fast, comfortable, and durable... Rigid 1x10 that works in my local terrain
> Super twisty and generally smooth single track.
Handling, drivetrain and braking performance are priorities over weight savings. For example, recently tried some Ashima 66g rotors and the braking performance was horrible. I weighted up with some Hope 2-piece 94g rotors and sintered pads and the control and touch are awesome.
