Ride report: very fast sums it up. Steers brilliantly, accelerates, climbs and descends brilliantly. Took only 20 mins or so to dial in the suspension. XX1 is very slick. May need a 34 front ring rather than the 32. I'm still very much a 26er fan, just so much more nimble than a 29er on tight, technical single track. XX World Cup brakes are ok (got them cheap on EBay), may switch to Hope in due course, also may trim an inch or two off the bars, but other than that, easily the best race/trail mtb I've ridden. Very happy!

I don't think words can describe how stunningly beautiful this bike is, and a big :up: to you sir.

Beautiful set-up. I love mine. I have a Yeti asr5 now running 3x9 and would like to upgrade to SRAM XX1. A few questions if you do not mind.
1. What Q-factor for your cranks does one need to get?
2. What length of crank arms are you using?
3. What bottom bracket did you use?

I am so looking forward to change over. Thanks in advance and enjoy your riding:):):)
