This build features the wireless SRAM XX1 AXS drivetrain as well as the Rock Shox Reverb AXS seatpost. The AXS option allows riders to customize their remote’s performance and take advantage of a self trimming rear derailleur. The multi-colored AXS XX1 chain and cassette are referenced as Rainbow or Oil slick.

Note the Oil Slick handlebar grip clamps as well as the brake bolts. Like we said, it’s the small details that make a big difference.

Enve M735 rims laced to DT Swiss 240 hubs provide light, strong wheels with excellent power transferring personality.

The cockpit features the Enve M7 carbon stem and M7 handlebar. Torque is critical on a carbon cockpit like this making a small torque clicker like these from Pedro’s popular. Enve spec’s a 5.5 nm torque – so some riders choose the 5mm and go just over, but most choose the 6mm and stop just prior to the click. Chat with our team if you have questions.

The Rock Shox AXS Reverb remote is adjustable with two mounting holes. This allows riders to position the clamp inboard or outboard of the brakes depending on taste. Options like the Magura ShiftMix provide mounts that attach directly to the brake for an even cleaner look.

Chris King Dropset headset is made in the USA, available in a variety of colors and with basic service will last the life of your bike. Why not upgrade at time of build and not look back?

This build also features a FIT4 instead of a Grip2 damper. Many lighter riders will appreciate the added suppleness of the FIT4. One of the beauties of the Fox 36 lineup is dampers are interchangeable.

The 36t ratchet is the most popular in DT Swiss 240s and 350 hubs. While the 18t has a bit of “thump” as power is applied the 54t option can be a bit fragile for riders with big power, or if you’re like me, questionable technique (hey, I don’t spin great circles!).

The brown travel rings indicate that this bike has BikeCo Pro Tunes front and rear.
