Truvativ Bars are cheaper and same weight than ritchey... I can get both for you at good prices. Pm for prices!

 

BTW...Awesome build. I still miss my anthem

Looks very fun to ride...why are you running a 2.4 at tire at the back and 2.2 at the front...usually it's the other way around?

It's what he still wants.

 

Nice looking bike.

 

You are going to enjoy the Anthem, built mine up a month ago..I went for SRAM this time, light but doesn't work as nice as Shimano

thats a pure beauti...will the 2010 centre pivot fit my 2009? looks tighter ....

was thinking about changing it all to SRAM but read up on the xx set and they are better for rich racing snakes who can pay to replace think i will stick with the bomb proof kit ...

 

if you want to off load that frame let me know ...

On a previous setup I also ran a wide tire at the back and a narrow tire up front. I thought that the narrow tire up front would best suite steering and the wider tire in the back best for traction.

Most people want more traction on the front than on the back, in a corner, a little rear end drift is a lot more comfortable than a front wheel wash out.

I run an 07 anthem advanced, full xtr. would love to run big tyres front and back, but I cant get a 2.4 into the rear triangle. so it's 2.25 on the back and 2.4 on the front.

You referring to rolling traction if I am correct. My setup was based on pedaling traction since it was setup on a xc bike (made sense to me at the time). Fat tires all round on my trail and AM bike.

Lite hubs the ztr were great but soft hoping dt swiss can last longer only lost 44 grams overall
