What upgrades have people done to their SXs so far?
Mine's pretty stock atm and was thinking either wheels or bars and seat.
Opinions please Smile

I've made some small modifications:

- Tubeless
- MRP AMg (v1) Guide
- Senus Grips
- Easton havoc 35mm stem
- Renthal Fatbar Carbon Bars arrive tomorrow

Future:
- Industry Nine Wheels
- Rockshox reverb seatpost

Which wheels are you thinking?

For those that converted to tubeless, did the bike come with valve stems and tape?

Are you guys really dropping the chain with the 1x11 drivetrain?

converted to tubeless this past weekend. It didn't take long at all.

My bike came with rim tape and tubeless valve stems, but I had to buy sealant. The process was much easier than expected.

Had my Trance SX a month and a bit, kept the drive train clean and chain retention has been flawless Smile

on the previous page dhridernz said a chainguide was required, so I wonder if that's with 2x10 or some other drivetrain.

2x drivetrain definitely needs chain guide. I was going to add a bash guard, so i figured I might as well just pick up one with a guide as well.

On my previous bike I had x9 type 2 rear derailleur with race face narrow wide chain ring and I always dropped chains on dh stuff. I think I may have had a defective clutch b/c the new x1 has been flawless.
