Pike Ultimate XT 4 Pot Wolftooth Dropper Lever Renthal Stim and Bar

Cables/Hoses are still a little long as I might go to wider taller bars. These are 10mm rise, 780's

Super nice build ! Did you black out the Renthal graphics on the bars ?

Thanks, Yes, I wet sanded the logos off as they really clashed with the other bike they were on.
May I ask whhow you did it and what you used to sand the graphics off ? I would like to do that same to a set I have ..

Wet sanded with soapy water, 220 grit to remove the graphics then 400 grit sandpaper to remove the sanding scratches.then a simple paint rubbing compound to bring back the shine to match the rest. Only sand where and what you need to. Take your time. Experoment, practice where the trips go.

built this up for riding jumps / pump tracks and fun stuff only
purposely made it too small for riding up hills so that I don't have to
probably need to get fork travel lowered (maybe to 140)

One week into my Switchback FS140
Misty Blue with silver heritage wrap, Hope hoops, XT 11sp train, Pike ultimates and Fox DHX2.
After a couple of set up rides, took it to a gravity shuttle day yesterday with 40km+ of descending, and absolutely blown away with how smooth, stable and quiet this is. It's no featherweight, but that was never the plan. So good.
