Hey everyone...

Just bought the 2016/17 Sight a7.3 (the silver one), and I just wanted to know if there are any upgrades or whatever, that anyone has done to make the bike feel and/or perform better.

Can't wait to hear what's been done.

Thanks guys!!!

Just got the same bike! I feel like the front end is a little heavy and a little out of balance with the rear because of it. So I just ordered an am swapping out a couple of items:

The stem for a Raceface Turbine 35
And the bar for a carbon Cromag BZA

That should lighten thing up on the front nicely, then I think she'll be perfect! Oh I also threw some crank bros Mallet E pedals on as well.

EDIT - Update - After swapping out the above stem and bar... the bike is virtually in perfect weight balance... very, very nice.

EDIT #2 - Ditched the clipless pedals for some Raceface Chester flats... much happier!

A couple other items I have since also upgraded:

I just upgraded was the cassette by adding a Wolftooth GC 49. It's a set that adds a 49t cog to your PG1130 cassette. It also comes with and 18t cog, so you remove the 17t and 19t and you keep all the others to stay at 11 cogs. It's magical!

Also upgraded the front ring to a Wolftooth narrow wide ring

And threw some Raceface Love Handle Grips on it.

...Annnd just went tubless... wow what a change to the levels of grip available! Still playing around with pressures... but what a difference!
