8/10 on the Tranny. Would be a solid 8.5 if the One Up chain guide were black and paired with their dropper. At least you will have a 10/10 dropper lever!

My custom 28 lb HTLT.

28 lbs? so you went more for trail bike than enduro rig with the xtr build. 9/10 cause would be better with a smaller trail-oriented shock like dpx2 (and saved more weight).

You pretty much nailed it. I really wanted to love the DPX2. And I did 80% of the time. But it was just so harsh off the top when charging rock gardens (Sedona, South Mountain). I didnt want to add the 150 grams extra, but it really solved all my issues.

That HT is pretty sweet. Just not a fan of the yellow but still a solid build. 9.5/10. My new bike just arrived and I swapped out some parts.

Super nice build. If I had to criticize anything it would be the looks of the handlebars. 9.8/10

Here's mine. Not really AM but I ride everything with it.
