 Lefty Alloy PBR 90, XL. 25lb with tubes! Ideal for smoother trails in Marin. Running 2nd set of Kenda SB 8s. New DB5 brakes and disks. Fork has been flawless and I am a Lefty convert. Anything else is a compromise. Hammers ascents, high seat, XL frame and 29" hoops make switchbacks a challenge. I run tire pressure low. Only complaint is the shimano BR-M505 brakes. The actuators have a push pin that is used to depress the plungers. They have a dangerous tendency to disengage!!! Horrible! The bb creaked and cracked under load. Turns out it was the chain ring pins not the crank arms. I tightened them then put a drop of triflo on them. All quiet. Still running tubes.

 Super fast, doesnt want to stop rollin ever! Climbs like a freakin goat. Definetely looking to upgrade the crankset as it creaks and the bike deserves an XT at least. Tubeless was obviously the first and best upgrade to do on any 29er.
