The bike would come with everything in the NX build: https://www.vitalmtb.com/product/guide/Bikes,3/Transition/Sentinel-Alloy-NX,23662. In addition, it would come with: Fox DPX2 shock from the nicer builds Debonair spring in the fork found in the newest Rockshox forks Bontrager line 30 rear wheel with Maxxis aggressor doubledown Shimano SLX derailleur/shifter. It would come with WTB front wheel and Maxxis DHF (not the E13 pictured) If you would rather have a sram derailleur to match the sram NX cassette and chainring I would take off the derailleur/shifter and $100 off the price. Also would drop another $100 if you don't want the Spank stem and vibrocore bar pictured and just wanted the stock Raceface bar/stem. For the record the drivetrain works fine with the sram/shimano mix right now just not quite as snappy as it would with all sram stuff. Great bike, only issues are cosmetic (scuffs, chips seen in pics). Original owner, Transition is a great company and will typically help with part/crash replacements for secondary+ owners as well. More just testing the waters to see if there is interest, thanks.

2019 frame with DPX2 shock and original Rockshox deluxe. Will include 170mm KS dropper and WTB seat. Great bike, only issues are cosmetic (scuffs, chips seen in pics). Original owner, Transition is a great company and will typically help with part/crash replacements for secondary+ owners as well. May be interested in selling whole bike for around $2600 as well (mostly NX build), feel free to ask for details. More just testing the waters to see if there is interest, thanks.

Nerding Out: Why You Shouldn't Worry Too Much About Weight
Since weight seems to be a never-ending debate and bike reviewers continuously seem to contradict one another regarding its importance it would be nice if Pinkbike did an extensive efficiency test focusing on this topic alone. So maybe several bike models with similar components and control tires. But have both the carbon and alloy version of the bike. Or at least add 1 or 2 kg to carbon bikes to emulate the alloy. Having several models with different suspension designs would be interesting too. And while your at it, run the same bikes with both alloy and carbon wheels or add heavy inserts to look at rotating mass. And finally, don't do just a 3 min climb up a dirt road. Try several roads with different gradients and/or at least make the climbs closer to 30 min long. This may help explain the benefits of weight difference in qualitative terms as well as quantitative. The sluggish 'feeling' of a bike may also be a factor to consider even if the time differences aren't drastic. I know there have been other attempts to do this but none have been done properly or have been extensive enough to be conclusive.

Pinkbike Poll: What is Your MTB Capital of the World?
Haha, I think the poll easily answered whether Bentonville is somehow the capitol. Were the Waltons asked if they'd been to Squamish/Whistler? They might retract their claim... I typically celebrate the Indepedence Day of my mediocre nation (at best) by going to the best place to ride bikes in the world: CANADA!!!
