Salsa Cycles at Frostbike 2018
@SeaHag: Only pony rustler I’ve seen was half a season old and had stress fractures on the BB right next to the iscg tab. It took salsa days to get back to the customer (to tell him to bring it to the nearest salsa retailer to confirm the damage) and then weeks to process the claim. Thankfully the owner had a hardtail to ride in the month that he was frameless. A far cry from other cracked frame warranties I’ve seen. 1/1 sample size here though

2018 Giant Glory as stock: 36 pounds -SRAM level tl brakes - not the best, but it's a replacement for the elixir 5's, which I used to race dh with. Useable for sure. -350# spring is great if you're around 150-155, but since this is a medium i'm sure most people would need a different spring -SRAM x5 shifting, no clutch so chainslap and slow to shift +wheels are great, hub is decent as well. Tubeless setup incredibly easy, seals very tight and difficult to burp +frame welds are clean, paint is thick and good quality +stock stem is great (truvativ descendant) +cable routing is clean and stays out of the way, no funky under the downtube/bb nonsense +suspension feels smooth and sensitive out of the box. Brakes and drivetrain were necessary upgrades imo.

+light +tons of airflow +sweet helmet bag +mips, downward removeable cheek pads -not as comfortable as my old poc helmet - padding isn't as soft/supple -very narrow for the size, runs small -doesn't come with an extra visor -d-clip is a little difficult to use due to the placement

+Incredibly stiff. +soft, tacky rubber on the heel for grip/harder rubber on the toe for ease of clipping in. No trademark stick on the front of sole. +Weatherproof, resilient front +boa +heel cup is comfortable and anti-slip with a synthetic leather -nylon/cordura style mid of the shoe isn't that water resistant. Nothing some nikiwax wouldn't fix, but it's annoying to have the front of the shoe so waterproof and nothing in the mid. -Boa doesn't tighten up with an even feel. This shoe could use either two boa dials or a boa dial and a metatarsal strap.

SRAM LEVEL TL SET- brand new in box!

$160 USD
2018 sram level tl. Replaced the avid db5 - these have the bleeding edge fitting for easier bleeding, and the updated piston/cylinder design from the new guide brakes. This is a SET. Both are rear, 1800mm brakes. Must be cut and bled. Fittings (olive and barb) come in each package. Clamp and bolts are in the box, sealed up. Brand new from sram, I got different brakes instead.

The seat tube was even worse before cutting it. Saddle height was full on XC mode! I'm going to leave the steerer like that until the mountains open up and I can try out different stack heights.

Riding Rigid is Ridiculous - Opinion
Suspension doesn't always make things more fun. For a mild XC ride, my rigid cyclocross bike is more fun than the other bikes I ride on a regular basis which includes giant anthem/trance and a cannondale habit black edition. It's only 4-5 lbs lighter than the cannondale, but it's much more direct and the responsiveness to inputs and mistakes is immediate. It makes the boring, local XC trails fun again
