Some adjustments needed for the rough terrain of the Scottish Highlands. The French Divide taught me to bring a larger spread of gears on the 1x setup and to pack smart, so i'd still be able to shoulder the bike when necessary. The biggest change in riding quality would be the front suspension which takes care of the bumps and lifts the front of the bike up by 10mm. This in turn changes the angles a little bit for easier descending and raises the bracket for pedal clearance. Weight is 13kg. and probably 22/23 when packed.
