Bike History

  1. Initial
  2. proper brakes and shifts to boot!

Current Stage Info:

I finally updated the shifter/brake levers to the impeccable 10 speed S700 units. These are virtually the same as the Apex 1x11 units on my fargo, but for a 2x10 system. The upgrade was overdue, after some severe damage on the old Rival levers and serious disappointment on the feel and performance of the Trp Spyre brakes.

How's your 1x shifting in the muck? Considering a 1x setup for my next allday/anyroad sled.
