I cycle from Nundah to the City, via a number of different courses on the roadie, most days. Couple of those options that pass Ascot are:
Kingsford Smith drive is horrendous. I'd never ride on this road...
I've two identical wheelsets (both Shimano XT with same rotors and SRAM cassettes, but different tyres) and don't have any problems. And being identical, I don't have to adjust rear derailleur or brake calipers when changing wheels!
haha, thanks for the kind words! :cool:
Built the Yeti with (new) parts from a variety of sources (LBS, ebay and rotorburn etc) to keep the cost down so it's a bit hard to put a price on. My wife has a trance, with mostly Shimano SLX build, and it's also a very nice bike!
As much as I...
1. Bought another Shimano XT wheelset so it's a quick swap between dry/urban (Kenda Small Block 8) and loose/wet (Maxiss Advantage) tubeless wheels.
2. Changed front rotor/s to 7" for a touch more power with rear remaining at 6".
3. Installed Joplin 4r seatpost...
I bought a Joplin 4r two weeks ago. Must say I love the infinite adjustability of that post especially when riding technical trails. But I have already had to strip and relube after a particularly wet/muddy ride so hopefully this will not be a (too) regular service requirement!

All good points from k3n!f. I decided to go down the 15mm front hub and centrelock disc options for my new bike so ended up purchasing a Shimano XT wheelset. I'd have considered XTR if Shimano sold these as a 15mm front hub wheelset.
Anyhow I'm ~75kg geared up and ride fairly agressively...
I (too) was interested in Stumpjumper series but wasn't able to find one I could ride/test on the dirt. :rolleyes:
Found that For The Riders (Annerley) have a bunch of test bikes you can ride on the trails before laying down your hard earned! I ended up purchasing a Yeti 575 but being...
I run Sram X9 mid cage rear derailleurs on both my bikes for the sole purpuse of having a touch more ground clearance to the lower jockey wheel. Both bikes have standard shimano tripple chainrings on the front, however the hardtail has 12-28t cassette and the dually 11-32t cassette on the rear...
