My XC bike is at the front. Giant XTC Advanced 650b.
Although not shown in this picture it now has M9000 brakes and 1x11 drivetrain.
Has XT 2x cranks but I will probably get some XT 1x cranks when available
Easton Haven bar 710mm
Giant Carbon stem
Ikon rear tyre and Nobby Nic fron tubeless
Fox CTD something or other fork (the one that came with the bike)
Giant carbon seatpost
XT SPD pedals

Next major upgrade will be the wheels. Maybe American Classics?

I guess its been quite a few years since i posted a new bike. Haven't ridden much for a few years and technology keeps changing. New to me are 27.5" wheels, 11 speed drivetrain, tubeless ready tyres, wide bars and bloody boost hubs. About to take it for a shakedown ride and reckon I may have a few issues as all I've ridden is 26" dual control with cross country width bars.

Build basics are:

Santa Cruz 5010 CC large frame with Fox Shock
Rockshox Pike RCT3 130
Shimano XTR 1x11 Drivetrain
Shimano XTR M9020 Trail Brakes
Chris King inset headset
Arc 24's on centrelock DT Swiss 350 hubs with DT Revolution Spokes, 36 point engagement hub mod
Candy 3 Pedals
Fizik Gobi Saddle
Reverb Stealth 125 seatpost
Thomson 70mm Stem
Easton carbon lo riser bars 740 wide
Nobby Nics up front, Racing Ralphs on back with Stans

Really enjoying this bike. I've been on Santa Cruz Blurs since 2004 and I can't recall ever being so impressed with a new bike.
