Upside down but trying harder

I just cut two off! It's freeing!You need to cut out some of those annoying cables; they're obstructing my view.
You're a downhiller at heart.I just cut two off! It's freeing!
After acquiring my Bronson, I decided to keep my Scott Genius, thinking that they serve different purposes and I'd get some use out of both of them...like having one pair of 88 underfoot skis (Genius), and one pair at 100 (Bronson). Turns out I loved the 100s so much that I neglected the 88s for the past couple years. The Genius was a 2x10, with a shock/fork lockout lever, and a dropper post...yea, LOTS of cables. I finally transitioned it to a wide range 10 speed cassette and a single chainring. Plus, I decided to get rid of the fork lockout (it didn't work anyways). Two cables down and the cockpit is now set up "correctly". Still not sure I'll ride it much, but I think it's a much better setup for when (if) I decide to sell.
I also think it would be fun to swap the shock to a coil, and maybe upgrade to a slightly beefier fork....but not committing to that cost quite yet.
Agreed…for me it’s thinking about “what goes up must come down”, the longer I go up, the more I get to come downThere is ways to make that climb less unenjoyable.
Huh. This is what I love, love, love about the X2.
No skipping around. All traction, all the time.
But I can tune any ride I want into the X2, what with externally adjustable HSC, LSC, HSR and LSR.
