Well, it's all official, I am now riding SRAM components on my bikes. I have been thinking about it for a while now and since the Kona team has been linked in with Shimano since forever I was not sure if it would actually happen.

I have been riding on the new Rock Shox SID's since the Scott last year and have been loving them. I decided with the longer travel Kona 120, to go the ever reliable Reba's with 20mm through axle. Mavic make a SLR to suit so I have not gained any weight, but the advantages are huge. The beauty of the RockShox system is it is a true quick release. I reckon I can remove the front wheel quicker than with standard quick release.

I opted to go with XO trigger. Teamed up with a Matchmaker, I still only have one band around the bars, even on the side holding the remote lock out leaver, how good is that...Also looking forward to abusing the new Avid Elixir CR brakes, they really look the business.
