Decided my dartmoor needed to be strictly a 4x/bikepark machine so ive been on the look out for a light xc rig for more everyday duties , thetford ,carver barracks xc course etc. This beauty came up for a bargain price so i jumped on it much to my wifes disapprovel 😁

Cube reaction gtc sl (carbon frame , fox 32 factory , fulcrum 27.5 wheelset, full xt groupset)
Ive swapped the 2x10 to 1x10 with an oval ring and differant grips appart from that its stock . Wieghs in at 22ib 9oz but switching to tubeless this week as well. This thing flies really pleased with it, my first proper xc bike.


I have just uploaded these images:


And one of both bikes as they are
