the mistress, got this for commuting and it's awesome. Some bits are starting to wear out so due an overhaul anytime soon:

Overhauled the drivetrain then sold it. No longer part of the fleet.

Schweeeet, definitely agree on the dropper post. You should definitely try and get hold of a mission control cartridge to replace the stock damper in the fork as well. It's 1000x better.

Agreed, that's the next two things on my list. Followed by either an RP23 rear shock to replace the stock rp2 or just getting that one kashima'd and/or push'd.

I think you'd get more out of a dropper post/mico cartridge, the RP2 is a good shock.

The ugly cousin is turning out to be a very good ride. I can see my upgrade funds being directed there in future.
