It's not like we haven't ridden SRAM's 2x10 yet, but as of Friday we have formalised the relationship. Ignoring that fact that we tested XX a while back on a lightweight race bike, the only times we've had on X7/X9 and X0 versions have either been on pre-production samples or for very brief one-off rides. But we now have ourselves a complete bike built up with all X0 bits and pieces for review in our December issue. We even snuck on a new Revelation RLTTi (20mm Maxle) fork which we will also be reviewing in December. Anyway here's what it all looked like new. Hopefully it looks like this after we've finished with it!
