New bike, Turner RFX 2016
This year, for a few reasons, I’ve decided to build one do-it-all bike instead of one enduro and one downhill bike.
It has to be stable and suspended for the lift assisted riding we do over the summer in the Portes du Soleil but still be a reasonable climber for… the rest of the year!
With its adjustable head angle, 160mm of DW link managed travel and carbon frame, the new RFX ticked all the boxes.
Here’s how I built mine:
Frame 2016 XL RFX, with FSA Option headset (65°)
Fork Pike RCT3, 160mm , Fast Suspension compression cartridge and custom stickers.
Wheels Hope Enduro with Pro4 hubs
Brakes Hope E4 Tech3, 200mm/180mm, floating rotors
Crankset Hope 170mm with 30t spider ring and Hope press fit BB
Seatpost Yep Uptimizer HC 150mm
Bar Alpha 780x30mm
Stem Hope AM 35mm
Grips ESI Fit CR
Saddle Tioga Outland (test version)
Pedals Hope F20
Shifter Sram X1
Chain+K7 Sram X1 10/42
Derailleur Sram GX
Tyres Michelin Wild Rock’R2 Advanced Reinforced
Total weight: 14kg
