Though the bears might not appreciate you stealing their grease, you and your Beargrease X5 will be long gone before they can catch you. With a stiff, responsive aluminum frame, you'll thwomp over logs and boulders atop Sunringle rims and 45NRTH tires with reckless abandon. A 2 x 10-speed drivetrain courtesy of SRAM is all you need to thrash technical climbs and steep downhill sections, and when its time to scrub speed just squeeze your Avid/Tektro levers for smooth, modulated stopping power. Salsa brings a quality aluminum bar and stem to the party, and WTB is all over the supportive saddle.
