Everyone has a different strategy for success at the Downieville Classic. This year I opted for a slightly longer travel bike with burly tires so I could really send it on the downhill day, the bikes no slouch on the climbs though.
Here is a quick bike check of my All mountain set up from the race.

Fork - DVO sapphire 130mm.
Rear shock - DVO Topaz 115mm.
Tires - Maxxis minion DHF 2.3 front, Minion SS 2.3 rear.
Drivetrain - Shimano M9000 XTR.
Brakes - M8000 XT Trail.
Wheels - Giant TRX1 29.
Pedals - HT m1.
Bar - Raceface next carbon, 760mm.
Stem - Raceface next 55mm.
Accessories - purple Togs & Wahoo ELEMNT Bolt.
Total weight 27.12lbs

    Just sold my Revolver and thinking of buying the top of line Trance 29. How efficient is the pedaling? Was also considering the Ripley LS until I saw this 😳🤤 - 6 months ago

    @biketuhl you flew up the climb like you were on a hardtail! Great work out there. - 6 months ago

    @like_the_wheel yeah it was 27 lbs 12 oz. I enjoyed the extra insurance that the bigger bike gave me on the descent but I was dreaming of a hardtail on that climb. - 6 months ago

    27.12 or 27 lbs & 12 oz ? If you’re going off the scale at weigh in then your bike weight is 27 lbs and 12 oz, which is more like 27.75 lbs. I went with a similar approach of a bigger bike (27 lbs 14 oz) and my bike worked great. Coulda used a little more training though. Am thinking about slightly less bike next time though as so much of the overall race comes down to the XC climb. Like you said, so much time goes into strategizing! - 6 months ago
