4 weeks to Christmas

In Sweden we got Advent. 4 sundays before Christmas and today was the first. The weekend Christmas starts with decorations and the waiting. Advent means waiting.

And I’m also waiting for a new mtb. But it’s getting closer and last part I got now is a cassette. Sram XX 11-36:

50g lighter than XX1, 143g lighter than XX1 Eagle. Sure, this got a gear or two less but do you really need that?

Shaving weight is about just use what you need. And I don’t need a bigger cassette than 36, specially not when I’m aiming to build a bike at 8kg 🙂
