Even though I have and have had bikes with both GX and NX Eagle drivetrains, and don't have complaints about them, it's nice to see a departure from those drivetrains and someone using the new Shimano drivetrain's!
I rode Tannery Knobs (although not all of it) 2 weeks ago. It's fun! The green trail is actually a lot of fun as you can rip it pretty fast, and repeat! Some of the berms in the corners really need to be raked free of the loose rock as they are quite slippery!
