Fabien – Always smiling

No reservoir on Fabien’s Rock Shox Monarch Debonair. Instead he has a bar mounted lock out.

Fabien has been running oval chainrings for ages now. 34T up front.

No lower bash on his guide, but a block up top weighs very little and is quite reassuring.

A tidy internal routing leading to his full XX1 drivetrain.

Dropper post lever with a tiny patch of sandpaper for the slippery days, and the travel adjust switch for his rear suspension down below.

Rear shock lockout atop his SRAM guide ultimates. The brakes look about the same, but it seems they have carbon lever blades and ti hardware.

Always a fan of short stems, this looks like it comes in around 40mm. Renthal Apex.

Interesting tire choice up front. Looks like a Schwalbe Magic Mary. The new sharpie choice.

Ti rotor bolts.

Yep – Definitely a Magic Mary.
