I’ve considered going from my DR to an XT, health reasons mean I can’t do the riding I used to on my DR, so I’ve considered swapping for something for road and open gravel friendly.

The XT is an awesome bike but the weight is appaling, when it is going it is fine, as soon as it is standing still or you have to maneuver it around the weight is an issue, i dropped it ones and nearly popped a vain in my head picking it up, the DR is refreshing!
