We’re a sucker for Gee Milner’s ‘Dream Build’ series of videos here at IMB, and his first of 2020 is no exception!
“The majority of Dream Build’s shown on the channel feature Carbon frames, I wanted to do something a bit different with this build, I’ve always had a soft spot for RAW aluminium frames and Scott currently offer their Ransom enduro bike in this form. For the groupset I chose the brand new Shimano XT 12-speed which is both high performance, aesthetically pleasing and incredibly good value. I also liked how the XT was a subtle black colour, I felt that bright components would have clashed against the shiny frame colour.
For suspension I decided to use a pair of 180mm Fox 36 FIT GRIP2 upfront and a Fox DPX2 shock at the rear, both with custom chrome decals! Oh and a Fox Kashima dropper post with a huge 170mm of travel!
Wheels and pedals are taken care of by Crankbrothers in the form of their Synthesis E 11 Carbon Wheelset and Stamp 11 pedals and replacing the traditional bar+stem we have the Syncros Hixon IC one piece bar and stem. Finally, the finishing kit comes in the form of a lovely Fabric Ti rail saddle and lock on grips, the Ti rails match the RAW frame and finish off the build nicely.”
