Nice new rig, congrats!
I rode the Stinky Spoke this year on my 29er hardtail MTB with fairly wide tires. It sure helped on the loose and steep hills, but it was a sluggish disadvantage on the other 90% of the course.
The week after that ride I picked myself up a Norco Search XR Carbon (Ultegra build).
Converted the stock Clement X'Plor MSO 40c tires to tubeless and slapped on some water bottle cages.
Rode the Stinky Spoke course again with it. SO much faster.
It will never be this clean again...
