    holy crap that looks like a fun bike. I'd LOVE a B+ Titus Fireline EVO!

    Is that a chinese Ti frame? or a custom, domestic frame builder?

    For sure a very FUN bike ! Made in China by Walty. I wanted to try and I can say is better than I expected, they work well.

    Gorgeous build HYDE, what did the frame end up costing you from Waltly?

    That dropout looks exactly like one one on the Kokopelli 29+ bike, which is probably made in the same factory as Kokopelli, Roca Roja, and Carver. I wonder if any of these companies will start selling a B+ frame anytime soon.

    The price in China was around 990$ but I had to add shipping (I'm from Italy) and customs, but at the end a good price compared to other titanium frame I can buy here and they do all the details and geometry I ask.
    Right, very similar to the Kokopelli that I think is weld by Walty too.

    Here's how my Mukluk looks with 27.5+ rolling stock. I'm not concerned with weight and I only checked it out of curiosity. Not a single carbon part on this bike so I was mildly surprised by where it ended up.

    Waiting on pedals, not even gotten to really ride yet Pedals come Thursday.
    It is surprisingly light for a mtn bike, but spd pedals will add a chunk back :/

    That bike does not have 3" plus size tires. Please visit the 27.5 forum to show it off!

    MyTrek Farley 27.5+ bike

    For summer, I switched to a carbon fork, Nextie 40mm rims and Vee Tire Fatty Trax 27.5x3.25. It is now a 23 pound 27.5+ bike. Can't wait to try it on the trails.Name:  farley.jpg

    Whoa, I was thinking about the same idea for my Farley as they are known not to be able to take 29+. Can you post more pics and details on the wheels?

    Salsa hubs, DT competition spokes (32 2x) and Nextie 40mm 27.5 carbon hookless rims set up tubeless, brass nipples. Tire diameter is about identical to stock wheels/tires, so no change in BB height. I've been planning this for many months, and I am super pleased that it came out exactly as I calculated. Got a 25 mile ride in on it this morning on the roads, as the trails are still too wet.

    A 27.5 but had a 26 wheelset built for 26+ for now but most likely also 650b+ in the coming months since the frame is generous clearance wise.

    I'm 6'0" and that's a large frame.

    Everybody has a different opinion on this but I would recommend the smaller frame size for those "in between".

    Lazymuf,

    As a fellow Sergeant owner, gotta ask about your riding style. Do you like to play, jump etc.?
    The Sergeant is kinda long in the front, but it's a wheelie factory that can still climb very well.

    As a tweener size wise, I think a medium might be your better choice. That would keep it more nimble for ya.

When I started seeing pics of 3" tires, I was smitten. The softening effect on rocky/rooty trails is very noticeable, and the traction, esp. descending skiddy sketchy stuff is confidence inspiring, to use a worn-out but can't-think-of-a-better phrase. It also "rides" smaller that my RIP9 even though the frame specs are similar. A bit more nimble and turnable than the RIP, yet it still feels very stable.
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    My '14 Sultan. Clearance looks good. Time to start playing with air pressures. Going to run the rear wheel on my hard tail until I get a new fork next spring.

    Thanks! No, not a Carver, but they did help to inspire the frame. Myself and another MTBRer decided we couldn't find a frame that was simple and fit the kind of geo that we wanted to we decided to design one and have it built. It turned out so nice and is so much fun to ride that we are starting our own small Ti Frame/Fork company. This frame is our only design so far and we really happy with it. What I love is it was built for 27.5+ wheels you can put any size set on it and it works great.

    Bike Set Up
    Fork: Fox 34 29er boost 140mm fork
    wheels: WTB Asyms i35 with hope pro 4 hubs
    Tires: Nobby Nics 2.8 front and back
    Crank: Race face turbine with narrow wide 30T (1x11 set up)
    Brakes: shimano XT
    Shifter: XTR


    Frame Specs
    Material: Double Butted Aerospace gr9 Titanium
    Frame Weight: 4lbs on the dot
    Size: Medium(18")
    head tube is tapered 100mm length
    HT Angle : apox 68 as it sits, moves closer to 70 with a 120ish fork
    Seat Tube Angle: 73.5
    Chain stay length: 430, and is adjustable with dropouts
    rear hub is 12x142
    Rear Triangle is made to fit up to a 3" tire with plenty of clearance
    BB Drop is aprox 60
    Threaded BB so no noisy stuff going on

    Those are just some overall specs, let me know if you what to know anything else. In my opinion it is the perfect do it all bike. The first ride I took it on a 12 mile ride that had pretty much everything you can throw at it and I fell in love(don't tell the wife)

    Orbea Loki 27.5+

    Here's my Orbea Loki 27.5+.

    The top photo is the before, and the bottom photo, the after. I swapped out the fork, brakes, shifters, cranks, post, stem, bar, saddle, and grip.

    Just got it finished up yesterday afternoon, and I'm hoping to get it out on some dirt this week.

    Nice. Looks like you could easily go 27.5+ as it appears to have tons of room.

    The sweet part is no boost, just a plain 27.5 with generous spacing all around.....yup my 2nd wheelset will be 35i with 650b+ rubber of some brand.....like the NN's but interested to see what the Ikon & Rekon measure out to be.

    I probably won't get to ride it until this Friday as I have to swap out the grips, cut the handle bar, and replace the pedals.

    Another picture of my Diamondback Catch2 after swapping out the grips and pedals, shortened the handlebar, adjusted the air pressure in the fork and shock, put on a bike computer, etc. Let's see your 27.5+ bike-20160423_113131.jpg

    Just got it finished up yesterday afternoon, and I'm hoping to get it out on some dirt this week.

    What fork (and travel) did you put in the Loki? I cannot tell from the picture if it's a Reba or Yari. I have the same bike and thinking on upgrading the fork to a 130mm Yari.
