So I've been riding this bike for awhile. I bought the frame around december during the SC sale on these. I rode it with 26" wheels for awhile and thought it was a great bike as a 26 but I wanted to try some 650b wheels so I had some Pacenti TL28 laced to hadleys, and I went with the 2.1 Neomotos.
I can definatley notice the better rollover in rough rocky terrain. My local trails are pretty gnarly with lots of heavy rock gardens and the larger wheels help with that. The Neomotos have alot more traction than I am used to - coming from maxxis crossmarks. I enjoy the traction in the turns and its helpfull in the rear for powering over things, however on longer rides (20+ miles) I cant definately tell this setup takes more energy to roll.
-I recently went 1x9 with a 30t wolftooth and a zee RD, I'm really liking this setup, super quite.
- hadley hubs with a bolt on thru axel, man i really love the stiffness.
