    ETS-X70 with 650b front wheel

    Because I could I guess. I think the ETS-X is a great riding frame. I rode it for 2.5 years before moving to 29ers, and rigid SSing. I never felt quite right on it though while decending and cornering.

    The 650b front wheel, even if it only very slightly slackened out the geo and raised the handlebars... Made it for the first time feel just right.

    Is that an attachment for a trail-a-bike? If so, that's one of the fancier rigs I've seen for pulling one of those.

    How was the ride back to ground level in the background? Looks like fun.

    Yes, that is a trail-a-bike attachment. I hadn't been riding this bike in the dirt for a long time now. But I can tell you that the downhills were greatly improved by the 650b wheel up front. And like I said (maybe somewhere else), I can't believe what a small difference a slightly larger wheel and slacker HTA made to this bike. It feels good (instead of slightly wrong) for the first time since I've owned it.
