    That would be cool for you since Travis is so behind on photo updates. LOL

    So far this is the best we could do.

    Nice, that's the way it should be. Got any more feedback on the 29er vs 27.5+ yet?

    I am not seeing a downside to 27.5+ with the 2.8 Butchers besides the lower BB. The lower BB is a double edged sword, more pedal strikes, but lower COG. I am thinking of installing 165mm cranks for clearance.

    Mine now with:
    - XT brakes - more out of vanity than nothing, the BB7s were actually nice brakes
    - 170mm Reverb - the PRO Koryak was short and started developing problems

    Will add a Oneup Bash Guide this week and I'm done with it.
    Might try a -2 angleset in the future just to play a bit and maybe one of those new Marzocchi Z1 Bombers by the end of the year if the reviews turn up to be good.


    Had another "OH F@CK" moment today where the Moxies' length saved the day. Was riding a technical trail and got a line wrong, causing me to arrive to a 80cm or more drop at stall speed. Decided to commit and try to roll it. Don't know how, but managed to clear it.
    One thing is certain, will never have another bike with a <800mm front center

    I agree, the length will save your ass on occasion.

    Which tyre size do you think is better for my situation? 27.5*2.6 or 2.8?
    I have to ride about 7 miles tarmac that include some steep climb to the local trail. And the tyre I'm aiming is Maxxis Rekon.

    Thanks for the suggestion!
    Does 29er feels harder to throwing around on this bike?
    And does 29er feels bumpier on rocky sections or not?
    Btw, I'm 5"10.

    I have 29 Maxxis WT DHR/DHF and 27.5+ 2.8 Specialized Butchers. So far I prefer the plus wheels. Even on the road they are not slow and they do have more cushioning so I get less beat up. The BB is pretty low which cuts both ways. I saw a Chromag Rootdown the other day with 3.0 High Rollers which will raise the BB and I may try some bigger rubber next winter.

    Have the beating up problem on my 26" AM hardtail, too. It sounds like I will go plus tires for the build. You have a great opinion for me!
    Btw, you might have to check the dimensions of 3.0 High Rollers and the frame. The website says the maximum size of tire the Moxie can take is 2.8 for 27.5 wheel. And I think the reason of the limit is for mud clearance. If you are riding in muddy area, 3.0 tires might cause you some problems.
