    That's right.

    Or...it might not be noticeable at all.
    I have tried the regular F29 and a G2 F29 on several bikes......it's a little....and I mean VERY little different.You will notice a bigger difference in a change in air pressure/sag than the off set.

    Did you mount that tubeless? How'd it mount up??? Easy-peasy?

    Im ashamed to say I stuck a tube in there for now. Too cold out in the garage to mess with sealant and too messy to bring it in the house. The Purgatory is "tubeless ready" and was a ***** to stretch over the rim so I'm guessing it will work fine tubeless when I'm ready to go there.

    Buddhak - here's what the flush mount (XXc II Flush) looks like. I had a b**** of a time getting the cups to go in straight with my home-made headset press. No issues with clearance and I like the way the bike handles thus far. I've only gone around my block, but so far I'm in love with the handling. Hope to get a ride in when the weather makes up its mind (dry up or freeze up - this mud is driving me nuts!)

    If you wanna give it a try the control casing tires should air up with a floor pump and hold pressure without sealant. Push down on the tire in the area of the valve stem during the first few pumps.

    Yes. The more travel you run, 120mm range for this bike, the more of a necessity it becomes

    I'm thinking one of the Canfield Bothers would be most qualified to answer this. I'm guessing the answer to be "quite well".

    Ride #3

    Nice long singletrack climb up to a skills park today, where I hit some jump lines and wood features. Still some loaner parts from my 26" hardtail... XO brakes and a reverb on the way eventually. Fork was locked down for most of these photos.

    30t/104bcd non-ramped SS/1x ring by Andersen Machine Works. Works great, cool design. You have to bevel the tabs on the crank spider slightly inwards to clear the chain.

    Super fun bike to ride.
    Compared to my 26" AM hardtail, it's like going from a Lotus Elise to Corvette
    Both feel great in different ways.
    The Yelli is definitely much easier on long rides and climbs better, just generally more efficient. Surprisingly, log rides and skinnies are also easier on the big wheels. So far, doesn't feel as flickable as the 26'er on jump lines or on tight switchbacks, but definitely very capable. Corners great at speed too. I notice some adjustment in cornering technique is helping, I am over the front more, steering less and leaning more.
    1x9 with the 30/36 climbing gear feels like it will be perfect for summer epic rides here. The stiff back end with the thru-axle, wide bars and light weight feel great for climbing out of the saddle.

    I likey!

    WTF?!

    No mention of the non-ramped version on the website!....so I ordered the ramped version.

    Oil well (oh well ) I guess I'll just have to make do.

    PS - Nice lookin' bike you got yourself there. Looks moist down there too.

    Very nice! So I'm guessing you ended up buying one? It sounded like you were borrowing it from your other post.

    Thank you, brother. I had a Minute in mind until I impulse-bid on a black Reba Team. Looks like I am going with a tapered fork. CFO was not amused. Man gotta do...

    By the way, FM, your YS is so dope I suffered a small seizure looking at the pics. Well done. Now that funds are depleted, my unit will beat up my Karate Monkey and steal all of its components. Right down to the 14 year old compact Deore LX cranks.

    E-mail Russell and tell him what you want. I asked specifically for a SS version and it's awesome because it's spaced slightly inboard (better chain clearance from cranks).
