Fox 34 150mm
What's the BB height? That is wicked cool looking BTW.
That is my sole concern with repurposing a 29'er as we have tons and tons of rocks here.
12.25 BB Height.... Perfect for smooth trails of Demo and UCSC
Intriguing! So does a 650b/150mm roughly equal (Geo wise) a 29"/120mm combo?
Did you ever have it set up as a 29, if so how do they compare?
More of a 140mm 29er
bike feels like a 26
What length are your cranks.... That BB measurement is not much different than my 2011 ONE with 180mm forks. (in sag position) Might be a cool option for a aggressive hardtail build
Trying to painfully relive some of youthful adventures!!
175 xt... I dont even remember about pedals strikes anymore, took it to Braille last week. Safe to say this is not my bike for Toads and Pine Crest Peak.
Is that a 650B fork? Im running a 140mm Manitou 29er fork on my 650B Yelli. Axle to crown should be about the same.
Living vicariously through myself
a used fox 34 650b fork from a bronson (i guess). Was planning on going 160mm, but might get too high.
more r&d this weekend.
did some xc trails at salmon falls (sacramento), semi rocky tacky trail. no pedal strikes and attack mode is great. the bike gets awesome pumps due to the longer travel fork.
The "650b" build starts tonight....frame came in today with some other goodies. Headset and spacers for cranks tomorrow along with tires.. might have to hang up the Intense for a while and play with a hardtail....pics to come
can you give some more specs. frame size? crank arm length? etc...
Any more builds of Nimble 9 650b? Thinking of building on up.
