    Think I found the perfect rear for my B+ Riot- Dual Compound Rekon 2.8. First I had the TB (absolutely zero traction), then the Rocket Ron Snakeskin 2.8 (super grippy but kinda slow and still 2.8"-only .1" clearance.) Moved the RR to the front and replaced the NN, to me the RR has WAY more grip on the side knobs. I wish it has a slightly thicker casing, but I like it a lot more than the NN as a front... nice and rounded still on a i40 rim and the front doesnt wash out anywhere as much as the NN did. As for the Rekon on the rear- the middle rolls fast and the side knobs bite great! And at 2.7" it has .15" chainstay clearance on either side! A lot heavier than the RR at about 840g I think (same as the NN) but the casing inspires more confidence too. Squared off more than the RR too on the i40s which I like on the rear. Might eventually try a 3C Rekon on the front but for now I like the Ron. Love this bike! Still want to try it as a 29er too but I'm having too much fun with the B+ tires for now!

    The Recon is the first tire that really interests me to use instead of the Breakout 2.5.

    Looks good

    Yeah I wish they made a 3.0 for the front... I might try a 3.0 RR up there instead. The 2.8s are great tires but I do still miss the larger diameter of the 29er tires up front... these are only around 28.25".

    New question here.

    for a 2014 YS, i'm looking at either having a reckon+ or a nobby nic for my tires, both of which are 27.5x2.8. i do prefer these over trailblazer because of their side knobs.

    back at the LBS, the only rim options available are 35mm or 40mm internal widths - which will i get? any experiences running reckon+ or NN on a YS 2014?

    (the only predicament i wouldn't want to end up with is having only 1 tire or no tire option at all... - which i think everyone doesn't want to end up with)

    The Rekon would be about 2.7" wide on an i40 rim... I'm liking it so far as a rear tire. I've got a 2.8 NN with about 6 rides I'd sell you if you want... also a brand new 2.8 Rocket Ron Snakeskin (bought from England). Its a nice tire too! 35 or 40mm rims- either would be fine... pm me if you're interested!

    ... which leads me to think... if i extend the internal width to 45mm, what will my tire options be?

    gut feeling tells me that rekon or NN will scrape the chainstays and/or seatstays of a YS 2014

    Id stick to a 35i rim, your going to have way better clearance and more tire options.

    Stoked

    STOKED. I rode some super rocky east coast trails this weekend, and the bike wanted me to go faster and faster. It even handled climbs like a champ (although I am still getting used to the more relaxed geometry and much wider bars). Once I settle in, it's going to rip.B+ Canfield stoke !!-img_6608.jpgB+ Canfield stoke !!-img_6612.jpgB+ Canfield stoke !!-img_6613-1-.jpgB+ Canfield stoke !!-img_6617-1-.jpg

    I did find one minor disadvantage when fitting a plus size to a 29er even though I haven't made it yet...

    I'm still using a Maxxis HRii 2.3 in my YS 2014 mounted in an i25 rim. At the night before I went out for a ride, tropical rain poured down and made the trail sticky wet, similar to below (not my pic, but you get the idea...).


    Even with the amount of clearance I have in the rear triangle and fork (pike), I reached a point wherein the rear won't turn anymore due to the amount of mud build up on the chainstays. (sorry no pic, I left my phone in the car, but then, i know you get the idea).

    Now, part of me is imagining that if it were a 2.8 tire, which has smaller clearance, then the build up could been quicker due to the tires being nearer the triangle.

    ... though part of me still want's to have a 27.5 plus for dry summer days and just for the heck of it

    * don't mean to crash, but looking at the spez fuze, the geo is 'near' the geo of a YS, which really encourages me even more to go for an additional wheelset

    I have some brand new (less than 15 miles on them) 27.5+ wheels and tires I'd be willing to trade for 29er's if anyone is looking to give 27+ a try.

    WTB KOM i25 (15x100 / 9x135 qr)
    WTB Breakout 2.5's f&R

    Not sure this 27.5+ thing suits my local trails. No junk please. PM me.

    Thanks

    In all.fairness to the plus.thing.....you're really only putting wide 27.5 tires on a 29er. The i25 width is too narrow to get any of the benefits of the plus size tires and I'm running 2.5 Breakouts on my 27.5 trailbike with rims that are 32 internal. There's a huge difference.with.2.8 tires on a minimum of 35 internal rim width. I'm not suggesting you go invest in another set but you're not getting the traction benefits with your set up. FWIA.

    Anyone using a maxxis rekon on i45 rim as a rear tire on either Epo or Riot? Is there clearance enough?

    Fwiw - I'm using Atomik Chubbie rims which are i36 with NN 2.8's on my EPO and there is about 3-4mm on each side at the nearest point of the chain stays. I wouldn't go any wider on the rims with these tires. I hear the rekons and ikon 2.8's are narrower than the NN's so there may be some hope to running that combo.

    Before I pull the trigger on plus rim, has anybody used an i40 in a YS 2014? How was the clearance on a 2.8 tire?

    The biggest reason I'm thinking of going back is just variety. I've got a Bronson that I'm running 27.5x2.4's on. Thought it would be cool to try 27.5 on Screamy, but think I like the variety of having a hardtail 29er for different trails better than having similar wheel sizes.

    I know the 2.5's are not necessarily considered + but the WTB Breakouts have such a high side profile I've had no problems with BB being too low and they do have mad traction when running lower PSI.

    I've got a Riot set up as B+. I have the WTB i35's with 2.8 NN's. I'm now running into rear tire rub on the stays, especially when seated while mashing. I'm trying to find alternative solutions without going all the way back to 29er. Do the Maxxis tires that are 2.8's run narrower than the NN's? I've put maybe 60 - 80 miles on the NN's and they keep stretching out.

    The front isn't an issue as I have a boost fork. I might consider going with the NN 2.6's, but that's getting into a whole other area with dropping the BB. Has anyone had any success with lower volume 27.5 tires or perhaps even going with 2.8 Maxxis tires? Hoping the solution is as simple as just swapping the tires instead of going back to 29".

    I was also getting occasional rubbing on my Riot with a 2.8 NN on a 30mm internal rim. I swapped in a WTB Breakout 2.5, which offers plenty of clearance (8mm narrower per my calipers) with no significant difference in diameter. I haven't tried the Maxxis tires, but most of what I've seen suggests they're 3-4 mm narrower than the Schwalbe's so my guess is they'd work.

    Holy wow! Great looking build. Love it completely de-decal'd. Awesome!

    Side note, what size frame is that? It's the new boost frame, right?

    That would be the 2017 Boost frame then. 2016 was still the standard 142x12 TA...
    Have the same color in the rack and was thinking doing Purple myself for accent color... wasn't sure how it would look till now.... looks awesome!!

    I didn't realize that the boost frames were 2017s. Pretty stoked on the build. Rides like an overgrown bmx bike.

    The (apparently) 2017 frames have boost spacing. Canfield recommends 2.8 tires on 35mm (inner) width rims. Sooooo....that's what I used. Plenty of clearance. The 2.8s ride a lot like 'normal' tires. I'm also using a fork with boost spacing.

    Boost is a hub sizing standard with wider spoke flanges to correct spoke angle on bigger wheels for added strength. A bonus to this is the ability to run wider tires and rims without clearance issues all while allowing short chain stay lengths. Canfield says that their rear triangle has the ability to be able to accept a 2.8 tire fine but still uses standard 142 spacing. I equate this to the bros building bikes that can handle aggressive rubber with adequate spacing, not them going along with industry trends.

    Actually, the new nimble 9 has been refreshed with boost spacing 148 rear and extended reach. You are correct for previous frames at 142 can handle 2.8, but there is a new generation of the N9.

    I'm pretty sure that the new boost hubs (148mm) are roughly 6mm wider than the 142mm hubs, which provide for a wider spoke flange etc.....but who really cares? Bikes are fun.

    Need help deciding between B+ and 29 wide on my 2015 Yelli.

    Currently running 29x2.4 On One Chunky Monkeys (measures as a true 2.4) on stans Arch rims (~21 mm internal).

    For tight/slow/soft technical trails I run ~15psi front and ~18-19psi rear and am fairly happy with the setup. Problem I have is I also ride some very fast flowy/jumpy trails with very grippy berms in the corners, and I have to air up to about 25 psi front/30+ psi rear just to keep the tires from squirming and completely folding over in the berms. That leaves the ride a bit harsh for the high speed roots and rock gardens.

    I am planning on upgrading to some ~35i rims, but not sure whether going with 35i and my current 29x2.4 tires is going to give me enough volume and sidewall support to lower the psi to smooth out the ride without folding the tires over.

    Am I better off going with 35i rims and a 27x2.8 tire?

    Seems like B+ tire choices are still fairly limited and very expensive for tires with reasonable weight and aggressive enough tread to an all-rounder.

    Also, this is my PNW winter bike so still need a reasonable amount of mud clearance since I won't be seeing any dry trails for 6 or 7 months of the year.

    Any suggestions?

    Seems like B+ tire choices are still fairly limited and very expensive for tires with reasonable weight and aggressive enough tread to an all-rounder.

    Also, this is my PNW winter bike so still need a reasonable amount of mud clearance since I won't be seeing any dry trails for 6 or 7 months of the year.

    Any suggestions?
    Well, you're in b+ thread, so you're going to get a lot of support for b+ conversion. As you mentioned, the issues are going to be mud clearance, psi and tire roll. At the end of the day, a 35mm 29 set with a beefy 2.4-2.5 sounds like the best of both worlds for you. I ride 2.4s on 29im set and it really helps you get the full benefit of the beefy tire.

    ^This. I was very interested in going B+ on my Yelli, but decided I like how it rides with 29" wheels, plus I didn't want to drop the BB any lower.
    I've got a Chunky Monkey on front and a Geax Saguaro on back. I plan on eventually building some new wheels with ARC 30s or 35s, and hopefully finding some tires a bit bigger than 2.4, maybe as big as 2.6 if they'll fit.

    Still using the 142. It threads in about 1/2" still, so I feel pretty comfortable with it.

    Yeah, you're probably right.

    Unfortunately I don't know anybody currently running a B+ setup to give it a try, and I'm not willing to drop $400 on new rims, tires and spokes just to find out whether I like it.

    I will probably buy a 35i 29er rim and re-lace my rear wheel to start. I can do that for about $100 to see if it makes enough of an improvement.

    Worst case, I end up with an improved 29er wheelset, which I would want to keep on hand even if I went B+ down the road.

    Just my opinion, i35 is too wide if you aren't going into plus size tires. The profile of the tire squares off and the tread is not used as intended by the manufacturer. Going from i21 to ~i30 will give you a noticeable advantage without being to extreme.

    What about running + tires on i30 rims? Is this the middle-ground rim size where one could run + size or just regular wide (e.g., 2.3-2.5) tires?

    Ibis cycles runs i35 wheels on all their bikes. And they seem to know what they are doing. I feel i35 is Great for 2.3-2.8" tires

    Will keep that in mind. While the wider rim should square up the tire profile a bit, that isn't necessarily a bad thing on the rear depending on the tire you run. The tires I'm running have a pretty rounded profile, so I'm not too concerned going 35i in back.

    I don't like square-ish tires up front, so I will probably try the 35i in back and see how the tire profile looks before committing on the front, and go with 30i there if it looks too square.

    For my winter project I am building a B+ 2016 YS with a 140mm Pike (100x15) up front. Looking at going with Spank Oozy Trail 395+ (i35) rims and Rekon 2.8 tires. Anybody running a similar setup? Any clearance issues?

    Any input is appreciated.

    My buddy has the same setup and has plenty of clearance on his N9. Those Rekons aren't a true 2.8 so you should be fine.

    do you guys think the wtb asym i29 is a good option to put on a first generation yelli? I want to try B+ without breaking the bank and I have the chance to buy this rear wheel for $160. Ideally, I want to go with the i.35 but then I'd have to get something built and can't do it as cheap

    I'm running 29im roval traverse fattie's with chupacabra 2.8s. They were take offs and a cheap way for me to get into it at $250 for the set. Are they perfect? Probably not. Do they work and am I having a blast on them? Absolutely.

    Yeah 32 rears and 28 fronts. Surprising that they put these on stumpjumpers. But they've held up great for me so far.

    This thread has been pretty quiet lately, but I hope someone can give me some advice on my wheel situation.

    I have a 2016 EPO with MRP Stage 29er fork. Currently, I'm running 27.5 Spank Oozy 295 wheels (with i25mm) with WTB Ranger 2.8s front and rear.

    I needed new tires, so I bought 2.8 a Minion DHF and a 2.8 DHR II, but they shipped with a card that says they have to be mounted on a minimum i39mm rim. So...

    1. Will the new tires work on my current wheels, without rub and without unmanageable squirm?

    2. What is the widest rim that I can get away with on the EPO using my new tires without rub (The Bros recommended no wider than 35mm external)

    I have ran the Ranger 2.8's as well as the DHF 2.8's, both on i30 rims. If you didn't have a problem with the Ranger then you should have no issue with the DHF as they aren't any larger or wider from what I experienced. In fact I think my measurements were with the Rangers being like 1mm wider if I remember correctly. The DHF's do have a whole heck of a lot more traction though! I had a lot of wash-out issues with the Ranger when I pushed it hard. To be fair, I feel as though the Ranger really needs to be on a wider rim to take full advantage of it. The Maxxis plus tires have been performing great for me on i30's. I cannot comment about how big is too big for your frame though as I'm running these on my Riot.

    Thanks! I think the Riot has 75mm internal width at dropouts and EPO has 78mm.

    I'm planning to lace wider hoops when I have a little extra $$$, but will run the Minions as-is for now. I lived in Pennsylvania until January and then moved to Duvall, WA. My Rangers were great at around 20psi back East, but once I moved West, I found they squirmed a lot on corners at lower pressures. I'm hoping wider rims will correct that.

    If you were happy with the Rangers, chances are you'll be happy with the Minions, that being said, for me I like anything PLUS on i35> or wider or you have to run pressures way too high or get tyre squirm/roll. My current B+ rim of choice for 2.8" is the WTB Asym i35, if I was running 3.0">, I'd bump up to an i40 to i45. Just got a SHF 29x3.0" and I have it on a Dually45 (39mmm internal) and I honestly wouldn't want it on anything wider as right now the casing it just a smidge narrower the the knobs.

    Anyone have any experience running a 27.5 setup on a riot with a DVO diamond non boost 29 fork? Currently on a 29x2.5 maxxis minon dhf and its very tight. Just trying to figure out a 27.5 semi + setup.

    I will be running Syntace W35 rims (35 wide) on my 2017 Balance with CaneCreek Helm (110x15 spacing in front). Any advice on the rubber? I was thinking 2.5 WTB Convict OR Maxxis DHF 2.5 in front and Maxxis DHR 2.4 in the rear.

    I'd try the 2.5" WTs on your existing i29 Flows to see if they'll fit. I don't think 6mm extra inner width will make much difference. I could be wrong, tho.

    Yeah but those are the old flow ex's w/i25 inners. With an updated sticker Lol...So i'll be going up 10mm extra an i really what to Go all in if I'm going to get all new wheelset! I've Used the dhf WT on the flow ex and they are my favorite and Maxxis is coming out with a bunch of WT tires soon.

    Ah, I see now, thought those rims looked a bit different than the MK3. Looks like you got the clearance in the fork at least.

    Those blue and green accents really make that black bike look colorful.

    This is a good article that shows the affects of a few internal mm in a rim and how it affects the profile. It is kinda marketing bs, but it shows how the wt tread is designed.

    Yeah the 35mm rim and the WT tires definitely look wider then the rest but it doesn't look like that much. My plan is to run wtb i35 29er rims WT Minion up front and WT aggressor out back.
    Nice visual though! Stans website has some kind of visual tire diagram they call it wideright Lol. To sell their new line of wider rims.

    I'm running a 26x2.8" DHF on a i29 Flow MK3 and I like it so far, seems to be a great combo even tho Maxxis says i39 minimum for their 2.8s, lol. Sometimes you gotta jump in and try things out for yourself. Lotsa good info around here if you do some digging.

    I'm getting the itch again to try B+ on my Yelli. I really do like it with 29s tho, might try a similar inner width rim (i29) to replace my Arch Exs and pair with some Maxxis WTs.
