    My guess is just boost. Don’t know why they’d change anything else. Regardless, had to pick one up for $799. I have a non-boost wheel set that needs a home anyway...

    Yep, couldn't resist that price. Will probably hang out in the box for a few months as I collect the parts and sell my Top Fuel. Non-boost is perfectly fine with me - I can pick up a wheelset on the cheap in 142x12.

    My new EPO showed up yesterday. I’m tempted just hang it up on the wall in my living room. Thing of beauty...

    Matter of taste, I would say. I am about the same, 6'1" and long reach, and I love my XL. Playful and nimble bike, and the 150mm dropper post fits well. 140mm fork, stem slammed on headset. Some pictures a couple of pages back in this thread.

    I want one of these but I've gotta sell my wife's gravel bike first. She never rides it and it's just much needed money on the table.

    Maybe next year the 2018 models will go on clearance with whatever updates they make!

    I have a 2016 Large EPO frame for sale. $600 plus shipping. If you guys know anyone looking for a Large frame, shoot me a PM. I'll put pictures up here, Pinkbike and a few other spots later this week.

Same question for the TOir.. any heavy riders beating down on that thing? THanks!!!

    EPO Will do just fine. I am 6" and the heaviest I've been with gear was about 225 but I put this bike through some hard rides with everything that I also put my FS on. Jumps (2 - 4 feet), roots, drops, jagged rock gardens, fast flowy descents... You make it, she has been through it and she does exceptionally good. Is an amazing hardtail!

    Thanks man! That's great!! Really trying to decide between the two frames.. two of my buddies have an EPO and love it... of course they weight 100lbs less.. hehe. Here's one question also.. you think the new 2.6 tires coming out will fit the rear....let's say on a Stans MK3 29 rim.. 33 outter 29 inner I believe they are??

    I'm thinking no, as people mentioned in this thread previously trying 29x2.5WT Maxxis tires that were too close for comfort (or rubbed).

    Sean from Canfield told me that the 29 x 2.6 tires on wide rims (up to 35mm internal width) work on the epo. I'll probably find out soon, as I will be retargeting my Ibis 941 rims to my epo soon. 27.5 x 2.8 work ok, but are kind of close to the chainstays using Maxxis Rekon+ tires on Ibis 742 rims.

    I don't see how this is true unless I got some odd defective frame. With a lightbike 30mm internal, 35mm external I can not put a 2.4 onza ibex on there without rubbing. I have a Maxxis High Roller 2.30 back there as absolute limit.

    I'll test fit my 2.6 on it this morning to see if there is a chance in hell it works. The 2.6 is on a boost hub though, so there's no chance of me riding it in that configuration until I get some new tires for the non-boost 941 I have. I'm fairly certain though that a Schwable Nobby Nic or Hans Dampf at 2.35" will work ok, which are both more like a 2.5" tire in actual size.

    Yeah, I don't think a 2.6 will work, but I didn't have time to give it a good try since the brake rotor is too big as well and I didn't want to futz with the rotor or the caliper at this point. I'll be trying a set of 2.6" anyway to see for sure, but I'd be glad with a NN 2.35 on the rear anyway with a 2.6" up front.

    Tires/rims tried on the EPO. 29x2.5 DHF on 35id rim no fit, 29x2.4 Ardent on 35i rim rubbed, 29x2.3 HR2 on 35i rim fit well. I also tried 35i 27.5 rims with 2.5 DHF up front and 2.4 Ardent on the rear. The 27.5 is an absolute blast on the EPO. If I still had the EPO it would be set up with the 27.5 35i rims and 2.6 Maxxis rubber front and rear.

    I put a 29x2.6 Schwalbe NN in the back of the Epo on a WTB Asymi35 rim

    It fits, but I wouldn't run it, maybe in the desert but not where I live.

    Thinking the Rekon 29x2.6 might do the trick w/ the smaller knobs.

    Hoping the 2018 EPO will have a boost option and take a 160mm fork.
    That way I can move my Fox36 RC2 over and use my 27.5 x 2.6 wheelset.
    Would be a great addition to my FS.
    Would be great if they drop the seat tube length on the medium to 390mm for a longer dropper.
    Room for two 28oz bottles and I'm good to go.

    Wow, that sounds interesting - a HT with a 160mm fork! And 2.6 tires!
    I mean, that rig is already pretty long and slack for a HT...but it is still a HT, so there is still some kind of uphill promise coming with it, right?
    What about this idea: currently they blow out 2017 frames at half price. Same is valid for any non-boost carbon wheels. Then put your 36 on cl and buy a 2018 34 w/ 140mm. Cheap bike ;-)
    Will be fun anyway...

    Where's another bottle going if the seat tube is even shorter?
