    Thinking the Rekon 29x2.6 might do the trick w/ the smaller knobs.
    Fitted the 29x2.6 Maxxis Rekon tires today, they clear, should be good to go unless they stretch a bunch. Might have slight rubbing on the CS in hard corners due to frame flex but won't be able to ride/verify till May.

    Edit: mounted on i33 nextie rims

    I just wanted to update and say that this is now my favorite bike in my stable. Holy cow is it fun! But even so, on a rocky ride yesterday that i am well familiar with I managed 17 PRs (everything but one crux move). Still learning the limits pushing through rock gardens descending, but overall, I cannot believe how much fun and how fast i can ride on a hardtail! Shot from yesterdays ride:

    WOW - i've ridden that "crater" near Santa Fe - in the spring - no snow dusting as it appears in your pic - but its an inspiring and unique view every time you look a different direction or from the bottom looking up before coming out of it!!

    looks kinda like what you'd expect from the moon or Mars!! HA - if the current sale EPO was boost i'd own it already - but have a plus ready and capable 27.5 boost wheel set and only would need a 29 to have both option... Hence why im sooooooo freekin close to a chrome n9 boost...

    There are a few folks running boost wheels on the epo. Fyi...

    I have read that they have test fit boost wheels in to most (all?) of their frames and they work just fine. The only thing required is a thru axle that is 6mm longer than the stock one.

    Be curious to hear from anyone with firsthand experience trying this.

    Has anyone else been surprised at the maximum depth of seat post insertion?? I'm just about to start building up my Medium frame (I'm about 5'11" - 6'0" and got a BikeYoke Revive 185mm dropper. When I received the dropper yesterday and slid it into the frame, it stopped about 1.5 - 2.0 inches before I had expected and well before it reached the front derailleur mount. No other hardware or bends are present in the seat tube and I hadn't verified the depth with another post before I bough the dropper. I was surprised, given it's a straight seat tube with internal routing, that you couldn't insert the post all the way down to the where the cable exits the frame. It's likely that the saddle will be too high and I'll have to exchange for the 160mm version. Just seems a little surprising given the type of bike and that I'm at the high end of the height scale for a Medium already that a longer dropper wouldn't fit. 160mm would still be a huge upgrade for me, but it's a bummer that I potentially miscalculated.

    Might just be some excess material in there. Have you taken a look to see what is actually causing the obstruction?

    At your size why did you go with a medium. Iím 5í8 on a large and I could easily fit a 150 dropper slammed.

    Hi all
    New to bike building and putting together an EPO and hope someone can help. Have a sram GXP team English threaded BB and sram gxp 1400 crankset with 32t chainring. When i install the chainring contacts the frame chainstay. Sram indicates to not use spacers (and even trying with couple spacers) seems to contact chainstay. Any help/advice on where I have gone wrong!
    Thanks!
    Dixon

    Whatís the offset on your chain ring. I had the same problem with mine. Solved it with a less offset chain ring

    Hi Sorry, not sure on this, it is this crankset:

    Wiggle | SRAM GX 1400 1x GXP Chainset (with 32T Chainring) | Chainsets

    Do you mean how much the chainring is set back from being in line with the contact point between the BB and the back of the crank?

    Cheers

    Look at the Canfield site for build specs (found on the EPO page). It will tell you what offset your chainring should be. Chainrings come in a variety of offsets to accommodate a variety of B.B. and chainstay widths. Your offset is probably not correct.

    Make sure your dust covers are on the bearings. Did you try spindle spacers? If so try a spacer under the BB shell it wonít interfere with the chainring. You most likely have a 6 mm offset chainring. You could get a 3mm offset ring which is normally only needed for boost rear ends but will Work either way.

    The Bros. claim 32 is the largest but IMO a 30 is the biggest that will work. I put a 32 on and barely cleared the CS. Not enough room for flexing IMO. I run a 30 with no probs.

    Either 3mm offset or 0 offset bb30 ring will be fine.

    Hi all
    Thanks for the replies and advice. LBS said may be due to chain ring being too large. Sean at Canfield bro also got back to me to say need direct mount chainring. The crank I have with chainring currently uses spider to attach chainring. So gonna look at getting DM chainring with maybe 30t and hopefully will be good to go. All these different options and standards sure are confusing!
    Anyone have any good recommendation for crankset fitting gxp BB already with DM let me know, or recommendation for good DM chainring that won't break the bank?
    Cheers

    XO1, XX1 can be found reasonably used. I prefer SRAM rings, I have not had great luck w/Race Face rings. RF anything to be honest.

    So yes this is essentially exactly what I have except I have the gx 1400 cranks but don't see that making a difference. Exact same chainring and bb but my chainring cuts into the chainstay. How do you upload photos and will provide?

    Mine is a 2016 pre-boost model so that may make a difference. Also, SRAM makes a variety of chainring offsets for that chainring. Yours may be a different offset than mine.

    Mine 2017 but still pre boost. On that thought do you think using a boost crankset would solve it?
    Otherwise is there a way to tell from the chainring it's offset? I was not given any option or information on offset when ordered it.

    Cheers, good info! Have ordered a chromag direct mount 30t so hopefully being both less teeth and also DM should have it sorted! The kind fellas at Canfield are also gonna fire across a 32t DM they know works too to try but will be a while before gets across the pond.
