I was just wondering if any of my fellow clydes where riding the F29. I like the bike, but the rear feals a bit flexy. When I am out of the saddle I even get some tire rub. Any comments or suggestions are appreciated.
Although I am getting light by clyde standards (down to 223 from 251 in four months), I ride a Caffeine 29er 2. Absolutely in love with this bike. Solid, solid, solid. I have ridden numerous full suspension bikes since the mid 90s, and this bike has gotten me back on a hardtail, smiling the whole time.
Flexy rear end? No way. That aluminum rear end doesn't budge. Flexy rear wheel? That's possible, but I am not riding the factory wheels. Mine was built by mikesee: XT hub with Flow rim.
I have a caffine 29er 4, no rear flex or rub on mine and im at 300lbs
the front was flexy but I swaped the dart for a tora
