    Interesting plus size conversions on the Beargrease. I have carbon Beargrease and 27.5+ Fuse HT. Been thinking about doing some Endurance races this summer.

    I would like to use my Beargrease, but the question is 27.5+ or 29+? I have demoed the Trek 29+ Stache and had fun and thought it was fast. Ride in Bend Oregon...smooth and fast trails.

    I´v now done about 20h with Lauf and like it a lot.
    It is not a suspension fork, it absorbs small rocks and roots from the trail.
    It does´t flex and adds only 250gr compared to original fork.

    Hey carbon Beargrease owners: What bigger tires (+deeper thread) have you fit on your BG?

    Have the stock 5NRTH Husker Du (26x4") on the stock Mulefat 80mm rims. I will keep the 2x drivetrain for now.

    Any ideas, need bigger beefy tires for the snow we are having.

    Anyone with a 2017 NX1 build? I've almost got my blackborow sold and think I'm gonna pick one up, seems like a great deal for the price. Also anyone with an older carbon frame, how is it holding up over time? Thanks in advance.

    I have a 2016 Large Beargrease Frameset, purple fade, matching carbon fork has factory rack mounts, includes headset, dropper, and fixed post. Frame is two months old, excellent condition, $1250/obo.

    If you want to keep your 2x drivetrain, your best bet will be Vanhelga. If you want to go 1x, that opens other options, like 4.6 Wazia.

    I rode with 29+, it's a nice ride, a bit stiff, handled fine but the bb was very tall. I'd lean toward 27+ if you were riding fast and flowy stuff.

    Longest I've ever own a bike

    I've had my 2014 bear grease since November 2013. Longest I've ever own a bike.
