    Until someone makes a fork for the 27.5 wheelsize that is stiff enough, I'm not moving. The 275 is a great bike, but the selection of forks are way too wimpy for now. The Fox 34 with 15mm thru axle was twisting like Chubby Checker. I have a Fox 36 on my FXR and it works much better

    The Vengeance fork on the FXR in the photo doesn't even have enough clearance for the WTB tire, yet alone if you put a Continental Trail King 2.4 or Hans Dampf 2.35 on it.

    Your 36 will work with even large 275 tires, and it can be had with 180mm of travel. I havent found the 34 160 float on the front of my Tracer 275 to be at all flexy.

    Great looking bike, hope to demo one when they are available. I am a big guy and want something a bit lighter than my XCT-5. Foes stated it was similar geometry than my XCT.
