    Carbine 275 question

    I'm going to be racing a few Enduros this year, so i thought i'd upgrade my trail bike. Thinking 650b wheels, possibly the Carbine or the RM Altitude. Is it true that you can only run a 160mm rotor in the rear? That would almost be a deal breaker.

    i saw that. was hoping that there was a factory option. the work custom shouldn't have to be used when buying a $5000+ bicycle.

    You can space out the current 160mm adapter to fit a 180mm, but we are in the process of developing a 180mm specific adapter.
