    Swap Solo for TBc?

    Have a 2013 TBc, medium. Not a 29'er lover. Would prefer 27.5. Anybody in the opposite position interested in frame & wheel swap?
    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.

    Swap Solo for TBc?

    Seriously. I bought the TBc in April, first complete bike purchase in more than a decade. (Usually score frames and build). Already have a 650b, though it is a heavyish trail bike inbuilt up in 2010. I was hoping for something like the Solo, a light short travel XC bike, but it wasn't out yet when I bought the TBc.

    The TB sounded like a great idea at the time, 2 of my regular posse have them, and love them. I already have a 650b in
    my stable (and a 26") but no 29'er. Gaping hole that needed filling. What could go wrong?

    Well, I blew my wad, but just don't like the 29" wheel size. It's not the gorgeous bike, it's me. I drank the new kool aid, 27.5", and became a "b- liever"
    29" just too big for me.

    So, strip the TB and sell frame and wheels on eBay, or Craig's list? Ideas?

    Thx.

    It costs you nothing but time to try CL, and if you're somewhere that has an active and large MTB community it might actually sell. Beware of scammers and thieves, of course.

    The TB2 has already put a serious hurt on your resell / trade value. I don't know that you can do anything about that. Unless you get extremely lucky and someone out there hates their new Solo, I think you're hosed.
