    Has anyone gone from an aluminum to carbon framed stache and if so did you notice a great improvement in ride quality?

    Got rid of a 2016 Stache 7 last year and then after dealing with stache separation anxiety replaced it with a 2018 Stache 7.

    Hey, surprise... itís very similar to my last stache! Not exactly though. In my opinion the Yari feels better to me than the manitou did on the 2016, and the ride is slightly different. I pulled the 35mm stem and bar and changed to 31.8 setup. Other than that I need to get clipless pedals as the platforms and I are just not clicking.

    Those bikes are about 2 things, proper tires, proper PSI.

    Custom Curtlo steel frame and fork with Paragon swinger rear dropouts. It is actually a 135/170 fatbike but it spends most of its time in 29+ mode. I also have a Wren fork I run on it from time to time.

    Nextie Jungle Fox 45mm internal width rims laced to Hope Fatsno hubs with Chupacabra tires. SRAM XO1 11 speed drivetrain w/Middleburn cranks and Phil Wood 100mm width BB. Shimano XT brakes. CK headset and Bontrager cockpit bits.

    Love, love, love this bike! It's tons of fun in 27.5x3.8" mode too.

    edit: I have no idea why this reply got slotted in where it did. It was supposed to go at the end of the thread.

    I really wanted one of the original rigid version of those.... Sadly, about the time I was really thinking of getting one, they dropped them. :-( Such a nice bike.

    So far, so good. My former bike was a traditional-sized-29" bike, so the rigid concept is not new for me. This bike (29x3") is much better off-road.

    2020 29+(ish) Marin Rift Zone 3

    Running a 29X3.0 DHF upfront and a 29X2.8 Rekon out back. I say 29+ ish because the Rekon measures in at 2.7" and it probably the biggest tire that will fit as it is pretty close to the non drive side chainstay. Post your 29 plus! (29+)-marin-rift-zone-plus.jpeg

    Why did you do that? Sure, personal preference, but was it to be more Stache like? I love my 1120, but I recognize that it's not perfect. My upgrade was to get carbon rims. I'm thinking about taking the racks off. I understand that the 1120 is going to be discontinued.

    I am curious, i know on a road bike or a XC the wheel weight can be important. But on this kind of bike what are the advantages and the negative aspects??

    Obviously weight is a factor, though I wouldnít consider it a negative aspect.

    Advantages are traction, rollover, lower tire pressure, and lots of fun!

    I never rode my 1120 on the original stock 50mm Sunringle (?) aluminum rims. I read a couple reviews of the bike which both recommended an upfit to carbon rims. So I did. I thought it was (and is) an awesome ride. The only thing it can't do (that I would want it to do) is weigh 5 or 7 pounds less than it does.

    To answer your question, I don't know.

    in addition to what 1cog mentioned, 29(+) also allows for riding on all terrain, adding snow, mud and sand...

    the only negative I experienced was the added weight and rolling resistance...until my legs got stronger, and now I don't notice that at all...AND, when I ride my commuter, and BMX, I am stronger on those as well

    Frankly, wheel weight plays into the scheme but is less a consideration in plus. Road and XC are not the same class so are irrelevant on many levels.
    I own 810 and 835g Nobby Nic performance 3.0's that do just fine for a finesseful 165# rider. Those do just fine on Scraper i45's since I have no desire to own DH weight tires or wheels. These tires and wheels have been through quite a bit, as they live in the Rocky Mountains and have a few scuffs but not one ding, dent or other damage. Max tire pressure is 14 and average riding pressure 10-12, with 8 psi for loose potting soil and sand.

    As for weight, the above wheels are reasonably light but could be lighter. Ask me do I care... They serve their role exceptionally well. Sure, there are weight wankers out there that will spend a fortune to save a gram and a half, there are the riders that just want to ride and enjoy the experience. Not all are drunken sailors with a bike!

    I remember now that my LBS guy said that it wasn't so much the weight savings, but the "stiffness" that was the big upgrade of carbon wheels. I don't know about that, but I said, "mmmm, carbon." I'll admit it was an extravagance, but I don't have any children so I'm spending the money now, while I'm here.

    And how did you know that I'm a sailor?

    I hear you. Without going crazy at 60 i started putting a few $$ on what i enjoy. I stopped working and just glad i did. I am just so light that any wheel is stiff enough for me.

    Ummm, cause you're drunk and spending money like one!! Pfft! I know the disease we all have all too well with a collection of 6 RSD's and another 14 bikes...

    I can relate to the carbon rim thing too. As much as I wouldn't mind having at least a pair of em, I like the Onyx hubs more...
