    Can anyone give me some sizing advise, I'm 6', all my bikes have always been a large... Will a Longer be ok? I'm planning to run a 140mm Pike, 170mm cranks and possibly 29x2.5" front 27.5x2.8" rear for some cush.

    I'm 5'9" on a long with a 30mm stem (could go 35mm) and it fits great. If I were 6' I would definitely go longer. I don't know what your other bikes were, but they are probably short in comparison to the Moxie. IME once you go long and finally get enough reach, you won't want to go back to a shorter bike.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.

    Thanks, that's what I was thinking. Current and past bikes are all short... 2016 Stumpjumper 29, 2015 RM Element, Titus Fireline, Stooge, Yeti SB95...

    Teal is very unpopular. Haven't you heard of anti tealing activists, you know, "save the teals"

    hahaha. right on, teal i ssold out i just was told in an email from Alan...

    I do have a question to add:

    I really like the extra grip of the minion dhr2. Any reason not to go with a 2.6 minion dhrII front and pair it with a 2.8 in the rear for more cushion? cons I could think of are that it would pedal slower? but have more comfort? oh, and a little more wallow in the back end. ( the one thing i dont like about plus tires)

    I know i could just try it, but wondering what the general idea is.?

    Anyway, this isnt a normal mtb setup i know, but it just makes more sense on a hardtail.

    I tried a 27.5 2.8 Butcher rear and 29 2.5 DHF front on one ride. It felt weird so now I either 29 or 27.5+

    Won’t hurt to try 27.5 2.6” front with 27.5 2.8” rear. If it sux we can put the 2.8 up front or on another ride

    How does the fit on your Fugitive compare to the Moxie Travis?

    I think that could be a good idea. I'm currently on 2.6 DHF front, 2.6 Forekaster rear. Running a 27.5 fork at 160mm.

    When the Forekaster wears out, I'm going to try a 2.8 in the rear for a little more cushion.

    Also going to move to a 29er fork when the current one craps out.

    The Moxie has a touch more reach than the Fugitive, but they feel close enough.

    So, have you ever even driven a taxi, Travis?

    Because I have.
