    I was advised to go DT 511 for 29er, the Stan's Flow rims are a bit light for 29 the (very experienced) wheel builder said. Mines a 27/29 with a Lyric. love it

    Where ironically Chris often uses a Crest without issue and he rides hard!

    Yeah, itís a nice idea but apparently super super stiff to the point of being too stiff - uncomfortable.

    I'd definitely buy from the guys at Mojo Rising, they really do care - their service is amazing, second to none in the business. It's like owning a Rolls Royce

    My vote is for G16 with 29 front and 27.5 rear.
    Same as Mr Porter and the Pilot ride.
    I have recently switched to that setup after 3 years on a G16 with 27.5/27.5. Lyric upfront now (42 offset 160 travel). The 29 fork and wheel raises the front end by maybe 20mm, slackening the head a touch (maybe 1.2 degrees) and raising the BB just enough to get it to steer in right on that wagon wheel.
    One ride on a fast steep rough track convinced me, it just steers better. and of course it t rolls over beautifully as well. 29/29 would obviously roll over even better but MAY be a wide/fast track only beast.
    What makes it even more adaptable is If I want to ride local XC singletrack and its real tight I CAN put in a 650 front wheel, which returns me excatly to standard G16 geometry. (but with 160 travel which is fine for those tracks).

    Thanks for the advice. As you can see, I went for it! You are right about the Mojo staff. Got a hold of them and the were super helpful and had exactly what I wanted in stock. Gave me a really good rundown on suspension baselines as well. Got it built up last night and hit the mountains today. Was dead tired by the time I got the suspension halfway dialed in but I could see sparks of what a speed and cornering machine it can be. Looking forward to racing enduro and downhill on it next year.

    I would definitely go for the hybrid on the G16 if you're replacing a Slash. I've had a lot of 29ers and I ran the original Geometron as 27.5 both ends for a couple of years, the hybrid really feels like the best of both.

    I have a G13 that I really like for trail centres and easy pedalling but the hybrid set-up is far nicer to ride on anything downhill.

    An interesting read, would like to see what his idea of a perfect fork would end up being and the associated cost and weight!
