I hope so!
That's because you never ride it, and it's not a 650b!
It's actually blue, which is even faster!
Just got a call that the...
32x40 on 27.5" will give you about the same gear inches that I had with 30x36 on 26" wheels. There isn't anything down here that I wasn't able to climb because of it, I am more of a masher than a...
Having never been I was imagining more sustained climbs. Good to know.
What do you have for a cassette in the back?
Hell yeah, can't wait to get it out on the trails!
Real extended climbs are my one concern with my 1x10 setup. Don't really have any around here, but I want to make it up to KT sometime soon.
Nice! Are you sticking with the 1x10, or swapping back to 2x?
No, not yet. It's red, latest technology!
That's just a passing fad. 650b is where it's at.
At my size I've always been worried about the flex and durability of the 29" wheels. I have enough trouble keeping spokes intact on 26" wheels. ...
What did you end up doing?
Okay, so the frame is picked out an on it's way. 2015 Stumpy 650b Evo frame. Now I just need to get all the parts for it! Pretty stoked, I like building bikes almost as I like riding them. So...
Sounds good then, especially if you trust the guy.
I'd be leaning towards the Mach 6 myself. Check the build though. Seems like kind of a mish mosh of parts.
Not really, it took me longer than it should have to come to a decision on buy complete vs build myself. Decided to build myself, now just waiting to hear back from them.
That depends on what kind of bugs they were.
What kind of pedals?
I went 1x10 this year and love it. 30T up front and 11-36T in the back on a 26" wheel bike, so that would be closer to 28T and 11-36 on a 27.5". There's been very few times that I wished I had a...
So, Specialized got back to me with a few options. They'll give me either a 29er or 650B Stumpjumper frame as an even swap for my busted pitch, or set me up with a 29er or 650B Stumpjumper complete...
I'm used to more like ~6mph average MTB rides, so 16.7 sounds pretty impressive to me, especially over 100+ miles.
That sounds rough, probably best as a wall ornament at this point?
It was a 2008 Specialized Pitch, though I got the frame new as a warranty replacement in 2011. It cracked on a weld at the pivot mount for the rocker arm on the seat tube.
Thanks man! I...
