    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...

    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.

    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. ...

    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.

    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...

    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.
