This thread is dedicated to the full suspension mountain bike. The bike you ride up and down the hills regardless of wheel size or width.

Use this thread to post up your bike regardless of wheel size, the number of chainrings or fatness of the tires…..even boost bikes can be posted.

Feel free to share some details on your set-up, weight or whatever makes it special to you.

26"…..is it dead?
27.5"…..the new standard?
27.5+…..the new koolaid?
29"…..still only for XC?
Boost….????

Post em and discuss em.

Incredible bikes!

I'd love to hear about the Luftklappe too, I ordered one and it must be somewhere over or on the Atlantic Ocean, while I'm still fleeing winter for a few days in southern Italy. Good riding here and 19deg C warmer than my hometown right now. Today it's raining though…

I decided to NOT get new bikes for 2017 and travel a lot more instead with my existing bikes. Let's see how that works out. A shiny new bike is a beautiful thing for sure though, enjoy…

Also got some NOBL 33 wheels in November. Quite a different ride to what I'm used to, but liking a lot. Nice to deal with a great bunch of local guys. Wheels with some metal and rubber attached:

What is going on with that seat?

Nice ride you have there Brad.

Are you liking the Noble wheels a lot more than the Easton ARCs you were on?

Nice Trance Dean!
I was very impressed with the Arc's but in the end found I prefer carbon as alu wheels can easily get dings and then not really be tubeless compatible anymore.
