Hey Pete I loved this review and I keep coming back hoping for something on the big wheels... any news on the 29er experience on this bike?

This is a beautiful bike make no mistake. And I’m a short travel fan. The modern breed of XC/trail bikes, like this bike, are way more capable than their numbers, and superb fun without being a drag on the climbs. But - and this is academic as I bought a new bike late last year so I’m not in the position now - this bike has a press fit B.B. And that puts me right off - literally never again.

Thanks Andrew - all makes perfect sense.

Thanks I enjoyed this piece as I did the original review. Makes sense to me to amend original conclusions. I've been looking at a Stache myself and am caught in a size-up trap to get the reach I want but then running a higher-than-ideal seat tube, which may restrict me to a 125mm dropper, which for me is less than ideal.

I couldn't find the details in the reviews so I hope you don't mind me asking how tall are you, what size Stache do you run and did you mean that once you removed the seat tube bottle cage bolt the ethirteen dropper fitted ok?

Thanks in anticipation.
