Few upgrades to my Stylus. TRP Quadiem G-Spec 4 pots, 2020 Lyrik decals and a fresh set of WTB Vigilante/Trailboss tires.

What size trailboss? Is it close to being true to size.
Saw a review from a guy that said the 27.5 2.4 was not true to size and pretty small for a 2.4. Just bought a vigi 2.5 for the front and dont want to end up with a small rear tire.

I finally managed to change all the broken parts on my Bagger.

Fork, crank, BB and brakes got replaced. Now running a freshly serviced 2015 RS Reba with a Fast Suspension compression kit, old and wide XT square taper BB, Deore DX crank and Zee brakes with new brake fluid.
Pretty stupid mix of parts.

Both are 2.6”. They are pretty true to size, slightly smaller 2.6 on the nose.

I too run a wtb vigilante upfront and a trailboss on the rear both are 2.6.
But the rear is smaller, both on 33id rim, the front is 67mm and a light casing and the rear is 65 with a tough casing.

I also have 2.8 ranger tough casing on a 36id rim this comes up at 67mm

Went to Pisgah and Dupont State Forrest over the weekend.

Got my ass kicked getting to the top of Black Mountain and bonked and it started it started raining towards the bottom. But really want to go tackle that again.


Rode Dupont on Sunday which was a blast. The Ridgeline trail there was a ton of flowey goodness. Rode both days with a friend on his Surly Karate Monkey.



Need to go back.
