Have you tried with one chain link more?
I have mentioned that few pages ago, I had this issue with not being able to reach the proper B-gap on a shimano 12s transmission and adding one link did the trick. It was for another frame though

Hi all,

I am running a 2017 Chromag Stylus on 26+, just curious if anyone has ridden one with 27.5 front, 26 rear. Any feedback you all have would be cool, thanks.

I posted one of these on a different thread without realizing there was a stylus thread. Just finished this build not to long ago.

I put a lyric ultimate on my stylus after the CSU broke on the pike. What a world of difference it makes to have a stiffer and more supportive fork. Because is came off a transition patrol though the fork is set up to 170mm travel with a 38 offset but this actually better preserves the geo I think. HTA is now 63.5, reach is a tad shorter 460-465, and BB might be a bit higher but all that is negligible and the wheelbase is more or less the same.

Also cut my bars from 800 to 780mm, what was I thinking having 800mm bars lol. I am 182cm tall with a positive ape index and still those bars were hard to engage with.

Gotta say I am in love with the hardtail and all it can do. Double black steep loam to rocky tech its got your back man.

I had a 2016 with 27.5/26 mixed wheels on 2.4” tires. Rode a bit too sloppy at 160mm travel. Went down to 150mm and it was great.
Strangest part about mullet hardtails is climbing and low speed tech. Sometimes you’ll roll over a rock or root easy with the front and your back tire hangs up unexpectedly and tries to dump you into the bars. You get used to it though.

That red stylus is so sick! What bars are those?

I am 6'3 so tried to get a bit more stack by lifting the fork to 170 - it ended up going up to 180, and as someone below mentioned, it feels a bit sloppy and disconnected. Am going to try some air shafts i've got lying around and get it back down.

I've cut mine down to 760, and although i have 800 on a big bike, 760 just feels really nice and agile for this bike, and i'm 192cm.
