The frames on crc are under 1k right now. Im tempted to just try the medium and swap everything over. Im 6ft and still feel sometimes I cant get the seat low enough.

I refer back to a few months ago when I was told the ethirteen wheel set was made of cheese and didn't believe it...

Hi, could anyone please make a picture of the chainstays/seatstay and the cranks? Or a picture when standing on the pedals?
Thanks

Oh sh1t. You on Adrenaline?

Im not sure which wheels to go for now. Had hope enduros on my reign and they were ok. Maybe some DH wheels !

I think this can happen with any wheel. Just a bad hit maybe with combination of not evenly tightened spokes (loosened over time) etc.
But in general I think wheels with welded rims are better choice.

I went to hope hoops from the stock wheelset, best upgrade you can do rolls better, sounds better and less punctures

I didn't really want the hope rims but for an off the shelf wheelset nothing comes close value wise

Anyone running 2.6 tyres?

forekasters. Just fit. Im sure they rub a bit though as there is a mark on one of the stays. Those flexy e13s perhaps.

Just this with matching front of course, would prefer wider rims but i wasn't gonna spend a chunk more to get them, just replace as you break them!

Hi there, I am considering a Meta 4.2 and think uphill is ok and fast descent as well.
How ever, I am wondering How good/easy you can handle slower speed technical terrain and switchbacks. How is your experience?

Also, is it easy or harder as with other enduros to bunny hop and jump?

I fear a little that this bike might be top much speed / race oriented. Id like a bike which is Not neccsssarily very fast, but forgiving, providing self confidence and also agile enough to easily handle slower technical stuff

A bike that is very forgiving is usually more work to be agile.

I think depending on how the bike is set up with tires/wheels and suspension (coil or air) this bike can be either but is somewhere in the middle of all those things.
