Thrown on the 38's on to my Rallon (pics coming this weekend when I'm actually out)

Anyone upgraded from the 36's? Don't think I need any spacers to move to the Kabolt factory 38 but I could be wrong?

Do you notice much performance difference? And also what is your weight?

I haven’t had a chance to ride yet.

I only got the 38s because I’ve thrown on the new rear linkage too so needed a bump in travel and thought why not.

Riding Sunday so will give opinions!

Sizing is the only downside. How tall are you?
You'll have to size up I guess. For people taller than 190cm (6,24 ft) than the XL could be too small.
Otherwise it's a great versatile bike.

The bike measures larger than what they post. I measured my medium size and it was around 455 cm in reach. Its honestly too big for my liking and I am 167 cm

Yeah I did the reach measurement myself on my bike and that's what I got. It's a s/m. It definitely feels like a big bike. Wheelbase was alot longer than whatever is quoted as I recall as well. Point being it's a good idea to at least sit on it before you buy it.

Maybe you've got a size large and it has the wrong sticker on it?? Maybe talk to your dealer?
