Got out for my first dirt ride in 18 days due to all this rain! 10" in 3 days.

Super happy the brake rotors fit on here too - but the i9 stem blue color is a bit off lol.

It is a nice looking stem. I prefer my Intend Grace EN though.

Looks like you got their turquoise stem, not blue...

This could very well be as the blue of my Hydra hub is way darker (as shown in the pic a couple of pages before).

Why not get e blue Hope Stem?

No, it’s the turquoise.

I think the only answer is - I tend to make very poor financial impulsive decisions lol

When you tire of the turquoise, let me know. It matches my hubs. LOL

If you want to buy it I’ll sell it to you so I can buy the Hope one. That’s what I should have done in the first place lol. Especially since I’m going to go with the Hope hubs soon too

I think it was $125 new? I’ll ship it to you for $100

Let me get thru July 4th vacation. We can go on a ride and take care of business at that point.

I know this a dedicated 29'r, but has anyone thought about or tried 27.5+ wheels on this bike?

They won't fit.

Ok, was reading a little deeper on their website and state 27.5 x 2.8 won't fit, but 2.6 x 29 ain't supposed to fit either.

I can tell you that a 2.6 x 29 Rekon will fit on the rear mounted on a 29mm internal rim.

Was just curious if anyone tried fitting one.
