Hey Luke,

No pro rider but at 6.0 feet dead / 183 cm , I had a few rides on my Tues 29 in Large and Tues 27.5 in Large on my friend.

For me, the bike is spot on, I wouldn't change much of it, but would be eager to try it a mullet, not that I don't like it as it is, just to try something different. Sadly didn't managed to put my buddy back wheel on my bike but if I have a chance I'll try it, just that after I've consulted the geo charts even more, it will lower the BB below 330 mm and I'm afraid it will get to low and slow.

After trying my friends bike, it felt really small, and I believe you will find the 27'5 XL and the 29er Large the same at your height.

How I see it considering your height, either go XL 29er, or XXL 27.5 and put 29'er lowers on the forks and go Mullet. You can try the 27.5 front & rear, but once you hop over the 29er, it's a night and day difference, the bikes just flows over everything, and you can easily pop it around. Indeed, it just takes a few runs to feel the the length of the bike, but once you accommodate you'll just love it.

If you are fixed on the mullet setup (however, after seeing Trummer and Suarez this weekend in Maribor ripping on the 29ers I wouldn't be that keen on) I would look at the Commencals or Specialized for their dedicated setup as cost wise would be cheaper and the geo is better adjusted.

Thank you for the info! You may have convinced me to go 29’er haha. Interesting that you notice enough of a difference in wheel size to actually upsize the frame with the smaller wheels as the geo’s suggest the correlating sizes are much closer, just naturally slightly larger on the 29er. I’m curious if you have a trail or enduro bike to compare your preferred geo to? I’m thinking I may really like a long reach and high stack and lean towards upsizing (even considering my height)

Just re visited the geo charts and realized the 27.5 xxl is basically dead between the 29 long and x-long so I can see where you’re coming from....I still just can’t imagine someone much bigger then me on a bike on a bike slightly smaller than my process.

As you've checked the charts , the 29'er in Large overlaps the 27.5 XL bike. I'm almost half a foot smaller than you and Large seems fine for me. I would definitely go XL on the 29er if I were you.

My previous bike was a YT Capra but first gen , that had a tiny 450 mm reach . Always felt that bike small and find the longer reach a BIG plus from my view. As well, I would never got back to 27.5 , at least not on the front, but as I said before, I really like how the big wheels roll.

Gotcha- yea I was mixing up the 29er geo because they size it “regular, long, extra long” and the extra long matches to the xxl 27.5”- annoying that they don’t stick to one sizing scheme but whatever. So I take it you’re on the long which would match your buddies xl 27.5”...I think I might be converted to the 29er the only thing now is I realize they don’t make a COMP in 29...anyone know if YT wheels ‘n deals the Leftover previous model year frames when the New Year model drops?

I want to buy a yt tues cf pro race 29 2021 when it will be available. How much chances does the carbon bikes have to break and im speaking about the FRAME not the parts? In an indirect impact and a direct one?

I'm just wondering, from where did you got this information? I've only seen frame to break, and that was after a backflip to flat at rampage last year but besides that, it's bullet proof. As I've posted here, the only risk ar the fork bump stoppers, as some are loose and might damage the frame.

I have recently got a 2019 27.5 Tues pro race which has the X2 air shock fitted.After 3 rides i'm not felling the love for the air shock and i'm looking to go down the coil route. I know because of the shock length choice is limited and here in the UK nobody has any stock till late Dec or Jan 2021. I have found a Rock Shox Vivid R2C which is in stock. Mt question is has any one fitted this and any feed back please ? I weigh in at 230 lbs ( i like going to the gym,it's not all fat...honest !!) so i'm guessing i'll need a 400lb spring , i run a 700lb spring in my DHX2 on my Kenevo but that thing weighs twice as much as my Tues !!
