Santa Cruz's Really Wide Carbon 29er Rim - Crankworx Whistler 2019
@NicoOfner: @Otago: Yes, Maxxis WT tires works very well with ±35mm rims. I tried 2.5 DHF with these 37mm Reserve rims (but in 27.5) and they were really convincing as a pair. I am actually considering running similar setup at the front of my own bike. But for the rear I am happy with narrower rim and tire. You can run 2.6 Rekon at back for example but I would suggest it only for hardtail use. Its too balloonish for full-sus IMHO. In short, Maxxis 2.5/2.6 with ±35 rim, and 2.4/2.3 with 25-30mm rim. Those are all my opinions.

Santa Cruz's Really Wide Carbon 29er Rim - Crankworx Whistler 2019
Tried these rims in 27.5 version. Paired with 2.5 WT DHF it was the grippiest combo ever (2.8's at i40 is too hardcore). In 29er version it must be insane. I can see use for such wide rim at front (I have i35's).

@JohanG: cannot understand that too, especially after he had several experiences with broken rim

Review: 2019 Santa Cruz Megatower - Stiff & Solid, But Not That Sensitive
@fartymarty: Just by the numbers you posted I guessed you ride Starling Murmur. :) How do you like it? Is it good all-rounder also for mellower trails or big hits and park only? As 6'4" I would go custom with 535R. Sadly frame price is little steep for me.

Same thing. It may be very infectious riding bike with so little travel but just hearing the noises of that suffering shock I would like some reserve to not blow thru travel all the time. Modern superlight bikes pay grade is so much higher but I don't want to put that money into service. 140/120 is much more all round.

Salsa Updates Full Suspension Lineup, Including First Official Downcountry Bike
@colethompson: Part of the story. Anytime some brand redesigns its model or even whole lineup it ends for me with not offering of big enough bike. Like is it that hard to make XXL size!?

Hope Unveils New HB.130 29er - Core Bike 2019
Second this. Please do not be like Unno with only one size and make XL or XXL size with 510+mm reach. And longer chainstays too.
