Video: Are 29/27.5" Mullet Bikes Faster Than 29ers?
@loopie: This needs to be done systematically. This whole "I'm gonna throw it on the back, and then throw it on the front" is classic. If it was that easy, the big manufacturers would have figured this out a very long time ago. It really shows how little the Design Engineers know - you also need someone who can understand the relationship between the parameters to truly define how we move forward. Looking a EWS guy who has better results means very little. He may have outdated geometry and it makes the bike a little better - you don't see many designing bikes around the R&D efforts. This isn't Formula 1...these guys have 1yr to make something better before it hits production numbers that can't be backed down. Most folks on here see it as better / worse.

@loopie: I raced my bike in all three configurations and prefer 27.5/29 for it's nimbleness and balance f/r. It's important to maintain the same axle to crown when going from 27.5 to 29 Front. I have 2 years of experimenting and have tried nearly every permutation. PM me and I can fill you in.

@mikekazimer: You should be keeping the same Axle-to-crown as the 27.5 spec. You will also need to increase the fork offset on the 29 fork.

ARBR's RB2 Carbon 29er Protoype - Bespoked Show 2019
Looks better than most big mfg frames. I wonder what the leverage ratio looks like?

Video: Shredding the Backwoods of Northern California
@jasperwesselman: A little, you're right. I do hate that fact that this area is being posted it's just stupid #instafamous #Idoitformysponsor #vloglife. Props for building lines and the work you guys do out there - no knocks on the shovel work, but putting this content out there is just plain dumb. You might as well use Strava...that's all for now.

@tacklingdummy: Yeah, the video is good quality, but it is a really bad idea. I ride that area 3-5x a week. I know the mess that will likely ensue. Unfortunately, the mtb industry is all about social media and marketing and right now it's all about content, the 'likes', marketing and 'bro-ness'. Thank god for social media. I thought these guys were OG and understood the cost of posting this? Whey not build in their home zone in Aptos? One of the guys has property....

@tacklingdummy: Making the movie was a good idea. Distributing it was dumb. Good luck with this not getting on the radar. @jesperwesselman also, make a damn plan and stick to it. Things are getting obscene and illogical out there.
