@chriskneeland: They also corner fine. I bet you tried an old geo version and have assumed they're still the same? Anyway, wheel size on it's own is nothing as it combines with everything else. What Ben Cathro's video comparing them on V10s.

Rocky Mountain Altitude Rally Ed Xlarge custom build

$1700 GBP
Rocky Mountain Altitude Rally Edition in Xlarge - frame purchased in July 2015 and finally built in August of same year by Psyclewerx in Bristol. 150mm rear travel - 160mm front travel. Front triangle was replaced by Rocky Mountain in June 2016 after minor quality issue with original (outermost carbon ply cracked above bottom bracket due to bad batch of material). Rockshox reverb was also warrentied at same time due to the 4mm free play when fully extended. Both wheel rims, rear shock air can (EVOL) and swing link in frame (stiffer) were upgraded at the same time - June 2016. Custom build as of today: - XT M8000 1x11 speed groupset (11 to 42 tooth rear cassette) - 175mm crank arms. - Oneup oval front chainring - Brakes warrantied and so have new ones ready to fit (dual pot XT) - these are still boxed as new and unfitted due to me running Hope V4 brakes instead. - 203mm front and 180mm rear discs - Wheels: Hope Pro 2 hubs on Stans Arch mk3 rims, set up tubless with 2.4" High Roller front and 2.3" Minion SS rear (slight side wall damage - see photo) - Fox float X EVOL rear shock with remote lock out lever - 160mm Rockshox Pike fork (not boost) - Rockshox reverb 125mm drop dropper post - Madison Flux saddle - Renthal cockpit: 780mm Fatbar 38mm riser bars on 60mm Apex stem - Ergon grips - Rockguardz frame protector fitted from new - invisiframe kit fitted from new Condition: Usual signs of use and some scratches to paint where exposed. Reason for sale: I made the mistake of testing a Geometron G16 and got hooked! Now have G16 and haven't ridden this one in half a year.

4 New Materials That Could Improve Carbon Fiber
@jmjr: All fair points - it definitely an area to be careful with. Didn't know tyres were such polluters either!

4 New Materials That Could Improve Carbon Fiber
@jmjr: Thanks for links - they refer to to CNTs (carbon nanotubes) and graphene platelets being free, though. In our case they are bound up in a matrix resin and so this improves the situation. Even if you abrade resin/graphene combo, the dust particles are now bigger than the graphene on it's own. This needs to be researched but i suspect it will be a lot better. I don't see that CNTs are the same as graphene either, similar to other people's comments here.
