Aaron Gwin’s Race Bike Stolen in Edinburgh
Welcome to the United Kingdom. I’m sure true to form the police will have zero interest.

Designed specifically for the Specialized Enduro 26/650b/29. I've been running this on a 2015 Enduro 650b and found it to be a huge improvement over the stock Cane Creek DB Inline. Very simple to set up, 3 compression settings, low speed compression and rebound. This shock is 3 months old and in excellent condition (like new!) and comes fully boxed with instructions. It also comes with a spare frame linkage from a 2015 Specialized Enduro elite 650b, and a 457lb spring. Dirt Mag review here: http://dirtmountainbike.com/products/product-reviews/specialized-ohlins-ttx-shock-business-class.html/2#PHxvYcxe3RwL0HYG.97 Price includes postage so grab a bargain! Any questions feel free to ask. Note due to the proprietary connection this will only fit an appropriate Specialized frame, 2015 onwards for sure, I cannot guarantee it will fit earlier frames so please check, the shock fits into the frame linkage and is bolted from behind via square connector (see pic). This represents the top of the tree for mountain bike suspension and are a very rare sight in the classifieds!

Scott Launch 27.5" Plus Bikes
being a competitive sort of guy I like to measure myself against other riders, but with so many standards, wheel sizes and travel options there is no longer a level playing field. Having the 'right' bike for a particular trail will absolutely make you faster, and it seems to be more and more about the bike than the rider. And so it is that I'm finding myself out on the road bike more and more, where give or take a couple of lbs everyone is riding the same bike and its all about the rider. Bit like comparing NASCAR to Formula 1. As I already own a fatbike ill stick my neck out and suggest the 27+ will be sh1t in the mud, but great on dry dusty trails.

Opinion: 26 vs 27.5 vs 29-inch Wheels
what does "wheel corrected geometry' mean? I would assume the smaller the wheel the slacker the head angle in order to make a better comparison. If all head angles are the same though the bigger wheels are more likely to be faster down hill. Is BB height the same off the ground on all bikes, or the same relative to axle height? Geometry is the single most important aspect of a bike and these numbers arent supplied so its difficult to see if this was a valid test or not. Oh and for the record Im getting very bored of reading about 29er bikes. Im sure in another decade once everyone is riding 29ers, we will be resold 26ers as the new best thing offering 'better handling, more playful etc etc". Same thing happened in the kitesurf industry.
