Not really. Maybe for a park/play bike, but certainly not for a dedicated race bike. To my point, Minnaar is running nearly 18" CSs on his V10. I think 17.5" offers a great mix of "locked in" turns while still being able to get them around tighter...more

Jared Graves and Anne Caroline Chausson. Both incredibly well-rounded and successful at multiple disciplines.

Added reply in a thread do you flip your bike upside down to put on your front wheel? 6/4/2015 7:45 AM
Upright for me. Not a fan of flipping the bike over for the reasons you mention.

BB came in at 13.5" - when under sag it was on the lower side (165mm of travel). Not shockingly low but on the lower side.

Not the first or last time any one, ever and in any sport wins a race because of other rider's mistake or bad luck. That doesn't make the win any less significant.

The 27.5" Deemax wheels aren't in production yet so who knows? I'd guess when they are released there's a good chance they'll be using a slightly wider rim than the current 26" version.

probably not a coincidence Nasty. Yeti probably read your comment and upped the travel when you showed them the light.
