I dunno im sub 150 and run 28/30 on both my bikes. No cush core though. Even 24/27 which is what nsmb was saying he used to run would leave me nervous as hell in the bike park...I also don't enjoy squirmy tires in corners

To maintain the same BB height (relative to ground), a 29er will have more BB drop from axles compared to a 27.5 wheel bike.

29ers can handle fair but to say they will be just as nimble is a hard one to swallow. Phyics and rotational weight is hard to fix with simple geometry. I know for sure you won't see them at places like rampage or park bikes. There are some instances where larger wheels and tires wreck havock on fun.

It's using the 27.5 rear swing so had to mount on that for clearance. The front triangle is new for the 29" wheels.

Lots of complaints about this or that post not being included...I guess thats the trouble when you do group tests...difficult to include every single option on the market.
But I have to commend Vital for such an in-depth and comprehensive test. This is what PB seem so reluctant to do and what a lot...more

Stated they didn't include it because it does not come in a 150mm drop. Also have owned several it's really not that great of a post.

Yup, practically unbeatable if local support is a must have.
FWIW, that's what I've been running since last December, couldn't be happier

Wireless suffers from lots of interference issues. While a dropper it may not be as noticeable on. Things like brakes I would still want a hydraulic or mechanical connection.

Good and extensive review, but one of the best posts is missing: Vecnum Moveloc. It weights 560 grams with hardware and has 200 mm of extension, simple construction, full mechanical, no bleeding, ecc. My personal 1st place. :-D

Agreed. Wish I would have done that instead of the Fox lever.
Also, if you buy the non-kashima version, it's $284 + $65 for the Wolf Tooth = $349. Win.

Use a wolftooth lever with the fox and you have a matchmaker and Ispec Lever for the same price as the fox lever. Have one on mine. Has a better feel and look in my opinion also.
