Curious to see your thoughts on the Firebird. Was a good bike, but didn't feel like it fell into that true 170mm category when I rode it. Felt more like a long travel trail bike to me personally. The Recluse on the other hand....

I got it pretty dialed. I had to run a 1mm extra spacer behind the guide to clear the frame, then I just used a couple 1mm thick plastic 30mm spacers between the drive arm and he BB. Run flawless all season and is so minimal that the spacing isn't a big deal. Highly recommend the MRP though

Agreed on their sizing. Have gotten much better since they came out with 2.4s and such. Measurement is from a Rekon+ that is set up tubeless, been sitting on the shop floor at 20-30psi for close to a month now. Had it sitting next to a Mojo 3 with 2.8 schwalbe nics. The difference surprised me, so pulled out the calipers and started comparing. I could see them getting a bit bigger after riding but not that much. On the bike it doesn't look like a true "plus" tire. More like a higher volume 2.5 on a wide rim. Wtb etc...
*nothing against their tires, always liked how they ride. Mixing it up lately though

Damn, surprised I missed that. Hope to see it gain traction. Be great to see a few phased out in option of that.
Gonna catch flack, we need another standard. Yes, seriously. Threaded BB shells that are a larger diameter. 30mm spindles are a plus, threaded bbs are a plus. 30mm spindles in a normal BSA, huge negative....
I was going to tag you in this for that reason there, knew you would be smiling inside for that one, haha.
On the note of "plus tires" and 2.6" tires. - maxxis "2.8" measures 2.55 wall to wall, on a 35mm ID rim. So what are their 2.6s, relabeled 2.4s?? A WTB convict or breakout in 2.5 on a 30-35mm rim measures barely over 2.5. And schwalbe is similar.
Things that should be out for 2016, not knowing how to label your shit correctly, that's so #2011 #getittogether
Schleyble Top. Calling it a table top is a disgrace to all the OG riders who could make it look good. Also, does he only have one Benz? I'd assume he has a US one and one for Europe...

Made me do a double take when I saw it in person yesterday. Looks cool, reminds me of the old 2.7s and 3s from rampage back in the day. Rear tire is pretty well touching the rear tri though

Thanks man, appreciate that! It's vinyl wrapped. I masked and spray painted anywhere I couldn't reasonably wrap, was the super bright yellow before.
