Great news that they will offer a retrofit for existing customers. I can't wait!

If that is really what you take away from these features, we might as well not bother doing them anymore. Why That Bike is all about our members, we cruise the bike check section looking for sweet rides that people have put some effort into customizing, and then we showcase those bikes in the feature to share...more

The bike itself is nice, that purple nail polish and yellowish green is the ugliest color scheme on any stock bike I've seen. Luckily the other available colors are good.

I've been on LB wheels since 2012 and they're all still going strong. I have a set of 33's, (the oldest and lightest, 1430g) a set of 38's, 1530g) and now a set of 46's, (40i) for my 26+ wheelset. The first 2 are built with Hopes and DT Supercomps and the plus wheelset is with Onyx and DT Aerolight's. Best wheelsets I've owned and the single best improvement to the bike. I would never go back to alloy.

Per wheelset, not wheel.

I've been riding the 27.5 variant of these rims for nearly 2 years as well in Oregon, and Northern California. Aside from some scuffs and love marks these wheels have been stiff and precise with no failure or issues of any kind. I'm thrilled with Light Bicycle's quality...more

Used these for a season in Whistler riding almost everyday. Finished about 500 laps, + Crankworx races, phat Wednesdays, and did a few BC cups.

They felt awesome to ride, I never had one flat or burp all season and was running pretty low tire pressures. Super solid, quick...more

How come you didn't mention that Maxxis has new 26+ sizes, (26 X 2.8) for the Minion DHF and DHRII. It would be nice if more people knew they were available. I have them and they are great tires. They won't drop the bb on a 27.5 frame, they roll fast and handle everything I've thrown at em. 26+ rips. P.s., 2.8 is better than 2.6

He is a cool dude. I met him on Backbone trail in the boo about a year ago. We were at the Latigo parking lot and he was asking for directions. He was on his TI FS Moots at the time. Big bike for a big guy. Anyway, he has some serious cardio, he was talking about his ride and he puts in some serious miles, especially for a big guy.

Cool vid, but maybe a good music track instead of the commentary for the next one.
