Having changed from a 2018 Scott Genius to a Deviate Highlander i'll chuck my 2 cents in, all my components stayed the same as i just swapped the frame, plus geometry is very similar (reach within 5mm, head angle, BB hieght and stack all very close, ... more »

No mention of weight anywhere for these? probably means they're heavy sad tech 3 lever vs tech 4 weight would be nice to see.

In their case incorporating the remote cable for the twinlock was probably a factor...

This is super interesting, I did a similar experiment when I got my 2018 Scott genius in 29” but had my old bikes 27.5” wheels so a swapped them around, the genius’ flip chip helped to balance out the changes too, part of it might of been affected by moving to a new bike with a longer reach and different angles at the same time as experimenting with wheel sizes however I really liked the 69er setup but even with the chip in the steeper setting it slackened the bike out a little too much unless I was riding quite steep trails, in the end i settled on both 29 but mostly as it created a more balanced bike on the majority of trails I was riding (a mix between trail centre and steep off piste stuff) in conclusion I think the geometry matters more than wheel size, if more bikes are designed with purely mixed wheels in mind and setup exactly for that then I think they could be great but untill then will ride what the bike is designed for, on another note with 150 travel rear tyre buzz isn’t so much of an issue but on anything longer travel I would for sure be more inclined to stick with the 27.5 rear.

Love that Brayton is getting good results and buys a mustang but kinda shown up by Gwin buying a McLaren.

I was thinking the same, might just be the angle of the photo making the front wheel look smaller (or the rear bigger) but could be testing a new idea or just the fact 29" DH forks aren't really available but wanted to try 29" version of the frame. is ... more »
