I like riding rocky or rooty trails so my Switch9er is the best for me. Some friends say 29er is too big and they prefer 650b for a "fun" or "playful" ride. I also feel my bike is not so nimble sometimes but I love it.

Of course I am still enjoying my bike!

If I can say in one word, stable.
I used to ride Slackline 26er original for few years, and I felt a bit unstable for my height 6'2''(188cm).
I wanted to ride a bigger tyre bike. Of course I considered 650b hardtails but I thought the difference was subtle, so I choose biggest 29er.
I hope this helps, cheers!

One more thing, a brand-new chainring may not fit CN-M9100 well. My Hope chainring teeth are nice worn ones and have no issues.

Thanks for the nice comment, mate!

The new XTR M9100 works well with the Hope cranks, so far. The shifting is flawless, and you can pedal backwards on the 51T cog as many times as you like.

I heard that some chainrings didn't work with a Shimano's genuine link, eg White Industries' one.

Amazing build. I bet it is fantastic to ride.

Quick question. Do the Hope cranks and chainring work well with the XTR M9100 cassette, chain and rear mech? I’m considering the same set up for a bike I’m building. New XTR cranks are not available. I’ve had Hope cranks on a previous bike and really liked them.
