how burly can you build up the mach 5, anyone running a 36 on it? What is the largest tire you can run on it
I am running a 160 Lyric with a 2.4 f/2.35 rear combo.

In my opinion the 160 fork makes this frame perfect:thumbsup:

I am running a 150 Revelation with 2.4 Nobby Nics front and rear. I would certainly like to try a burlier 160 - seems like it would work with the bike well.

160 fork puts the bike in the 68 degree head angle range, which for me is perfect.

Did a ride yesterday that involved a ton of super steep climbs, with tight technical bits thrown in, where I would typically lower the fork on other bikes. Did not have to adjust the fork height on the M5 one bit. I just kept on the power all day :thumbsup:
