Do we know if the Spartan 29, will take 27.5+ wheels, as well (i.e 27.5x2.8)?
The Troy 29 can, but for the Spartan 29, there is no such mention in their website...

Thanks for your note. I want riding local enduro trails mostly, several times per year the alps and maybe some race. But need that bike will bw capable for longer daily rides. So pretty allround. I was reading that the spartan is pretty compact, so probably will decide beetwen tbe foxy and sc.
I guess if you want it as a very capable allroundbike, I dont think the XL will be too short. If you want it as an enduro race bike, it will probably a bit too short for your height, as you cant upsize...

I would go medium if its going to be my only bike. But I have a 2019 Trek Remedy for allround use. So I want something more progressiv and fast, thats why I probably would upsize and go with a Large.

Yeah, actually I think the reach is ok, but the TT effective (639/636) measure is pushing me back from buy the bike as I am afraid from non-comfort during pedaling. Hopefully more experiences from taller riders will come soon.

Has anyone tried a 29x2.6 tire on the rear of the Spartan? Aluminum build
Will it fit? I have one on order and have some 29x2.6s I wanted to put on it, but they say 2.5 is the max rear tire size, seems a little odd considering it's super boost?
