Just for reference in case anyone is considering future upgrades to their 2020/2021 Specialized Fuse 27.5, the Shimano Deore 4 piston brakes will just fit in the rear with a spacer for a 180mm rotor on a size Large frame (160mm rotor still on in the pictures) The angle of the seat stay might make it too tight on smaller sizes.

Also, a 180mm Oneup V2 Dropper post with V2.1 actuator will go down to about 6mm between the bottom of the collar and the seat post clamp before it hits the top water bottle boss (without the screw installed or with a shorter screw). It will go down to about 16mm with the top water bottle screw installed.

For reference I ran the TranzX 120mm seat at about 50mm below the collar which is equivalent seat height to the Oneup V2 180mm post with 20mm below the collar. (6’2” 32” inseam)

I found a used 140mm Manitou Mattoc Comp online and was looking to buy it to upgrade from the Judy Silver TK on my Fuse 27.5. The spec sheet on Worldwide Cyclery shows that it has a 48mm offset vs the 42mm on the original fork and an axle to crown length of 509mm on the 120mm version vs 520mm on the original fork(am I wrong to think that the length would be close to 529mm on the 140mm version because of the added 20mm of travel. Does anybody have knowledge on how these changes would affect the geometry of the bike?

I'm also looking to upgrade the rear hub with an industry nine 1/1 but I don't really want to replace the whole rear wheel. Would it be possible to lace the new hub into the original rim.

Just put myself in the queue for a '21 Expert after hopping on a Large. Plan is to compliment my '19 Stumpy ST and mostly run it SS w 2.6s, that is if it ever shows up. Going to downsize the heard a bit.

Pedaled shop owner/friends large around with the rear end tucked all the way in, first pedal strokes was laughing as I wheelied across the lot (I'm not particularly great). Should be fun for riding trails and pump tracks w/ my kids

Well figured I'd finally share a pic of my build. Been riding for 1-2 months and the rigid plus is quite fun on my sandy non-techy trails. This is the 2020 A1 frame running 29x3 front and 29x2.6 rear. Got it hovering just under 25lb w pedals.

Really liking my new Expert Fuse. Upgraded to Ultimate Pike 140mm, XTR brakes and RaceFace cranks and new Roval Carbon wheels. Its a beast now!!!

How do you like the Roval carbon wheels? Are they your first set of carbon wheels?

I have a Henty Enduro as I'm not a fan either. The webbing really helps prevent the pack from bobbing all over the place.
I have a Henty Enduro too and I love it as it allows my back to breath versus a Camelbak that felt smothering especially on hot days.
