Assuming you're correct in your assumption (big guy on 6" rockers bashing through the woods) then I wonder why he didn't go for the X5 with the full X-braced frame? Weight saving I guess?Internal14 said:Looks good!
Sheesh...6'9"? Definetly a candidate for a custom frame.
....or the new 'stock' 23" framed El Capitan!
But look slike he's got the 6"" rockers on there? If so then maybe he's a big guy bashing through the woods, which I think the 26" wheels would probably last longer in the woods than a 29" wheel from what I've seen.
Can I ask what rim you're using? And also hub/spokes and the lacing of the wheel?ozlongboarder said:I have been bashing the crap out of my rigid 29er for a year now, the rear has been trued once and that was early on. Unless your a mother hucker 29" wheels will be fine for trail riding.
