Hey that wrap you had done is outstanding!My new sb150 build. This bike really is a hoot to ride where I live. I also have a 5.5.
175 dropper in a med frame size
Assegai 2.5 front
Trusty DHR 2.4 rear
SRAM XX1 axs, I love this stuff.
Xtr trail pedals
Renthal bars and stem
The yellow is a wrap I did.
for all their help/advice!azdog
Surprised it's taking so long for this to catch on. In my experience demo'ing bikes in M and L sizes back-to-back, I've consistently found that one size felt simply more balanced and intuitive than the other in corners and on bumpy rolling terrain. Can just stay centered on the bike and let go; my control of the bike took relatively less effort on the balanced & intuitive bike. The SB150 was one bike that I clearly noted where the medium handled more effortlessly than the L. It was an exception from the norm. Almost every other bike felt more intuitive and balanced in size L, including the SB130. I had presumed that sizing-up was what you did to go faster, but that article echoed my beliefs that it was something else based on these exceptions. I just don't know how to word it to explain it clearly to others...
