    I was under the impression that it wouldn't change since the crown to fork of a 140mm Pike is the same as the crown to fork of the 160mm Mattoc. If anything I thought it'd maybe steepen it by a half...

    Is that based of your assumed increase in crown to axle length? Mainly just asking because the Mattoc Pro I have on there is 555mm crown to axle and the 29Ē Pike is 551mm so itís actually shorter no?...

    Yeah, I guess I'm just hung up on not having ever ridden a bike with a bb height more than 345ish. But that wasn't necessarily a conscious thing. I might ask around here locally to see if someone has...

  11. Bike Geo Question - BB Height/Wheel Diameter/Travel

    Hey all, hoping there's some bike geometry nerds out there. I'm toying with the idea of putting some 29" wheels on my Pyga Hyrax. I know this will lead to about a 19mm increase in BB height due to...

    I've gotten the 27/27.5 Scarpa Intuition and the 27 Tour Wrap in my 27.5 shell. Tour Wrap fits a little better since the sole of the Scarpa liner has about 2-3 more mm of foam.
