29 with clearance for 27.5+ seems to be all the rage these days. Fun way to have 2 bikes in one (though IMO the 27.5×3, 29×2, 26×4 bike is the way to go if you really want the Swiss army knife effect!) This one is an all-arounder with Rohloff capabilities as well as the usual […]

Sarah’s new bike getting packed up in the background. Rohloff, 29+/26×4, loads of mounts for everything imaginable… should be fun! Loads of […]
Short-stay (though he’s running the wheel slammed…back?) 29er, baby! Bar ends are so 1995 I like DT cable routing on these curved-toptube bikes
