Been mulling over a change in setup for the coming season.
My bike came equipped with 27.5+ wheels, 2.8" tires. The frame will support 29ers up to 2.35", so I’ve been considering going with a reverse mullet setup as a relatively inexpensive way to get into 29" riding.
Just wondering if anyone has experience riding a setup like this on local trails (McIntosh, Whopper, Railyard, Empire are by far my most ridden trails) and if so, is this a viable setup?
I’d probably leave the rear tire as-is for now, and scale down to match the width of the front at some point if that even matters.
I figure a Stan’s front wheel and a good grippy tire should be a decent upgrade compared to the house wheels and Kenda rubber that came stock.
