Yeah I'm going to change out the handlebars eventually, the front derailler, and at some point the crankset. I'd like to get it all SRAM, but that's just a fantasy. It'll be years before that happens.

Well for now you can just enjoy it as it is. Would like to know if the 29" wheels make a difference over 26"?

Bill you have no idea. I have noticed a Huge difference. Things happen on this bike that I never before thought possible. It is amazing. It easily clears sections that were difficult before. I am forever converted.

Awesome. Guess that would makes sense being the wheels are bigger. You are talking about height or tire coverage?

Both you have more tire making contact with the ground, and your angle of attack his lower. It's great

I just converted to a tubeless system on this bike. I haven't test rode it yet, but I'm excited to feel if there is any difference.

Yeah, I uses the Stans tubeless kit. So I am now able to run lower tire pressure and no more pinch flats.

That is one nice ride. I happen to be in the market for a new ride to replace my FSR & the Epic is calling my name!
