So many 29" wheeled bikes look a bit awkward because trying to fit big wheels in smaller frames give the bike an unbalanced look. The wheel size overpowers the frame size and trying to keep the bars low enough is challenging. Well, this bike had no problems with that. It's a huge frame that perfectly fits its 6'6" rider. The frame size is so big and with the large wheels, well, it just looks like a perfectly proportioned bike. The build is simple: XT 9-speed group, Fox fork w/ 15mm thru axle, White Industries hubs, Salsa Semi rims, WTB ExiWolf tires, WTB Pure V seat, Cane Creek Thudbuster LT post, Thomson stem and Ritchey bars. Simple and built to last a long damn time. The head tube is so tall that with two 10mm spacers and the Thomson stem, I only had to cut 5mm off the fork steerer tube.
