29 and 650b is the future for a lot of mtb especially in places like LA where the trails are pretty mellow and a lot of fireroad climbs. I used to think I was too short to ride one (5'10") but then I saw World Cup women are winning on 29ers.
Do you have this listed on mtbr.com? I sell stuff there and it goes fast.

Forget the Rocky Mountain and get a carbon Santa Cruz...

I am going to throw it up on mtbr. The rocky mountain is getting amazing reviews except for tire clearance but that isn't an issue for me. I am part of a club that is pro dealing the bike so the cost is going to be great.

I'll get a pic up this weekend- promise! My little 4 month old takes up the evenings after work but I should get some time in a day or so.

It came with a belt drive but I prefer a traditional chain; changed it back recently for more variety of gear ratios. The newer Spots have a removable dropout so that you can convert back and forth from single-speed to 1 x 9...which might be nice if this is going to be your only bike. Whatever you do, make sure at least the front wheel of your 29er has a through axle quick release (such as 15mm). It makes a big difference as it cuts down on flex when you're out of the saddle climbing. I have a remote lockout on my fork which is also nice.

I recently drove my car into the garage and destroyed my other bike, a Yeti ASR. They offered me a discount on their latest ASR-5 model and I really like it. I'm not converted to 29ers yet; I still like to ride my 26" bike. It's nice to have both if you can swing it as they ride differently. You sit on top of a 29er and you sit "in" a 26er. They both handle differently. I was considering replacing my totaled 26er with a 29" full suspension bike but I thought I'd give the companies a few more years to dial in the technology.

Nice bikes. Did you destroy more than the frame?

The frame and fork were tweaked. The wheels, drivetrain, seat post, brakes. etc. were kept to build something for my wife. I've been trying to find a full suspension frame and fork for a "little person" (she's about 5'2"). I didn't realize this but a lot of bike companies have "crash replacement" programs where you turn in the destroyed frame and they'll discount a replacement frame.

Jay - that Spot looks great. Very clean and the lines look just right. Agree with the thru axle setup on the front. I actually like the 20mm stuff better but I tend to go overbuilt being 215 lbs and like railing corners hard and jumping little hits and stuff. 15mm is probably fine for most but I just hate having an extra "standard". Good hubs ain't cheap!

Sry to hear about the ASR. I've heard they are really good full sussy bikes. I totally agree with you on the 26" vs. 29" comments. I rode a Surly 29er years ago up in VT and it was fun. The 29'er seems to work well on a HT/SS setup - at least for me. I like the 26" fully sussy with big 2.3-2.5 tires for whipability.

I have an old Evil Soveriegn coming to the house and might set it up with 650b wheels or a 29" wheel up front. Just need to find a short fork so the geo isn't all thrown off.

Don-

I had to re-read that because I thought you were saying I had a "sissy" bike! Thanks for the compliments. That Spot comes spec'd with a 100mm travel fork which I didn't like. It's not the highest end fork, but I went with a Reba as I could get it in 80mm travel and the bike handles perfectly now- like a XC racing bike. I was going to go with a rigid fork if I was unable to find a shorter travel model but I was able to find the Rock Shox Reba and I'm happy I did.

Oh..and btw...

BARRY'S BIKE IS STILL FOR SALE!!!

If you haven't already, I would recommend posting it on pinkbike.com as well. You will have to deal with some punks but there are also some quality guys on there and many who love Turner

If someone on the board wants the bike I will ship it in a hard case that I paid three hundred for. This is at the $1100 price but a great deal.
