- Anyone ridden the Mojo Nicolai yet?
I think hybrid works on the G16 becasue you’re putting a 160mm fork & 29er wheel in place of a 180, fork with 27.5 wheel, so there’s no dramatic change in the stack or BB. A 27.5 wheel on the back of a G13 is a significant BB drop, maybe too much in terms of pedal strikes..Posted 6 days agobilboMember
I’d agree although worth noting that G13 is designed as a 29er so has BB drop of -30mm based on 29″ wheels, G16 BB drop is -17mm as primarily designed around 27.5″ wheels. G16 obvs hugely versatile but you don’t get the full benefits of a 29er (not sure if you can adjust for BB drop using offset shock bushings etc..?), with G16 as hybrid you probably get best of bothPosted 6 days agoMing the MercilessSubscriber
Looking at the Pinion HT’s as a forever winter bike. I’m mainly South Downs so wonder if the GLF geometry would be suitable. Also at 5’7 not sure on sizing. Suspect I’d be a L in the Pinion AM (to achieve similar to my 2015 M Enduro) or a M in the GLF but that head angle makes me think it’ll be too lazy a front end……
any advice greatly appreciated (and yes I’ll try for a test ride if I can)Posted 3 days agoRubber_BuccaneerSubscriber

I’m 5’8″ and have a small(long) Ion GPI (Geometron) and have never wanted the next size up. I also have a Sick titanium Pinion hardtail in medium that is pretty similar dimensions to the small Ion. I’d certainly suggest trying to get some sort of demo before going bigger, longer may well suit you but worth checking.
For reference I also ride mostly on the South Downs as that’s where I live and don’t find the geometry a hinderance (maybe the added weight is but I’m not bothered). Steyning, QECP, Surrey Hills, etc it’s more likely an advantage and I have found steep seat tubes a climbing advantage too.Posted 3 days ago
