- Show me your B+ hardtails
Thinking about a change from the 29er, although I do enjoy riding it a lot. Would be interested in seeing what folk are riding in B+ bikes, or bikes that will take either 29 or B+
Ideally slack ish 120/140 fork ok for lakes and trails riding with a bit of bikepacking Santa Cruz Chameleon looks ace but a bit spendy for my tight scottish routes!
I dont read bike mags much any more so a bit out of the loop. Whats good?Posted 1 year ago
Which do you prefer Stu?
It’s hard to say, but It’s maybe a little more fun with the +
Normally use 29er wheels when it’s muddy and B+ the rest of the time.
I’ve not ridden it with + wheels for a while but I re fitted them yesterday so if it pisses down for the next month you can blame me.Posted 1 year agoAlexSubscriber

This is really my daughters but I ride it more than she does. It’s a Medium Solaris Max. I’d like a large to go with it 🙂 Ride it loads in the local woods, it’s an absolute blast. Also run it 29 in the winter but I much prefer it on the chubbies.Posted 1 year agonewworldlobsterMember

Trek Stache. 29+, 29 or 650b+. I prefer 29+ to 650b+, it’s just so much fun to ride, and massively more capable than a bike that looks like it’s only for total nichemongers. It’s my winter bike and I use it in the Dark and White Peak, but a mate of mine has taken it up Helvellyn twice and taken it down Dollywagon and it just lapped it up.
Mine’s been upgraded with a 40mm stem and 780mm bar, which really sorts it out.

Just bought a whyte 905, off the back of a demo when I smashed all my PRs on a route I often do. To be fair the cotic solaris that I also demo’d (in chubby mode) was also excellent, but out of stock and waiting for the new longer reach version to be announced I believe.Posted 1 year agorosscopecoSubscriber
Another bouncy stooge…my 4th one so far…this one is a keeper.
Pic from my ‘longer than usual’ commute this morning.

Another pic from a recent Torridon trip before I changed from the Jones bars to the Stooge Moto bars. Still undecided on which bars are better.

Last pic is just a nice pic, IMO!

Hi all, thanks for pics good to see what is out there. Rode the Jennride at the weekend and saw a good variety of bikes form 26 to 29+ and everything in between.
Still enjoyed riding my 29er but its at the point of needing a good bit of attention or replacement ,im erring in that direction 🙂Posted 1 year ago
