I've been on a Hope 34t for 4 years and it's still essentially perfect.
Had RaceFace drop chains after a year.
Tried BlackSpire and had no issues but wanted to move from 32 to 34 so also moved to Hope.
6'3 with an armspan a bit more than my height and I'm rolling on 760mm bars.
I had 800 on the DH bike when I had it built, and while it offered great stability, turning was certainly compromised.
20mm doesn't seem like much but I reckon I'd top out at 780mm if I went wider again.
I was actually stuck on what music to use, but had a rough idea of what I wanted to do... My gf suggested Bodies and provided the example of '1, nothing wrong, 2 etc'... So I rolled with it.
I reckon it came up alright. Nice fun vibe.
Could have done a bit more fine tuning with the cuts, but...
Had a pretty sick day doing Blue Dirt shuttles at Mount Buller yesterday with the crew... kinda feels like @Scotty T post above... hah.
Great day full of laughs, crashes, and all-round fun times on the bike!
I even made an edit that YouTube butchered! :D
Not a rep, just work for distro.
I'm using the Tribe in 47 which is my standard EU size and they fit great.
Narrower than my Freeriders and more of a snug fit, but they're really comfortable. I even use them for hiking, haha.
I tried on the Clan when they first arrived around nearly 12...
