Guys, am planning to replace my ageing 26ers.
But looking at the 2020's XC choices a lot of these bikes comes in 29er. The problem is I'm very short fella standing at 160cm. Is riding a 29 would really be a problem for people like me? Reading from international forums, really have mixed opinions.
Currently thinking of getting between scott spark / scale or even a spesh epic HT.
Other suitable choice would be trek procaliber that comes in 27.5 for the smallest size.

I'm 158cm i ride all 26" full susp, 27.5" full sup and 29" hardtail mtb. My 29er is an GIANT hardtail size XXS..so far no problem since the geometry frame is very slanted down on the top tube for height clearance. 29'er rolls easy on any off-roading especially downhill and should be manageable even for short rider. Only the acceleration can be a bit slower than 26'er. Recommended to lower the stem height and front fork travel length for XC to match short rider height. flex.gif

Best balance of performance and budget is MAXXIS brand, i used them a lot from 1.95 to 2.2, you can get them between rm90 ~ rm120 from bicyclebuysell.com

I see thanks.
How do I choose the size of my tire? Can I use a 2.2 tire to replace my currently 1.95 tire?

Yes, you can but you need to push harder for wider tires. I am using 2.25 Maxxis Ardents after Schwalbe prices kept going up. Surprisingly, I find the performance is also as good as Schwalbes but like all, tire pressure is important. Even my wife says the Maxxis Aspen 2.1s is just as good as the Schwalbe Racing Ralphs of the same size. Much cheaper too, almost one for two prices nowadays.

I started off using 27.5 and I find it harder to go uphills so I switch back to 26, using the same fork but has since change to 26 inch frames though. I think I will use 26 till tires stop production but I doubt it will be soon though.

Hi guys,

Just want to ask Shimano Deore XT FC-M770 crankset compatible with 10/11/12 speeds system?

Or the crankset only can use on 9 speeds?

Compatible in what sense? Using the chainrings of these speeds? If it is... check the BCD... a quick google shows a 104mm or 96mm BCDs...

The m770 seem have PCD 104mm. But the new model XT seem have PCD 96mm. That mean the old XT model m770 can't compatible with the new XT RD/cassettle/chain ?

MAS sports equipment allowance sucks. They say its "free" but they count it under your luggage allowance. You will have to pay excess baggage for anything over luggage allowance. Will get very expensive as they charge 8 to 14 USD per KG for Asian destinations and 20+ to EU and overseas.

from what i understand, crankset doesnt really affect anything, even if it does it will be the chainring
