    28 vs 32 spokes and the 32 spoke 305 is 50g lighter.
    The inner rim widths are the same, but the 305 is wider on the outside, not sure how that effects things too much.

    I think it's just a stronger wheel, but maybe then still not worth the extra dollars.

    I'm on a 2018 Yeti SB5+, upgraded to DPX2 shock, Fox 36 @ 160mm, blah blah. I'm 200-220lbs with gear.

    Bike still rips, I absolutely love it everytime I ride it. It still has factory SRAM Guide brakes on it from 2018. 200f/180r. I'm completely comfortable with SRAM brakes and the maintenance (I bleed em oftem).

    Has anyone went from Guides to say Code RSC's and can comment? I know people are going to say go XT or Saints, but I'd like to stay with SRAM. Maybe for the next bike I'll switch from SRAM/X01 to Shimano/XTR and see what happens.

    ask @Pugga about his. He just purchased a Polygon for within your budget and it is a pretty loaded bike for the price!

    (in response to aturk above)
    I have CODE Rs. Not directly related but similar. The rears can get noisy when dusty intermittently. I blew them out with air then later washed them well with orange cleaner and zero noise ever since.

    Anyway they stop my jackass 175# hide and backpack just fine.

    I can feel it is almost time for some adjustment and may need a bleed this fall plus I bought some new rear pads I may throw in.

    I ride almost every day.

    Think the 67lb rating per Ebike is nice though. :p

    I just got the Polygon Siskiu T7 and love it! I’m also coming from a very dated bike but the new ride seems very competent. I liked it because it had a good base of options, 1x drive train, boost wheels, adjustable air suspension, tubeless ready, dropper post and modern geometry.

    yoo the commencal is looking mighty fine. can swap from 27.5 to 29 with the same frame? yes please. the older frame had the seat collar welded on to the seat tube, looks like they went away with that on these new frames.

    frame only isnt available until november/december. that may be my christmas gift this year...

    Edit, maybe it was the guerrilla gravity pedal head that had the seat collar welded on

    yea thats a pretty good one.

    you can find a dropper post that works with it in the future too if you find yourself doing a lot of downhill stuff. a dropper is a seat post that goes up and down. this allows you to move your center of gravity and control the bike a bit better. (with the seat up, you sit on it to apply pressure, push the thumb lever in, and the seat goes down. with the seat down, you stand on the pedals, no pressure on the seat, push the same lever and the seat comes back up. you want the seat up when youre pedaling and down when your standing on the pedals going downhill).

    That's it, that bike is ready for anything. Rowdy if need be.

    honestly, a one up dropper post is probably better than anything commensal would've offered on that bike and cheap too. He can wait and ask for that around a birthday or christmas.

    A buddy of mine got that bike and I helped him set it up, seems like a super fun bike. Forgot all about that one. The left crank arm keeps falling off on his, but he also had that issue with another bike so I think it’s more him and not the bike haha.

    Aluminum? Solid?

    I think they put the heat to that weld and well maybe..............well hard to say but a bolt and a weld............you would think 5 years even if you drove a lot......depends on the alloy but almost looks like a stress corrosion fracture.

    Damn, some shit needs to be steel or other alloy.

    not enough.
    well that's just scary. Some of the comments are saying it's a poor weld? Other's are blaming the 1.25" hitch. I'll have to do somethign ot make sure mine is in good working order...somehow. :/

    Woof.... Bike delete is never good...Guess everything got a breaking point.

    I know my rack flops around like a salmon behind the motorhome... I got the anti rattle MAXXHAUL 50023 Tightener Anti Rattle Stabilizer for 1.25" to 2" Hitches Helps a ton... Better take a look at the old Yakima. Pretty sure its old enough to vote. :bananadead:
