    Hi, I like how you’ve built this up and I’m thinking of getting a Stooge myself. Currently on a Kona Explosif (2015 bike) but I miss the big wheels. I’m happy enough with a rigid fork. I had a 29 Inbred before – could I ask you how you think the Stooge compares to that or to the Singular Swift? Is it a long-distance XC rig or better suited to shorter blasts? Regards, Tim
