Hello friends, I am riding Magnum Peak 27.5 for more than a year , I am riding mainly off road and I have 2 questions :
  1. I am looking to change the tires and I want to put much wider one , can you suggest me if it is possible on the peak ? what wide 2.6/2.8? and if you suggest to do it ? anyway tried?
  2. Since I am riding off road , I am looking for good suspension seatpost , can you suggest / recommend ? also for a good seat / saddle.

I have the ncm moscow plus 27.5 that is mostly the same bike, and I installed 2.35 tires. They fit and the bike runs smoothly but I don't think you will be able to fit much wider tires. Mines are almost touching the frame.

I installed the suntour sp 12 seatpost and it is one of the best upgrades I have ever done to a bike. Now I make it to every new bike I buy. It is cheap and the result is amazing.

Good luck!

thanks for the info ,
for tires , I wanted to try even 25 wide , but I am not sure if it will work
for the suntour, I have that for several months and it is nice but not enough ... I was reading for much better seatpost suspensions and wanted to get some feedback here

In my NCM I am pretty sure it won't work, the 2.35 is too close to the frame. I also did notice some performance decrease.

Regarding the seatpost, the next one in quality is the cane creek thudbuster. I tried it in a friend's bike and I did not notice enough difference to pay for the extra cash from the suntour, but I only tried a few minutes.

Cheers!

Hi,

I didn't know about kinekt (first time heard). Looks very good as well as expensive :D

P.D: One problem with the suntour is that the steps to adjust the angle of the seat are big and you cannot get the exact angle you want, so I ended up with the seat angled up a little.
