The 27.5 MTB has hit its stride in the off road circuit as the perfect tire size for medium size riders. Smaller than 29ers, and larger than 26", makes it nimble and stout enough to roll over anything it its path. The coolest thing about this bike was how John Munz (the owner of this beaut) brought NYC and Boston builders together. He is a long time friend and supporter of FireFly up in Boston and wanted to spice it up with some custom anodized titanium components. After shipping the bike up to B-Town and slapping some sauce on a custom seat post, stem and bars, the boys had myself and Mr. Munz up for a shop visit and took us out on some trails to test the new ride before filling us up with some vegan tacos! Yum!!!!
I have to say the FireFly shop is one of the most impressive shops I have seen and those boys make a mean Ti bike! On top of that they are super rad dudes. Thanks for the shred, thanks for the ano, thanks for the tacos.

The bike is specced out with a full TrueTemper OX plat tube set, Custom turned 44mm head tube, Paragon Machine works Low Mounted Disc dropouts, 15mm Reba Air Rock Shocks Fork with hydro handlebar lockout and full XTR. Special thanks to Mr. John Munz for his vision, Ben Falcon working for us here at Horse Custom Paint and Firefly for the Spicy snacks! Check out the slide show for more pics, or our fliker to see some other builds. Keep your eye out for Team Tomez + size 29er coming in a few weeks!
