Dave’s 29+

This was a fun one – and should be fun to ride, too.

Usual clean shop. Sigh.

Geometry geeks:
-68 HTA, 703mm front center, 103mm of trail. Yup. For going fast and falling off crap.
-42cm chainstays. That’s right. Knards probably won’t clear by much with the sliders slammed but he should be able to run with decent clearance at 42.5-43cm. The newer 2.8-ish 29+ tires will probably fit ok slammed.
-SS or 1x only, and only room for a 26t chainring. Yowza.
-62cm effective toptube.
-Built for a 140mm fork, tapered of course.

That’s wide.

In short, this bike is for being dumb with big fat tires and big speed high in the mountains in CO. Freeride hardtail meets fatbike? All I know is I wish it was mine!
