    This bike handles like a 26″ and rolls through the most technical terrain out there! It feels a few pounds lighter than my full XTR 853 which is 24.5lbs. Can’t wait to rock this bike for the rest of the season!

    Looks awesome.

    Finally!!! I’m reall glad to see that someone took the plunge. That’d be how I’d build a 29er rocket.

  • jizzle says:

    is handling like a 26″ wheel bike the holy grail of 29″ wheel bikes?

  • Matthew Morgan says:

    That 29′er looks awesome, I might just have to make an Arizona trip and try one out, I’ve been looking for a bike that was all about form and function with out all the gimmic’s some current manufactures like to add to there bikes. With the roll over and clearance/ climbing abilities of a 29′er thats light enough to flick around like a 26′er would be the best of both worlds. Good luck you guys.

    Hey Scott
    Wouldn’t you want to ride it rather than “rock it”
