That is one ugly bike. It looks very cheesy. Something from wal mart.

Your ignorance is boundless. Anyone who knows Devin Lenz and Lenz Sport knows that his innovation, quality and attention to detail are second to none.

If you were to believe a lot of people here, you could do that, plus the Crankworx Slopestyle, race Paris to Dakar and the ISDE on it. 29ers are for everything, man.

Then you REALLY need the 29er. I bet that thing would be a bear to bunnyhop, but it's all good since you don't need to bunny hop as high to get over the same size obstacle on a 29er.

FF and Nitro circus are my two favorite shows to watch on tv behind The Office. Endless amounts of money and many just as dumb but awesome friends as myself would be the dream.

I was going to recommend a Fox 40 lowered to 100mm but your idea is even better. I would lower the Dorado's travel to 100mm and be sure to pick up a model with "lock-out".
