29er DH bike. In the ACG deparment (A.dvanced C.oncepts G.roup)
"7″ of travel and we’re pretty sure it will be spec’ed with flat bars when it hits the market"
Size Large and up I assume?
Broken until next season
This was shown last year on RM, if I remember, it's a prototype that will likely never see production.
What is a 29er?
Sweet looking frame, rear set up is wicked. What is up with that front fork?
I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

^^ In that it's a Dorado?
Intense and other johnny-come-latelys playing with it too:
Devin Lenzat Lenz Sport in CO has been in production with his PB&J. He bought into 29ers with both feet:
And an obligatory tip-o'-the-hat to the original . . . in CF no less . . .
29er downhill bike? that's it, the 26" is dead.
but seriously....cool looking bike.
the problem with a down hill 29er is you get the worst of both worlds...the heavyness of the downhill with the sluggishness of the 29er. it will never make it.
a 29er works great with 130mm fork and down...a huge fork with 29" wheels....i don't see it as anything anyone would want.
a 650b however, makes sense. you get a larger wheel, but not that much larger (650 b is closer to a 26 than a 29, it's like 1" bigger) and it's still agile and maneuverable.
