Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I wonder if it's available with compact frame geometry? That way it would be a better fit for more people, or at least people who tend toward being giants.

80cm, as per Bicycling Magazine. Special ordered oversized tubing... the extras are being used to build bikes for less-famous giants.

I bet he'd be fun to draft behind. And I bet he doesn't get any guff from cagers.

Did they take a stock bike, cut it up, weld extensions, then finish it up? Why the brake bosses if it was totally custom?

the bottom part of the fork looks totally normal... it just has a crazy-long steerer tube. so they used whatever was strong, that sort of non-suspension fork usually comes with both v-brake bosses and disc mounts.

i'm guessing the rear seatstays came prefab out of a catalog somewhere, with the brake mounts already on them

well, the steerer tube is longer than the fork itself (its got a chris king headset)

They could have totally done a better job with the cables

Do you think its a 29'er?

judging by the bontrager-branded tires, it might be... they're still one of the only sources for the 29 inch tires. there's at least 3 or 4 models of bontrager 29 inch rims now, some are disc specific. so far i've only seen them on gary fisher hardtail bikes, with a special lengthened rock shox Reba fork in the front.
