It’s my first 29er dude and it’s exceptional! I won’t going back...

Hi mate, sorry about the late reply!

I have 2.4” Goodyear Newton’s fitted and there’s not a lot of clearance left. I’m guessing you probably could fit a 2.5 back there but it would be close. Probably best to email the boys at Stanton and see if they’ve tried...

Weight wise I’m at 16.2kg with DH tires.

Suspension is exceptional. It pedals Extremely well and is plush enough on the decents. Very capable for a 140mm travel bike.

Hi mate,
She’s long.... 1300mm wheelbase, 63.7ish on the head angle. Short stem and 76 degree seat angle keep the cockpit in check. Geo works really well!

Hi mate, glad you like my setup! The 4 speed works really well for this bike. With a 32t up front and 19t-13t at the back I can clear all the steepest pinches at my local spot and still have enough pedal to keep the downs interesting. I tried single speed but I like to have a little more pace on the DH so it never really worked for me. This was my compromise, I love it set up this way. As a bonus the gearing works really well for ripping around the streets too.., perfect range for wheelies and messing about.

I haven't weighed it. It's no weight weenie I'm guessing around 14-15kg, but it charges like a DH bike and climbs well enough! I've smashed all my PR's and done it with a huge grin on my face.
