A 29er for the gloomy daze of winter

    Andrea is just making me green with envy!!!!! Add a Crisp Ti fork to this beautiful rig… and you just can go and rest in peace.
    Wishing you too all the healthiest trails for 2012!

    I forgot just one question: from the image I would say that the downtube may hit/contact the crown fork, albeit it also seems that the headtube is designed long enough on its lower part so no need for a tall crown race (?)… No issues then?

      Ciao Miguel,
      Good question. I calculate the fork crown height to clear most common fork applications. That way there won’t be any interference with the downtube. In this case, the downtube has been positioned 22mm above the bottom of the head tube. This, in most applications, is sufficient. This, however, depends on the frame geometry (head tube/down tube angle) and the fork type.
      Thanks for the questions and un abbraccio anche a te!!

    I’m changing point of view on Niners – I think that this is the future of mtb…
