    What kind of experience are you citing with your unsaid remark?

    It makes people feel good about themselves to bash on direct to consumer bike companies. But if the bikes ride well then I don't know what all the hate is about. I heard Motobecane will also be coming out with some 650b. At least there will be some affordable options out there since most 650b options are pretty expensive right now.

    My boss at work has a Fazzari 29r, been pretty happy with it. Don't really dig the name but the products looks pretty nice and have been reliable.

    Incredible spec for the price on that carbon bike. A 13.0" center of spindle BB height on a 150 mm travel bike is going to be a problem for a lot of riders, though.

    Not been impressed with Fezzaris I've seen on the trail or at friends houses. Geometry always seems like they took standard XC geometry angles and added more travel while keeping the same seat and head angles. Maybe if they did their own R&D they might find that this kind of geo ends up with a really twitchy bike when the suspension compresses. Friends have since sold their bikes and moved on to bikes with better geometry.

    Build spec cant be beat, direct to consumer model allows the companies to really splurge on their builds since they have limited overhead. But high end shifters and suspension doesnt mean much if they're mounted on a frame with funky geometry.

    If anyone has more info on the timp peak it would be appreciated....
    angles look good, but whats the chainstay, toptube and wheelbase?
    is that a horst link rather than their typical 4-bar?

    I have been looking into buying a Fezzari and contacted after seeing the new Timp Peak at this past years's Sea Otter. In response they sent me the following on the Timp:

    Frame Size Symbol 16 18 20
    Effective Top Tube(mm) TT 559 584 610
    Seat Tube (inches) ST 16 18 20
    Chain Stay (mm) CS 438 438 438
    Head Angle (degrees) HA 68 68 68
    Seat Angle (degrees) SA 72.5 72.5 72.5
    Head Tube Length (mm) HT 115 120 130
    Bottom Bracket Height
    (inches) BB 14 14 14
    Wheel Base (mm) WB 1133 1158 1186
    Stand Over Height
    (inches) SO 28.5 28.6 28.7

    I was informed that these numbers/data and the ability to purchase bike should be up on their site within the next couple of weeks.

    Hopes this helps.

    That is awesome, thank you.
    This contradicts the mtbr preview a little, which stated 67 ha and 13 bb....
    not thats its a huge deal, but the mtbr numbers were better for me.
    It's too bad thy didnt make an xl....i have been really liking a longer top tube with a shorter stem these days.
    Anyone care to comment on the strength of the frame/rockers/pivots etc?

    For sure.
    Are you saying you'd just transfer the build to a different frame?

    I would go bikes direct for this purpose. Fezzari is well specced, but not as well as b-d.
