I spent the morning demoing Giant 29ers, at an event sponsored by a LBS Giant dealer v I rode an Anthem and a Trance. Both nice. Unfortunately for the Trance the venue terrain was suited to the Anthem and the Trance was not in its element. It still held it's own up and down even using a fraction if its full travel.
I asked the rep about the 27.5" bike.
He said Vos' bike is a prototype being tested and was tight lipped about it. He clearly didn't want to discuss bikes with this wheel size within the hearing of a dealer stocked up with 29" and 26" bikes (all of which were available for demo at the event). The dealers need the chance to sell through current stock before the new flavor of the day potentially upstages them. Not too many people I saw chose 26'ers, though.
The rep also said Trek is on its way to producing tweener bikes, but didn't think Spesh will be in the game 2014. Hmmm...
This dealer just picked up Santa Cruz and said he will have Bronsons on the floor by June. If I demo one of those, I'll take it to the right place for sure
