    As long as you don't live in the middle of the country you can probably make that dream a reality.

    17" CS on a full suspension is a great achievement but the compromise is that the seat tube looks scarily thin and ready to break...

    This is a quote about the Atlas from another thread called "Two pending bikes: SB-95 vs. Ripley help."

    I really liked the Devinci I rode at Outerbike. I would have liked it better with beefier wheels and bigger tires, though.
    Suspension is a DW split pivot.

    basically committed to buying one today (by selling my current geared race sled).
    the planned build, intended for endurance/marathon racing:
    atlas frame (upgrade to rp23 w/kashima)
    sid world cup xx fork 15mm
    industry nine xc hubs/spokes laced to crest front, arch ex rear
    xtr 3x10, xtr 11/36, xtr shifters
    xtr brakes, race, with ice tech rotors
    bontrager xxx stem
    niner carbon bars (cut to 690mm)
    ritchey superlogic carbon post (400mm)
    xtr race pedals
    bontrager rxl ti saddle
    racing ralph evo tubless 2.4 front, ikon 2.2 rear
    this is basically the build of last year's race bike, save for xx brakes on a superfly 100 with an f29; iam thinking it will come in just under 25lbs, a touch more than the fly but trusting it will ride (technical stuff, in particular), way better. i will post pictures once the frame comes in and the build is complete. psyched!

    Just got my atlas in, unfortunately the rain came with it so no dirt for now. Only several miles so far on concrete path with some staircases and park benches to play around on. Initial impressions are good but I will need a fair amount of time on the trail to form an opinion overall.

    Going to change the tires and go tubeless as sb8's are not really my thing but other than that there is not too much I am going to change other than maybe the saddle. I will write more about it when I have some trail time on it.

    Does anyone have a ride report on the Atlas? I can't find a single review where someone has actually ridden the bike and talks about the ride in any detail. I'm super curious about this bike, but just want some feedback.

    and what's the widest tire you can run on the back?

    So now that I have some time on the dirt on it (about 150 miles) I figured I would give a little write up on my Atlas RC. I will say overall I am very impressed with the bike, not blown away as I was hoping I would be, but still impressed. I think I might have set my expectations a bit high as the 11’ Epic 29 I was looking to replace was perfectly capable for me and was really happy with it and I was just looking for something different.

    I had a tough time with fit on the bike once I took it to the trails, also there was a lot of flex when mashing up hills that I suspected were the wheels and I was having to run high pressure with tubes because of my weight (210) so at this point I was disappointed with the ride but attributed it to fit and build spec and would wait until I until I got that all sorted out before jumping to conclusion. Once I got the fit sorted I started looking at the wheelset for the flex, the 24hole stock wheels were just scary for me and the next thing to go so I swapped out my Stans Flow wheels from the epic. I also had to bring the reba over as well since I did not have another 15qr front wheel. This was night and day difference and brought the frame to life.

    Now for the ride, the shorter stays are noticeable and the bike is very agile and takes rocky technical step-ups very well. The first few rides I had a problem with over correcting because it was so nimble…borderline twitchy, which is not necessarily a bad thing depending on your application as this worked very well when things got tight and twisty. It climbed well with no noticeable problems with the font-end coming up. One thing I like over other FS 29’er I have ridden is it takes mashing out of the saddle on a steep climb well without sliding out. My epic and most other FS bikes I have ridden I have always had a challenge keeping the rear wheel weighted for traction and usually staying is the saddle work best. This varies by rider but was a positive in my case. The suspension is great and I like the SP design. Very plush, good small bump compliance, and still pedaled well. It did not pedal as well as the brain I was used to but seemed to actually track a little better on bumpy climbs where the brain would lock out and bounce around. There was some pedal bob but not anything I would complain about and after experimenting I kept the RP23 pro pedal setting on 2 and left it there for the most part and worked well. One thing annoying are the pedal strikes, don’t know if this is my timing but things I would clear with other bikes have been hitting with this one.

    Other thoughts, the quality of the frame and the welds seem to be top notch. Once I matched the frame to a stiff wheelset there was no noticeable flex when mashing even for my weight. There seems to be some clearance for large’ish tires in the back. I am running a Geax AKA 2.2 on Flows in the back and there is room to spare. Built up with my flows, the reba, SPD’s and an Easton monkeylite bar it comes in at 27.3lbs, size is medium, which is closer to a large in most brands since the ST is 19.3. Overall I am happy with it, worth checking out and putting on your short list especially if the whole shorter-stay is your thing, after riding the yelli I was a fan anyway. Sorry for the long post but hopefully it helps someone, I know there are not many ride reports out there yet.

    are those stock wheels tubeless ready? not sure which is the equivalent wheel on the easton website.

    They look like they will work with stans strips according to easton, I was not sure what the specs on them were and tubeless compatibility so I emailed easton, see response below. The set did not work well at my weight but were fairly light and would probably work well for a lighter rider and someone who picks their lines better.

    Easton's response:
    "These wheels would fall under our EA30 series, which you see in our cockpit components.

    These are only available to our bicycle manufacturing partners.

    The wheels are designed to be used a cross country wheel, and like other wheels designated “XC”(e.g. EA70 XC), are not designed for extreme use, such as all mountain or freeride.

    These are hand built in the same way as our other wheels.

    Our non UST XC wheels use the standard Stan’s XC rimtape(KT01), if that is what you were referring to. Please let me know if you have any specific questions."

    my frame w/fox rp2 (large) came in at 6 lbs, 10 oz.; complete: 27lbs. w/ lightish build.
    rides great. heavier than i hoped - think it'll be my trail bike and I'll race my SS. short chainstays = manualin' a full bounce 29er! fast trail bike; not a world cup racer.

    You know what might be sweet (and a local guy is pondering this) is to get one of these as a frame only and then build it up as a 1x9 or 1x10 trail bike with a 140mm fork up front or perhaps maybe something like an adjustable fork up front.

    I bet it would make for a wicked fun east coast FS trail bike like that. I think he may be on to something. Thoughts?

    MBA review of 26"

    I recently read in MBA that the 26" version has big problems with the rear suspension toping out when climbing out of the saddle and braking. What is your take on that? Also how much did you pay for the frame. I got a quote of $2000.

    Sick ride. I demo'd one out at Interbike last year. I love how small the bike feels when you're shredding through corners or catching a little air. Seemed to climb really well too.

    the suspension works really, really well; similar to abp trek. to me, the only real flaw of this bike is that it has awesome xc traits in a trail bike weight. it's awfully quick/sharp/precise without the lightweight to make it snap. As.a trail bike, it is a bit steep/twitchy. As an xc bike, it's too heavy. I love it and am psyched to have it, but I won't be racing it as planned given it's heft. retail is $2000, that's all I'll say re: what I paid...

    Seems like the bike would be better with a 120 mm front fork. I was puzzled by the 110 mm rear travel and 100 mm front.

    I had a demo of the Dixon RC for a day. The bike was awesome! I flogged the crap out of it in the gnarly AZ trails trying to find a flaw with the suspension and couldn't, the thing climbed like a goat. Very impressed with the whole bike.

    I am changing my build entirely, putting all the xc parts on the atlas pictured above (back) onto my fly 100 for racing. the atlas is getting a reverb post, f29 talas 95/120. wider bars and a shorter stem. should make for a killer trail whip. I'll post pictures once built later this week...

    My medium has finally shipped from Canada and should be here by the end of next week. I'm planning to use this as a trail bike and endurance racing bike. It might get used for rough XC courses too. I may even race on it exclusively if I find I'm as fast or faster than my hard tail. I'll post pics/review soon.

    Got a day on the Dixon and a day on the Atlas (in that order). Love the split pivot ride. UP/DOWN...all good. The 110mm rear on the Atlas felt like plenty with 29s. The 100mm fork felt too small for the bike - my idea (posted via MMcG) is a fox34 Talas; still have the hammer down (110mm) pedal geo, with an aggressive, slacker AM/Trail button (140mm). Adding some flows (and meatier tires - Ardents 2.4/2.2 IMO) would easily correct any twitchy tendencies the bike may develop (with the larger fork/rake).

    The Atlas numbers don't lie...great stand-over, short wheel base...with stays to match. I do not subscribe to the '29 that handles like a 26' stuff (which is thrown around endlessly lately), but can say it handles as expected; a nimble bike that can rail through twisties, be thrown around and lofted over chunder...all with the benefit of a bit more wheel to stomp chatter. The bike as a racer...not so sure(?) - really feel this is a better pedal/play bike (no matter what marketing focus is). If the seat tube is weak, I will confirm it...but with the hydroforming and a lifetime warranty behind it, gotta assume it's plenty strong(?). Was able to flex its ability on Kokopelli thru Porcupine - worked every bit of the fork...rear linkage kept the rear wheel connected, when it was in the dirt

    Very interested in obtaining one asap, but have a mental-block against paying full retail:/ Any suggestion$ would be welcomed. I am trying to rationalize pressing the 'buy' button, by focusing on the lifetime frame warranty and manufacturing on this continent..kinda working - Lmk if it's not fast enough as a race bike - I have a stand waiting for it!

    Thanks for the review, one of the first I've been able to find!

    For me, I'm hoping to supplement a 21.5lb racy 29er HT, so I wanted a bike that met these criteria:

    1. 29, it was just too weird going back and forth between a 29 HT and 26 FS. Took me half the ride just to get used to the new wheel size.
    2. Strong and plush enough be used for general (fun) trail riding (in the east and for trips out west)
    3. Could be used in place of the HT for endurance (> 50 mi) events, especially if they have rough sections or long downhill sections. i.e. Shenandoah 100.

    Based on what I'm reading, I'm thinking a 120mm fork will be ideal for me 95% of the time. Maybe Ardent up front and Ikon in the back. I wish talas was 100-120-140 - I'd be all over that.

    Can one of you Atlas owners tell me longer your steerer tube is and how many spacers you're using? I have a frame on order and am trying to assess whether I need to buy a new fork/uppers. Thanks

    @44gnats - Did you get the Atlas rebuilt yet? I'm curious what you think of it with the more trail oriented build. Post some pics, too please. Thanks.

    MrXC, my medium has a HT length of 4.5 inches. With the included headset, total height is about 5 inches. Right now my fork is 7.5" and I have a 25mm spacer (on top). I'll trim excess once I decide on bar height.

    My medium frame is 6.5 lbs with seat collar (without X-12 axle).

    Still finishing my build, will post pics next week.

    Anyone know if the rear axle is compatible with the Syntace X-12 standard? I'd like to replace the rear axle with a DT swiss RWS axle.

    Someone might be able to chime in with more info on the x12 spec but all I know I tried to bring my DT RWS axle over from my 2011 epic that is also 12x142 and it would not work. Maybe I was missing something but I think I remember it being too short to thread. No big deal for me, I just had to go get a multi-tool that had an 8mm allen key in case of flats in the rear.


    An update on mine with a note on the travel, I bumped my reba to 120 and I have been liking it quite a bit, much better for my liking and a bit more relaxed but still nimble.

    Thanks, that's what I was afraid of. The pivot being part of the dropouts makes it wider than a "normal" x-12 dropout I guess.

    My build is pretty much complete. With "everyday" tires it is 24.12 lbs, as shown below with race tires it is 23.875 lbs. Build is 1x10 XTR, Fox F29 100, Hope/Crest/CX-ray wheels. Training tires are Maxxis Ikon tires with sidewall protection. Race tires are Maxxis aspen in rear and Maxxis Ikon in front (without sidewall protection). Tires are set up tubeless with stans.

    Much lighter than anticipated and so fun to ride. Was planning on using this as a trail bike but very well may race it. My "race" HT is only 2lbs lighter and beats the hell out of me.

    Are you guys running 120mm forks happy with the front end height? I have a 100mm on there now and really wouldn't want the front end any higher. I was thinking of going 120 but that would require me to run a neg stem and flat bar (I hate flat bars for some reason).

    Another note: I haven't been all that impressed with Devinci's customer service. I've asked two simple questions. First time they told me that a DT RWS skewer would work, but after more research it's pretty clear it won't (not long enough). Second I asked them the frame weight and they didn't know. How do you make a frame and not know what it weighs? I guess I was thinking worst case they could just go grab one and weigh it. But nope. I'm just worried what'll happen if I ever have a warranty claim. Any experience?

    I personally like the 120, it is more relaxed and takes the techy descents a little better and makes the bike feel a tad more on the trail oriented side of things IMHO. I was worried about the front end coming up on the steeper climbs but have not had any issues. Took the BB height up just a tad too so the pedal strikes are less frequent, or maybe I am just adjusting my pedal stroke now after being on it for a bit. I use low rise bars so I just took a small spacer away when I went to 120. Feels very RIP'ish now (closest thing I have ridden I can campare it to) the way I have it...but more agile, so it works for what I like. I don't race though....not yet anyway. I suppose if I did I would drop it back down to 100 and then take advantage of the rear linkage adjustment that steepens the HT angle.

    As for their CS, that is concerning, the few emails I sent them with questions I heard back within 1-2 days so not sure what is up there. Hopefully if a warranty need came up they would be on it.

    And as for the DT RWS thing I was working in the garage so I took a pic below with axle from the devinci and the rws from the epic for comparison for anyone interested.... it's way off.

    Good job! Rode a Devinci Atlas on Saturday

    I'm thinking about moving to a 29er and I rode a Devinci on Saturday. It was the most natural feeling of any of the bikes I tested. Just felt normal, like I didn't need to make adjustments to the bike. Very interested and have this one on my short list.

    What are the shock dimensions and tune? Considering one and I'm wondering if the RP23 (7.5x2) that I have here will fit in place of the RP2. Thanks.

    6.5x1.5. L velocity tune, 150 boost valve, M rebound.

    My frame came with an RP23. I bought only the frame, not a complete bike.

    Just finished building mine up tonight and I'm looking forward to its first ride tomorrow. A few thoughts on the frame:

    Pleasant surpises:
    Weighed less than expected, approximately 6.25 lbs for a medium.
    Beautiful finish
    Rear tire clearance for at least a 2.25

    Would be happier if they went another way:
    - Frame requires a really short seatpost. My I had to cut my dropper post down dramatically and it still may be too long. No guides for a dropper post.
    - Devinci's choice of the Campy standard upper headset bearing seems odd. Why not use the more common 41mm standard?
    - Tool less removal of the rear through axel would be preferable.

    Sorry I've not been in the 29er forums for a very long time..but I own a Devinci Dixon, and the Trek ABP's Maxle works on the Dixon. It's not the normal 142 or 150mm maxle, the Trek's Maxle is much longer. I think if you search 'dixon', I would have posted pictures of my maxle and dixon there. Btw, I got my maxle online. My local Trek dealer is a real PITA.

    I'm considering this frame for an xc-trail bike, but I ride an XL Yelli Scramy that has 640mm top tube, and the Atlas only come in L with 620mm TTH.

    Would any of the L size Atlas owner tell me what BB to top of the saddle and what saddle to handlebar distance he has? thanks!

    rides great. heavier than i hoped - think it'll be my trail bike and I'll race my SS. short chainstays = manualin' a full bounce 29er! fast trail bike; not a world cup racer.

    Which size of Superfly100 do you ride? How do you compare the 2 frames, apart from the weight? Atlas looks to be way shorter in wheelbase and not only in chainstay length, how about positioning, weight distribution and how do you feel this affects riding? Thanks again!

    i am selling my devinci (it's on ebay right now). loved the bike, but it's just too heavy (compared to the fly) for racing. other than that, it's superior to the fly in every way. the short stays are great, as is the shorter wheelbase. i ride a 19 inch fly and a large devinci; fit was easy to dial in on both. if you're trail riding, i'd recommend the devinci - if you're racing at a high level, a 7lbs frame is alot to drag around when seconds count. wish i could afford to keep both... good luck!

    I've been racing my devinci successfully at the Cat 1 level this year. It's a little out of place on the starting line next to all the carbon HTs and I'll admit the lack of carbon may have messed with my head a few times - but overall I'm convinced I'm just as fast (and more comfortable for sure) on a FS and also convinced that the extra 1-2lbs of static frame weight isn't going to slow me down measurably. *If* an efficient, carbon FS 29 with short chainstays comes along then I'd consider changing, but after riding a few different 29er bikes I like the short chainstays so much I don't want to change bikes just to save a bit of static frame weight. The Atlas is just a fun bike to ride, and that should really be the most important thing assuming you aren't getting paid to ride.

    which fork would you set on an Atlas for mountain trails riding ?

    Fox Float 120, Talas 32 95/120 or Talas 34 110/140 ?

    Devinci sets its Alas with a 100mm fork but considering my play ground I would go for an travel enlarge.
    What would you say ?

    I've been pretty happy with a 120mm fork on mine. On steep, technical trails the front end can occassionally feel a little light but not too bad. On single track the set up works fantastic.

    Anyone 6'2" tried the large frame, if so how did it feel and what size stem?

    Very tempted but worried it will feel too small.

    I'm 6'2'' too and this is the main concern that still keeps me from buying one. I'm sold on short chainstay and as long as I know this is the only 29er FS to have such short stays, and coupled with a 120mm fork the head angle would be a nice 69.5-70°. But in the biggest size it has 620mm TT, and the slack seat angle (72.2°, if it is virtual seat angle), makes for a really short reach (even shorter with the 120mm fork i'm planning)... But it may not be the virtual seat angle, since I see most of them build up with a layback seatpost: it would be interesting to know.

    I was in similar position relative to sizing. I am 6' 1 1/2" and generally right between a L and XL. But I have found that I prefer a smaller frame and have been riding a large with ETT anywhere between 24 and 24.5.

    Decided to go for it and ordered a frame and other parts from Speedgoat. Got a great deal. Frame arrived last week and it looks awesome. Plan is to use a 90mm stem and straight post. Weighed 7.0lbs with rear axle and BB. I am guessing about 6.75lbs for frame alone.

    I am flipping most of the parts from my failed carbon experiment (broken Superfly) but wanted a new fork. Went with the Fox RLC 120 and my timing was perfect as I will be getting one of the 2013 models with the new C-T-D settings. Fork shipped from Fox today, I should have by end of next week.

    I expect the bike to come in about 27.0 lbs

    I cant wait to put this bike together......and will post pics/ride report asap

    No Problem.

    I am down in Atlantic Highlands. Hope to have it built by the weekend, heading to Blue Mtn on Sunday. Bike is intended for Ringwood, Allamuchy, Waywayanda and annual trip to Kingdom Trails. This thing should be perfect for our tight, rocky trails.

    Where are you?

    I am also setting up an Atlas frame size L. Bought it used on E-bay, perhaps it was yours 44gnats? I am 6' 1/2" so I guess the Large frame should fit me well? I am also pondering about which fork to set up. 100 or 120 or the Fox with TALAS. Is the Fox Talas 95/120 much heavier than a fixed 120mm from Fox or RockShox? Any input from those of you who has allready been down this road are appreciated!

    Unless you have crazy long arms...you should be fine on the large.

    Relative to the fork, I am running the Fox 120 and happy so far. For the riding I have planned, I think the 100 would be too short/steep. I am not a fan of adjustable suspension...I am more of a set it and forget it kind of guy. If I start to spend more time on true XC stuff, I could see putting in a spacer and dropping down to 110,,,but no lower.

    Hope you recovered from Bearscat...that is a brutal race.

    I am going to put together a more detailed ride report and post a pic shortly, so far so good. I really like the bike, it is a solid and fun. It was perfect up at Ringwood. Relative to the fit, it will be close. I am at the very top end of the fit. If my torso/arms were any longer, it would likely be too short (unless I went to longer stem). I am running a 90mm stem with seat all the way back. Given STA, a lay back post would put you back to far over the rear wheel, so not an option IMO. .

    Anyone received or ridden the new carbon version of the Atlas yet? At only 2kg frameset weight, according to Devinci, It seems to have corrected the only major downside.

    I am interested to hear reports. This may be my '13 XC race bike, and I'm having a hard time finding a demo within 1000km.

    According to what I read, the carbon frame is 290g lighter then the alu one, so it shoul still be far from 2kg frameset weight. The alu frameset is 3kg in L size, so I expect the carbon to be not less then 2,5kg in M size.

    Yeah, I've seen those weight numbers too. There seem to be a few different numbers floating around the interweb review sites, perhaps from different versions of prototypes (some with mixed carbon/Al rear triangle, some all Al.). Devinci's website says 2.07kg... That does seem optimistic! Maybe they aren't including the shock. I've emailed them to clarify.

    Anybody recieved their carbon Atlas yet? I see that Fantatik Bike has a large in stock. It's on my short list but I run anglesets on my bikes to get the handling just right and these have integrated headsets. Someone needs to tell Devinci that this is not a 2002 road bike.

    I built up an alu Atlas a couple of month ago, and I'm now trying to get an angleset from him.

    I built my Atlas with a Lefty at 525mm a/c length, and I feel I'd like a slacker head angle. I see Devinci is now selling it with a 140mm fork also, but I woul not like the seat angle to be any slacker than what it already is, so an angleset may be a fine solution.

    Does anyone know if a 2.35 nobby nic will fit with some clearance for wheel flex? I really don't want to run smaller tires to get the short chainstays.

    How do you Atlas owners feel with the rear shock? I've the Fox RP23 Kashima on my 2012, but I'm not so happy with it and I'm going to swap for a Monarch RT3 or maybe an X-Fusion RLX or _RCX.
    I see in the video the new carbon frame is equipped with a monarch RT3 with an H-L tune (which I'm sure it will impossible to find aftermarket), can anyone confirm the tune setting of the 2013 Atlas' shock? I know I can't compare the tune setting of 2 different shock but it's likely much different from my original RP23 (L velocity tune, M rebound tune).

    Re: Devinci Atlas RC

    As shipped, I felt my fox shock was too soft and the bike blew through its travel too quickly, particularly later in the stroke. I installed the small spacer from the fox air volume tuning kit which has made it feel better, more progressive.

    I read about that air volume tuning for the fox, but I was not sure it was the solution. I find the shock to be too soft in the mid stroke, not in the last part as I never bottomed it out (even in some enduro-like trails). My bigger concern is in steep climbing where every small bump makes the shock dive all throug the mid travel. So maybe making it more progressive would keep it a little higher if I keep the pressure high enough but I think I'd loose some travel this way.

    Also, I find the propedal to have a very light effect, with no significant difference between the thre setting.

    I never experienced that dramatic a situation. Even with the spacer, my suspension feels softer then my old VPP bike, but not so much that it bobs or feels inefficient on rocky, rooty trails. I usually keep propedal on and at the stiffest setting. The spacer kit is inexpensive and only takes a few minutes to install.

    I've had mine about 3 weeks. This is my first FS bike. It climbs so well I have yet to lock out the suspension on a climb or feel it
    " bottom out" .

    Keep in mind that I'm a novice. I have the rebound dampening set at 1:00 and I'm running 170 psi. I weigh 205 without gear.
    I'm also running 70 psi in the forks.

    Thank you, I was asking primarily the factory tune of the shock, that is the two letters printed on the side of the can:Name:  rockshox-monarch-rt3-shock02-600x450.jpg

    I've been very impressed by this 29er.
    Unfortunately I built this Atlas this autumn with a medium size frame, a bit too short for me.
    I'm trying to sell it in order to rebuild it with a large size frame.
    It's followed with it's life time warranty.
    If you're living in France or UK you can contact me.
