    71.5░, with chainstays that go from 16.1-16.9". It's super agile but it has 70mm of bb drop so it still manages to remain pretty stable. Really fun bike to ride!

    Just got mine built up a couple weeks ago... Safety Orange Vassago Bandersnatch frame, XT drivetrain with a raceface crank and narrow wide ring, XTR trail brakes, King headset, and depending on the day... either a Niner Carbon fork or a Fox RLC 80mm. I also have a Jabber... the Wet Cat Geometry is where its at!!

    Re: Lets see some steel 29ers!

    It seems to be a few things. Even people in person think they look larger than they are.

    It's a 2.4 mounted on a 35 mm rim. So they are a pretty good size.

    The bike is slightly smaller than what most people would ride. It makes it look like all tire.

    The front fork is not suspension corrected, so the tire is tucked nice and tight to the fork crown. We're all used to seeing a few inches between the crown and tire these days, so I think this throws off the eyes.

    Combine it all and they do seem huge.

    Measured with calipers they are only just at the 2.4 mark.

    This tire mounted on a carbon 35 mm wide rim with hookless bead makes it possible to run 14 psi front and 17psi rear with little to zero rim strike even on trails with decent roots like Poto and rocks like Pontiac Lake. This helps make it ridiculously smooth and have some awesome traction. On my first ride at Poto in 2 years this weekend I was blown away. I made every climb, and no dabs (something I've never done on my fs, geared 29er). My arms and hands never hurt or got numb. I usually get serious arm pump and numbness running my rigid karate monkey and krampus from holding on so tight and the sharper impacts I feel on those bikes. They are also running the same size rim and tire combo, but with aluminum rims.

    So for the extra smoothness, I really gotta hand it to Walt.
    I'm not a believer that frame materials like steel vs aluminum make any difference or that a triangulated structure can even be made to feel supple. Now this bike really makes me question that.
    I think there are tests showing frames don't move much, so maybe it's the new bike honey moon feel!

    My Jones

    Here's my strongly beloved Jones in rather lightweight CC-Setup (thinking about a 29+ frontwheel though, maybe next year, when there are more rim / tire choices....). I ride it with much pleasure now for two years and never regretted the purchase!

    Add another Honzo to the list, and one more time saying these things are super fun. My dogfriend thinks it's super fun too.
