    I will try to answer with my bad english....First, i prefer rigid bikes for a long time.My last frame was a 26'' SEVEN SOLA with a rigid PACE fork.This IMX is different and it is a great bike.In France, we have not too much 29'' but i think it will change;Some people says it is just coming from USA and it will stopped as quickly it began......

    It is a great ride, because it is a Seven and because i have great wheels.I think it is very important when you have a 29er.
    Specifications
    Frame:Seven IMX
    Fork;Skyde titanium
    Chris King aheadset
    Seven titanium stem
    Syncros titanium bar
    Shanon carbon 470mm seatpost, SDg saddle
    Crankset Shimano XTR( but soon a PMP crankset with 20-32 42 )
    XTR derailleurs and shifters
    Hope mini 160-140 brakes
    Hope pro 2 hubs+Sapim Cx ray +ztr 29 rims
    Time carbon Pedals

    I really like how the Top Tube and SEAT STAYS look to be in a straight line. I have yet to see that although some have come clos

    I've yet to locate a Shannon website, but here is a store that carries the post, though it's listed as 460mm. The key was searching "Shannon" and "tige de selle" or "tiges de selle."

    That's a $200+ seatpost.

    Beautiful bike!

    A 460mm CARBON seatpost with so much exposed would have me running scared though. I've folded a couple of carbon posts on my cross and road bikes so I'm wary of mountain use.

    Very attactive bike; it looks lean and fast. A few too many gears for me, but it still looks great!

    I really don't see what is so special about that bike .... other than the fact that it makes me drool uncontrollably.

    Dimensions?

    Just curious: Can you share the length of the seat tube, center-to-top, and the axle to crown measurement on your fork? Thanks!

    That bike is gorgeous indeed.

    You can tell it's a french bike 'coz the handlebars are 3 feet lower than the seat.
    They turn up at an event I set near St Gironne every year with bikes with 20" handlebars and neck cricks [doesn't stop them going bloody fast' all day]
