    Cove Hummer Climbing Capability?

    Howdy-

    After much thought and research, I'm looking very, very closely at a Hummer frame as my next bike. My question regards its climbing capability: basically, can it climb steep stuff well? I know it's got a relatively slack headtube angle, and I plan on running a 100mm fork up front. I'd be grateful for any/all input...

    Thanks and regards,

    Jeff

    up to 130mm the bike behaves greatly

    with a 100mm fork it'll climb fine

    i've used mine on mtb marathons with 100-130mm rev's and it's been great

    did try it with 140mm pikes and its fabulous on the downs but then a poor climber
