    Devinci only offering 27.5 wheelsize

    The Devinci website has been updated and the Atlas is no longer an option. They no longer have any 26" wheeled bikes, either. It looks like they've gone 27.5 only.

    Would have been nice to see the Atlas get the modern geometry tweaks that the Troy got.
    Can't wait for the snow to melt and the dirt to dry

    Seems like horrible timing, the short and slack 29er catagory is on fire. I think the Atlas was ahead of its time.

    I agree. All they have to do is make the head tube 1 degree slacker (to 68.5 with a 120 fork) and front triangle just a little longer (the slacker HTA would add some length as well), and steepen the STA a degree. The bottom bracket is low enough, and the head tube and chain stay lengths are short enough already. I set up a size XL Atlas for my brother who is 5'10" for the longer front-center, and it works really well with a flat wide handlebar and 60mm stem flipped negative. There isn't a whole lot of seat post showing though, so adding a dropper would be tough. At 6' 2.5", the XL frame is just a little too short in the front center for me to feel really confident at higher speeds.

    Be patient for a long-travel 29r from Devinci? Do tell, good man.
    Something along the lines of a Remedy or Following? That's what I'm looking for, and would rather give Devinci my ducats...

    That would be perfect, only missing a proper headbadge :P

    I'm a happy carbon '13 owner.
