    XTC 29er Spy Drawings

    The local bike shop says there's some spy drawings of an XTC 29er on their blog. I can't look at it....I'm traveling for work, so don't have a computer when I'm not in the office, and here in the office any site with "blog" in the url is blocked.

    Could someone take a look and post the picture here?? I'm interested....

    Yeah, I'm definately interested in a Giant 29er.
    There's rumor they'll offer a full-suspension model as well (Anthem X 29??).
    I like my current 29er for what I call "trail mix" riding: Connecting single track and gravel road riding.

    Possibly a aluminum/carbon alliance model as well?

    A carbon Giant SS 29er would be pretty sweet.

    I think in simple speak, the adjustable dropouts are a very nice touch...giving more options, as well as some very intuitive and rather purposeful elegant lines for the aesthetic treatment. Variable bearings for the head tube with a very nice tapered slant, with the hope that they choose rather a better choice of bearings to cover that job. The semi hardtail suspension is also going to be really good in absorbing the added shock with those massive 29er hoops rolling along the place with longer chainstays/ seatstays.

    Personally I would like a SS with the newer belt drive though...nice! Clad that sweet puppy up in all the latest Carbon doning cranks, bars and what have you... Im glad that they are keeping the 29er evolution to its proper niche, which is that of XC and very light AM...some may agree or dissagree but thats my simple POV.

    So far looks sweet...but please, enough with the "SPY"-shot trope though, he he he.

    Semi-hardtail suspension? What are you refering to: Like a Relish shock or a carbon rear?

    Well, there may be more than one 29er model with varying specs from top shelf to lower drawer packages in the works than what is present chaps, so keep an open mind yet.
