    If it's s*** I'm blaming Whafe!

    Well i've put my money where Whafes mouth is and ordered an AC 29er. was a tough decision as my head and heart both wanted to go with a 26er(as did my wallet cos I'll need new wheels and forks!)

    here's hoping it's as good as the hype(whafes hype that is!)

    I'm scared in case everyone thinks it'll look like crap and then I'll have to worry about it for the next 2 months!

    it's going to be pretty boring compared to the Koi-camo AFR though....just in case I need to get shot of it

    Sheesh, am feeling the pressure now dipper….

    Am under the pump.. I will take the blame..... This will get the UK riders amped on a 29er, and a great 29er FS frame.... Bring it on....

    Well I had a blast on mine yesterday, the thing rips it up for sure… Very capable bike… And for me it is fast…..

    But be careful, it accelerates really slowly, NOT!!!!! And is terrible in the tight stuff, NOT!!!! (love these comments from people whom generally have not ridden a 29er)

    Tell us the build specs, am rather interested….

    aye. it'll be available for demos. Be interesting to see how folk like it(or not)

    it'll a medium frame. If it was a 26" I'd have went large but the medium 29er is pretty much the same size as the standard large

    the medium 29 is only 5mm shorter on the TT and ST than the large 26

    going to build it with fox floats, stans/hope wheels and who knows what else. could transfer my XO gear and XTR cranks off the old bike till I decide what gearing it's going to need then might go 2X10 or even 1X10. If Hope come out with their new 10speed cassette shortly with 9>36T then 1X10 should do it.

    No problems at all with a 2.4 Mountain King, also no issues with a 2.4 Racing Ralph... Only tyres I have tried...
