    Breezer Repack: 27.5" 160mm Travel (w/video)

    Joe Lawwill, Shimano Marketing Manager, was out at Camp Tamarancho this past Saturday testing one of Joe Breeze's prototype Repack enduro oriented 27.5" rigs. The bike looked solid and "production ready." Lawwill sounded impressed with the Repack saying that it pedaled extremely well, had zero flex, and had lots of traction and had no problem with Cam Tam's 32 switchbacks, or staying planted on loose, steep climbs. Joe even took a few passes on the Flow Trail section at Camp Tam before heading up the Repack Trail on Pine Mountain. Here's some marginal quality video:

    My nearest local bike shop is dropping Giant because of their big corporate ways and dropping of 29er's, which rule the roost around here, and picking up Breezer....can't wait to see them....always been a fan.

    Yep, that's the bike that's thrown a hitch in my buying decision. It was easy before that bike was announced. After taking a good long look at the numbers, setup, etc, I can't bring myself to make a choice without throwing a leg over one of those. Problem is....I can't find one to throw a leg over.

    Years later:
    Just tried this bike. Climbs unbelievably well. Descends like a bike with far less travel. The m-link is good, the head angle is bad. If breezer survives to do another model I suggest they go to a 66.5 had angle and market it against the giant reign.
