    Another German 29er !

    Looks like German brand Bergamont is going to introduce their 29ers called Revox at the Eurobike.
    Scroll down to last picture:

    Most interesting part are short chainstays, 429mm (approx 16.9 inches) and very low standover.

    One HT for 1200 and one for 1700 (2200 US Dollar).
    For 1700 the bike is eqipped with Fox 100 RL, DT Swiss wheelset, Formula RX brakes and XT shifters. The bike for 1200 has got cheaper wheels, Avid Juicy3 brakes and Rock shox Reba SL. I think these are very good offers for starting a run to the 29ers in Germany. Bergamont is a brand wich build good bikes for small prices.

    I was looking at two of my new German mtb mags and noticed that almost all German companies have a 29'er for 2011 (even the mail order companies). I guess the combo of multiple countries doing speed testing (Germans don't care about fun... just testing) and many pros winning on them has actually proven that they are good to ride.

    Of course, having said that, they banned 29'ers at last weekends World Cup race here in Germany. Oye!

    I care, for purely selfish reasons. When the Germans embrace 29ers, it means that there won't be any problems getting 29er stuff in Europe anymore.
