    Smile Devinci Atlas

    The Atlas looks good on paper, split link DW, hydro formed tubes and a really short chainstay. Does anybody know the weight of the frame? Could not find any frame weights listed on the Devinci site. The frame has 6066 tubing and is made in Canada.

    ordered mine (frame only) last week.... so stoked! I reckon' it will be close to 5.5 lbs. though it's hard saying not knowing. I will weigh it at the shop when it arrives. hoping my build will result in 24lbs...

    I don't the weight, but I rode one this week as my buddy just bought one. VERY nimble bike...maybe too nimble. Smoothest bike I have ever been on. It just floats over everything. - See my 2x10 to 1x10 conversion (lots of pics!)

    ummmm.. that seems extremely optimistic. Based on my discussion with someone in their Quebec office, I'd expect 6.5 to 6.75 # for frame with shock.
    I am looking forward to hearing some real-world reports of the short-chainstay performance on this bike. It sure pushes all the right buttons with 142mm rear end, tapered headtube, and uber-short CS. I have been on 29ers since '04, but all have been long chainstay designs (Fisher/Salsa). I decided not to be an early adopter, though, and have chosen to build a Tallboy Carbon for this season. I'm guessing the Atlas will be prove to be an excellent choice too.

    Any news yet on how you like it. I just looked at one today and threw my leg over it (would of road it but I just had surgery)...It looks f*&king fun.

    Just got my first real ride on mine. Holy crap is it awesome. I seriously had the thought when I was riding... "maybe I should get a second one of these just to have in case this one breaks or they stop making them." I've spent a lot of time on some top shelf frames, Turner, Ibis, Lynskey and this thing easily competes directly with or beats them all. Maybe it is the short stays, I dunno, but it feels nimble like a 26" bike but with the advantages of the big wheels. Rear suspension is pretty much perfection. I never felt bobbing, worked well across all gears, good small bump compliance, took curb sized hits well, lands from jumps well without bottoming out. I have mine built up quite light (23.9lbs with race tires) and I'll be racing it in Cat 1 instead of my Ti hardtail. With some meatier tires it'd be right at home as a trail bike too.

    One small complaints is that the water bottle fit is pretty tight on my Medium frame. it works, just makes it a bit harder to put the bottle back in at race pace. Another is that the paint seems a little delicate. Wish it was anodized but I figure that would also raise the price.

    Don't wait, GET ONE!

    I don't understand why they don't make an XL size frame?
