    Lenz Spankster 29er frame ?!?

    Forgive me if I have missed this,

    but is there now a 29er version of the Spankster mountaincross frame?

    I was just looking on the website ( http://www.lenzsport.com/Specifications.html ) and there it is at the bottom .

    Anymore info or has anyone tried/ got one?

    Thanks,
    Dr FG

    Thanks for the heads up DF, I didn't know anything of the Spansker in 29er guise either.

    All of Lenz's site desperately needs updating, which would get the site and all his frames spidered more prominently as it's a real shame few here have even heard of this frame.

    What chance has anyone looking for such a frame got of finding the Spansker?

    How long has it been in production?

    I think its a bit different because Lenz doesn't really do "production". From what I understand of his shop, he may have played around with some stuff to test this and felt good enough to offer it as an option, but if you order one right now you may have the first real specimen of a 29er Spankster

    I still think it is some sort of typo. The bike would be fun though: 130mm fork and 12.4" BB!

    It's been there for quite a while. I've been hoping, for quite a while, to see some discussion on that bottom bracket/rear triangle configuration, on something geared, on this board. Wasn't there a little discussion at some point on the Milk Money and rear bob?

    Exactly. How is this any different (in suspension design, travel, and looks) than a Milk Money? Perhaps those that own a MM can tell us?

    This un-pictured bike, has very different geometry than a MM with a 130mm fork.

    ETT longer than a med MM
    BB way lower (at least an inch)
    CS longer
    HA and SA are probably right where a MM would be with a fork that long.

    The photo for the 26" frame shows a more "Mothish" front triangle and rockers as well.

    I don't think the bike is a bad idea. I have been hoping/thinking about something like a Moth Money for a while. 4-5 inches of travel and burlier than the MM. I'm not sure if I would ever ride any other bike.

    Thanks for that. My thought was that basically it was the same. I guess maybe it is "close".

    A Moth Money single speed? That'd be psick! (As a certain Grand Function resident would say)

    Why so much fork on the front?
    I would have thought it would be built around 100mm max.

    I ss'd my Moth for a few rides using a Rohloff DH dual puller tensioner. Fun and different but all that squish made it difficult to find the right gear ratio where out of the saddle climbing wasn't insufferable and you didn't spin out too quickly on the flats.
