    Question for Realbiker.

    What fork is your team mate using here? It almost looks like a Carbon fork? some of the other pics look like they are using the same fork? Or are they different. Also, is your whole team using 29'ers? Even the women? I've only seen two other women on 29'ers, and they were on this forum (Mike C's and Bruce Browns significant others).

    Thats the Fork:
    Pazzaz, Braxxo, ... make them for cyclocross or trekking but the problem is due to the small length the Head angle is very bad and the bottom bracket heigth is very low so that you can't ride fast turns, .... Maximum tire size: 50 mm!

    Most of our teammates here in Austria rider 29ers the shop where the team was founded from is europes biggest 29er shop (from fisher)
    Also some of our woman (about 3) including my girlfriend are riding 29ers cause the are the best!

    I hope to help you - lukas
    It's got to be AUSTRIA !!!

    This sort of race-equipment really screams for someone to make a high-stach lower headset cup, doesn't it? Bram used a similar fork with 20 or 30mm of headset spacers to not let the front of his Nishiki drop too much. It held for as long it was needed, when teh pace 440mm came in.
    I believe Ridley does a similar, but fatter 26" disc-compatible fork. They are race-oriented in their philosophy, and promote rigid.
