the 2014 is neither slack (70/69.5) or the chainstay that short
69.5 sagged head angle with 100mm forks. Chainstays are 435mm (actual not 'effective') on the 2014 bikes, new FDs mean some sensible clearance still.
So it's slacker and shorter than many, but not as slack/short as some frame-only bikes. Suprisingly it's a tad slacker than a Canfield YS if you check the numbers and how they're measured, but the Pinnacle isn't really a 140mm fork bike. The Pinnacle gives away a whole 5mm chainstay length, the 424mm of the Canfield is measured 'effective' not actual. The Pinnacle is 429mm if you measure it that way.
it's lift the BB... Jameso you posted about 2015 model on the alloy fireline thread, are things to change?
BB is 12"/305mm with sag on a 100-120mm fork.
2015 .. a year ahead of myself haha meant 2014, sorry. That's the one online now. It's not intended to be some full-on nutter-29er, just a trail bike that works. I like how it's not too long, feels moveable and good with wider bars, the wheelbase is short enough for woodland singletrack and the front end is still solid stable on descents.
