Was reading BR's review of one of Focus' new short travel full sus 29ers. The spec is just bizarre...
Narrow flat bar, long stem, 100mm fork, long stays. Right then, its an xc race bike.
Nope. 142x12 axle, slack HA, dropper post, tapered steerer. Right... So.... Trail bike?
Anyone knows a 29er is commonly regarded as best with a short stem and wide bar, to quicken up and stablize the front end.
How can manufacturers get things so wrong?
